Dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic are very popular nowadays, and they are no longer “reserved” just for women and men who want to reduce their wrinkles. They can be used by anyone in need of facial correction. If you are feeling insecure about your features, then the right injectables can help you rejuvenate your facial appearance and regain your confidence. 

But what exactly are dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic, and how can you obtain full-face correction with them? And why should you go for multiple injections instead of just one? Let’s explore how Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics can help you achieve a naturally refreshed and beautiful facial aesthetic.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables aimed to plump your skin and smooth out your wrinkles by filling the otherwise recessed areas. Usually, dermal fillers include collagen, hyaluronic acid, or other filling substances that occur naturally in the body. Aside from offering an immediate effect, some fillers may also trigger your body’s own collagen production, making you look more youthful.

Dermal fillers are very popular because they can improve your facial features without you having to resort to invasive surgery. The recovery time is also very short, making it a good option for busy women and men who cannot hit the brakes easily on their day-to-day lives. You will leave the office with boosted confidence, as the results are usually apparent shortly after your treatment session.

Dermal fillers can be used on different areas of your face. Since each dermal filler has its own formula, you may need multiple injections to obtain that perfectly balanced effect. Additionally, since most fillers provide a natural filling effect, you won’t have to worry about looking “overfilled” or “overdone.”

Where Can You Get Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can be injected in various areas of the face, including:

  • The Under-Eye Area

You may have noticed that as time passes, the area underneath your eyes becomes hollow. This happens because the skin underneath your eyes is more sensitive and thinner and is the first one to be affected by the aging process. Dermal fillers can help fill in those hollow areas, correcting things such as crow’s feet, bags, and more. Most patients look more awake and refreshed a few hours after their appointment. 

  • Around the Mouth

As you get older, your body stops producing as much collagen as it once did. This can lead to several facial imperfections such as marionette lines, nasolabial folds, jowls, and more. Your skin may also begin to sag, making you look constantly tired and overall unapproachable. Dermal fillers can help you replenish that lost volume so that you can restore the balance in the lower area of your face. 

  • Cheeks

Cheeks represent the central point of your face. Whenever someone looks at you, they will likely see your eyes, followed immediately by the cheeks. The problem is that as you age, your cheeks may appear puffy or hollow, losing their youthful look. Dermal fillers can be used to fill that hollow, helping you regain your facial contour. 

  • Lips

Lately, dermal fillers have also become popular for the lips. As you pass the age of 30, your lips might start shrinking, causing a “dropping” effect on the lower area of your face. You may also have naturally thin lips and you’re looking to make them a bit fuller. Dermal fillers can help add more volume to your lips so that they look more natural, attractive, and well-balanced.

How BOTOX® Cosmetic Can Help

Unlike dermal fillers that add volume to your target area, BOTOX® Cosmetic smooths it out without the added volume. This is because BOTOX® Cosmetic uses botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes or relaxes the muscles, preventing them from contracting (an action that often leads to dynamic wrinkles).

By paralyzing these muscles, you will no longer be able to engage in needless facial movements. The effect will be temporary, but enough to smooth your wrinkles down. It also allows you to maintain your features if you do not want to add more volume.
