If you’ve come to the conclusion that some sort of facial rejuvenation skin care procedure in Los Angeles is right for you, you might be asking a very simple question: which one? There are a wide variety of injectable dermal fillers that can fill your skin care needs, and the choices can be a little overwhelming. Your doctor will walk you through your assorted skin care options at your initial consultation. At that consultation you’ll be able to ask questions and the doctor will evaluate which skin care procedure is right for your specific needs. Patients who are curious, however, might benefit from a brief overview of the various types of injectables and which problems they address.
Some possible skin care procedures include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: The most well-known injectable, Botox is made from a diluted form of botulinum toxin type A. It temporarily relaxes muscles, smoothing out wrinkles and preventing new wrinkles from forming. It lasts for up to four months.
- JUVÉDERM®: Made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acids, Juvederm is longer lasting and provides a smoother, more natural appearance than other fillers. It smoothes facial lines and wrinkles from the forehead and around the eyes, nose and mouth.
- RADIESSE®: A mixture of biocompatible calcium microspheres and water. Restores facial volume lost as a side effect of the aging process. It will firm the skin and fill in wrinkles.
These are not your only injectable options. Dr. Martin O’Toole will also discuss other injectable fillers with you and decide if they are right for your specific skin care needs.
