Botox and dermal fillers such as restylane are used by many cosmetic dentists in Birmingham for facial rejuvenation procedures to give a non-surgical face-lift. Botox is a great for the treatment of “Crow’s Feet” and forehead lines, whereas dermal fillers are frequently used to treat deep smile lines, smoker’s lines around the lips, cheek contour depressions, and facial scars. Dermal fillers can also be used to “plump up” the lips and add fullness to them.
Botox is a safe to use bacterial toxin which when injected into the facial muscles in minute quantities relaxes the muscles and effectively improves the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by the movement of these muscles. The procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes. Botox injections need to be repeated every few months by your Birmingham dentist as the botox is broken down by the body.
Dermal fillers such as restylane are based on a degradable hyaluronic acid in the form of a clear gel. This gel is injected into the skin to create volume, smooth out wrinkles and restore fullness to lips. Due to its degradable nature dermal fillers also need to be injected regularly.
