Botox® (botulinum toxin) is not the only means of treating wrinkles, superficial lines and a loss of fullness in the lips or cheeks. Injections of hyaluronic acid or lactic acid are another option as well.
Both of these substances are natural components of the skin and can be used to optimize imperfections in the lines and contours of the face.
When carefully injected, very small doses of hyaluronic acid are enough to restore your face to its original radiance. This minimizes wrinkles and prevents them from growing deeper.
Lactic acid stimulates the body's natural production of collagen and gives the face new elasticity. Facial contours regain their firmness, while sunken cheeks become fuller and rounder. Wrinkles grow more smooth, and the skin appears firmer and tighter.
