Botox and filler serve as a powerful tool for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging.
Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport are injected strategically into targeted muscles to produce a temporary relaxation for roughly 3-4 months. Neurotoxins are FDA approved to treat forehead, frown, and crow’s feet lines. These lines and wrinkles can appear over years of repetitive facial expressions, exposure to the sun, lifestyle, and genetics. By relaxing muscle activity, our skin can relax, lift, and soften. Therefore, minimizing the appearance of superficial lines and preventing them from worsening. Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel. Fillers can replace lost volume, fill folds, soften lines and replenish hydration.
A youthful face depends on having the right amount of facial fat in the right places, as well as healthy bone structure. With increasing age, changes take place in the facial fat pads and bone. When you combine fat loss and bone loss with exposure to the sun, lifestyle and genetics, signs of aging can be accelerated. Common signs of facial volume loss present as folds, heaviness, hollowing, and dehydration. Unlike Botox, which affects muscle activity to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines, dermal fillers are a gel that is injected beneath the skin’s surface to treat areas of concern. They are primarily used to reverse signs of aging, enhance facial features, and sculpt the face to restore youthful volume.
