The perfect anti-aging treatment will not be the same for everyone. The person’s age, skin condition, skin damage, and desired results must all be factored in to find the best treatment to turn back time and give them radiant, smooth, refreshed skin. The goal for many of these treatments is to stimulate collagen production in the skin. This can be done using different solutions but the majority will help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and make skin firmer in the process.

The Difference between Injectable Anti-Aging Treatments

If you visit a medical spa or even your doctor and talk about your concerns regarding the age your face looks, you will often be given a list of injectables they offer to get rid of those signs of aging. Botox is popular due to how well, fast, and long it can last for. Although it is not a permanent solution, a qualified doctor can make your face look naturally younger by contracting muscles to stop them from forming lines around the mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead.

On the other hand, Sculptra Aesthetic is an example of an anti-aging treatment that does not offer immediate results but provides subtle, long-lasting results over time. It helps replace lost collagen to correct facial wrinkles and folds that occur naturally when collagen is lost.

Juvederm is an anti-age treatment for patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Its formula consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in the body. When injected, it replaces the hyaluronic acid your body has lost naturally from age to smooth the wrinkles.

Using More than One Anti-Aging Treatment

Your anti-aging regimen may need more than one type of Injectable in order to get rid of the unwanted facial lines and wrinkles. However, it is important to know that if you are using two different formulas that they will not cause unwanted side effects. Your doctor can help you come up with a treatment customized to your needs that will make you look young and refreshed while staying safe
