As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens and cells lose their ability to produce youthful looking skin. This can cause unwanted wrinkles and fine lines producing a tired, worn out appearance. Many believe Botox is the only way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, however dermal fillers may be a better treatment option.
Botox is a highly used injectable that softens wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment uses a natural toxin made of proteins to relax and paralyze the facial muscles causing wrinkles. Botox treats dynamic wrinkles that are visible when you smile, squint or frown, and stops new wrinkles from forming.
Dermal fillers are another treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers tend to treat wrinkles that are static, which are deeper and more established lines that are present when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers plump and lift the skin by replacing missing collagen. There are different types of dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse. Juvederm is the only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler that is FDA approved to be safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Belotero is another HA filler that gives instant volume. Radiesse is also FDA approved to provide long-lasting results.
