Achieving reductions in fine lines and wrinkles with injectables in Vancouver

Fine lines and wrinkles are a common issue for patients in the Vancouver area who feel that they are not aging as gracefully as they would like. It is impossible to stop the signs of aging but it can be slowed and improved. This is when patients ask their doctor about ways of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the need for invasive surgery. Injectables may be the best option.

At Thrive, Dr. Adam Maddox believes that wrinkle reduction can dramatically improve the texture of the skin and help patients look younger than they really are. Dermal fillers and neuromodulators are the two most popular non-invasive treatments available in his practice as anti-aging solutions.

Neuromodulators are wrinkle reducers that work by addressing the muscle contractions underneath the skin. They work best when injected into areas such as around the eyes to improve crow’s feet or in the forehead for forehead folds and glabellar lines (the “elevens” which appear between the eyebrows.) They are made from botulinum toxin type A, which relaxes muscles almost immediately for long-term results. Botox is a common neuromodulator used at Thrive and is completely safe and FDA approved for both medical and cosmetic use.

Dermal fillers are different. They work by adding instant volume into fine lines and wrinkles. They are made with hyaluronic acid, which attracts water and allows patients to enjoy dramatic results as soon as they leave the doctor’s office. Dr. Adam Maddox has a steady hand and understands how to inject these treatments for optimum results.

Dermal fillers and neuromodulators must both be reinjected over time to maintain the results. They can also be used together in the same treatment for a “liquid facelift.”

Patients are welcome to speak with Dr. Adam Maddox to determine if they are an appropriate candidate for these injections. Most patients are, and they are advised of the results they can expect. Patients should be realistic in understanding the goals they can achieve with injectables versus traditional surgical facelifts, which do provide long-term, more dramatic results. However, patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may benefit greatly from injectables.
