As our Skin Ages it gradually loses its major constituents: Collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles and hyaluronic Acid helps to trap water and volume and shape to our skin. The loss of these constituents produces changes in our skin and together with other factors like genetics, sun exposure, alcohol and smoking increases the likelihood of our skin developing lines and wrinkles.
Botox can be used to replace the loss of some of these elements in the skin. Botox are injected just below the skin and are being used more and more to help reverse the changes associated with aging and provide a more youthful look. Botox can be used to soften and contour lines, folds and wrinkles. Botox also mimic the hydrating and lifting effect of your skins natural hyaluronic acid which keeps the skin hydrated and elastic. This effect of the Botox in the skin helps to fill and smooth away facial lines, other skin contour deficiencies and helps replace lost volume.
The areas most commonly treated with Botox to provide a more youthful look;
• The nose to mouth lines (nasolabial fold)
• Lines around the mouth (perioral lines and oral commissure)
• Natural lip enhancement and definition of the border
