Types of Cosmetic Injectables
Signs of aging are caused by many contributing factors, such as excessive sun exposure, genetics, stress, facial expressions and habits, including smoking. Dynamic wrinkles form after years of muscle movements crease the overlying skin, whereas static wrinkles happen as the skin naturally loses elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid with age. Skin conditions or previous injuries may cause other facial concerns. Dr. Bounds offers a range of injectables and will match you with the right product for your aesthetic goals.
Neuromodulators: Botox®, Jeuveau®, Dysport® and Daxxify
Neuromodulators use variations of botulinum toxin Type A to target the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles: Botox®, Jeuveau®,Dysport® and Daxxify address facial lines and creases by temporarily immobilizing the underlying muscle. In the days after treatment, the muscle relaxes and smooths the skin, and the results typically last several months.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers: Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Revance RHA®
Hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally in your body with high concentrations in the soft connective tissues, skin, joints, cartilage and fluid around the eyes. The amount in your body decreases with age along with youthful proteins, such as collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid binds to moisture and gives skin the supple glow associated with youth. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid fill in skin depressions, lines and wrinkles and improve facial contours instantly for results that last up to 12 months, depending on the treated area, type of filler and cosmetic concern.
Dr. Bounds offers Juvéderm®, Juvéderm Voluma®, Restylane® and Restylane Kysse® to target most areas of the face prone to creases, folds or volume loss. Revance RHA® is a unique dermal filler line that uses resilient hyaluronic acid to address dynamic wrinkles (like neuromodulators) and static wrinkles for results that last up to 12 months.
