Botox and Fillers - Would You Like to Look Younger?
The reasons the lines and wrinkles appear on the face are among others: uncontrolled and unwanted facial mimics, tanning, smoking, or skin atrophy associated with "normal" aging. A wrinkled face looks unattractive and appears worried, fatigued, angry or older. One of the means in overcoming these untidy visual effects is with Botox injections.
Cosmetic Botox works by paralyzing chosen muscles that cause diminishing or easing of muscular facial tension and smoothing of the skin. Botox may also be used for prevention of developing facial wrinkles in the future.
Botox is a natural substance used in medicine for years. Cosmetic Botox is mainly used on the forehead, in between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Botox effects are visible after a few days and last about 4-6 months.
Human Collagen Fillers - Would You Like to Look Younger?
Sometimes, no matter how youthful you feel, your face tells a different story. Sunlight, natural aging and lifestyle factors can diminish the collagen and hyaluronic acid layer that supports the skin. Where those substances diminish, unwelcome lines and wrinkles may appear.
The human collagen developed in the laboratory is similar to the collagen normally found in the skin. The same pertains to hyaluronic acid derivatives. These substances can smooth away telltale lines and wrinkles or add definition to the lip border. The results are visible immediately and usually last 8-12 months. Collagen and hyaluronic acid derivatives are gradually absorbed so that after this period of time the face returns to its initial contours. This means that these substances need to be replenished in order to maintain the desired effect.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid derivatives can:
- fill in the worry lines
- smooth the crow's feet and fine lines around the eyes
- minimize or eliminate the lines between your nose and mouth
- add definition to your lip border and fill in vertical lip lines or even lift sagging corners of the mouth
