Which Cosmetic Injections Are Right For Me?
Fine lines, wrinkles and other unwanted changes in the skin are usually the first signs of aging. As the years go by, wrinkles deepen, sagging and pigmentation issues can arise, and the face begins to lose its volume and elastic, supple quality. What can be done about it?
Cosmetic injections are a very popular nonsurgical treatment to reverse the signs of age and rejuvenate the skin. With simple and quick injectables, the youthful radiance and firm, sculpted lines of the face can return. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, volume is restored to the face, and the facial features are contoured.
Which injections are right for you? It depends on your personal skin concerns, what areas you’d like to address, and how long you want the results to last. At Juno Medi-Spa, we offer a variety of injectable options to suit your needs and aesthetic goals.
Injectable Options at Juno Medi-Spa
Botox temporarily relaxes muscles in targeted areas of the face. These muscles are stuck in a contracted state, which is what causes the lines and wrinkles. Botox is made from a purified protein called botulinum toxin, which forces the muscles to relax and leaves the skin smooth and wrinkle free, lasting for a period between three to four months.
Dysport, Xeomin and Jeuveau
Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau are very similar to Botox and are based on the same purified protein. However, they each have unique qualities to them. For some patients who have built up a tolerance to Botox, these wrinkle relaxers can also be used as an alternative.
The Juvederm Line
Juvederm is engineered with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA) that helps to smooth aging skin and plump depleted facial contours. Juvederm products can be used to add volume to deflated lips, correct nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and give the cheeks a natural lift.
The Restylane Line
Restylane products are also based on HA. Restylane can be used to improve definition in the lips, reverse the downturned corners of the mouth, combat dark under-eye circles, and naturally achieve many other important cosmetic goals.
Radiesse is made of a thicker gel than most fillers, and essentially plumps the skin from underneath to provide volume where needed. Its gel contains biocompatible calcium microspheres, which are inside of our body naturally. When Radiesse is injected, it helps the body to regenerate collagen reserves, smoothing the skin and providing a stronger, more stable scaffolding for the complexion.
Sculptra is designed to restore facial volume and is made with poly L-lactic acid, which stimulates the body to produce collagen to provide a youthful, beautiful glow. Over time, Sculptra can help rebuild the skin’s basic structure, with results lasting up to two years.
Kybella is an injectable composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, found naturally in the body’s digestive system where it helps to break down fat. This formula is designed to destroy the fat under the chin and create a more youthful and contoured jawline.
Lip Augmentation Options
There are a variety of options available to plump your pout. At Juno Medi-Spa, we achieve a full, supple, but natural look.
Restylane Kysse is the newest facial filler for lips that uses a specially-designed cross-linked hyaluronic acid to achieve perfect plumpness without bumps, and longer-lasting results. It’s FDA-approved to last 6 to 9 months, but may last a full year.
