Women who are considering injectable treatment at a Salt Lake medical spa may be surprised by how many treatments are now available to them. Within a very short period of time, injectable technology has improved, giving you an array of options when you visit your Salt Lake medical spa.

Each injectable on the market was designed to target a specific aging-related concern in the face. Take a few moments to review the injectable options available at Utah County and Salt Lake Medical Spas to see which is most likely to produce the results you desire.

BOTOX®

When women think of receiving injectables, Botox is probably the first to come to mind. Botox is injected to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe wrinkles, with results lasting several months. The Botox injection series is done in only ten minutes, but can shed years from your face.

If you have any of the following trouble areas, Botox may be right for you if you wish to target:

  • Severe frown lines
  • Moderate to severe crow’s feet from the corner of the eyes
  • Lines between the eyebrows

There is also evidence that Botox treatments may reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches in some people. Contact your doctor to see if Botox therapy for migraines is a good option for you.

RESTYLANE®

Restylane is effective on moderate to severe facial wrinkles with results lasting up to nine months. Made of hyaluronic acid, Restylane restores the volume and fullness to certain areas of the face.

Receiving Restylane treatments at your Utah County or Salt Lake City medical spa can help reduce the appearance of the following wrinkles:

  • Lines around the nose and mouth
  • Wrinkles from the corner of the mouth
  • Lines from the corners of the mouth to the jawline called “marionette lines”
  • Lines above the upper lip, or “smoker lines”

Salt Lake City medical spas also use Restylane to improve the appearance of thin lips. Restylane is the only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years age. Full, well-defined lips can leave Salt Lake City medical spa patients looking younger in hours.

JUVERDERM®

Juverderm is also based on hyaluronic acid, which is cross-linked, meaning the body will reabsorb the gel more slowly. Slowing the absorption process means longer lasting results. In fact, most Salt Lake City medical spa patients need only one Restylane treatment to achieve yearlong results.

Juverderm is used in the following facial area:

  • Moderate to severe smile lines
  • Vertical lip lines

Next month we will examine other injectable options including Belotero®, Dysport® and Juvederm Voluma XC®.
