A simple way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face is by using neuro-modulators. These treatments can be used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and additional wrinkles on other areas of the face. The main cause of frown lines and crow’s feet is the repeated use of facial muscles over time. The contraction of these muscles causes the facial skin to fold and furrow, leading to the appearance of wrinkles as you age. Fortunately, treatments with neuro-modulators can help improve and reverse these effects.
Neuro-modulators 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.
Dermal fillers are used to help reduce facial wrinkles, folds, and scars, and add a smoother fullness to lips. They also help to lift and tighten the appearance of the face. Products like these are a great way to improve your look without an invasive or painful procedure. Injectable fillers 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.
Hyaluronic-based fillers have been used successfully in the dermatological community for several decades, and leave patients with a natural look. They can provide patients with subtle, long-lasting, results to enhance their appearance.
