The aging process inevitably leads to the appearance of wrinkles and folds in certain well-defined areas of the face.
Aesthetic medicine frequently uses botulinum toxin and injectable dermal fillers to counteract the effects of aging.
Botulinum toxin acts differently from fillers.
While injectable fillers help restore volume loss and reduce the appearance of age-related conditions, botulinum toxin injections relax specific muscles making certain facial lines such as the forehead lines disappear or soften.
Combined with complementary treatments such as upper or lower blepharoplasty, dermal fillers (Juvederm®, Belotero®, etc.), CO2 laser resurfacing or laser treatment for hyperpigmentation, botulinum toxin injections can significantly improve age-related conditions.
