Injectables fall into two general categories, fillers and relaxers. Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Perlane are fillers. These work to used to gently plump those areas of the face that lose volume as we age. A rested, more youthful look can often be obtained by gently filling out the lips, the “apple” of the cheek, and the folds between the nose and the corner of the mouth. These areas thin as age and gravity work to change the shape of the face.
Botox Cosmetic and now the new Dysport work to relax the muscles that make wrinkles as we frown. Getting rid of that scowl between the brows brightens your appearance and can also prevent future wrinkles in that area.
Remember, aging is not just about loose and sagging skin. A natural improvement in appearance may require more than just pulling things tight.
