Our office utilizes the most advanced non-invasive treatments for facial revitalization to help you look and feel your best. The two most common procedures used to achieve this are muscle relaxants and fillers. A combined approach of both of these products provides optimal results.
The most commonly used muscle relaxant is botulinum toxin. This injectable product temporarily immobilizes the targeted muscles, effectively improving wrinkles formed from overuse of some muscle groups. While it improves lines, it does not add any volume to the face.
Collagen is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to healthy, young skin. As a part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
Fillers are materials that are placed into deeper lines and wrinkles to replace collagen in areas of volume loss. Filler agents typically are used for those wrinkles that are too deep to be treated with lasers. Most commonly filler agents are used for smile lines wrinkles, sagging cheekbones or to enhance the appearance of upper and lower lips. Acne, chicken pox and other depressed scars can also be improved.
