BOTOX® Still #1 for Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

When it comes to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, BOTOX® injections are still number one overall and has continued to grow in popularity simply because it is a quick procedure, is highly predictable, has few side effects, and has a high satisfaction rate.  BOTOX® works at the motor nerve-muscular junction to weaken specific muscles on the face to soften and prevent the formation of unwanted lines and wrinkles.

There are now several competitors to BOTOX® that work in a similar fashion, which is ultimately good for the consumer because it will help control the price. Consumers have to be cautious when shopping for these treatments, because anyone with an M.D. can obtain the products and he or she may not have the proper training to administer them.

Research has shown that the largest rise in popularity of all elective cosmetic procedures over the last year is the use of soft tissue fillers.

Collagen, Restylane®, and Juvéderm® have been around for a while now, but advances in this area have now produced a wider range of products that can be used to replace lost volume in the face while giving a more natural, longer lasting result.  New products like Belatero can be used to treat fine lines directly under the skin, and Voluma, Radiesse®, and Artefil are terrific at filling volume depletion that comes with aging.

It’s important to remember that these procedures are medical treatments and should only be administered by someone with the proper credentials, plenty of experience, an understanding of facial anatomy, and an artful eye. At MAE Plastic Surgery and Transcend MedSpa we are able to offer both surgical and nonsurgical facial treatments to achieve the desired result. It is rare when one type of treatment can rejuvenate all of the age related changes to the face that often occur simultaneously.
