A simple way to reduce the appear of wrinkles on the face is using Botox or Dysport. These treatments can be used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and addition wrinkles on other areas of the face. The main cause frown lines and crow’s feet is the repeated use of facial muscles over time. The contraction of these muscles cause the facial skin to fold and furrow, leading to the appearance of wrinkles as you age. Fortunately, simple treatments like Botox and Dysport can reverse these effects.
Botox and Dysport are prescription medications are injected directly into the skin and block nerve impulses to the injected muscle, reducing muscle activity. To target frown lines, the treatment will be injected near the targeted area on the forehead. For crow’s feet, the treatment will be injected around the outer frame of both eyes. This temporary reduction in muscle activity reduces the appearance of fine lines on the face. Results from treatment tend to last for up to four months in most patients.
Juvederm and Restylane dermal fillers are used to help reduce facial wrinkles, folds, and scars, and add a smoother fullness to lips. Products like these are a great way to improve the look of skin without an invasive or painful procedure. These filler products mimic hyaluronic acid, something the body naturally produces to keep body tissues appearing hydrated and youthful. Once they are injected, the fillers will add a subtle volume and fullness to the area.
Juvederm and Restylane have been used successfully in the dermatological community for several decades, and leave patients with a natural look. Most people do not experience pain when receiving the injections. They can provide patients with results that last for 18 months or more with very few side effects, aside from minimal bruising at the site of injection.
