- Posted on: Jul 13 2012
In today’s world, time is at a premium! Today’s patient wants a way to achieve knock-out results less-invasively and with little or no downtime. Thankfully, cosmetic medicine has stayed true to the times. Where in the past, surgery was the only real option for shaving off a few years, today, we can offer a host of powerful “quicker fix” solutions.
So, is there really such thing as a “lunch break cosmetic procedure?” There are several! Want to find out what other patients are choosing? Here are 3 Quick Fix Cosmetic Treatments You Need to Know About:
- Dysport®: Sort of a lesser-known cousin of BOTOX®, Dysport works in a very similar way. Essentially a muscle relaxer, the procedure works to dramatically reduce the appearance of what are called “dynamic wrinkles.” These are the creases that form when you smile, frown or look puzzled. Taking only a few minutes, Dysport treatments require no anesthetic and recovery is usually immediate, allowing you to return to work and resume your normal daily activities that same day.
- JUVÉDERM®: JUVÉDERM is a safe, effective gel that restores volume to the skin and smoothes away facial wrinkles and folds. Composed of a substance called hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM has a smooth consistency, allowing for easy injections. Though not a permanent solution, the results of this procedure can be seen right away and can often last for up to a year.
- Restylane®: Restylane is a soft tissue filler used to smooth wrinkles, shape the face and sculpt lips. With its unique ability to bind with water, the effects of Restylane can often last several months. The most common treatment areas are between the eyebrows and at the line from the base of the nose to the corner of the lip. When used for lips or facial contouring, Restylane can add shape and volume to the area.
