Because our skin is so easily damaged by the sun, signs of aging can begin as early as age 30. As we mature further, our skin shows significant signs of sun damage, or “photo damage” and looks wrinkled and dry sometimes revealing small red or brown spots. The skin’s tone and colour changes too, pores can be larger and small red patches of veins or capillaries begin to appear on the nose and cheeks.
The outer layer of your skin, the epidermis, responds well to laser therapies, but the deeper lines and wrinkles, those between the eyes and around the mouth for example, can be dramatically improved by the injection of soft tissue fillers such as JUVÉDERM® . Lips can be made to look fuller and cheeks rounder with soft tissue fillers.
BOTOX Cosmetic® and soft tissue fillers are among the most performed cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures. BOTOX injections can be used to relax frown muscles thus decreasing the formation of lines. BOTOX can also be used to lift the brow, and reduce lines around the eyes.
