Neuromodulators and dermal fillers are by far among the most commonly injected products in North America
The article, “Exploring the Prejuvenation Trend: Why Women Are Getting Neurotoxin Earlier Than Ever”, was written by 29-year-old Andrea Karr, Canadian Beauty editor for Fashion Magazine. She shares her experience of getting Botox injections for the first time with some personal insight on her reasons and the opinions of cosmetic medical professionals on what they think about the prejuvenation trend. Although she felt like she didn’t need injections for wrinkles at her age, she did want to begin this process as a preventative measure in maintaining her youthfulness.
Neuromodulators are used to temporarily weaken the muscles and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Botulinum Toxin injections
Andrea underwent under-eye rejuvenation with the use of injectable fillers to the eye area. She shares her experience of getting the procedure along with professional, experienced doctors’ opinions on the latest trends that they have been observing in their practices.
Neuromodulators are commonly injected into the following areas:
- Between the brows – to reduce frown lines
- Forehead – to smooth and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead
- Above and around the eyebrows – to lift the brows
- Crow’s-feet – to reduce and smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Nose – to reduce nose squinting
- Chin – to reduce the dimpling that occurs when smiling
- Masseter jaw muscles – to reduce the appearance of bulkiness in the jaw
Neurotoxin injections take about 1 week to actively reduce the wrinkle formations.
Aside from being used to freeze muscles, dermal injections also come in the form of fillers to help create volume in the area of treatment
Dermal Fillers for the Under-Eye Area
In her article, Karr says that she received Teosyal Redensity ll injectable to her under-eye area.
Dr. Torgerson’s preferred brand of choice for injectable in the under-eye area is Teosyal Redensity ll formula. Redensity ll contains a specialized formula that rejuvenates the under-eye area while filling out the hollowness. Patients can expect to see final results after 2 weeks, when the product has settled underneath the skin. Dermal fillers like Redensity ll are a great long term temporary solution for people who want to rejuvenate their under eye area without any surgery or a significant downtime period. Redensity ll not only provides a “filling” effect; it provides the delicate under eye area with essential vitamins and nutrients that provide restorative attributes to the dermal structures. The prolonged use of Redensity ll can prevent further formation of wrinkles in the periorbital skin around the eyes
Dermal filler injectables for the under-eye area require about 10 to 14 days for swelling and bruising to subside.
Dr. Torgerson has noticed a growing trend in younger patients who want to take action to reverse the early signs of aging. This phenomenon continues to grow with increasingly younger people wanting to remain young and youthful. On the contrary, popular social media stars influence how the younger girls and boys view facial augmentation. They want to achieve certain exaggerated features that they may find attractive on their favourite Instagram stars. Dermal filler is not only serving a purpose for anti-aging, but also as a status symbol. Dr. Torgerson coined “rich face” as a term for this new trend where people want injectable filler not for anti-aging but to create a unique “look” that they are trying to achieve.
When considering dermal fillers or Neuromodulator, it is important to explore the right type of cosmetic physician to perform your procedure. Dr. Torgerson is one of the leading facial cosmetic surgeons in Toronto specializing in surgical and non-surgical concerns for the face, head, and neck.
