When we start to notice something isn’t working, we want to change it – pronto! This is human nature, and it is also evidence of the fact that we can pretty much get instant gratification in almost any area of life. Hungry? You’re minutes away from a hot meal. Bored? There are numerous ways to plug-in to entertainment. Even the way we go about managing our appearance has come into the age of instant gratification. This can be a good thing! Here, we want to review how you can refresh your facial aesthetic quickly, if not immediately, with treatment in our Campbell plastic surgery office.
When you want it NOW
If you have lived long enough with lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging and you have realized you want a refresher, dermal fillers may be your best option. We offer both natural and synthetic filler products to achieve the results you want when you want it – today.
Natural fillers such as Juvederm and Belotero are made with hyaluronic acid. The tiny particles introduced into the deeper layer of skin affixes itself to water molecules that are drawn to the area. This reduces the appearance of lines and adds volume where needed for months on end.
Synthetic fillers achieve much the same result, and just as quickly, but with a different approach. An example is Radiesse, a filler formulated with microscopic particulates of Calcium Hydroxylapatite. Beneath the skin, these particles add structure for an immediate lift. Then, as they are absorbed, the Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres incite collagen rebuilding for lasting results.
When you have a Week
One of the most popular requests we get is for Botox. This neuromodulator reduces crow’s feet, worry and frown lines, and brow drooping very quickly. However, we would not want you to expect to look noticeably different right after a Botox or Dysport treatment. The skin-smoothing that results from treatment occurs over several days, as certain chemical transmissions are inhibited through the absorption of purified toxin proteins.
Because Botox and dermal fillers function differently, the two forms of treatment work well together. Not only do patients get the gratification of instant change, but they get the bonus of progressive improvement in the week following treatment.
