These three cosmetic options from Associates in Dermatology will help you start off 2017 with beautiful skin.
There are three ways you can give yourself the gift of beautiful skin.
Sparkling jewelry, a comfy sweater or a designer purse may have been on your holiday wish list. But what do you truly want for 2017? How about a smoother, tighter, more youthful complexion?
It’s been said that a genuine smile is the most glamorous accessory. But those marionette lines and pre-jowl folds that form around the mouth as you age can do a number on your otherwise gorgeous grin. That’s when you need Radiesse®. Formulated with tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel, this popular and highly effective dermal filler temporarily restores volume, smoothing the lines and plumping the sagging skin that forms around your smile and in the chin area. Over time, Radiesse® actually works to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, the structural protein that keeps the skin’s underlying connective tissue strong and taut. The result is a long-lasting, youthful look.
Life in general can be stressful. Unfortunately, much of that stress can ultimately manifest as wrinkles and fine lines that prematurely age and mar your youthful look. Xeomin® is a prescription medication that utilizes Botulinum toxin type A to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles. It is a highly effective solution for glabellar frown lines – those two vertical lines that form between your eyebrows after years of frowning, squinting and stressing that make you look older and angrier than you truly are. Xeomin®, just like Botox®, works by relaxing the nerve endings in your muscles, thereby preventing certain muscle fibers from contracting. Reduced muscle contraction leads to a visible smoothing of the lines and furrows that have formed in your skin over time, virtually erasing years from your look.
Each day, exposure to the sun’s damaging rays as well as a myriad of environmental pollutants subject your skin to a barrage of unhealthy and unflattering effects. Topping the potential troubles is the gradual loss of hyaluronic acid, the naturally occurring fluid in connective tissue that helps keep your skin smooth and taut. As a result, the skin becomes dehydrated and the elastin and collagen fibers lose their integrity, leaving you with dry, thin, loose and wrinkled skin. A top solution is Juvederm®, a biodegradable gel that replaces hyaluronic acid, infuses collagen and elastin with new moisture and restores volume, all in less than an hour and requiring no downtime.
So give yourself what you really want this year: a youthful, healthy and vibrant look. Our team of dermatology providers can help you decide which treatment will best help you start 2017 beautifully.
