Thinking About Botox and Injectable Filler?
With the growing popularity of the cosmetic surgery industry, there are several anti-aging products and procedures that are available and many consumers feel unsure which methods are most effective. Dr. Torgerson, a facial cosmetic surgeon in Toronto, offers effective and non-invasive techniques that are available to help you look younger and feel refreshed while maintaining your natural appearance.
The first option that can be employed is the use of injectable fillers. As part of the aging process, collagen in our skin diminishes, causing us to losefacial volume that helped us look fresh and vibrant. Injectable fillers are a safe and instant solution to help rebuild lost volume and restore the skin’s youthful appearance. Dr. Torgerson prefers to use injectable fillers such as Restylane, Teosyal and Juvederm, which contain hyaluronic acid (HA). Hylauronic acid is a naturally occurring protein in the soft connective tissue of the skin.These injectable fillers typically last 6-9 months and are the most popular fillers used for men and women alike.
HA Injectable fillers are easy to use and can be injected in almost any area of the face. A popular new area to use filler in is the tear trough (under the eye) area to smooth out the hollowness that appears with age. Filler such as Restylane is also highly effective for adding volume to the lips, correcting the marionette lines and smoothing the fine lines above the lip. Perlane and Juvederm Ultra Plus, which have thicker consistencies, are perfect for filling larger areas such as sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds (the area between the nose and the mouth). If you are looking for an affordable, effectiveand less invasive way to diminish these signs of aging, injectable fillers can be a wonderful solution that provide an instant result with minimal downtime.
Another method that has been around for over 10 years is the use of Botox®. When administered by a licensed professional, Botox® is extremely effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles as it works to relax muscle activity that causes the aging of the skin. Using Botox regularly willprevent the formations of fine lines and wrinkles and soften existing ones. Normal facial expressions can still be made and after 3-4 months, a repeat treatment appointment should be made. Dr. Torgerson typically uses Botox®in the forehead region, eyebrow area and around the eyes to diminish the crow’s feet (the wrinkles that appear in the corners of our eyes). The treatment takes only approximately ten minutes and the results take effect within 4-6 days.
