What is Botox?
Botox is short for botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxin that softens muscle contractions. It is FDA approved for cosmetic treatment to relax facial muscles and eliminate wrinkles. Muscle contractions in the face over time cause wrinkles in the skin. Botox can be used to soften these wrinkles and relax the muscles of the face for a more youthful appearance. Botox has a temporary effect lasting approximately 3-4 months. However, with regular treatment, the wrinkles will become less pronounced. Botox can be used around the eyes, forehead, and around the mouth to treat fine and dynamic wrinkles.
Results can be seen within 5-7 days of treatment with the total effect seen around two weeks after treatment. The procedure is relatively painless, Botox is administered using a very small needle and is therefore associated with very little side effects or complications. The patient may experience temporary bruising and swelling.
There are several different brands of botulinum toxin. Ask your provider which brand would be best for you!
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a large sugar molecule that is naturally found throughout the body and is most abundant in the skin. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to attract and bind water, which keeps the skin hydrated as well as giving it volume.
As we age, we lose volume in our face which is caused by bone resorption, fat pad loss and subsequent shifting (sagging), collagen loss, and decreased hyaluronic acid production.
Dermal fillers can be used to replace this lost volume and shifting. Dermal fillers provide instant results that can last up to one year and for some products, two years. They are used to fill in lines and wrinkles as well as replace volume. They can be used around the mouth (marionette lines or smile lines), restore sunken cheeks and temples, plump and enhance lips and improve symmetry among facial features.
Dermal fillers are placed during the office visit and requires very little preparation. After the procedure, you will be able to go back to normal activity. There may be some mild redness and swelling after the procedure which is normally temporary.
