Regency Specialties offers non-surgical options to soften facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face with the latest techniques in cosmetic injectables. 

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables refer to any form of cosmetic treatment that is administered with a needle. These treatments are extemely popular due to their effectiveness and convenience, and can include wrinkle relaxers (such as Botox® and Dysport®), dermal fillers (such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®), or dermal filler stimulants (such as Sculptra®).

Wrinkle relaxers

Wrinkle relaxers such as Botox and Dysport are made using botulinum toxin type A. This is a neurotoxin that temporarily stops the muscles from moving.

When injected to areas where wrinkles form, it helps to improve or prevent lines and wrinkles from being visible. Wrinkle relaxers are mostly used to treat:

  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Migraines
  • Excessive sweating

Wrinkle relaxers:
Recovery 

Wrinkle relaxers don’t require any downtime; however, side effects may include bruising and swelling directly after treatment for a few days. 

Wrinkle relaxers:
What to expect

Results from wrinkle relaxer treatments take a little longer than those from dermal fillers. You’ll likely see noticeable effects within a week after your wrinkle relaxer treatment. Everyone experiences different result longevity, but the average amount of time that results last is 3 to 6 months.

Wrinkle relaxers:
Good candidates

The best candidates for Botox treatments are individuals who want to lessen or prevent wrinkles, and who are generally healthy, with no history of neuromuscular diseases (such as multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravis), and who are at least 18 years old.

Who should not
use wrinkle relaxers?

Those who have medical conditions such as damaged nerves or muscle complaints may not be good candidates for wrinkle relaxers; nor is it a good treatment for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Those with skin disorders or ptosis around the intended area for treatment may also not be good candidates.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers or facial fillers, are designed to “fill in” or smooth out wrinkles and lines. Dermal fillers are very often used to achieve a fuller, more volumized appearance such as the cheeks and lips.

Dermal fillers are a great option for lines and wrinkles that have not been created by facial muscle contraction, such as laughing, smiling, etc. These areas are typically around the cheeks, lips, and nose. 

Dermal fillers have the ability to make the face appear more youthful by creating a smoother, plumper look. Dermal fillers are mostly used to:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Volumize shallow contours
  • Soften lines, creases, and wrinkles 
  • Improve the appearance of scars

Dermal fillers: Recovery

Wrinkle relaxers don’t require any downtime; however, side effects may include slight bruising or swelling. This should subside within a day or two, and is easily camouflaged with makeup.

Dermal fillers: What to expect

A dermal filler treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. You will see the results nearly immediately, and while every dermal filler is different, results typically last between 6 and 18 months.

Dermal fillers: Good candidates

Dermal fillers are a great option for individuals who are seeking convenient skin rejuvenation treatment with no downtime, whether the desired outcome is reduced wrinkles or added volume.

Who should not use dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers may not be a good option for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or those who have a sinus infection.

The decision between wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers — or the choice to use both — will be determined during your consultation with us at Regency. Both work in different ways, and together we will figure out what will work best for your specific aesthetic goals.
