While fine lines and wrinkles are a natural byproduct of aging, repetitive facial expressions and sun exposure can often make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, there are a variety of highly effective skin treatment options to lessen their appearance and help you put your best face forward in 2022.
Dermal fillers restore fullness to hollowed-out areas with hyaluronic acid-based solutions injected into the soft tissue under the skin. Filling in areas where the underlying structure has dissipated prevents much of the sagging and drooping effect that contributes to looking older.
Fillers differ in formulation for specific areas of the face, and are not only great for addressing the signs of aging, they have the ability to enhance facial features by plumping up thin lip lines and removing under-eye shadows by subtly altering facial contours.
Injectables are minimally invasive and have zero to little downtime following treatment.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, among others, are all neuromodulators designed to relax and smooth the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes and the mouth by temporarily paralyzing the muscles contributing to wrinkle formation. They will not “freeze” your face or make you void of expression, but simply prevent exaggerated repetitive movements that contribute to further wrinkling in highly prone areas.
They can also be used to make uneven eyebrows and eyelids more symmetrical, and soften the lines that contribute to a “tired” expression. The effect is dramatic and can last anywhere from three to six months depending on your lifestyle and metabolism. Botox and similar products offer the most benefit when used prior to wrinkles becoming too deeply set.
Starting in our mid-20’s, collagen and elastin start to break down causing our skin to wrinkle. Sofwave is a new, clinically proven, non-invasive approach to rebuilding collagen. Sofwave is FDA cleared for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Sofwave uses a unique delivery form of ultrasound waves, enabling a fast and safe treatment for all skin colors and can be done on the face.
Our unique, Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam Technology SUPERB™ generates heat at the right depth of 1.5mm in the mid-dermis. Additionally, there is an integrated cooling SofCool™ mechanism that protects the uppermost skin layer from burning. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response, called neocollagenesis, which increases and regenerates the collagen in the skin, leading to the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Whether you want to discuss injectables, technology such as Sofwave, or regular skincare maintenance, Kalologie MedSpa Austin offers many options for eliminating or reducing fine lines and wrinkles without surgery. Contact us today to discuss which treatment may be just right for you.
