Recent decades have led to extraordinary advancements in cosmetic treatments as technology makes it possible to achieve things that have never been possible before. With this advancing technology comes a rapid growth of ever-changing terminology that can be difficult for experts, let alone layman, to keep up with. Among these advancements are a series of non-invasive treatments that can accomplish amazing things without ever having to go under the knife. If you’re looking for a way to tackle a few pesky imperfections and want to know what options are available, read on!
Botox: A Reliable Standby That Just Keeps Getting Better
The administration of Botox has been a common treatment for a number of decades, and the ways in which it can be used just keep growing. The botulism toxin found in the bacteria of the same name has powerful paralytic effects that can create incredible cosmetic change when applied in specific areas by a professional. Outside of the cosmetic sphere it’s even shown itself to be effective as a treatment for sufferers of chronic migraines.
When used as a cosmetic aid Botox is perfect for treating minor issues like fine wrinkles caused by muscle movement. These wrinkles, known as expression lines or dynamic wrinkles, occur when these muscles are used in certain ways. The application of Botox selectively prevents these muscles from moving and thereby eliminates the wrinkles themselves. Crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, lines on the upper face, and eyebrows can all be tackled with the application of Botox.
Dermal Fillers Can Tackle Problem Wrinkles
When wrinkles exist that are not caused by movement, but by the aging and other natural processes, Botox isn’t going to be appropriate. Dermal fillers are used to provide filler to areas that have lost volume or the appearance of fullness, and restores that appearance without surgery. Dermal fillers are made using calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid, polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, and other substances that help to enhance the bodies appearance safely. In spite of the complex and perhaps worrying sound of these words, they are all substances that the body produces naturally, which is why they’re used in these products.
If you have shallow areas in your appearance that could benefit from the plumping action of dermal fillers, it’s time to give a professional a call. These substances can produce dramatic results that can last for periods of time ranging from months to years.
Both of these solutions are temporary in nature, and astoundingly good when used appropriately on the problems they’re suitable for solving.
