Botox injections are one of the most popular treatments in the world. It is famous because of its efficiency and relatively affordable cost. Facial expressions, such as smiling, frowning or laughing, require contraction of the facial muscles, which bends the skin.
Over time, these wrinkles can remain in place while the face is at rest, which considerably ages the face. Botox paralyzes these muscles in a controlled way so that facial expression is always possible, but the muscles can no longer produce wrinkles. Botox not only fades lines but also helps prevent their appearance.
Replaces lost volume
Firm skin and round, smooth cheeks are signs of youth due to the high collagen content of young skin. One of the harmful effects of natural aging is the decline in collagen levels in the skin, which gradually loses its volume and firmness. Collagen loss can contribute to skin sagging, wrinkling, and tiredness of the face.
Facial volume restoration can be done in two ways: one is through fat transfer while the other is with hyaluronic acid filler injections. These methods can be used to fill the nasolabial folds, fill in the ‘hollowed’ edges of the eyes, and enhance the cheekbones. To learn more about this option, follow Dr. Zacharia.
Eliminate excess skin
When facial skin loses much of its firmness and relaxes, surgery is often the best treatment option. Rejuvenating the face with surgery involves removing excess skin to tighten and smooth the face. Although this type of intervention requires some healing time, the result is permanent, unlike the results offered by injectables.
Loose skin should not always be removed to rejuvenate the appearance of the face. Many patients achieve the desired results with interventions that only enhance and reposition sagging skin. Ideally, the goal of the procedure is to rejuvenate the patient’s face while maintaining its naturalness.
“Surfacing” treatments of the skin
There is a multitude of procedures designed to beautify the complexion of the skin without surgery, among them, are peeling, microdermabrasion and laser treatments that can fade acne scars, brown spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging. To benefit from it, you have to contact the surgeon of your choice.
