Dermal fillers have become highly popular as a means to help people look young and beautiful. These treatments aim to restore the skin to a youthful state and offer more natural-looking results than surgical face lifts. They can be used to raise scar depressions, reduce or eliminate wrinkles, replace soft-tissue volume loss, and enhance lips. The effect of dermal fillers typically lasts anywhere between six to twelve months.
Why Dermal Fillers are Needed
As we age, our skin gradually loses the following:
- Hyaluronic acid, which helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin,
- Elastin, which helps our skin to stay firm, and
- Collagen, which acts as the major support protein for our skin
Juvederm is a gel-based filler that can be injected into the skin using a very fine needle. It is comparable with hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, and can be used to reduce wrinkles, augment the lips,correct lines near the eyes, deep folds on the face, etc., to bring back a youthful and flawless look to the facial skin.
Botox is a temporary treatment which makes use of a special protein to block overactive nerve impulses, restricting muscle contractions and relaxing the muscles under the skin. This reduces wrinkles and fine lines and gives the skin a youthful and healthy appearance.Botox can also be used to provide comfort to patients receiving dental implants and to relieve symptoms of TMJ disorder as it reduces the amount of stress on the muscles.
