The development of fine lines and wrinkles occurs as skin laxity increases. The aging process causes numerous changes throughout the body, including a decline in collagen and elastin production.
These proteins are primary contributors to the health of soft tissues, including the skin. Collagen and elastin fibers beneath the skin’s surface provide support and elasticity. As these fibers deteriorate and the production of these proteins declines, skin becomes lax, and wrinkles appear. Allura Aesthetics offers advanced and minimally invasive treatments to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles in Boynton Beach, FL. These treatments involve little to no downtime and effectively treat and prevent dynamic and static fine lines and wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles are often categorized by how they develop. While static lines are caused by gravity pulling on the skin, dynamic wrinkles appear as a result of repetitive movements. Dynamic wrinkles on the face may include crow’s feet, frown lines, or smile lines which occur due to the facial expressions we make on a daily basis. The identification of dynamic versus static wrinkles can facilitate more effective treatment.
Allura Aesthetics offers neuromodulator injections to treat and prevent dynamic fine lines and wrinkles.
Neuromodulators temporarily restrict muscle contractions in target areas to prevent the facial movements that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. The restriction of these movements allows the overlying skin to repair itself as well as prevent further development of dynamic wrinkles. While these treatments are comparable in terms of treatment time and results, there are subtle differences that may make one a more beneficial option for your specific concerns.
Neuromodulator injections can take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections administered. Many patients notice an improvement in treated areas soon after their appointment, though full results can take two to ten days to appear. Your neuromodulator results can last three to six months and can be maintained with follow-up treatment.
Botox is the original botulinum toxin injectable treatment, having hit the market over ten years ago. Its ability to safely and effectively deliver results has made it a household name. Botox may become less effective when used over a long period of time. However, the transition to an alternate treatment in this category can provide continued treatment and prevention of dynamic wrinkles. Full results appear within seven to ten days.
Xeomin does not contain accessory proteins, making it an ideal long-term option. The absence of an accessory protein also reduces the risk of allergic reaction or rejection by the body. Xeomin also spreads farther faster to affect a larger area. Results appear within five to six days.
Dysport is a common treatment choice for patients who are no longer achieving optimal results with Botox. Dysport spreads more than Botox, allowing it to treat a slightly larger area. Both Botox and Dysport contain accessory proteins that the body can generate antibodies against over time, reducing treatment results. However, this decline in results takes years of routine treatment to develop. Results can be seen in as little as two to three days!
Allura Aesthetics offers a variety of treatments for reducing the appearance of static wrinkles to effectively treat your individual needs.
Vi Peels are customizable and include special formulas for specific concerns, though these peels significantly improve the overall quality of the skin. These leading chemical peels are especially effective for treating signs of aging.
Chemical peels involve the topical application of a chemical solution to cause controlled damage to the epidermis. The outer layers of skin slough away in the days following treatment to stimulate healing and renew the skin’s surface with new, healthy skin cells.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which tiny sterile needles create micro-wounds throughout the treatment area to stimulate skin repair and collagen production. The space between each wound allows for faster healing than other treatments that affect the entire surface of the treatment area.
Morpheus8 combines microneedling with fractional radiofrequency energy treatment to produce substantial subdermal adipose remodeling, or the repair of protein support structures within the skin.
Dermal fillers deliver immediate volume to areas displaying signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and skin laxity. These injectable treatments offer immediate and long-lasting results.
