After a recent visit with my ‘new’ dentist, I was told a jab of botox in the jaw would work in favour of a night splint, to stop teeth clenching!
I’m sure I know where I’d prefer to get botox, and it ain’t in the jaw!!
Seriously though, I have tried botox a few times.
Ironically, in my early thirties, where to be honest, I really didn’t need it.
Now, at an age where I could definitely do with a little fine tuning, botox is no longer that appealing.
Fillers such as Restylane, a dermal filler made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) are extremely popular.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Fillers can give your skin freshness where it’s needed and reduce the look of dark circles under the eyes, but as with botox, it isn’t cheap.
If needles don’t grab you, and you’d rather a more natural approach to smoothing your wrinkles, here are a few alternatives.
