Botox and Dysport are purified neurotoxins that temporarily eases the activity of muscles that etch lines and wrinkles into your skin. It’s used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and frown lines between the eyebrows. This treatment has been well-studied and is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Life’s Cycle offers the Allergan line of fillers called Juvéderm®. These products contain hyaluronic acid (HA) -- a natural compound your skin produces in great volumes in your youth -- to provide hydration and plumpness to skin cells. As you age, HA production wanes, leaving your skin looking dehydrated, thin, and wrinkled. Dermal fillers restore hydration, softness, and skin strength.
The fillers are administered via injection, but the treatment requires no incisions or blood loss. The results are temporary but quite effective.
Dermal fillers treat skin several skin concerns associated with aging. You may use dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of:
Dermal fillers can also plump up hollowing cheeks and thinning lips.
Dermal fillers give you temporary anti-aging benefits, but you can always have retreatments so you maintain your look. Expect the effects to persist for 6-18 months depending on the formula used, how your body reacts, and the area that’s treated.
Regular treatments are rewarded with the Brilliant Distinctions® program where you accumulate points for savings on future treatments.
Application of dermal fillers does use a needle, so you feel a slight pinch. Topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area prior to injection. Most fillers contain lidocaine to offer a numbing sensation and ease any discomfort.
