Fall is in the air, as we finally start to experience some relief from the heat of the dog days of summer. Hopefully, you enjoyed plenty of warm weather activities, including hiking, biking the Greenbelt, cookouts, and sunbathing. If you spent a lot of time in the sun though, you may have noticed that it wasn’t as kind to you as you’d hoped.
While the warmth of the sun’s glow feels radiant, unfortunately, sun exposure is to blame for many of the signs of aging, from wrinkles to sun spots and everything in between. It’s estimated that roughly 90% of aging from environmental factors is due to the sun. If your summertime fun this season left you feeling like you might need help reclaiming your youthful glow, cosmetic injectables might be right for you.
When is the Best Time to Start Dermal Fillers and / or BOTOX?
One of the great things about injections such as BOTOX® or XEOMIN® is that they can also be used preventively to stop the signs of aging before they occur. Preventative BOTOX (botulinum toxin) can be started as early as your twenties, when you first start to notice creases that don’t seem to go away with rest, relaxation, and / or increased fluid intake. Dermal fillers are also helpful at the first indication of skin degeneration to prevent the worsening of facial lines and wrinkles.
What Signs of Aging Indicate It’s Time for Cosmetic Injectables Such as Dermal Fillers or Xeomin?
Dermal fillers (Radiesse®, Belotero®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Revanesse®) help to treat the following symptoms of the aging process:
- Chin creases
- Hollowness / loss of facial volume and fullness
- Static wrinkles on the lower face
- Sunken lips
- Under-eye shadows and lower lid wrinkles
- Wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and on the forehead including marionette lines, smiles lines, and parentheses
Common fine lines and wrinkles on the face that are best treated with neurotoxins (Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) include:
- Chin dimpling
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead furrows
- Glabellar lines
- Lipstick lines
- Neck bands
Your skincare professional can help you choose whether dermal fillers or neurotoxins such as BOTOX® or XEOMIN® (or a combination of the two) is right for you after an in-depth consultation that addresses your concerns and your desired results.
