Today’s options for achieving a facial rejuvenation to reduce common signs of aging are plentiful, from topical cream treatments to surgical and everything in between. How do you know what option is going to be best for you? It depends on a number of factors such as the extent of the rejuvenation needed in addition to personal preference and professional recommendation. For those with less significant signs of aging where there may be lines, creases and wrinkles, but not sagging, excess skin, a dermal filler or botox may be the right choice. Dermal Fillers and Botox are both treatments that are injected, the difference is that Botox targets the muscles of the face that are making repetitive movements which are in turn causing those lines to form and Dermal Fillers target areas of the face that have lost valuable mass and are creating lines and creases. The dermal filler “fills” in this lost mass to create a smoother, healthier, more youthful appearance.
There are several different kinds of dermal fillers and each has its own strengths. Juvederm is one of the dermal fillers used to help both men and women achieve a more youthful appearance and it may also be used to enhance thin lips.
