Filler are used to improve facial wrinkles. They are a material related to a substance naturally found in the skin. They are injected just beneath the skin to mechanically raise the skin and improve the wrinkle. Ice and restriction of strenuous activity that day reduce bruising and swelling.
The fillers most commonly used are Juvederm, Voluma, and Volbella. Juvederm is versatile and used for most areas. Voluma enhances and lifts cheeks. Volbella subtly augments the lips and improves perioral wrinkles.
Botox is a safe and quick solution to improve the frown lines between your eyes, forehead, and crow’s feet. It is a purified protein that has been used therapeutically for over 15 years. With just a few tiny injections the severity of these lines diminishes with results lasting up to 4-6 months! The entire procedure takes about ten minutes and there is minimal discomfort with resumption of normal activities immediately. Botox is the most popular physician administered cosmetic procedure in the United States.
