When visible signs of aging start to show up around your face, it can have a big impact on the way you feel about your appearance. Wrinkles, fine lines, and the loss of facial volume can make you look older than you are or older than you feel. While surgical options like a facelift or brow lift can rejuvenate the appearance of your face, some people may not be comfortable with the idea of getting surgery.
If you want to restore the youthful appearance of your face without having to deal with surgery, non-surgical facial rejuvenation using Botox and dermal fillers may be your perfect solution. Botox and dermal fillers are safe and effective injectable treatments that can treat issues like crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, and more.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable drug that is renowned for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles around the face. Botox is one of the best options for treating facial wrinkles because it targets the cause of the wrinkles, the facial muscles.
Making facial expressions or doing something like squinting involves contracting your facial muscles. When you make these expressions in the mirror, you can see the skin above these muscles wrinkle and fold. Over the years, these wrinkles become deeper and harsher and can even remain visible when you relax your facial muscles as the muscles become stiff and tight over time.
When you inject Botox into the facial muscles, it prevents them from contracting and temporarily paralyzes them which helps them to relax. This will reduce the appearance of issues like crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles while also helping to prevent these issues from becoming worse.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an amazing option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation because they are able to restore facial volume that has been lost over time. The loss of facial volume can create issues like wrinkles and folds and other issues like sagging cheeks or sunken eyes.
Dermal fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid that are able to provide a number of benefits. When injected into the areas of the face being treated, the dermal fillers instantly add volume which enhances facial contours and reduces the appearance of folds and sagging. Hyaluronic acid is able to help the skin retain moisture which will keep the skin plump to help maintain your results.
