Wrinkle treatment options are abundant today. While there are numerous over-the-counter products available, Botox and dermal fillers have become extremely popular among people for their effectiveness and long-lasting results. They will smooth wrinkles, skin folds and fine lines that can result as we get older. At A1 Dental Care, we provide both Botox and Dermal Filler treatments that give you a fresher, younger-looking complexion. These procedures are minimally invasive and offer quick results.
Botulinum toxin or Botox is a muscle relaxer obtained from bacteria to treat dynamic wrinkles that occur around the eyes, mouth and in between your eyebrows. Apart from treating wrinkles and fine lines, Botox can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis.
How Does The Botox Treatment Work?
Botox is injected in a very small concentration into the muscles, which will improve the look of frown lines between the eyebrows. It can also be injected into the area around the sides of the eyes to treat crow’s feet lines. The duration of results differs between individuals but usually ranges between three and six months.
Dermal fillers are not only used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face but can also be used to plump up the cheeks and lips. Sometimes, they are used to reduce the appearance of scars and plump up other areas of the body such as breasts. While dermal fillers are injectable, they are available in different forms such as temporary gel solution, collagen, hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate beads.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
As we age, the natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (youthful component) in the skin lessens, resulting in the development of wrinkles and fine lines. When dermal fillers are injected, they add subtle volume by lifting wrinkles and make a difference to your appearance. You will see the results once the treatment is completed and it will last for around 18 to 24 months.
