Are you hearing that a lot lately? If you are and yet you are not tired, it may be that time is catching up with your face and parts of it are starting to hollow out and sag and wrinkle, which can make people look more tired than they really are.
If you take a good look in the mirror and can see places where wrinkles are getting deeper, then it may be time to think about investing in facial aesthetics. In Camden, at Ace Dental, we offer both Botox and dermal fillers – two different ways to brighten up your face.
Wrinkles in the top third of your face
Botox is brilliant for smoothing away wrinkles in the top part of your face. These are the wrinkles that have been produced by using different muscles too much.
If you are a frowner, we can smooth away the wrinkles between your brows. If you are a worrier, then the ones across your forehead may need help. Or, heaven forbid, you like smiling and laughing, then you’ve probably got a few wrinkles around the edges of your eyes that we can iron out.
All of these are held in place by muscles in habitual contraction but injecting them with Botox temporarily paralyses the muscles. It only takes a few minutes to do, and, over the next few days, the wrinkle smooths away, leaving you looking fresher and more youthful. Botox treatments last up to four months, so we recommend coming for a top-up treatment after three months.
From the eyes downward
This is where we tend to use another kind of facial aesthetics in Camden: dermal fillers, which are injections of gel containing hyaluronic acid. The body naturally produces this acid to retain moisture, but levels drop off after age 30. We put dermal fillers in places that need a bit of filling out. It may be the wrinkles around your mouth, those smokers’ lines or the naso-labial folds, or hollows that need plumping out. This is also a very quick treatment; it takes only minutes, but the effects can last for up to a year.
