Botox and fillers are being applauded in the world of cosmetics for revitalizing aging skin. Botox and dermal fillers can be miraculous tools for patients who begin to see fine delicate lines and wrinkles moving stealthily into their smiles and other parts of the face. An attractive smile can considerably improve your image and self-confidence. That is why so many people decide on Botox and dermal fillers.
When the skin is younger, it has more elastic tissue, which acts as a framework for the skin, making it smoother. However, as we age, this elasticity is lost, and as a result, our skin starts to become loose and less adept at protecting itself from damage. This leads to visible lines on the face that doesn’t go away by themselves. Botox and dermal fillers help the skin to achieve the effect of returning to a more youthful state.
What are Botox and Derma Fillers?
Botox is an FDA-sanctioned purified protein, which is used to inject directly into selected muscles. This substance will temporarily block the nerve signals that cause muscle movements. As a result of the blockage, the muscles in the targeted area will relax, getting rid of the wrinkles and fine lines present there. It will take about 3-5 days to reflect the full effects of Botox and will remain effective for 3-6 months. It only takes a couple of minutes to give the injections, and the facial muscles, which were not treated, can contract, allowing for the return of everyday expression.
Botox is a solution that is injected directly into the patient’s muscles. It is essentially a drug that is prepared from the botulinum toxin. If ingested orally, it can be deadly. However, when injected into the body in a planned manner, it can be quite effective and safe for removing fine lines and wrinkles. Botox being a delicate substance, should be ideally injected into your face by a trained dentist.
Dermal fillers help to get rid of fine lines and provide volume and fullness to the face that has been lost due to the aging process. One may start noticing those fine lines and sunken look of the face as they step into their middle age, which is a part of normal aging. However, it is still possible to retain your youth and vibrancy with dermal fillers.
The facial skin begins to lose its collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA) as you age. Basically, these two substances are responsible for enhancing the structure and volume of your face. The skin will start to sag and wrinkle when you lose the collagen and hyaluronic acid. The derma fillers are smooth, injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, and they help re-establish the fullness to your face, making you look more youthful.
