Injectables. Sculptique Facial Beauty
There are typically two classes of injectables in use for cosmetic medical practices. They are wrinkle-disappearing neurotoxins and dermal fillers. Both do different things. First, we'll discuss neurotoxins that relax facial muscles and create a sustainable younger appearance.
The most popular medical neurotoxins in use today are BOTOX Cosmetic® and Dysport®. Both of them have been around for a while, are well known, very effective, and are a popular non-surgical choice to reduce frown lines and wrinkles. These prescribed injections block the muscular nerve signals which weaken the muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles. Once the neuro-transmitting signal to the muscle has been shut off, the muscles that cause the wrinkles no longer pull on the skin, and the wrinkles, creases, and crow's feet subside. The end result is a more youthful and natural look for many patients desiring to look good.
Dr. Jennings uses a very thin needle and precisely injects the solution so that it targets only wrinkle-producing muscles. The 10-20 minute procedure will yield improvement seen by the patient in two or three days. Most patients see the effects lasting 4-6 months.
Fillers work differently. Dermal fillers are made with cross-linked hyaluronidase. This results in facial volume correction and rejuvenation with a natural appearance that is long-lasting. These "volumizers" are comprised of naturally occurring substances found in our bodies or biocompatible substances (hyaluronidase and collagen, collagenase) that fill the voids that occur with aging. When we age, facial tissues thin out with volume loss and lines formed around the nose, mouth, and cheeks begin to hollow.
Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Revannese® are popular primary fillers used in aesthetic treatment offerings in Sculptique Facial Beauty "Neck Up" treatments.
