Dermal fillers

You can use dermal fillers in many areas, not just under your eyes.

Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance your nose, lips, jaw, and other areas of your face like your chin, forehead, and even neck. You can look younger with dermal fillers, which are commonly used to give what is called a liquid facelift. When dermal fillers are used in the cheeks, they can be injected more medially, to fill in hollowness in the mid face, or more laterally, to create an artificially more prominent cheek bone. Juvederm family of fillers is one of the most popular and commonly used dermal fillers. It is made from crosslinked hyaluronic acid that resists degradation by intracellular enzymes. Juvederm Voluma is commonly used for the cheek area because it adheres strongly to the periosteal surface of the bone. You can explore everything about Juvederm fillers by checking out this resource. Sometimes, dermal fillers can be used on areas other than the face to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin, for example in the hands, elbows, and knees!


Botox is a minimally invasive injectable procedure that relaxes the muscles in which it’s injected. This results in a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines in that area because the muscle contractions (such as smiling, squinting, frowning, and raising the eyebrows) that usually would lead to the formation of wrinkles, are restricted. Botox can be used to prevent muscle contractions from occurring in the area. To slim down their jawlines, many people opt for Botox injections in a masseter. The muscles relax and shrink over time, similar to the effect that weight lifting can have on someone. When the muscles are contracted and strong, the muscle looks bigger, while a relaxed, weakened muscle is smaller. There are a few other neurotoxins on the market that work the same way that Botox does, that simply have different chemical compositions. These neurotoxins include Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuvau, and are also commonly offered at different medical spas. While some people have preferences, keep in mind that all of these different neurotoxins are very much alike.

However, most people do end up getting more than one treatment for the best results. After the initial first three treatments, it is recommended that you continue with yearly follow ups or a treatment every six months.
