Botulinum Toxin is a liquid that is injected into the muscle to temporarily prevent it from contracting. Contraction of the muscles are what cause wrinkles over time. Botox has been around for over 20 years and was initially used strictly for medical purposes until it’s wonderful beauty benefits were discovered.
These injections are fast and cause very little discomfort, results can take a few days up to two weeks to fully set in and last approximetely 3-6 months.
Dermal Fillers are made of a clear gel substance called Hyaluronic Acid. This is something that is already found inside of our bodies and is safely broken down and metabolized over time. HA is a thirsty molecule so it attracts water and plumps up once injected under the skin. The actual product lasts approximately 1-2 years but helps rebuild collagen and surrounding tissues which has lasting effects. HA can also be dissolved with a substance called Hyaluronidase, so no injection is permanent.
Areas of injection are numbed prior to procedure and the product also has a numbing agent inside to make the experience even more comfortable.
Areas that can be treated include: The lips, under eyes, apple and sides of the cheeks, the under eyes, chin, jawline, marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
