One of the effective ways to eliminate wrinkles and other skin problems is Botox. By Botox, practitioners actually disable facial muscles and prevent their movement. As a result, the face looks younger and sleeker. Botox can be used to treat wrinkles in the forehead, near the eyes and the areas where muscle movements are not necessary in order to prevent further wrinkles. Botox injections typically last for 4 to 6 months, and then re-injected after this period, as muscle movement returns.
Also, in some cases, when Botox is not effective collagen or fillers are used. Tissue fillers are the best treatment for wrinkles under the eyelids. These fillers may be used alone or in combination with other topical skin treatments such as laser treatments or other methods. Three types of gel are used as lip, cheek and laugh lines fillers: permanent, temporary and semi-permanent gels. Permanent gels are made of polyacrylic, and because of its absence in the body between the cellular tissues, it may eventually stimulate the immune system of the body. As a result, it becomes displaced decomposed. In this case, complications such as cheek drooping and gel accumulation in one place might happen.
Temporary gels are made of hyaluronic acid. These type of gel does not have the side effects of permanent gels. The most important point about this gel is that it lasts longer compared to other fillers containing collagen and fat.
Semi-permanent gels are used as great fillers in some areas, and it’s the only gel that can be used on temporary gels. As a result, it causes more filling of the skin. For deep wrinkles, this gel is well applied and lasts longer compared to temporary gels.
It is advisable not to massage the injection site after treatment with fillers. Avoid sun exposure and cold weather for up to two weeks after injection and use sunscreen regularly.
Finally, please note that Botox cannot be done for everyone. For this reason, it is advisable to consult with a qualified medical practitioner before being injected, and it should be done in reliable clinics. Furthermore, be sure of the quality of Botox.
