A minute amount of the neuromodulators is injected directly into the underlying muscle, causing it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the overlying skin. </p> Yamna IrfanThu, 09 Mar 2017 14:43:51 GMTSoft-tissue Fillers for Frown Lines and Forehead Furrows <p>As we age, the natural loss of the skin’s collagen, hyaluronic acid and elasticity results in wrinkles and a loss of fullness in around the eyes and brow. The injection of soft-tissue fillers (e.g., Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra, Belotero) can temporarily improve the skin’s appearance. </p> Yamna IrfanThu, 09 Mar 2017 14:23:57 GMTFat Transfers for Wrinkles Fat transfers use processed fat from the patient’s own body to treat a wrinkled area of skin. The procedure also is known as microlipoinjection or autologous fat transplantation. Fat cells are removed by liposuction from the donor area – usually from around the navel or from the thighs or buttocks – using a small needle attached to a syringe. The fat cells are cleansed and processed, and then injected into the wrinkled area using a blunt needle and syringe. Because there is a fairly high rate of re-absorption of the fat cells into the body, the doctor will likely overfill the treated area.
