Facial Shaping & Sculpting

Botox

 

Botox, in short, is basically a prescribed dermal medicine that improves the look and skin of the face, usually for wrinkles and frown lines, that lasts for a certain period of time, which is taken via muscle injection. Botox originated from Clostridium botulinum , that produces the protein that is the botulinum toxin. The duration of each injection may last up to several months, depending on the recipient of the patient, as it is the delicate process of halting the production of wrinkles with intentional paralysis of facial muscles, with near rapid results from days to weeks, depending on dosage and potency.

 

 

Dermal Fillers

 

If you want to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, hyaluronic acid may be a good choice as a dermal filler because of its compatibility with the human body.
 

In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing. In humans, it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells.

 

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers. If the term sounds familiar, it's because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain and provide extra cushioning. Brand names include Captique, Esthélis, Elevess, Hylaform, Juvéderm, Perlane, Prevelle, Puragen and Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is not derived from animal sources.

 

When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.

 

In the last few decades, various synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid have been developed and used to correct disorders in the fields of rheumatology, ophthalmology, and wound repair. More recently, synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid are being manufactured for use in face augmentation.


Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to improve the skin's contour and reduce depressions in the skin due to scars, injury or lines. You can see potentially dramatic improvements for:

  • Acne scars

  • Cheek depressions

  • Crow's feet at the corner of your eyes

  • Deep smile lines that run from the side of the nose to corners of the mouth (also known as nasolabial furrows)

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

  • Marionette lines at the corners of the mouth

  • Redefining lip border

  • Scars including burns, acne and those caused by wounds

  • Smoker's lines; vertical lines on the mouth

  • Some facial scars

  • Worry lines that run across your forehead
