Botox and Fillers
One of the greatest recent advances in dermatology and plastic surgery has been the introduction of Botox and fillers. Botox is a naturally occurring neurotoxin that can be used to decrease the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles especially on the forehead and around the eyes.
Botox acts by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that cause the facial wrinkles that can give an angry or aged appearance. The results last about four months and this noninvasive procedure has very few complications. It is a simple clinic procedure that can usually be accomplished in less than 30 minutes.
By complimenting Botox treatment with fillers, which fills in the deeper wrinkles, your face has an instantaneously more smooth youthful appearance. Fillers are a category of injectible volumizing agents including Perlane, Restylane, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Juvederm. The majority of these agents are hyaluronic acid, collagen, or products that cause your body to form collagen in the treated areas. Similar to Botox, these results are usually temporary will last from months to years depending on the product.
Another option is using your own fat to fill wrinkles or concavities, the results with your own fat has more variability, but is considered a permanent solution as it does not dissipate after it has settled within a few months.
