Botox is a purified and processed botulinum toxin from the Clostridium Botulinum Microorganism. As a paralytic agent, it is used in safe dosages to smoothen out facial wrinkles and fine lines caused by excessive muscle use.
Years of facial muscle movements such as facial expressions have caused muscles underneath the face to tighten, resulting in the wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth. With Botox, these muscles are finally allowed to relax, reducing visible lines for a much younger look.
Botox is an extremely popular treatment because of its simplicity and brevity. The procedure is non-surgical and is only composed of several Botox injections in target areas of the face. The procedure can be done right after the consultation and will only take about 15 minutes.
Effects are visually noticeable within several days, while the full effects will be evident within two weeks. Botox can last about 4-5 months and when the effects of the compound start to wear off, the treatment can be renewed as easily as stepping into our office for another round.
Often used in conjunction with Botox, fillers are non-surgical treatments used in cosmetic dermatology for adding volume in certain target areas of the face to smooth out recesses such as lines and wrinkles. Fillers are also more versatile, being able to treat a wider array of conditions such as adding volume to cheeks, lips, recessed scars and even recontour facial deformities.
Dermal fillers are either natural or synthetic compounds that are directly injected into the face to “fill” out the target areas. The most commonly used dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid because it is a natural compound in the skin, which works alongside collagen and elastin to give the face a young and full look.
With two main types of dermal fillers, they are both more or less the same in every way except for the fact that one (Juvederm) can last between 6 months to a year, while the other (Restylane or Perlane) can last up to two years.
The procedure to have dermal fillers is essentially as straightforward as having the Botox procedure. The initial step is the consultation with the specialist trained to do the procedure. The consultation will consist of the specialist’s recommendation for target areas depending on your preferences.
The actual procedure will start with local anesthetic around the target areas and then once the medication has set in, the dermal fillers will be injected. The actual injection of dermal fillers are relatively quick and as soon as the procedure is done, you can go back to your normal daily activities right away.
