Wrinkle injections are used to prevent muscles moving - the cause of the wrinkles while dermal and lip Fillers are used to replace lost collagen and plump up areas.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein. When botulinum toxin is injected into a specific muscle it blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles in the face. This means that the nerve ending cannot tell the muscle to move. This is not a permanent condition, however, but it will last for around 3 - 4 months. The new skin has a chance to grow without being repeatedly creased. Hence, it appears to be smoother on the surface because it has not been creased by constant muscle activity.
Filler is made of Hyaluronic acid as opposed to old-fashioned collagen made from animal fat. Hyaluronic Acid can be found naturally in the body and so adapts better for a more natural enhancement.
As we age our skin and Lips lose Hyaluronic acid – it starts to become dry and volume decreases and creates lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm®
can help replenish the Hyaluronic Acid within the skin. Juvéderm® filler also contains a local anaesthetic (Lidocaine), This helps to minimise any discomfort during and after treatment.
