BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® is generally used for the upper part of the face, around the eyes and forehead, where it relaxes the muscles and inhibits contraction. The smoothing effect on wrinkles and fine lines leaves skin supple rather than stiff and lasts up to four months.
For those looking to control the signs of aging, hyaluronic acid dermal filler can be used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Injectable fillers are an alternative response to a need that used to only be treated with drastic plastic surgery. Small amounts of safe fluids are injected into various spots around the problem area — this process has little downtime, no scarring and can be completely reversed in most cases.
