"Wrinkle Reducer" & Filler Combination Patient #9 at The First Glance

Why Should I Have a Filler and “Wrinkle Reducing” Injection Combination?

If your like most people, you’ve noticed that as you age, your facial appearance changes. While most people are aware of how repeated facial expressions (like smiling or frowning) , sun exposure and hormonal changes may cause noticeable lines and wrinkles, many are not aware of the role that hyaluronic acid plays in the aging process.

As we age, our skin begins to lose volume, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. It is the moisture that helps hydrate the skin and creates facial volume. Hydration, volume, and elasticity (from collagen) result in a youthful, healthy looking appearance.

When you get the wrinkle reducing and hyaluronic acid combination you are not only preventing future wrinkles from forming with the Neuromodulator ( wrinkle reducer), but you are adding volume to the face in areas where your collagen has been reduced and broken down. This combination reduces and improves deep set lines and hollow looking areas of the face.

Tell me about the “wrinkle reducing solution”?

Neuromodulators or “wrinkle reducers” disrupt the communication between the brain and the nerves. In doing this it reduces muscle movement which prevents deep set lines from forming and gives you a youthful appearance.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid (filler) is a natural substance that is found throughout the body. It gives, for example, volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eye its shape. Hyaluronic acid can be injected in multiple areas of the face.

 

What is the treatment like?
The treatment is a very easy and quick process. Since no pre-test is required, the treatment can be carried out immediately and takes between 15 and 30 minutes. The injections result is instant where as the neuromodulator can take up to a week for full results.

Is it painful?
This is very individual depending on how sensitive to pain you are. The filler injections may prick a little but normally no anesthesia is needed for the treatment of wrinkles. Different injection sites can be more uncomfortable than others, therefore a freezing such as Lidocaine (dental freezing) may be injected prior to the treatment. As for neuromodulators, a neonatal needle is used so pain is minimal and no freezing is required.
