BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® & Restylane® Injections
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®
There are a number of non-surgical treatments that use different types of injections that we can use to help smooth facial fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport® Injections can dramatically improve your facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® Injections have the most dramatic effect on "expression wrinkles." These are the frown lines or furrows found between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead lines or furrows, and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Patients who notice these types of wrinkles will usually see remarkable and rapid improvement after treatment with these injections. You will notice that the lines will be softened, but may not completely disappear. With regular treatments, the appearance of these lines will be greatly reduced. The effects of a single treatment will usually last three to four months, at which time another treatment may be required to continue seeing desirable results.
Restylane® Dermal or Gel Filler
Depending on the type of facial wrinkles that you wish to smooth, other types of non-surgical injections may be used either alone or in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® Injection. Wrinkles may be grouped into two types: Dynamic wrinkles, which are formed when muscles contract, or Static wrinkles, which are lines or depressions that exist even when there is no muscle action or pull on the skin. Dynamic wrinkles are best treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, whereas static wrinkles are best treated with substances that subtly restore lost volume, plump up and fill out the problem lines. These substances are known medically as "dermal fillers" or “gel fillers.” Dermal fillers are easy to inject and are biodegradable and thus not permanent. There are many popular types of dermal filler we use to increase volume and fill areas of concern. These include Radiesse® and Restylane®. Depending on your areas of concern and the type of wrinkle, we may suggest just using BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections alone, or in combination with Radiesse® or Restylane® or Juvéderm™ in order to achieve the best possible results.
