Botox & Fillers Q & A
What are Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are both purified forms of botulinum toxin. When they’re injected into targeted muscles, they temporarily block nerve signals that make muscles contract. In the process, the wrinkles caused by those muscles are significantly diminished or eliminated.
In addition to smoothing your existing wrinkles, Botox and Dysport can help prevent new lines from becoming etched into your skin.
What Types of Wrinkles are Treated with Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport treat wrinkles that develop over years of using muscles to form facial expressions, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead furrows
- Neck bands
After your treatment, you’ll see the difference in just a few days and your results last up to four months.
How Do Dermal Fillers Diminish Wrinkles?
Over time, your face loses volume and your skin produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid. These changes can lead to classic wrinkles around your nose and mouth, droopy cheeks, and thin lips.
Dermal fillers are the perfect way to quickly turn back time. They contain hyaluronic acid to immediately restore volume. Plus, they also help stimulate collagen production. When dermal fillers are injected below wrinkles, or in your cheeks or lips, they restore natural volume and diminish the wrinkles.
