When it comes to wrinkle relaxers, most people are familiar with Botox. However, Dysport and Xeomin are alternatives that contain the same primary ingredient: botulinum toxin A. Xeomin is a naked injectable, meaning that it has no additives in its formula. Botox and Dysport do contain different additives, creating subtle differences in each brand’s clinical outcomes. All of these injectables help to reduce wrinkles in the upper face, such as brow lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. They do so by relaxing muscles in the upper face to minimize folds in the skin. Lines and wrinkles in the eye area are softened for a more youthful appearance. Results last about three to four months. Our providers will guide you to the right wrinkle relaxer for your skin type and goals. We can even help you with “prejuvenation,” utilizing Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport to prevent common types of facial wrinkles before they develop.
Facial volume is naturally lost with age as fat deposits beneath the skin deplete and the skin loses its elasticity. Fillers are injectables that restore that lost volume in the mid and lower face. Most facial fillers, including Belotero, Juvederm, and Restylane, feature hyaluronic acid (HA) among their active ingredients. HA is naturally produced in the body already, so it’s a biocompatible ingredient that helps to fill in areas of lost volume in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, and chin. Radiesse is another filler available here at AMG Aesthetics that works a little differently. It is a collagen stimulator that boosts the body’s natural collagen production to tighten and smooth the skin. With any facial filler, our providers will blend both art and science to administer injections accurately and precisely for the most natural contours and beautifully youthful results.
