What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable neuromodulators that temporarily alter the nerve impulses of targeted muscles, reducing or eliminating contraction-induced wrinkles. Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance, bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, or Botulinum Toxin A, but they work the same way: they block the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles.


What areas can I use it for?

The most common targets are horizontal lines across the forehead and perpendicular frown lines between the brows (sometimes called "11s"), but many also rely on Botox for crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, lines around the neck, eyebrow lifting, and even profuse underarm sweating and migraines.


What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

While the products themselves are fairly similar, and Botox is more common in the United States, Dysport is thought to show effects faster (3-4 days as compared to Botox’s 2 weeks), look more natural and last longer. The ratio for Botox to Dysport is 1:3 units, and the products are typically priced accordingly.


Why get Botox? 

By reducing the intensity and frequency of contraction-induced wrinkles, these treatments also prevent the formation of deeper lines, in the long run, making them an increasingly popular anti-aging strategy.

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are made of hyaluronic acid and can smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, add volume to the lips, and contour facial features that have lost their volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposure, etc. These products can provide facial rejuvenation and produce natural-appearing volume under wrinkles and folds, and add additional volume to desired areas. The results can often be seen immediately.

Both Juvederm and Restylane can be used for various areas of the face, and though similar, have different consistencies and price points. All patients must be at least 21 years old for fillers. Book a consultation to find out which filler is right for your desired results!
