Keep reading to find out more about the amazing benefits of fillers and botox and how you can benefit from them.
What Is Botox?
Botox (Botulinum Toxin A) is used in the treatment of wrinkles, fine lines, and other types of dynamic wrinkles on the skin caused by muscular contractions. Some of the most common ones are frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, worry lines, etc.
Botox is a biocompatible chemical agent. When injected into the skin, its molecules get attached to the nerve endings and keep them from transmitting sensory signals to the nearby nerve cells. This keeps muscles from contracting and allows them to relax.
After the treatment, the wrinkles and fine lines start to gradually fade away, leaving behind uniform-toned and plump skin. The procedure can be completed in a very short time and doesn’t require anesthesia.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are used in the treatment of static wrinkles and signs of aging, such as fine lines and thinning skin. As opposed to dynamic wrinkles, static wrinkles develop as you age because the skin loses its volume.
Fillers are made from hyaluronic acid - a chemical agent that is naturally produced by the skin to keep itself moist and hydrated. When hyaluronic acid production is reduced due to aging, fillers can help replenish the skin’s volume.
Some of the most common applications of dermal fillers are:
- Eliminating fine lines
- Plumping the lips
- Treating droopy or baggy eyes
- Reducing the appearance of scars
- Increasing the volume of certain facial features
Botox and filler treatments can be completed in just a few minutes, and their effects last for months to years. At Rio Rancho Family Dental Care, we put patients first and can ensure pain-free and long-lasting treatments.
