Botox is a protein used to treat overactive and expressive muscles. In 2002, after formal and extensive clinical trials and research, Botox was approved by the FDA. When administered by a qualified expert, Botox is a safe and reliable method of smoothing facial lines.
Botox can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles expressive areas of the face, such as the forehead, crow’s feet, and mouth-to-chin lines. Botox relaxes the muscles in the treated area, causing them to contract less, and softening the apperance of lines.
Non-surgical dermal fillers are made of a sugar that naturally occurs in the body, called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). We produce less collagen, and lose facial volume as we age, and so replacing this with Halyuronic Acid is both safe and effective.
Most commonly, dermal fillers are used to treat the lips, cheeks, and nose-to-mouth lines. They can also add subtle volume to flat lips, define the cupid’s brow, or balance out the lower and upper lips to create a more symmetrical face. We can also add contour to your cheeks to create a more youthful appearance.
