BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a type of cosmetic injectable medication. When injected into the muscles of the brow, it works to smooth frown lines and give you a healthier and more youthful appearance. BOTOX can also be used to treat other conditions, such as migraine headaches and TMJ disorders.
Because BOTOX is an injectable, it involves no incisions, stitches or surgery, and you will be able to return to your daily activities after you leave our office. You can expect to begin seeing results within two days following treatment, and your results can last for up to four months.
Dermal fillers are another type of cosmetic injectable and are typically used to smooth wrinkles, lines and folds in the area of the nose and mouth. You may notice that the volume of your face diminishes as you age. Dermal fillers restore fullness to the skin to give you a younger appearance and restore the fullness of your facial contours.
Dermal fillers usually contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural hydrating substance, as well as a mild anesthetic to make your treatment more comfortable. The results from dermal fillers are usually longer-lasting than those provided by BOTOX, and in many cases may last for up to a year.
