As you get older, managing your health may start to include medical aesthetic services to address the common physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, thinning lips, and a generally tired appearance in the face. Botox and dermal fillers are among the most common and popular aesthetic treatments because they are non-surgical and easy to receive in a short visit to the doctor’s office. They also have reliable, predictable results, so you can rest assured that your final look will be natural and beautiful after you receive either treatment.
Botox Cosmetic is designed to address the wrinkles that form in the brow and forehead as a result of frowning. The muscles under the skin cause the skin to fold, and as the skin begins to lose its elasticity, deep lines will appear due to this folding. Botox relaxes the underlying muscles, smoothing the skin and creating a more youthful appearance in the upper face.
Fat below the surface of the skin may diminish with time, leaving more lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The lips, jawline, and cheekbones can also lose fullness with the aging process. Dermal fillers do not target muscles but instead restore this lost volume. They usually contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Dermal fillers are made in a wide range of densities to address everything from emerging fine lines to deep-set wrinkles and sagging skin.
