Turning back the clock on aging is now evermore possible with a growing number of injectable cosmetic procedure, such as Botox and filler choices. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2018 compilation of injectable treatment statistics, over 2.3 million injectable procedures were performed. That is an amazing 40.6% increase since 2012. At MedShape Weight Loss and Wellness, we often combine injectable treatments such as Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Bellafill, Kybella and others with many different procedures to enhance and maintain your cosmetic anti-aging results. 

As we age, there is a progressive loss of fat, dermis, and bone in our faces leaving laugh lines, smile lines, sunken cheeks, and facial creases over the areas where muscle movement occurs. Injectable cosmetic treatments can treat these lines and creases, soften the muscle movement that creates wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and in general, restore a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.

How it Works

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the quickest and most effective ways to treat unwanted wrinkles. As we age, our skin loses elasticity. This is caused by such as sun exposure, hormones, genetics and the aging process in general. The result? Skin that looks tired, stressed and older than your age. That’s where Botox comes in!

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, also called neuromodulators, stop the nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. This temporary blocking of muscle contractions is what smoothes and eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.

Untreated areas of the face remain unaffected. Side effects are rare and usually limited to the site of injection which includes mild redness, inflammation, and/or bruising (can last 1 to 7 days). Headaches after injections are also common.

Wrinkle Relaxers

Botox® remains one of the most popular anti-aging treatments. Dysport® is the newer Botox® competitor, equally effective and competitively priced.  These products are well known for their effect in relaxing hyperactive muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles between the eyebrows, in the forehead, and crow’s feet.  In addition to these common injection sites, Botox and Dysport can also smooth the orange peel appearance on the chin, reduce the amount of gum that is shown when smiling, and even treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Botox and Dysport are becoming increasingly more popular for patients in their 20’s and 30’s as a way of preventing the formation of these dynamic wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers for Anti Aging – Phoenix, AZ

There are a variety of FDA approved dermal fillers available. Two main two product are Juvederm and Restylane.  The injectable products mainly differ by thickness of product and duration of action.  Thinner fillers are used in finer lines such as smoker’s lines or under the eyes to conceal under eye bags.  Lip augmentation is generally performed with an HA filler.  Thicker HA fillers, such as Restylane Lyft and Juvederm Voluma, are appropriate for deeper lines or for filling cheeks and large hollow areas.

Radiesse is another dermal filler offered at MedShape Weight Loss and Wellness.  Radiesse is a heavier, thicker product designed to last longer than HA dermal fillers. It is FDA approved for the treatment of nasolabial folds and also for plumping up aging hands.  Radiesse is not recommended for under the eyes or injection into the lips.  The effects of Radiesse can last from one year to 18 months.

Collagen Stimulater 

Some Anti Aging Fillers are not intended to fill lines and wrinkles, but to stimulate the body to produce more collagen.  Two such products are Sculptra and Bellafill.  Although comprised of different substances, their end action is the same; creating volume where fat loss has occurred (through aging or weight loss).  Scuptra and Bellafill are the longest lasting of all injectables, lasting 2 to 5 years.

How Long it Lasts

This is a very common question and a good one to ask. The reduction in lines and wrinkles is temporary with toxins. On average, Botox and Xeomin last for approximately 3 to 4 months, while Dysport can last 4-6 months.
