Botox & Dermal Fillers In Newark, DE
As you age, you cannot help but notice the difference in your skin. When you are younger, your skin is plump and wrinkle-free. As you age, it will slowly show signs of wrinkles and lines. This is because your ability to produce natural collagen and the elasticity of your skin lessens with age. Also, the different facial expressions you make over the years, like frowning and smiling, cause them. As such, the possible solution to this condition is the use of Botox and Dermal Fillers.
If you want to enhance your appearance and still look young despite your age, Botox or dermal fillers may be a solution. They are both non-surgical, safe, and effective. However, these cosmetic treatments have some differences.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX®, also called a neurotoxin or neuromodulator, is one of the most common treatments for the effective reduction of fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, glabella (the 11’s between your eyebrows), and crow’s feet. Botox is administered through injections using an ultra-fine needle. These injections contain very small amounts of botulinum toxin. When this neurotoxin comes in contact with your nerves, it will paralyze muscles in the treatment area. In turn, reduced muscle movement will lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Results typically last three to six months, and you can safely undergo repeat treatments.
What are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, loss of collagen that supports our skin produces noticeable deflation and lack of volume causing facial lines, wrinkles and loose skin. With the advancement of dermal fillers and techniques, these safe, non-invasive options improve these conditions and immediately restore the fullness of youth. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance our bodies contain. Although the HA in these fillers are artificial, they are identical and compatible with your body’s HA. Dermal fillers are used to increase facial volume, contour facial features, and smooth facial lines and wrinkles by replenishing the natural collagen support layer beneath your skin.
How long does it take?
Most of the procedures are performed in less than an hour with virtually no down time yielding instant results.
