Facial Fillers and Lip Enhancement
While cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift or brow lift provide permanent results, some people don’t want to deal with the downtime and invasiveness. They opt instead to combat the signs of aging and enhance their lips with injectables. Injectables take different approaches — some prevent contractions in the muscles that cause wrinkles, others simply fill wrinkles from beneath or trigger the production of new collagen.
What’s the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers?
This comes down to the two types of wrinkles, dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by muscle contractions from oft-repeated behaviors such as frowning or squinting. Crow’s feet and the 11s are dynamic wrinkles. Botox is a neuromodulator that is injected into the muscles responsible for those wrinkles. Botox stops the muscle from contracting for up to four months, and without the contraction below there is no wrinkle above.
Dermal fillers are used to treat the other type of wrinkle — static wrinkles. These wrinkles show themselves at all times. Frown lines, marionette lines, lip lines. These are all static wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as Juvedermand Restylane are injected beneath the wrinkle and basically “fill” it, pushing the skin upward. The above-mentioned fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that binds with water molecules to plump the skin.
