Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands, and forearms. Over time, skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic. Ultimately, this causes wrinkles - either fine lines or deep furrows. In addition to sun exposure, premature aging of the skin is associated with smoking, heredity, and skin type (higher incidence among people with fair hair, blue eyes, and light skin).
Both products are similar to BOTOX® which is a different form of purified botulinum toxin A (onabotulinumtoxinA), and are produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin A (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a very successful medical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. People often dislike their central scowl lines (called glabellar lines), which are caused by muscles contracting when concentrating, squinting, or frowning. Dysport® or Xeomin® injections into these muscles weaken them and successfully reduce the prominence of lines and wrinkles. Dysport® or Xeimon® can also be used to lessen crows' feet, bunny lines, marionette lines, and smoker's lines.
Dermal fillers are used for facial augmentation for cosmetic purposes. It has become increasingly popular for the ‘normal’ everyday person to seek dermal fillers to fill in facial lines/wrinkles or to enhance a specific facial area such as the lips.
- Restylane ® - adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) and give you the lift you've been looking for.
- Restylane Silk ® - used for lip enhancement and to correct lines around the mouth. It is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to specially address lips and the fine vertical lines around them that can cause lipstick to feather, aging the appearance.
- Radiesse ® - a volumizing filler that provides an instant lift, and is especially good for replacing volume back into facial cheeks.
® - an injection used for sagging skin under the eyes and fine lines around the mouth area.
