Anti Wrinkle Treatments vs Dermal Fillers
There are two types of facial wrinkles we all suffer from: static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are those wrinkles caused by aging that are still there even when you are not making a facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear during facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles are commonly found on the forehead or those dreaded wrinkles/worry lines, between the eye brows (glabellas/frown lines), and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Anti wrikle treatment procedures diminish and soften dynamic wrinkles by blocking nerve messages to the facial muscle. When injected directly into the muscle, the Anti wrinkle injection prevents the muscle from contracting, which means the wrinkle cannot form.
Anti wrinkle treatments are not as effective on static wrinkles and would be better treated with dermal fillers. There are many types of fillers and once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, they can lift and add volume to the areas being treated, erasing signs of static wrinkles, deep folds in the face as well as lip enhancements and re-shaping of facial contours . In a very natural way, the product will restore the sensuous curves of your lips and the smooth curves to your face. Through a simple injection, minor imperfections and signs of ageing are softened easily. Most dermal fillers typically last six to nine months, depending upon skin type, health condition, and other varying factors. Sometimes more or less is needed, depending upon skin type, area treated, volume injected into the specific area, and the technique used for the procedure.
It is very important to know that this procedure cannot improve wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage to the skin since these are unrelated to facial muscle contractions. Anti wrinkle injections will not improve sagging skin or regenerate new skin cells to maintain a youthful appearance.
