There are several types of dermal fillers and each is used for different purposes. In our second post on our series about Botox and dermal fillers, we are going to look at hyaluronic acid based fillers.
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found naturally in your body. These dermal fillers are injected into the skin in order to smooth out lines, to fill in creases, or to add volume giving you a softer, more youthful look. Results are instant and can last anywhere from 6 months to 1 year.
These types of fillers are extremely versatile. They can be used to create volume in thin lips, minimize the appearance of fine lines and even deeper wrinkles around the lips and mouth, add volume to cheeks, help correct under eye hollows, and more. In general, help create a more refreshed and youthful you!
While Botox relaxes over active muscles, dermal fillers soften lines and folds at rest and can add volume to areas that are get depleted as we age. Although they provide different results, Botox and dermal fillers can be used alone or in conjunction with each other to enhance your natural beauty.
