There comes a time in life when you simply feel that you can no longer look in the mirror. You’ve watched your fine lines and wrinkles grow and it has come to the point where these lines are defining your facial features. You are looking older and would like to do something about it. When you’ve reached this critical point, it’s time to look at Botox and dermal fillers to decide which one would work best for you.
This is a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles and fine lines and it is non-surgical in nature. A purified protein is injected to reduce muscle activity on the face. This helps to minimize the look of wrinkles and fine lines as well as frown lines around the eyes, between the eyebrows and on the forehead.
As we start to age, wrinkles and lines start to form due to the muscle contractions that occur in our faces on a daily basis. When these muscles are relaxed, a youthful and smooth appearance shines through. This procedure causes minimal discomfort and there may be minimal bruising for some patients at the sites of the injections.
Restore your appearance and look young again with the help of dermal fillers. These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid that is injected beneath the skin to plump up and contour lips, creases, wrinkles, cheeks etc. When certain areas on your face start to look sunken or loose, the dermal fillers help to fill in the gaps.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is found naturally in the body. This is a safe procedure that is easy to perform. In most cases there is little discomfort during the procedure itself and only minor bruising, tenderness or swelling afterwards. The areas that can be treated include under the eyes, the chin, jawline, cheeks, lips and forehead. As well, if you’ve had acne scarring on the face, these fillers can help smooth out the skin.
