Injectables are a minimally invasive way to reduce the looks of wrinkles and fine lines and furrows. At Heron Med Spa, we do this by either injecting dermal fillers into the skin or by relaxing the muscles beneath the wrinkle, as can be seen in Dysport and Botox treatment by Old Town Alexandria VA.
Facial Fillers Old Town Alexandria VA
Facial fillers by Old Town Alexandria VA include Restylane. Our treatments of Restylane near Old Town Alexandria involve injecting hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin. Hyaluronic acid fills the empty spaces between elastin and collagen, which are types of protein that keep skin supple. But like elastin and collagen, time, wear and tear eventually deplete a person’s store of hyaluronic acid, which leads to wrinkles and lines.
Hyaluronic acid treatments such as Restylane by Old Town Alexandria work by lubricating and cushioning the structures of the skin and protecting them from damage.
Botox Treatment Old Town Alexandria VA
A client who decides to use Botox to treat signs of aging is injected with a purified form of the botulinin toxin. This toxin paralyzes muscles interrupting signals sent by neurotransmitters. When the muscle is paralyzed, the wrinkle above it smooths out. Patients usually have three or four treatments of Botox spaced a few months apart. The effects are said to last six months, but some people claim they last much longer. This is because the repeated injections of Botox “teach” the muscle to relax, and that relaxation becomes semi-permanent.
Dysport Old Town Alexandria
Dysport by Old Town Alexandria is also based on the botulinin toxin. Patients claim it works faster. It is often used to treat wrinkles in the forehead.
