Skin goes through a lot over someone’s life span. It is affected by sunshine, natural gravity and even the positions they sleep in. People live in their skin, and they live in it hard. After a while it is a little difficult to avoid the lines of life on their faces. Many people look to rejuvenate their face using facial aesthetics in Camden.
Botox and dermal fillers are the 2 main types of facial aesthetics in Camden. Many people feel more comfortable visiting dental clinics, such as Ace Dental, to have their treatments done as dentists have a thorough knowledge of the facial anatomy.
Why choose Botox?
Botox is a powder made from the botulinum toxin type A, and it is mixed in a saline to dilute it. The botulinum toxin is then injected into the skin, where it gradually relaxes the facial muscles by blocking the nerves, thus creating a smooth appearance. The injection takes 5-10 minutes, and your results can be seen over 4-7 days. Botox can be used in the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead lines and lines around the mouth known as smoker’s lines, and the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows. Though the Botox injection is very effective, it is not permanent, and the procedure should be repeated every 3 months for the effects to stay consistent.
Why choose dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are different from Botox injections. Whereas Botox relaxes the muscles, dermal fillers fill and plump up hollows, lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid gels, which the skin naturally loses through the ageing process. As people lose their natural hyaluronic acid, their skin becomes more papery and wrinkled. The filler replaces their hyaluronic acid. The injections take a few minutes, and they typically require a local anesthetic to relieve any discomfort. Unlike Botox, the effects are visible immediately. Fillers last a little longer than Botox as well, around 6-12 months depending on where the injection is done on the face. Dermal fillers can be used for lip enhancements, contouring the face, and non-surgical nose jobs.
In Camden, facial aesthetics have become a very popular way to bring back a youthful appearance to those who don’t feel a day over 30.
