Prevention is indeed better than cure. However, the older we get, no matter what we do, it is inevitable that wrinkles will appear. Although your skin will give way to gravity as you age and start to have wrinkles, there is the hope of maintaining a youthful look. Your Sky Vein & Aesthetics specialists have found a way of restoring youth by reducing wrinkles temporarily through non-surgical cosmetic treatment. It is usual for you to feel concerned about the fine lines that form on your skin due to aging, but learning about modern treatment procedures that might help you renounce your real age is vital. Your self-esteem and confidence must never be allowed to drop.
About Xeomin Injections
For moderate and severe frown lines found between the eyebrows, one way of wrinkle reduction is by using Xeomin injections. Dr. Harrison, an experienced aesthetic expert, uses this clinically-proven anti-wrinkle injection, containing an active ingredient of botulinum toxin type A, therapy to restore youth to the skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
The process begins with Dr. Harrison creating a personalized treatment plan for you and reviewing it with you during your consultation to prepare you for what to expect.
It then takes about 10-20 minutes for him to make the injections into the affected areas of your skin. These injections sometimes cause temporary redness at the entry sites, but nothing a little makeup can’t fix. To give more excellent dramatic rejuvenation, Dr. Harris may sometimes pair the Xeomin injections with dermal fillers like Radiesse.
You will then be advised to avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours after treatment.
In just 2 weeks, the treatment’s full effects will be seen, although improvements will be noticeable within the first 3-4 days following treatment. However, treatment is not permanent and only reduces and maintains the youthful appearance for 3-4 months. Once the effects start wearing off, Dr. Harrison recommends you to schedule your next session. Repeated Xeomin injections ultimately prevent new wrinkles from forming, which helps you appear younger.
PDO Smooth Threads
Another option for wrinkle reduction is PDO’s use in outlining the lips, smoothening the neck area, and getting rid of deep and fine lines. Pre-loaded in small hypodermic needles, PDO smooth threads are synthetic absorbable surgical medications containing polydioxanone and are usually placed under the skin. They are widely used when performing wound closures. When implanted in the body, within 4-6 months, the skin will have absorbed it fully. They are safe and are used to stimulate collagen production, prolonging their filling effect on the skin.
Wrinkles can provide proof of the time and experiences we have had in our lives. However, each of us is concerned with taking care of and maintaining our physical appearance. If you are ready to redefine your looks and appear younger than you are, this can be achieved by prevention methods including the introduction of an anti-aging skincare routine. Schedule your wrinkle reduction consultation with Dr. Harrison and jump-start your journey towards wrinkle reduction.
