Cosmetic fillers temporarily block the release of a chemical at the nerve endings of a muscle to stop it from contracting. The relaxation of this muscle lessens the tension of the muscle and ultimately reduces lines and wrinkles. If lines are present without movement, these are called static lines, and these may improve slightly with cosmetic fillers. However, they may also need additional treatment with a dermal filler.
To administer the treatment, the area to be treated is marked with the exact sites. The product is then injected using a Juvapen delivery device, which allows for an extremely precise dose administration. Patients also find this extremely comfortable.
