What are Dermal Fillers and Products Like Botox?
Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are all solutions for wrinkles approved by Health Canada. These products, also known wrinkle relaxers, are injected into the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and fine lines and relax those muscles. The ingredients in these products block the signal between nerve and muscle, thereby reducing its ability to contract and form wrinkles, creating a refreshed or relaxed appearance.*
Dermal fillers replace volume and structure in the face lost through the aging process. Dermal fillers are generally used to treat folds, creases, and deeper lines that appear over time. They can be used to replace lost volume, contour your jaw line, and even enhance the natural look of your nose without surgery*. The leading brands of dermal fillers include Juvederm®, Emerval®, Perlane®, Restylane®, Belotero®, and Radiesse®. The products are specialized formulations of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the human body.
