One of the most frustrating aspects of aging is that no matter how well you care for your body, it often seems impossible to combat time and genetics. Gravity and the natural aging process take a toll on our skin, even if we are in otherwise perfect physical condition. But what if you could look on the outside as good or better than you feel on the inside? Magna Family Dental Studio in Highlands Ranch is excited to help you fight back against aging with our new Botox® and filler treatments in Highlands Ranch!
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a protein made from a natural toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. This toxin acts as a natural paralyzing agent that, when used in small quantities, has several clinical and cosmetic uses.
What are the Effects of Botox®?
When injected into the skin, Botox® disrupts the nerve signals of the tiny muscles under the face, causing them to stop contracting. This small-scale muscle freeze makes your skin to tighten while reducing the presence of wrinkles and creases around the mouth, forehead, and chin.
Doctors have used Botox® to treat several neuromuscular conditions. The protein can help prevent muscle spasms, alleviate migraines, stop excessive sweating, and help reduce the symptoms of an overactive bladder.
What are Fillers?
Injectable dermal fillers are small quantities of a gel-like substance used (most commonly) in the tissues of the face. Like Botox®, this is an FDA-approved treatment that has visible effects in the short term, and the substance is naturally absorbed by your body over time.
What are the Effects of Dermal Fillers?
As you age, gravity and exposure to the elements cause the fatty deposits under your facial tissues to drift down and your skin to loosen, causing your volume to disappear. This gives your face a saggy and sunken appearance we associate with aging.
Dermal fillers serve to restore the volume to your skin by filling out the areas in which the change is most prevalent. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and augment the volume of the lips, giving you a more youthful appearance.
