Fillers, also called “facial fillers” or “dermal fillers,” are a treatment that is used to firm up, plump, and rejuvenate certain parts of your face. They are injected subdermally (below the skin) to add volume and fullness to your face.
Fillers can use a variety of different substances, such as hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, and polyalkylimide. All of the ingredients in fillers are compatible with the body, and will not cause any adverse reactions or effects.
Typically, fillers are used to plump up thinning lips, to fill in shallow or “sunken” areas of the face, to treat shadows and wrinkles under the eyelids, to help with the appearance of facial scars, and to soften wrinkles in the lower part of the face.
Botox/Xeomin is a medical treatment derived from the highly-toxic botulinum toxin, but it’s treated and processed to be completely harmless when administered by a medical professional. Botox/Xeomin works by paralyzing some of your facial muscles when it’s injected into your face.
When the toxin is injected into your face, certain receptors in these muscles shut down, relaxing the area. This can soften and reduce wrinkles caused by muscle movements. These are also known as “dynamic wrinkles” or “expression lines.”
The most common dynamic wrinkles that can be treated by Botox/Xeomin include crow’s feet, forehead lines, smile lines and “smoker’s lines.” Treatment results typically last between 3-6 months, depending on your case.
