What Is Botox®? How does it get rid of lines and wrinkles?

Botox® or Dysport are purified form of neuromuscular toxin that works by stopping wrinkle forming muscles, allowing the muscle to relax and the wrinkle to fade. It does this without impeding your ability to make regular facial expressions (don’t worry; you’ll still be able to smile, laugh, frown, etc.). Last year, 6.7 million cosmetic botulinum toxin treatments were performed with excellent safety and aesthetic results. Best of all, no downtime is needed after treatment.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to fade wrinkles caused by muscle movement (like crow’s feet, frown lines, etc.), Botox® is an excellent treatment to try.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Another option for rejuvenating the face with injectables is the dermal filler. While Botox® smooths the skin by relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles, dermal fillers work by “filling” in lost volume. They can be used to add volume to the lips, smooth away wrinkles, restore volume to the face, and even in non-surgical nasal correction. We offer a wide range of fillers and will select the best options to enhance your areas of concern. Examples include juvederm, Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, Restylane® silk, Restylane® Lift and Belatero.

I Am Very Busy. Do I Have Time for Injectable Treatments?

Injectable treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers are the perfect cosmetic treatments for busy men and women. These treatments are performed in our offices without the need for sedation or anesthesia. Treatment often takes less than 30 minutes. You can drive yourself home or back to work as soon as your treatment is complete. Everyone has time for Botox® and dermal fillers.

Are Injectable Treatments Painful?

Many patients worry that injectable treatments will be painful and uncomfortable. They are surprised to discover that the treatment is much more comfortable than they had imagined. Many of the dermal fillers contain an anesthetic to increase your comfort. The needles used to inject are very fine and the process is over rather quickly. If you’re worried about pain and discomfort, talk with us, but know that most patients find these treatments to be very tolerable.
