These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.



Dynamic lines: are the lines formed because of repeated muscle contraction. Ideal treatments for those lines are Botox injections. Static lines are formed without the influence of muscle contraction and they are present while at rest. Some causative factors of static lines development are: sun exposure, smoking and gravitation. Ideal treatment for static lines are dermal fillers.
