Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment. Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic.
Botulinum toxin reduces fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles.
Fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to the sun and years of muscle movement ( squinting, chewing, smiling ) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.
Fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face.
