BOTOX® injections are a highly popular solution for treating fine lines and wrinkles in the face. The innovative formula relaxes target areas of the face to prevent muscle contraction, which consequently smoothes wrinkles and creases for a more youthful complexion.
Botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (the medical name for excessive sweating).
Botox is the original and best-known brand name and the most tested product on the market. It is the result of many decades of studies and has been used extensively in medicine.

Dysport® is designed to rejuvenate the face by preventing muscles of the treated area from contracting, similar to BOTOX® injections. It has proven to effectively smooth lines and wrinkles in such areas as the forehead and between the eyes.
What are fillers and how do they work?
As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component.
The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we’re born, we have plentiful amounts of hyaluronic acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look.
JUVÉDERM® can provide a subtle smoothing effect to signs of facial aging, such as wrinkles and folds, as well as add volume to thin lips. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is specifically designed to treat midfacial aging of the cheeks for long-lasting results.
The dermal filler Restylane® can fill wrinkles and creases of the face to help you achieve a younger-looking appearance. The injectable can also increase lip volume for a more desirable contour.
