If you are planning on attending Holiday parties this year but feel somewhat self-conscious about the way aging has impacted your appearance, maybe it’s time to call Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata to discuss nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Dr. Fata offers a number of anti-aging treatments that can be used alone or in combination to target your areas of concern and restore a smooth, attractive, and more vibrant appearance in next to no time at all.
Nonsurgical options that are ideal for a quick holiday refresh include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Injectable filers
Some of these treatments soften and add volume to the face to fill creases and wrinkles and produce a fuller and more contoured appearance. Others, like Dysport and BOTOX®, relax facial muscles, enabling the skin above to smooth.
All of these options are ideal for fast wrinkle correction and can be used even days before a holiday event to produce a more youthful and appealing look that can help restore confidence and allow you to feel more comfortable in your skin.
Our Injectable Fillers
Dr. Fata offers three different injectable fillers:
- Juvéderm® - a hyaluronic acid filler, Juvéderm can produce results within just a few days and continue to produce a soft and smooth appearance for up to 12 months
- Restylane® - Restylane is also a hyaluronic acid filler. Results may take up to two weeks to be realized, but they can last for up to one year
- Radiesse® - Radiesse is a collagen filler that can produce smooth skin within one week. Results from this filler may last for up to 15 months
Each dermal filler offered by Dr. Fata is intended to treat specific areas of the face. During your initial consultation, he can help you determine which one is best for your needs.
BOTOX® is not a facial filler. Instead, BOTOX® and Dysport work to relax muscles underneath the skin, enabling the surface to smooth and producing a more refreshed appearance. Some people see results from BOTOX® within 72 hours, but one week is typical for complete correction of fine lines and deep wrinkles. A single treatment of BOTOX® can produce results for up to half a year.
In October of 2017, BOTOX® was approved for the treatment of forehead wrinkles and creases. This means that BOTOX® can now be used to:
- Eliminate wrinkling on the forehead
- Elevate drooping eyebrows
- Smooth frown lines in between the eyebrows
- Smooth crow’s feet
BOTOX® works best in areas where little tissue and fat are present. The cheeks, nasolabial folds, and jawline will often require the addition of volume – a task better suited to dermal fillers. Depending on your areas of concern and ultimate desires, Dr. Fata may recommend combining BOTOX® and dermal fillers to help ensure the most pleasing results.
