Injectables are extremely popular because they’re so effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Not all injectables are created equally, however, so you want an injector who understands their different applications so you get the best possible result.
When not administered by a trained professional, Botox® and dermal fillers can cause unattractive and potentially damaging results. If you’re considering Botox, Restylane®, Juvederm®, or another reputable dermal filler, trust the experienced nurse injectors at Regency Medical Spa & Hair Clinic in Barrington, Illinois.
Here’s why you want to seek out a respected, trained provider for your Botox and fillers procedures.
Botox is one brand of injectable known as a neuromodulator. These cosmetic injectables contain botulinum toxin, a purified byproduct of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
Botox temporarily halts the muscle activity that contributes to wrinkles caused by the expression — like smiling, frowning, and squinting. We inject a very small amount of the toxin into targeted muscles under your skin to soften your expression and smooth the surrounding skin.
Botox is FDA-approved for crow’s feet around your eyes, horizontal forehead lines, and worry lines between your brows. The effects of Botox last 3-4 months. Our expert team can set up a treatment schedule for you so you have consistent, beautiful results.
Dermal fillers add volume to fill in hollow contours, smooth lines and wrinkles in your lower face and plump your lips. Each brand of dermal filler and its formulations have different applications. You want a provider who thoroughly understands what each specific filler can and can’t do to get the best results and a natural look.
Some brands, like Juvederm and Restylane, work because they contain a substance called hyaluronic acid, which occurs in your body naturally but decreases with age. As your body loses optimal levels of hyaluronic acid, decreased skin structure and volume emphasize the look of wrinkles.
Other brands of fillers, like Radiesse® and Sculptra®, work differently. Radiesse is made up of opaque calcium hydroxyapatite, and Sculptra is mainly composed of poly-L-lactic acid.
Our team can recommend the appropriate dermal filler or combination of products best suited to meet your needs and give you the look you want.
