What Imperfections Can Botox and Fillers Correct?

Botox and fillers can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox works by relaxing the underlying facial muscles and is frequently used to treat the lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crows’ feet. Using dermal fillers help to fill in lines and folds on the face, they add volume and contouring to cheeks, lips, under eye areas and hands. Fillers can also be used to restore a youthful appearance thinning lips.

What Happens During the Procedures?

A Botox treatment typically involves several injections of the solution into the area to be treated. The doctor will use a small, thin needle and may use a topical anesthetic cream to decrease any sensation or discomfort. The treatment only takes a few minutes and you should see the effects of the muscle relaxation within just a few days

The process is similar for dermal fillers. The doctor will decide and mark where the fillers will most improve your facial appearance. Dermal fillers offer a nonsurgical approach to reclaiming your youthful appearance. Fillers help reduce and fill in lines and folds on the face. These products have the ability to add volume and shape to cheeks, lips, under eye areas, and hands.

Full lips are usually associated with health and youth. Lip aging usually occurs around age 30 and manifests itself as supravermilion rhytides (wrinkles above and below the vermilion borders) and a decrease in lip volume. This is due to thinning of the dermis and volume loss, as well as loss of the white roll definition.

Sophisticated and gentle techniques using fillers can produce outstanding results in restoring lip volume, making the “Cupid’s bow” more prominent and defined. When injected into the lips, dermal filler can restore a more natural, fuller look to the upper and lower lips.
