Wrinkle Removal Without Surgery
Aesthetic treatments without surgery allow to slow down the aging process of the skin.
These treatments can complement facial rejuvenation surgeries.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) and Facial Fillers
Wrinkle removal can be done without surgery with botulinum toxin and facial fillers like hyaluronic acid. There are two types of wrinkles:
– Dynamic wrinkles: they appear with gestures, due to muscular hyperactivity (for example, forehead wrinkles). These wrinkles can be diminished by “paralyzing” the involved muscles.
The botulinum toxin (Botox®) blocks muscle contraction for a period of 4 to 6 months, reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
– Static wrinkles: they are visible with the face at rest (for example, the wrinkles of the nasogenian sulcus).
These wrinkles can be attenuated by filler infiltration, such as hyaluronic acid. This material is gradually reabsorbed over the months.
