BOTOX is an injectable form of botulinum toxin that is used to correct dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of repeated muscle contraction due to facial expressions like smiling, squinting, or frowning. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks chemical signals from the nerves to the facial muscles, relaxing the muscles and preventing them from contracting. By temporarily relaxing the facial muscles, BOTOX smooths dynamic facial wrinkles and creates a younger looking appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Juvederm and Restylane are popular hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal fillers that can be used to instantly restore mild to severe facial lines, wrinkles, and folds and improve facial volume and contour. These injectable fillers can be used to fill in pitted acne scars, treat nasolabial folds, marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, and to fill in hollows under the eyes. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers can also be used to perform nonsurgical nose jobs, cheek augmentation, and to add subtle enhancement to the lips.
Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers
This injectable dermal filler is made from a synthetic form of poly-L-lactic acid and work to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Sculptra is a well-known poly-L-lactic acid dermal filler that can be used to improve the appearance of severe nasolabial folds, fill in laugh lines, and to add subtle enhancement to thinning lips. The results of poly-L-lactic acid injectable dermal fillers appear gradually over time as the newly stimulated collagen develops.
