What You Should Know About Botox Injections for Marionette Lines

What You Should Know About Botox Injections for Marionette Lines
July 26th 2018
What are marionette lines? Marionette lines are the vertical groves that appear on the corners of the mouth and extend towards the chin, often laterally circumscribing the chin. The oral commissure lines usually develop due to a combination of aging and excessive facial muscle movements. If left uncorrected, these facial creases can give an inaccurate perception of one’s age and emotional cues. How can Botox be used to treat marionette lines? While marionette lines are usually treated using injectable fillers, they can also be corrected temporarily using Botox (BTX) injections. Botox is a muscle relaxing injectable that contains highly purified botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin is extracted from Clostridium botulinum bacteria that is fermented with casein hydrolysate, glucose, and yeast extract. Once injected intramuscularly into the proposed area of treatment, the botulinum toxin will temporarily paralyze the implicated facial muscles, resulting in softened appearance ...

Dermal Fillers for Dark Circles Under Eyes

Dermal Fillers for Dark Circles Under Eyes
July 26th 2018
What are the best dermal fillers for treating dark circles under the eyes? Under-eye dark circles—sometimes referred to as periorbital hyperpigmentation or panda eyes—are the formation of dark discoloration around the eyes.

Loss of under-eye fat pads also exacerbates this problem as the underlying muscles and blood vessels prominently show through the thin skin. While eye creams and makeup products provide some form of remedy, patients are greatly encouraged to undergo dermal filler injections for instantaneous effects. Some great choices of injectable gels include Restylane Lyft, Belotero Balance, and Juvederm Ultra. All these implants are made of highly purified synthetic hyaluronic acid molecules that are manufactured via biofermentation. They are then processed using different patented manufacturing technologies to prod ...

What You Should Know About Dermal Fillers for Chin Augmentation
July 25th 2018
The chin—also known as the mental region—is the area under the lower lip, which includes the mandibular prominence. A well-proportioned chin and jawline contribute to the balance and attractiveness of a face for both male and female patients. How is the chin augmented using dermal fillers? Not everyone is born with naturally well-defined chin and jawline; some patients have less than desirable cosmetic problems in the mental region such as wrinkles, a shapeless jawline, and a lack of bone contour. These patients might require some help from the various types of aesthetic treatments available on the market. For instant results with very little downtime and lesser side effects, patients are encouraged to choose a procedure with dermal filler injections instead of chin implant surgery. This nonsurgical procedure can also be used a “trial run” for patients who are seriously considering surgically enhancing their chin. The chosen filler must be malleable enough so ...
