You don’t need to wait until 2024 to look and feel your best. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments with Botox, Dysport, Juvéderm, or Restylane injectables can help you start the new year looking younger and refreshed. Our board-certified plastic surgeon can smooth superficial and deep wrinkles and restore lost volume with neuromodulator injectables or dermal fillers in St. Louis.
Injectables Offer Immediate or Near-Immediate Results
Juvéderm and Restylane dermal fillers offer immediate results, so you can leave your appointment at BodyAesthetic with fewer wrinkles and more facial volume than when you walked into our office. These dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance found in your body’s soft connective tissues, cartilage, eyes, and joint fluids.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are one of the most popular types of injectables because they are made with a naturally occurring compound. Full results from Juvéderm or Restylane may take up to two weeks, but you’ll notice more volume and smoother skin immediately. These dermal fillers are best used for status wrinkles on the skin’s surface and volume loss, including frown lines, marionette lines, facial scarring, smoker’s lines, cheek depressions, and nasolabial folds.
Botox and Dysport contain botulinum toxin, a diluted neurotoxin that can freeze the facial muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, front lines, and crow’s feet, caused by years of smiling, frowning, or squinting. Botox and Dysport results take two to four days because the toxin needs time to relax the muscle, and the overlaying skin smooths out as the muscle movements decrease. Full results from these neuromodulators take up to two weeks.
Injectables Require No Downtime
Some people may be apprehensive about having non-surgical treatments just before the holidays. What makes injectables an ideal solution for fast anti-aging results is the fact that these products require zero downtime. You can have Botox or Juvéderm treatment between your holiday shopping or over your lunch hour and resume your day right afterward.
Cosmetic injectables involve a quick and simple procedure that takes less than an hour. You may have some swelling, injection site irritation, or other mild concerns, but these side effects are short-lived, and most people return to work or regular activities right away. There are some activity restrictions for the first 24 hours, including avoiding head massages, hot tubs, saunas, and tanning booths. You should not lay down for three hours after injectable treatment and should avoid rubbing your face for 24 hours to avoid migrating the injected gel to an unintended area.
Enjoy Dermal Filler Results for All of 2024
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as the Juvéderm filler family and Restylane, provide long-lasting results. You can enjoy more facial volume and youthful skin for six to 18 months. Juvéderm Voluma offers results for up to two years. Smoothing wrinkles and other signs of aging now can ensure you enjoy a youthful complexion for all of 2024 or even longer.
Botox and Dysport results typically last three to four months and require maintenance treatments for long-term facial rejuvenation.
