Dermal fillers / Botox

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and

fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat.

The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile

lines and crow's feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches

a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial

skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.


What dermal fillers can do

  • Plump thin lips

  • Enhance shallow contours

  • Soften facial creases and wrinkles

  • Improve the appearance of recessed scars

  • Reconstruct contour deformities in the face

  • Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids

Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

Botox or botulinum toxin is a popular nonsurgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes. Several other areas have been treated such as thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines and gummy smiles.

Botulinum toxin is a purified substance that's derived from bacteria. Injections of botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected. Without a signal, the muscle is not able contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles or appearance. Commonly known types of botulinum toxin type A injections include Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.

Botulinum toxin can be used to

  • Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines and bunny lines

  • Diminish neck bands

  • Improve the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin

  • Lift the corners of the mouth

  • Soften a square jaw line

  • Correct a gummy smile

The FDA has approved the use of Botox for the frown lines and crow's feet, while Dysport and Xeomin are approved for frown lines only. All other uses are considered "off label."
