Two of the most popular types of procedures to use for medical aesthetics are BOTOX® and dermal fillers. Both of these forms of medical aesthetics decrease the effects of aging by minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In fact, many people who receive Botox and dermal fillers say that they were able to visually remove the appearance of many of their facial lines and wrinkles completely.
Not only are Botox and dermal fillers effective at de-aging, but they’re also safe to use. In fact, a study done in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Dermatology found that both Botox and dermal fillers are very safe to use when performed by a board-certified dermatologist. This is evident by the fact that the side effects in this study occurred to less than 1% of the people who received Botox and dermal fillers.
Plus, the side effects that occurred to that less than 1% were minor. So, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands when receiving Botox or dermal fillers at Live Beyond Medical.
Although receiving medical aesthetic procedures like Botox or dermal fillers is safe, like with any type of procedure, they still involve some risks. Therefore, make sure you do your research and make yourself aware of these risks prior to receiving care.
It’s advised that pregnant or breastfeeding women don’t receive Botox or fillers. Also, if you suffer from a particular health condition or take any prescription medications, discuss with your physician whether or not it’s best for you to receive Botox or dermal fillers before going through with these procedures.
Cosmetic injectables for high-end medical aesthetics, such as Botox or dermal fillers, can work in a variety of different ways. They can also be used for a variety of different reasons. Botox, for example, works by reducing muscle activity in your skin. This, in turn, helps smooth out any lines or wrinkles that you may face.
Fillers, on the other hand, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by literally filling in areas in your skin where there is a depletion of mass with collagen. While these two forms of medical aesthetics operate in very different ways, the primary goal is the same. To de-age the skin by removing lines and wrinkles.
Botox, in particular, is a great medical aesthetic procedure to use when dealing with dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that develop on the skin due to muscular activity. Muscular activity occurs in the face when a person makes an expression.
Botox is effective at fighting dynamic wrinkles because it actively works to reduce muscle activity in the face. This tactic is effective because muscular activity is the root cause of the development of facial wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are often some of the hardest to get rid of because they develop continuously over time. Thus, dynamic wrinkles took years and years of active muscular activity to make. On top of that, a person never stops making facial expressions. Therefore, Botox must fight against continued muscle activity that will make the skin want to develop more dynamic wrinkles.
Due to how effective Botox is at reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, it’s arguably the most popular form of medical aesthetics. This is especially the case when it comes to medical aesthetics that reduce facial wrinkles.
Botox is also effective at treating some medical conditions. For example, some people use Botox to help treat neck spasms, otherwise known as cervical dystonia, or to help treat lazy eyes. Also, many individuals get Botox put in their armpits to reduce excessive sweating, or the condition of hyperhidrosis. Botox injections can even be used to help treat an overactive bladder or prevent migraines.
As we briefly mentioned earlier, derma fillers are a form of medical aesthetics that also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The difference is that dermal fillers do this by filling in spaces in the skin where there are lines and wrinkles with collagen.
Although dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, don’t affect muscle activity, it’s still another preventative measure that one can take to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This is because the collagen that dermal fillers fills the skin with stimulates more collagen growth in the skin. This, in turn, replaces the collagen that your skin loses as it ages.
The loss of collagen in the skin as a person ages is a major reason why muscle activity under aging skin is more prone to cause the development of lines and wrinkles. Thus, the development of more collagen in the skin proactively prevents lines and wrinkles from forming. Filling the skin with more collagen also visually plumps and lifts up the skin. This leads to a more youthful and glowing appearance.
