New York, NY, May 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- As our face is the first thing we present to the world, it's natural to feel as though it should look its best. However, with age comes wrinkles, facial lines, crow's feet and more - all telltale signs of aging. More and more patients are deciding to do something about it, and minimally-invasive injectables are among the most popular procedures that offer a solution. These injectables, including BOTOX and dermal fillers are on the rise, and are all performed at Dr. Howard D. Sobel's Skin and Spa Cosmetic Surgery Center.
Wrinkles can appear on our face due to a number of different factors - mainly aging and our natural expressions. Every time we smile, frown, or furrow our brow, we're creating lines and wrinkles on our face. BOTOX and dermal fillers like JuvÃ©dermÂ® and RadiesseÂ® work to get rid of these lines, albeit by slightly different methods. People are no longer afraid to approach these cosmetic procedures and as a result, they're experiencing a spike in popularity. BOTOX was named the most popular minimally-invasive procedure of 2012 with over 6 million procedures performed, and soft-tissue fillers came in at just under 2 million. Patients are flocking to these procedures, and for good reason - they're effective in reducing unwanted signs of aging.
While many think that BOTOX and dermal fillers are the same thing, this is actually not the case. BOTOX involves the injection of botulinum toxin into selected muscles in the face. It works to relax these muscles, smoothing the skin above. Dermal fillers work to actually fill in areas of lost volume, and are typically made with hyaluronic acid, collagen, fat, and more. Both procedures are minimally-invasive, only requiring simple injections into the targeted areas, and both work to reduce signs of aging and enhance a person's overall appearance.
Both BOTOX and dermal fillers offer a number of patient-side benefits, with the main one being their ability to smooth out unwanted lines and wrinkles. Compared to traditional plastic surgery, these procedures are also much more affordable, allowing patients to look years younger without expensive, invasive surgeries. As they're minimally-invasive, they can be performed quickly and easily without the need for anesthetic or sedation. BOTOX has even proven helpful in the treatment of migraines, excessive sweating and more.
For those who are unhappy with aging's effect on their skin, BOTOX and dermal fillers present strong treatment options. While these minimally-invasive treatments are safe and effective, they should always be performed by a properly trained and experienced doctor for the best results.
