As the years pass we look at ways of preventing the onset of inevitable signs of aging. Thanks to an established range of treatments offered with injectable implants. This is a short review about the modern ones:
BOTOX or DYSPORT
Botox is one brand of a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, a chemical toxin that is produced by Clostridium botulinum
bacteria. Although this is the same toxin that causes botulism — a type of infection that can result in life-threatening muscle paralysis — Botox is safe to use as an injectable medicine because it is used in such small quantities and injected directly into specific sites.
It’s highly effective art heating forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. Getting Botox /Dysport takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It effects on average of four or six month and result can be expected in a little as a week time. The treatment works by the blocking the signals that would normally tell your muscles to contract, so this releases the muscles and allows the skin to repair deep wrinkles from the bottom up.
This is a new technique where by placing multiple injections of Botulinum toxin along the lower jawline as well as down the side of the neck along the platysma muscle it is possible to improve the definition of the jawline, rebalance the underlying muscles and provide ‘lifting’ in the neck and jaw area.
Well defined jawline with a long neck has been a sign of beauty since the time of the Egyptians. This procedure which creates a well toned, smooth neck, and lifted jawline was named after Queen Nefertiti, whose bone structure continues to be admired in modern times.
The Nefertiti Lift works by relaxing muscles beneath the jaw which contribute to a down ward pull along the jaw.
Once these muscles are relaxed the net effect is an upward pull from facial muscles, creating a more defined looking jawline neck and face.
Restylane is a most popular non-animal alternative to collagen replacement therapy and consist of crystal – clear gel, stabilized, hyaluronic acid, which smooth wrinkles and folds and give contours, as well as providing lip augmentation. Hyaluronic acid is one of very few substances that are identical in all species and tissue types. In RESTYLANE it restores youthful resilience to your skin.
TEOSYAL is a hyaluronic acid in the form of viscoelastic gel, which is transparent and homogenous and has emerged as a compound for filling in wrinkles. As physiological constituent of dermal tissue it maintains local moisture content and is gradually reabsorbed with time.
VITAL or ZETAVISC – rejuvenation, revitalization program, which is for viscosupplementation of aging skin. It intends to supplement the hydration and elasticity of the dermis which has become depleted through age and exposure to extreme environmental conditions. Especially dry skin will benefit from this treatment, but even oily will improve and result in that fresh, natural look everybody wants.
