Mixing Chemical Peels and Injectables to Get the Results You Want
- Posted on: Oct 24 2014
Every so often, we are constantly asked here at our practice about which facial rejuvenation treatments are ideal for their specific cosmetic goals and aesthetic needs. By and large, many patients would express how overwhelmed they are with the wide variety of facial rejuvenation treatments available.
Injectables and chemical peels are two of the most popular treatments not just here at the North Coast Laser but all across the country. The former is popular for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and creases while the latter is frequently preferred by those who want to get rid of acne scars and hyperpigmentation spots mainly brought about by constant sun exposure.
What if your facial aging concerns involve those that respond well to injectables and chemical peels? The good news is you can actually combine both!
What Injectables Can Do For You
Injectables for facial rejuvenation can be divided into two groups: the muscle relaxants (Botox and Dysport comes to mind ) and facial fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm. The muscle relaxants are ideal for wrinkles that are formed due to repeated muscle contractions such as crow’s feet (wrinkles in the outermost corners of the eyes), forehead lines, and the 11s (vertical lines in between the brows). On the other hand, as their name implies, facial fillers work well with issues that has to do with volume loss such as sunken cheeks, grooves underneath the eyes,nasolabial folds, and the appearance of jowls.
What Chemical Peels Can Do For You
If you’d like to improve overall skin tone, you might also want to try chemical peels. By and large, these treatments range from mild to moderate in strength and are specifically ideal for lightening pigmentation spots and improving the appearance of scarring.
