Injectables Q & A

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

Wrinkles and fine lines can form when the muscles beneath them move repeatedly. These repetitive muscle contractions cause the skin to fold over and over again, leading to expression lines. These wrinkles commonly form on the:

  • Forehead
  • Between the brows
  • Around the eyes
  • On the corners of your lips

Wrinkles also form when the supportive structures beneath the skin begin to diminish. Without the proper support, your skin loosens and sags, and wrinkles begin to appear.

How do neuromodulation injections work?

These injections consist of botulinum toxin. When injected into your muscle, this toxin temporarily paralyzes it, ceasing its movement, and preventing the muscles from creating wrinkles.This helps your skin smooth and your wrinkles and fine lines begin to fade.

Dr. Li may recommend neuromodulation injections if she believes repetitive muscle movements on your face contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. She can use these injections to treat wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes, between your brows, and on your forehead.

Neuromodulation injections are minimally invasive and require no downtime. You may notice some results immediately, with optimal results within 48 hours. Results can last up to four months.

What issues do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers smooth your skin by restoring volume and fullness to your cheeks and face. Because your face naturally loses fat under the skin’s surface, the skin becomes looser and fine lines and wrinkles become more prevalent.

Dr. Li may recommend dermal fillers to:

  • Increase facial volume
  • Plump lips
  • Fill shallow contours
  • Smooth pitted scars
  • Decrease lower lid shadows

Dermal filler injections begin to take effect immediately, and you will typically notice results right away. Depending on the type of filler Dr. Li administers, it may contain collagen-stimulating enhancements that continue to improve the support structures after the injections have been administered.

When the wrinkles and volume loss associated with aging have you wishing for younger-looking skin, call Southwest Laser Skin Care. You can also book an appointment with Dr. Li online.
