Fountain of youth in a vial: Injectables that bring the years back

Lore and legends tell the existence of a “Fountain of Youth,” a spring that supposedly brings the glow and vigor of time gone by.

Now, those seeking to restore their youthfulness could find hope in beauty creams, surgical procedures, and injectable formulations that produce dramatic results in little doses. And among the most popular available today include Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm.

Botox: Derived from botilinium toxin, Botox has been widely available to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as uncontrolled bladder and excessive sweating. But it is most popularly known for its cosmetic abilities: smoothing out visible furrows and erasing creases and wrinkles. Botox makes that possible by temporarily relaxing facial muscles and blocking nerve impulses that cause these unwanted lines to form. The result is a younger, invigorated skin without the need for surgery.

Dysport: Using of the same main ingredient that makes up Botox, Dysport emerges as a more effective option in diminishing moderate to severe wrinkles such as frown lines and crow’s feet, according to research. While there is no visible difference between Botox- and Dysport-injected patients when their faces are at rest, the Dysport distinction shows when patients smile, squint, frown, and laugh.

Juvederm: Hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the skin, is becoming increasingly popular for its restorative and hydrating properties. It comes in an injectable gel form and is marketed under brand names like Juvederm. Injections only take 15 minutes and immediately reveal a noticeably smoother, firmer skin. A brief period of swelling, itching, and a faint redness may occur, but patients recover as fast as 36 hours after the procedure.
