POLY L LACTIC ACID (PLA)– These types of soft tissue fillers are used to treat deeper facial lines, and though they offer semi-permanent results, it’s possible that you’ll need an occasional “touch up” several weeks after your initial injections.
You may consider neurotoxin injections for cosmetic reasons if you are developing lines and wrinkles on your face due to common facial movements. Depending on genetics, lines can appear on the face as early as your late twenties to as late as your early forties. If you are prone to developing lines and to making facial expressions that lead to wrinkles, your doctor may recommend using botulinum toxin as a preventative measure.
DERMAL GEL FILLER (HYALURONIC ACID)- Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance and primarily used to promote fullness and volume.
