Facial fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections.
Botox is a cosmetic procedure that helps you smooth wrinkles and look younger after a few injections. The effect can be seen in just 10 minutes and it can last up to 4 months.
A specialist determines which muscles of the face you use most and make tiny injections into them and this improves moderate and some severe frown lines.
Where do you apply botox?
Treating crow’s feet
These wrinkles are most common and thanks to Botox that works like neuromodulator prevents the muscles responsible for these wrinkles from contracting. Since the muscles cannot move the area around your eyes remains almost completely smooth.
Reducing the jawline
The muscle that is responsible for chewing also can make your jaw look too big and square-shaped. It is called masseter muscle and with the help of botox, you can minimize the square-like look.
Smoothing the forehead
When we are surprised and upset we raise our brows or furrow them in a frown and get wrinkles on our forehead. And after years they become more and more visible. With the help of botox, you relax the muscles and make your forehead smooth again.
