As one year closes with a heartfelt season of togetherness, generosity, and reflection, another year opens on the blank page of a new chapter — and you get to decide what comes next.
No matter what your goals for the New Year happen to be, chances are you’d like to pursue them with energy and enthusiasm. Now’s not the time to let a few bothersome lines and wrinkles derail your confidence or diminish your vitality, especially when Botox® and dermal fillers can rejuvenate your skin — and leave you looking younger — in no time at all.
As two of the most popular anti-aging treatments available, Botox and dermal fillers are widely considered the go-to solution for bothersome facial wrinkles, lines, and creases. At Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center in Florence, South Carolina, Dr. Edward O’Dell and his aesthetics team offer both Botox and fillers to revitalize your look.
In 2018 alone, more than 10 million adults in the United States turned to minimally invasive cosmetic injectables to help them erase the most common signs of aging and take years off their appearance. Here’s how they can help you do the same.
Erase fine lines and smooth your skin
When it comes to erasing the fine lines around your eyes and the deep wrinkles that line your forehead, nothing beats Botox Cosmetic.
Made from the natural bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox is a highly purified therapeutic agent that smooths the wrinkles right out of your skin by blocking the nerve signals that keep your expressive facial muscles in a perpetual state of contraction.
When Botox is injected at specific points across your brow and at the outside corners of your eyes, the underlying muscles relax, the overlying lines and wrinkles disappear, and your skin looks naturally fresh.
Botox can smooth out the deep vertical furrows between your brows (angry 11s) that make you look upset when you’re not; it can also erase the horizontal worry lines across your brow and the laugh lines (or crow’s feet, depending on your perspective) at the corners of your eyes that seem to multiply with each passing year.
Although Botox can’t lift and tighten your skin, enhance your natural features, or correct deep wrinkles around your nose and mouth, dermal fillers can achieve all those goals — and more.
Banish deep wrinkles and add volume
Whether you’d like to smooth out prominent nasolabial folds (parentheses lines) around your nose and mouth, erase vertical lip lines, or subtly enhance the natural contours of your face, dermal fillers are a safe, quick, and easy way to get beautiful, long-lasting results.
Made from hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other purified substances, dermal fillers can be used to counteract a variety of common age-related facial changes, ranging from deep wrinkles and fine lines to sagging skin and soft tissue volume loss, otherwise known as facial deflation.
Facial deflation, a natural process that typically starts just before middle age, makes your cheeks and lips seem noticeably flatter and thinner than they once were. It can also lead to increased skin laxity, more fine lines, and deeper, more prominent wrinkles.
Depending on your goals, you can use dermal fillers to correct age-related soft-tissue volume loss, lift and tighten lax skin tissue, or significantly diminish the deep lines around your nose and mouth. You can also use them to delicately flesh out your cheeks or enhance your lips.
At Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center, we use all-natural Juvéderm® hyaluronic acid fillers for beautiful, long-lasting results. This leading collection of versatile fillers can erase fine lines and diminish deep wrinkles instantly, add volume subtly, and revitalize your skin from the inside out.
Botox and fillers: A winning combination
While it’s possible to take years off your appearance with a few micro-shots of Botox or one carefully chosen dermal filler, skillfully combining the two is the best way to achieve total facial rejuvenation.
Combining Botox and dermal fillers doesn’t just erase fine lines, diminish deep wrinkles, and revitalize your skin; it also corrects the structural facial changes that make you look older than you feel. Luckily, it just takes one quick and easy treatment to achieve beautiful results that last for months.
