Botox and Dysport
This non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure is the number one cosmetic treatment in America, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetics is a natural protein used for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lines in the forehead, frown lines, and eyes in adult patients aged 18-65.
BOTOX® works by targeting and temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. The Botox blocks the signal to the muscle to inform it to contract. Therefore, the muscle doesn't contract and the skin over the muscle relaxes, resulting in a much smoother and youthful appearance. The ten minute procedure consists of a series of tiny injections into the targeted area; the effects of BOTOX® are reversible and gradually wear off in about four to six months.
A dermal filler is a substance which is injected into the skin to plump it up, making it firmer and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.
There are many fillers on the market these days, but the most popular and in-demand product is Perlane & Restylane from Medicis Pharmaceuticals. Perlane & Restylane is a synthetically produced non-animal product consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of all our organs and tissues.
Dermal fillers are extremely safe with a very low incidence of allergic reaction. You can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment, which usually clears up within 1-2 days.
Dermal fillers are used to fill out lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose, and cheeks and can even be effective for smoothing out scars. Fillers are very popular for giving the lips a fuller look, and for giving the lip better definition and reduction in lipstick bleed. Fillers are also very effective for facial contouring – for example, cheek and chin dimples – can be achieved using dermal fillers to smooth out the hollows and alter the facial contour.
