Cosmetic Treatments for Wrinkled Skin
The skin, the body's largest organ, shows the most visible aging changes. Patients are seeking information about treatment increasingly to improve their skin appearance. Accordingly, a growing number of products and methods are available which help this pursuit. The patient's lifestyles need to be changed first, such as reducing sun exposure, use of nicotine and improving nutrition. Other methods can be more effective only then. The following topics are addressed in this article: Kybella, Botox, laser skin tightening and dermal fillers.
Procedure Time: 20-30 minutes
The FDA approved the first and only injectable designed to contour the dreaded double chin in 2015. You will receive several small injections under your chin during a Kybella session. Usually, the fat under your chin needs only 1-3 injections per session, but in rare cases, patients may need more. Kybella sessions usually take about 20-30 minutes, and every patient needs several courses to achieve the most effective results. Most people need three to six Kybella sessions in OKC to treat the area fully. Swelling can typically occur and peaks in the next 24 hours and can last from 2 to 3 days. The good news is that when you have completed a month-long process, these fat cells do not return. No maintenance or future costs are needed.
Procedure Time: 45 minutes
Fillers are a great way to improve your look for a big event. They are good choices to restore lost volume because of aging. Their formulations structure the skin and can stimulate the production of the body's collagen. After any swelling or redness have disappeared, the volumizing results are still strong. In the first 7-14 days after therapy, redness, inflammation, tenderness and even bruising can be seen, so it is essential to have the correct treatment. The good news is that usually, the results last one year or longer.
Juvéderm is a stable injectable gel based on hyaluronic acid. This is a natural substance in the skin; hyaluronic acid helps to increase the volume and hydration of the skin. Our experts of facial aesthetics introduce Juvéderm carefully into the medium to deep skin layer of the dermis, which temporarily smooths out wrinkle and other fine lines. The dermis is the skin layer which consists of nerve endings, vessels of the blood, connective tissue, and sebum and sweat glands.
Commonly treated areas:
Nasolabial folds or bottom part of the nose to the corner of the mouth
Smoker’s lines on lips
Restylane is cruelty-free, biodegradable hyaluronic acid filler gel approved for cosmetic injections into subdermal facial tissue by the FDA. As a person gets older, the skin tends to lose its elasticity, shows wrinkles and sags. Exposure to harmful sunlight and years of muscle movement induces tissue collapse and skin volume loss. Restylane soft tissue filler is injected into the skin via small injections adds volume and smooths wrinkles and facial folds around the mouth and nose.
Commonly treated areas:
Lines near and around the mouth
The back side of the hands
Bellafill is a unique dermal filler that can stimulate collagen growth for up to 5 years to keep you young. It has polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres that are suspended within a smooth collagen gel base. Once the collagen gel is injected, the smile-line look is immediately changed. Your body uses the Bellafill microspheres over time to create a platform that can develop your natural collagen. This collagen forms a foundation which adds volume to wrinkles, reduces their appearance–and provides you with soft and smooth natural results for up to five years.
Procedure Time: 30 minutes
Botox is a muscle relaxing protein that helps to soothe wrinkles. As we age, for years the expressions we make, have left their mark on our faces. Sometimes it makes us look tired. Botox helps decrease wrinkles and refresh your appearance without an unnatural appearance. They are a purified botulinum toxin A, meaning there is no risk of botulism. They work by blocking the muscle nerves, making the wrinkles appear softer. For Botox treatment in OKC or for a better insight into it, consult our experts at Longevity Aesthetic and Laser Spa.
Commonly Treated Areas:
Furrows between the eyebrows
Laser Skin Tightening
Procedure Time: 30 Minutes
Laser Skin Tightening is a laser-source for tightening your skin, and heats collagen under the skin's surface. It makes the skin texture softer, lighter and more toned. Fine wrinkle improvement can be observed as well as visible lifting. In Longevity Aesthetic and Laser Spa, most patients see immediate and cumulative results. We, therefore, suggest that you do this a few times before any big day on your schedule. However, you'll get nice results even if you get in only one or two sessions with your last one as close as a week before the event.
ELOS Laser Treatment
The new FDA-approved procedure ELOS provides a non-operative facelift for patients. ELOS deals with the skin that is loose, wrinkled and rough, has enlarged pores, acne scars, and fine lines. Regular activity is usually resumed within one day by patients. ELOS combines diode laser energy with radiofrequency power to smooth the upper layer of the skin as it penetrates deeper layers to tighten the skin. It's less painful than previous methods such as Thermage. Thermage was the first to tighten the skin similarly, but it was very painful, expensive and required numerous treatments.
Commonly Treated Areas:
Sunspots and pigmentation
Body hair and spider vein removal
