Since 2002, Botox has been administered in more than 11 million cosmetic procedures.
Botox is approved to treat the vertical frown lines between your eyebrows, known as glabellar lines. It’s also often used on crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead lines. Some people use Botox for a “jaw reduction”, injecting the muscles around the jaw, slim the appearance of the face.
When Botox is administered to the muscles around wrinkles and lines, they relax and the appearance of wrinkles and lines is smoothed out.
With respect to dermal fillers, they can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs and they don’t require down time at all. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last between 4 months and one year depending on the treated area.
Dermal fillers can also be used to fix a variety of concerns related to facial ageing, including:
Adding volume and smoothing out the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (called nasolabial folds or laugh lines).
Plumping thin lips and smoothing out vertical lines around the edges of the lips.
Augmenting cheeks to enhance their shape, restoring youthful fullness.
Filling out depressions (hollows) under the eye area.
Making indented scars from acne or chicken pox more even with surrounding skin.
Increasing volume to fill out gauntness in the lower cheek.
