Wrinkles / Fine Line
What’s the difference between fine lines and wrinkles?
Fine lines are the early signs of wrinkle formation. They usually appear at the most expressive areas of your face, such as around the eyes, mouth and forehead. They don’t necessarily signify aging. Fine lines can be created due to lack of moisture in the skin or facial expressions.
A wrinkle is deeper and much more noticeable and permanent than a fine line. As aging occurs, so does loss of elasticity in the skin, which causes a thinning and folding of the skin. This is when fine lines turn into wrinkles.
Types of wrinkles
Some wrinkles are caused by repeated contraction of muscles in the face. Over time, creases formed can lead to a “persistent frown” and a more aged appearance. Precise use of Botox is the best approach to preventing and eliminating these lines. Treated facial muscles become relaxed for an average of three to four months. It may be used in addition to, or in place of other cosmetic procedures. The use of Botox for wrinkles is not covered by insurance and must be paid for by the patient at the time of treatment.
The most commonly injected areas include the forehead, glabella (between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet (next to the eyes). The injections are slightly uncomfortable and may cause a temporary headache. Occasionally, there may be some swelling and bruising. Patients may resume normal activities immediately and no recuperation is needed. The full effect of Botox may take two weeks to be noted.
Facial Fillers / Injections
Facial fillers are products such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite that rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through facial injections. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement ( squinting, chewing, smiling ) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.
Facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. A qualified dental or medical professional can help you determine which facial injections and what injectable fillers treatments are right for you. Facial fillers will volumize creases and folds in the face in areas that have lost fat and collagen as we age. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body. The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic marionette lines, a deeper mentalis fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are then injected extraorally right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face. Dermal fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips around the mouth, lip augmentation, and completingcosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth
