Botox is a wonderful option for men and women seeking a rejuvenated facial esthetic. This cosmetic medication has been used for twenty-plus years in the treatment of lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. A neuromodulator made of a purified protein, Botox blocks transmissions that cause treated muscles to contract. As such, this drug is most often used in the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. To treat the lips, patients typically consider the benefits of dermal fillers.
Botox and dermal fillers can and often are used in conjunction. Due to their differences, they can make the perfect pair. While the role of Botox is to relax persistently-contracted muscles to reduce lines and wrinkles, fillers replace lost volume beneath the skin to plump creases. The plumping action of fillers makes them ideal for the treatment of the lips. At the same time, Botox can also have a positive impact on the appearance of the lips. Patients of NJ plastic surgeon Carlos Burnett can quickly achieve their desired result with personal attention for their concerns.
The Key To Positive Improvements
Especially when correcting cosmetic concerns around the mouth, the use of the appropriate product is only one aspect to consider. It is also important to use the various cosmetic injectables appropriately. Whether it is dermal filler alone or the combination of dermal fillers and Botox, the application of each product in the correct manner is what achieves the best results.
Botox, in particular, can be used to reduce the downward pull on the corners of the mouth, allowing the patient to look and feel more uplifted. Low doses of this drug can also be injected into specific areas around the lips to maximize the results from dermal fillers in the treatment of lipstick lines.
Historically, cosmetic concerns associated with aging have been addressed with plastic surgery procedures. Today, doctors are helping their patients achieve a rejuvenated appearance using injectables to produce a "liquid" lift effect. Botox and dermal fillers, when expertly applied, can achieve gorgeous, natural looking results that last for many months.
