These days, more and more men and women want to have young and healthy looking skin. Wrinkles are categorized as facial movement wrinkles, also known as dynamic expression lines (on the forehead and around the eyes), or wrinkles caused by gravity and sagging skin, also known as gravitational folds, (the folds of the skin around the mouth). Different methods are applied according to the type and location of wrinkles. Botox and filling, which eradicate or limit indications of aging, can be applied at any age. Botox is used as a method of treating dynamic expression lines; wrinkling is minimized by botox applied to the muscles that cause the lines. Botox can be applied at any age. It prevents wrinkles at an early age, and eradicates them later in life. The procedure is carried out by dermatologists or plastic surgeons.

NOTE: Botox is a proven method to treat migraine. Botox therapy carried out by neurologists is effective for a period of 3 to 6 months.
The main reason for age-related damage and loss of volume in the skin is a decline in natural substances such as collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastic in that make the skin firm and taut. This is most commonly evident around the eyes and mouth, in the chin and cheek line, on the cheeks and at the edges of one’s lips. Filling procedures carried out by dermatologists and plastic surgeons easily remove age-related lines and wrinkles. The filling material is injected under the skin in the area effected by wrinkles or loss of volume. This material’s most important feature is its capacity to hold water, which effectively overcomes the underlying loss of volume. The results are immediately visible. Hyaluronic acid is a basic element naturally occurring in the skin’s middle layers. The treatment remains effective for a period of 6 – 18 months.
