Even though holiday celebrations may look different this year, there’s a good chance you’re busy planning the perfect gift, baking holiday treats, or cooking delicious meals for your loved ones. On top of all that, you may be anxious about looking your best for those virtual celebrations and photo shoots.
We have some good news. We can help you look years younger for the holidays with cosmetic injectables. It’s not too late! Dr. Leonardo A. Longoria and our team at Longoria OBGYN in El Paso, Texas, offer Botox® injections and the Juvéderm® line of fillers.
Cosmetic injectables can target your wrinkles
Did you know there are two types of wrinkles? Dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are what you get from making the same facial expressions for years. Your muscles stay in a semi-contracted state resulting in frown lines and crow’s feet.
In contrast, static wrinkles occur from sun damage and getting older. Over time, the amount of collagen and elastin diminish, leaving you with wrinkles.
Our cosmetic injectables can smooth out both kinds of wrinkles to help you look your best just in time for the holidays.
Botox is a neurotoxin. When used in small doses, it’s safe and effective at relaxing those semi-contracted muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. No one will ever know you had work done. They’ll just think you look well-rested.
Botox is great for:
- Frown lines on your forehead
- Creases between your eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around your eyes
It’s also sometimes used on fine lines around your mouth, called lipstick lines.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that contains a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. When injected into the areas you want to target, it’s safe and effective for filling in wrinkles and enhancing thin lips and sunken cheeks.
Juvéderm is also great for filling in smile lines and reducing the appearance of smoker’s lines around the mouth.
Look younger for the holidays
Even though the holiday season has already started, you still have time to look your best. You’ll see the full results of Botox in 1-2 weeks, though you should see an improvement within a day or two. Botox results are temporary, so, you may want to come in for a touch up in 4-6 months.
Juvéderm results are noticeable in about two weeks, so give yourself enough time before that big holiday party or family reunion.
With a little forethought, you’ll leave your family and friends wondering how you could look so good during such a stressful and chaotic year. The beauty is, they’ll never know unless you tell them, because the results with both of our cosmetic injectables look natural.
