Preventative Dermal Fillers are injections that claim to prevent wrinkles. Neurotoxins has been marketed for close to 20 years as a solution for the visible signs of aging on your skin. Preventative Dermal Fillers start before any wrinkles or fine lines in your face are visible. The ideal candidate is someone who has begun to see faint lines. When you see those faint lines, you’re seeing a future wrinkle. People in their mid-to-late 20s or even early 30s would be considered candidates for preventative treatment. Twenty-five would be a good age to start if you have a very expressive face and lines.
Neurotoxins target the muscles of facial expression by blocking the nerve signals to those muscles. Because the majority of wrinkles are caused by repetitive movement of those muscles, the treatment limits those expressions to potentially prevent wrinkles.
Dermal Filler works differently than dermal fillers, which inject a gel or collagen substitutes to make your skin appear more firm.
The neurotoxins relax the muscles underneath your skin by blocking the nerve responses that tell your face to make certain expressions. Wrinkles are caused by your face making the same expressions, over and over again. Neurotoxins limit those expressions to potentially prevent wrinkles.
