Improves the appearance of fine lines, scars and wrinkles Patients in their 20-60’s are often self-conscious about the lines on their face. Perhaps not significant enough for a laser or chemical treatment or if the individual does not want to undergo a recovery period, there are various methods available to plump up the undesirable lines. Skin fillers are one of the most common procedures performed in doctor offices. The material injected ranges form one’s own fat to synthetic products such as hyaluronic acid. The concentration of the synthetic fillers used can be customized depending on the location where it is to be injected. Most common locations for placement of such fillers are under acne or traumatic scars, the lines next to the nose – the naso-labial folds or at the corners of the mouth. Even the back of one’s hands can have fillers injected to smoothen the irregularities and loose skin.
Neurotoxins work by temporarily blocking one’s natural and often reflex ability to stimulate the muscles from working. There are many versions of neurotoxins Many people naturally stimulate their forehead and muscles around the eyes when they are surprised and even during normal conversation. Over time, this can lead to unwanted visible skin wrinkles at rest. This medicine was initially used for patients that had an involuntary muscle twitching of their eyelids. It is now used for aesthetic needs. By injecting this medicine into the muscles that cause the unwanted skin wrinkles, these muscles are temporarily blocked from working, which reduces the visible skin wrinkles. The length of time that this medicine works depends upon many factors.
