Every person entering their 20s or 30s wishes to experience graceful aging. What does it mean to age gracefully though? Well, as you grow older, you begin to notice permanent smile lines, forehead lines, and a bunch of wrinkles here and there. These are common signs of aging that can add years to a person’s appearance. Although when it comes to aging gracefully, the main things that count are when those lines are beginning to form and how quickly they settle onto your face. You want the process to be gradual rather than over the span of just a few years.
Now, there is no reason why you can’t age as gracefully as you want. Even if your wrinkles and fine lines begin developing in your 20s, you can go ahead with a variety of non-surgical preventative measures that will keep making you look youthful.
You can get botox in Orange County along with a bunch of other non-invasive, anti-aging treatment options to smooth out any creases and rejuvenate your skin while maintaining a natural look. We at OC Beauty Medspa make sure that each and every one of our clients get that wrinkle-free look without looking too plastic.
Until then, here are some treatments we offer that will help you age in the best way possible.
Injectables have been popular for quite some time now. They have been around as a wrinkle-reducing treatment and are known for their effectiveness and minimal intrusiveness. Even though injectables used to be extremely highly-priced back in the day, you can find them to be much more accessible now and even moderately priced. However, before you opt for a clinic to get them done, make sure the aestheticians there know what they are doing. You don’t want your injectables to look too plastic and fake!
Botox is a type of injectable and is known around the world for its anti-aging benefits. With the help of a skilled and experienced provider, such as OC Beauty Medspa, this FDA-approved injectable can effectively and, most importantly, safely relax your crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, giving you a youthful and refreshed look.
It basically targets the muscle around the wrinkle rather than the wrinkle itself. Botox has an active ingredient called clostridium botulinum, which is essentially a neurotoxin that relaxes the muscle around the facial crease by causing muscle paralysis. The treatment takes about one to two weeks before it fully takes effect and you will begin to notice that there will be zero to minimum muscle contraction when you smile, squint, or even frown. This causes the wrinkle to smooth out over time. Although this treatment is not a permanent solution, requiring touch-ups after every three to six months.
The other and equally popular method of aging gracefully is fillers. They are also injectables but work quite differently as compared to Botox. Fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, don’t cause muscle paralysis in order to get the treatment to work but rather use an active ingredient of Hyaluronic Acid. It is actually something that is produced by the body itself but tends to diminish as you grow older.
Injecting hyaluronic acid directly into the face significantly hydrates your skin and plumps up the skin cells while also stimulating its production in your body. This leads to you having fuller skin cells, which further promotes smoother skin and a visible decrease in the targeted wrinkle. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can be applied alone or in combination with a procedure like Botox. Similarly to Botox, you are advised to get touch-ups every few months in order to maintain that youthful look.
Other than that, there are sculpting injectables as well, such as Sculptra. Rather than Hyaluronic Acid, it promotes the production of collagen in your skin and enhances its firmness.
Collagen is another substance in the body that slowly decreases as you age. So, when you get sculpting fillers, you will basically be increasing collagen production and targeting the foundation of your face, which lies just underneath the topmost layer of your skin. It also differs from regular fillers in a way that its results can last up to two years without any touch-ups.
If you don’t want anyone noticing your wrinkle-reducing treatments outright, there are two fundamental things you need to keep in mind. First, you must choose the right clinic that uses the highest quality products when it comes to its treatments. Second, you must choose the right type of treatment for your specific concern.
When you reach out to us regarding your fine lines and wrinkles, our specialists will make sure to assess them properly and provide you with a solution best fit for your condition. This ensures that you go out looking fresher and tighter and, of course, satisfied.
Although before that, you must know that Botox is commonly used for straight lines found between your eyebrows. They are not the best treatment to fill in hollow cheekbones or even to plump up the lips. Similarly, fillers are best used for volumizing the lips and smoothing out the area around your mouth. You can’t expect them to work as effectively when it comes to treating forehead creases.
Your dermatology expert must have all this pertinent knowledge and should be able to advise you accordingly. They should further be able to tend to all your concerns and take you step-by-step through the procedure. Once you are sure that the specialist is addressing all your concerns and is knowledgeable about different procedures, there is nothing for you to worry about.
