Botox and dermal filler are popular cosmetic procedures for facial rejuvenation. Non-invasive injectional procedures are commonly used to eliminate the signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and soft-tissue volume loss. Botulinim toxin palayzes muscles to diminishes wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injected to reduce wrinles, raise depressed areas, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
Botox is a prescription medicine produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is injected into muscles and used for cosmetic reasons. In large amounts, this toxin can cause botulism, which you probably associate with food poisoning. Despite the fact that one of the most serious complications of botulism is paralysis, scientists have discovered a way to use it to human advantage. Small, diluted amounts can be directly injected into specific muscles causing controlled weakening of the muscles.
Target Areas of BOTOX
Wrinkles around eyes, on forehead and neck
Treatment using BOTOX
For wrinkle treatment, BOTOX is injected into the muscles around frown lines in the forehead, lips, around the nose, or sides of the chin. The injected BOTOX paralyzes the muscles that form fine lines and wrinkles. For hyperhidrosis treatment, many small injections of a slightly diluted BOTOX solution are made into the area to be treated. The effect of Botox treatment lasts for 6 months.
Botox weaken the masseter muscle giving a softer angle at the jaw and a less square jaw. Patients generally notice softening of the masseter muscle at one week and softening of the jawline at around 6-8 weeks. Some researchers have noticed "permanent changes" to the jaw line in 2-3 treatments. To keep the best result, it is recommended to avoid chewing hard foods.
Botox injections are used in the calf to add shape and to slim calves. Botox is injected into the muscle using numerous small punctures. The procedure usually does not require anesthetic.
As aging, skin loses collagen and hyaluronic acid which makes wrinkles on the skin. Fillers are popular products used to treat folds and creases on the face caused by loss of volume and hollowing in the skin due to the aging process, effects of gravity and repetitive facial muscle activity. ,/p>
Target Areas of Dermal Filler
Deep wrinkles, Tear bag, Thin lips, Loss of volume on cheeks, forehead, Short chin
Treatment using Dermal Filler
Cosmetic fillers have added new dimensions to the field of cosmetic dermatology, allowing new forms of facial rejuvenation and wrinkle treatment without surgery. Injectable skin and wrinkle fillers are used to increase tissue volume (as with lip augmentation), reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s overall contour. The exact type of filler chosen will depend on the site of treatment and the degree of correction required. Fillers can be used any where there is a defect on the skins surface. It is largely used on the face, especially for filling out lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, nose and forehead. The contours of your face can also be improved by treating the nasolabial folds (between your nose and mouth) and the marionette lines (lines from the corners of your mouth going down to the chin, giving you a sad looking expression). Fillers can also be used to augment the lips and give greater volume and a fuller, more sexy appearance. This procedure also enhances the definition of your lips and helps in the reduction of lipstick bleed by filling your vertical lip lines.
