Summer is the Best Time for Injectables

Summer is the Best Time for InjectablesMany people may not know this, but the summer months are actually the ideal time to rejuvenate the face with injectable treatments, as little to no recovery time is needed. With summer now quickly coming to an end, we wanted to share some of our favorite treatment options.

Injectable treatments are ideal facial rejuvenation therapies for the social but busy summer season. Non-surgical procedures come with little downtime, making injectables a great options.

Advances in non-surgical facial rejuvenation offer many alternatives for those seeking a quick, yet profound improvement to the face. Injectable dermal fillers plump up the skin to disguise wrinkles, and Botox injections treat wrinkles by temporarily weakening the muscles that causes them. Some injectables offer results immediately, while others develop over a short period of time.

With summer now rapidly coming to an end, we wanted to share the best summer skin treatments before this fabulous season is over. The following are treatments with little or no recovery time to interfere with summer activities:

Juvederm

This popular treatment, made of hyaluronic acid, yields immediate results and adds volume to the skin. The natural substance is produced by the human body that binds water in the cells, and comes with minimal discomfort when performed by a skilled facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Azizzadeh.

Restylane

This dermal filler restores fullness in areas of moderate to severe wrinkles. Restylane is composed of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, which completely breaks down in the body.

Radiesse

This treatment works beneath the surface of the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen, which is the substance that gives volume to the face. While you will see immediate results, Radiesse also offers the long-term benefit of increased collagen production over time.

Botox

Botox injections improve the appearance of wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions by relaxing the affected muscles over time. Although the positive changes are not immediate, the effects of Botox treatment are apparent within three to five days, and continue to improve over a period of weeks.

Because an injectable treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, it is the perfect way to renew the skin before a late summer getaway. Side effects are generally minimal, consisting primarily of temporary redness, bruising, and/or swelling. While all injectable treatments are considered temporary, the effects can be seen for as long as 6 to 12 months, depending on the product. A summertime treatment can often last until the winter holiday season, at which time it can be repeated.
