Botox© is a safe, effective, proven method of smoothing out wrinkles in the forehead, around the eyes, mouth, and the bridge of the nose. It is injected into muscles that over time cause skin to wrinkle, and once this muscle activity is reduced, skin overlying the muscles is allowed to regain a smoother, more youthful look. There are many misconceptions about Botox©. First of all, Botox© is not a poison, but a protein created by a bacteria. There are no live or dead bacteria in Botox©. Botox© works by reducing muscle activity. Secondly, this action is not permanent, but typically lasts three to four months, at which time the patient may elect to retreat with Botox©.
Dermal Fillers is a general term used to describe bio-compatible materials placed within or under the skin to replace tissue lost by normal aging. Over time, the facial tissue loses elasticity and volume, causing folds around the mouth, nose, and chin. Gravity causes this tissue to sag and folds develop. The volume that is lost is largely a natural substance produced by the body called hyaluronic acid. The Dermal Fillers used by Corporate Center Dental Care are made up of this same material, and are injected within the skin to replace the same material lost during the aging process.
