As the body ages, the skin loses its elasticity, volume and structural support which can lead to the creation of wrinkles, fine lines and folds. In addition to this, lips, which are one of the most noticeable features of the face, also begin to lose volume and become thinner and less well defined over time.
Reversing the effects of time is a relatively simple process and can be performed in a non-invasive way with the aid of Botox and dermal fillers in Camden. Facial aesthetics are all about restoring facial structures for an attractive and confident appearance. Facial aesthetics in Camden are available in many dental practices, including Ace Dental. Dentists are ideally qualified to deliver these treatments, because they have a deep knowledge of the face and its muscles and are trained to take care of any complications.
Botox is a purified protein that functions as a long-lasting muscle relaxer. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother, creating a more natural and relaxed appearance. The effects of Botox can be slightly different for each patient, but they usually last 3 — 4 months. The process should be repeated after that, but some patients find that return visits become less urgent as their muscles adjust to limited movement and fewer lines and wrinkles.
Botox can also be used as a treatment for patients who have high lip lines and as a result suffer from a gummy smile. For these patients, Botox can help relax the upper lip, allowing it to hide the upper gums and provide a more natural looking smile.
Unlike Botox, dermal fillers actually fill in and plump up fine lines, wrinkles and grooves to make the face look plumper and more youthful. Dermal fillers usually consist of synthetic hyaluronic acid and are ideal for smile lines, lip enhancement as well as facial contouring (especially in the area of the cheek and chin). They add volume because they replace the natural hyaluronic acid that the body has lost over the years.
In most cases, patients only need one treatment of the dermal filler to enjoy visible results, and their application can last for up to a year.
