Botox and Dermal Filler Procedures

Botox injections are quickly becoming the fad “fountain of youth” treatment for many. Botox, or botulinum toxin, is purified bacteria that is injected, using tiny needles right under the skin. The toxin blocks muscle nerve signals and muscles are unable to contract or wrinkle. Botox injections can significantly diminish wrinkles, smooth crow’s feet, frown lines and other unwanted wrinkles. Botox injections can take years off of the appearance of the face.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are natural substances injected into the face to plump up areas on the face that may be sagging, wrinkled or have lost fullness due to age and exposure to the environment. Subcutaneous fat begins to diminish as we age leaving skin and facial bone structure – as the skin stretches as well, the appearance is expounded. Small amounts of dermal fillers that are injected can make thin lips appear to be plump and full, cheeks round and young, and neck areas strong and supple.
