FACIAL AESTHETICS @ MerryLee Dental
Botox, an injectable medicine is used to treat “active” facial lines, meaning those that have only recently formed. A qualified professional will inject the cosmetic into facial areas that are associated with the formation of wrinkles.
For example, the muscles you use to frown may be responsible for lines around the mouth, so a professional can use Botox to artistically alter facial expressions.
This won’t result in a loss of the ability to show emotions on the face – the intention is to make subtle changes that will stop lines from forming while promoting a natural appearance.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are used to treat “firmly established wrinkles,” reports ASAPS. There are many variations of soft tissue fillers available, so ask your board-certified surgeon for a recommendation. In addition to treating deep wrinkles, these cosmetics can alter the appearance of soft tissue – for example, they may be injected into the lips to make one’s pout appear fuller.
