Botox & Fillers Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
Muscles in your face control your facial expressions. Each time you smile, laugh, or frown, it causes lines or creases to form in your skin.
As you age, your skin changes. Collagen and moisture production declines, and sun exposure does even more damage. You also lose subcutaneous fat in your face, and your skin begins to stretch. Over time, these changes cause lines in your face that grow deeper and more pronounced.
At Tri-Valley Medical Center, the skilled team offers aesthetic treatments like Botox® injections and dermal fillers to reverse the signs of aging and restore your youthful appearance.
How can Botox help wrinkles?
Botox treatments reduce wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles. This medical formula derived from a naturally occurring bacteria temporarily disrupts communication between your nerve cells and muscles to preventing flexing and contracting.
By delivering a precise amount of Botox into specific facial expressions, your provider can create a naturally relaxed appearance that addresses:
- Crow’s feet around your eyes
- Worry lines on your forehead
- Lines between your eyebrows
- Laugh lines around your mouth
Botox treatments take a matter of minutes and provide remarkable results within a few days. This temporary solution can last up to four months, though regular Botox treatments can provide longer-lasting results.
What are dermal fillers?
Tri-Valley Medical Center offers dermal fillers to restore lost volume and create fullness in your face to reduce the signs of aging. Dermal fillers can treat a variety of aesthetic issues, including:
- Plumping thin lips
- Reducing wrinkles and facial lines
- Improving recessed scars
- Enhancing shallow contours in your face
- Restoring lost volume in your cheeks
- Filling out hollows or depressions under your eyes
- Creating more supple skin
Several types of dermal fillers are available, each made with different substances, including hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in your body. These treatments usually take less than 30 minutes and provide instant results.
