Turn Back the Clock With Injectables

Spring has sprung, clocks have moved forward and we have more daylight each day. Time may be moving forward, but minimally invasive procedures like injectables can help you turn back the clock on your appearance! There are a number of popular options that can have a huge impact on your appearance, and with little to no downtime.

Botox injections use a refined/purified protein to reduce the visibility of facial lines and wrinkles, particularly those on the forehead and around the eyes, for a rejuvenated look. By inducing temporary relaxation of the muscles associated with these lines and wrinkles, Botox effectively diminishes the appearance of glabellar lines (commonly referred to as ‘elevens’ between the eyebrows), forehead creases, and crow’s feet. Additionally, Botox can be applied to various other facial and neck regions, and your board-certified plastic surgeon can help determine placements.

Another option to revive your look is fillers. Juvederm is one example of these injectables, which can be used to treat various signs of aging, such as plumping thinning lips, filling in shallow areas on the face, decreasing the shadow or wrinkles under the eyes, and more. Some fillers lift and smooth out the folds and wrinkles in targeted areas by adding a subtle amount of volume, while Voluma acts as structural support to help lift the entire cheek and minimize the need for individual wrinkle treatment. There are many different types of fillers that can be used to treat multiple areas of the face, ears, and neck that last up to two years.

Combining the two (Botox and fillers) can provide significant results that delay or remove the need for surgery.

Who is doing your injections is just as important as what product is being injected. Dr. Poulter holds the Master Injector designation from Allergan and has over 30 years of filler and 20 years of Botox experience. As a surgeon injector, he can not only inject the areas of concern but has also operated on those muscles. This allows him to better understand the variations in muscle anatomy and take the time to evaluate the function this variation produces so your injections are individualized to your specific needs. He can also advise when injections may not be the best answer for your concerns.
