Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin. Facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. NOMS providers can determine which facial injections and what injectable fillers treatments are right for you.
Made of a hyaluronic acid gel, Juvederm is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration. Juvederm is designed to temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is made by Allergan, the same makers of Botox.
Botox is the trade name for Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin in the form of a purified protein. The mechanism of action for Botox is really quite simple; it is injected into facial muscles but really doesn’t affect the muscle at all. It works by blocking the transmitters between the motor nerves that innervate the muscle. The areas typically treated with Botox for wrinkles are the forehead, between the eyes, around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and around the lips (smokers lines or gummy smile). There is no loss of sensory feeling in the muscles. Once the motor nerve endings are interrupted, the muscle cannot contract, causing wrinkles in the skin to smooth. The effects last approximately three to four months, at which time the patient will require re-treatment.
