Botox & Fillers

Botox & Fillers


Botox and Fillers, which can both be effective treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. What’s the difference between Botox and fillers? Botox and its newer competitor, Dysport, are made from the botulinum neurotoxin, which blocks the action of nerves on muscles. Both Botox and Dysport are used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by muscle activity.


Dynamic wrinkles are the wrinkles you see when you animate your facial muscles, such as the “11” between your eyebrows when you frown or the lines across your forehead when you look up or raise your eyebrows. The smile lines in the corner of your eyes, also known as crow’s feet, are another good example of dynamic wrinkles.


Botox treatment
The procedure involved to do a Botox treatment is quite simple. A very tiny needle is used to inject the Botox into the wrinkle-producing muscles. No anesthesia is required and the injections usually take only 10 to 15 minutes. There is no recovery time or down time though you may see some temporary redness or bruising at the injection site. On average, it takes three to five days to start to see an effect and up to 3 weeks to see the maximum results from Botox. Results usually last about three months.
