Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments performed today for both men and women. Botox is administered via injection to reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases. There are a variety of lines and creases that occur as we age and there are different causes for these signs of aging. It is important to understand the underlying cause of these signs of aging to properly treat them. Botox works by temporarily ceasing repetitive muscle movements under the skin that is causing a line to develop in the skin. Dermal Fillers, which are also administered via injection, are performed to fill in an area that is showing signs of aging due to loss of volume.
Botox may be performed in combination with Dermal Fillers for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Botox may also be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift.
