Which facial treatment is best for you?

Which facial treatment is best for you? | Mt Juliet TN

You’ve heard buzzwords thrown around the cosmetic industry for years, but there always seems to be a new “best thing” or “miracle solution” on the market. How do you differentiate between emerging treatments and decide which route to take for your cosmetic needs? Start by understanding which treatment options are available, and the reasons these treatments work. Here is a basic breakdown of some of the most popular cosmetic treatments.


Botox

Botox is a protein commonly injected into the face to prevent wrinkles and signs of aging. The protein blocks communication between the injected muscles and the nervous system, limiting the motion of the affected muscle. Without this connection between the injection site and the nervous system, the muscle lays dormant, softening wrinkles caused by facial expressions.


Juvederm

Juvederm is a type of filler that is used to add volume back into areas of the face while also temporarily restoring volume loss. The filler, injected at various depths within the face, works to restore that youthful fullness that naturally fades with age. Similar to Botox, Juvederm can also soften wrinkles. Think of Juvederm injections like putting more helium in a balloon. The filler lifts the skin and makes it more taught so that the skin doesn’t continue to wrinkle.


Kybella

Kybella, the opposite of Juvederm, is a treatment designed to reduce the look of fullness by destroying fat cells. More specifically, Kybella is injected into the submental region below the chin in order to create a more defined-looking profile view. By targeting fat cells, this treatment reduces submental fullness, making patients appear younger and fitter.


Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment designed to expedite visible results of other treatments. Another injectable treatment, PRP, places platelets from the patient’s blood into a localized area. The treatment, known for its restorative properties, commonly improves skin pigmentation, scarring, wrinkles, and other age-related facial tissue imperfections.
