If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles injectables are for you. Often times people my not understand the difference between Botox®, Dysport® and dermal fillers (Restylane, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Perlane, Sculptra). We feel that it is very important to educate and answer any questions that our patients or prospective patients may have. With that being said Botox® and Dysport® work by decreasing the movement of muscles that cause worry lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles. Botox® achieves this by temporarily obstructing the signals that travel from the nerves to the muscles, thus slowing muscle movement and compelling wrinkles to soften and relax. Dysport® works in a similar manner to Botox® and is what we offer as our Botox® alternative.
Our experienced clinicians inject Botox® and Dysport® to lift certain areas of the face and increase the life of dermal fillers. You can expect to results within 3-5 days, and they can last for 3-6 months. Botox® or Dysport® can stand as an individual treatment or be combined with many other anti-aging treatments for better results.
Dermal Fillers, however, are products that puff up weakened facial features, and often can stimulate collagen growth. Each dermal filler is unique in its own way but they all work in two ways. First, they plump the skin and gently lift it to restore collagen loss due to the normal aging process. Secondly, dermal fillers motivate the body to create its own natural collagen.
Besides lifting the characteristics of the face, restore volume, and improve wrinkles, they rejuvenate the skin providing a smooth youthful look. Dermal fillers work rather quickly and can last from a few months to more than a year. Both forms of treatment work well separately but provide optimal results when used in combination with each other.
There are many different types of Dermal Fillers such as:
