Dermal Fillers & Botox
Botox and Dermal Fillers are non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, reshape and plump the skin to restore a smoother more youthful appearance.
Unlike Botox, which is injected into the muscle to relax the muscle under the wrinkle, Dermal Filler involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to diminish facial lines and restore maximum volume and fullness in various areas of the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose elasticity and subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles work closer to the skin surface, so the smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent and visible.
The facial skin also can stretch to varied degrees and in different places, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, stress, exercise, heredity and lifestyle.
What do dermal fillers do:
• Plump thin lips, or lips needing a fuller look
• Enhance shallow contours throughout the face
• Soften facial creases and wrinkles around the rose, mouth, cheeks and lips
• Improve the appearance of recessed scars
• Reconstruct any contour deformities in the face
• Decrease or remove the dark shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, and being a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
What is Botox?
Botox (botulinum toxin) is a popular nonsurgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes. Several other areas have been treated such as thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines and gummy smiles.
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance that’s derived from bacteria. Injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected. Without a neurological signal, the muscle is not able to contract. The end result is less facial wrinkles.
When administered correctly by a medical practitioner, Botox is an extremely safe and effective procedure and the side effects are generally only minor and may not occur at all. Occasionally some light bruising or redness might occur in the area of the injection but this should subside quickly.
Botulinum Toxin can be used to:
• Smooth crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines and bunny lines
• Diminish neck bands
• Improve the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin
• Lift the corners of the mouth
• Soften a square jaw line
• Correct a gummy smile
• Stop underarm sweating
• Reduce tension in the jaw muscle
• Assist in headaches and migraines
