The cosmetic effect of Botulinum toxin A on wrinkles has been studied since 1990. In 2002, the FDA announced regulatory approval of the toxin to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows. Subsequently cosmetic use of botulinum toxin type A has become widespread with many celebrities viewing it as less intrusive or artificial than plastic surgery.
Botulinum toxin is an excellent non-surgical treatment which causes relaxation of the muscles and as a result it helps smooth out lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful appearance.
The most popular dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our skin which helps maintain hydration and volume. These dermal fillers are preferred by clients for several reasons including their safety profile, being a natural product, and being relatively long lasting but yet not permanent. They are also quick and simple to administer.
