BOTOX® is a highly effective, safe, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce the appearance of the toughest wrinkles. Injections of BOTOX® into facial muscles block the chemicals that signal muscle contraction and relaxes the overlying skin and soft tissue. Results are generally seen anywhere from two to seven days after injection and can last up to four months (see research details at www.Botox.com). With regular reapplication the results begin to last longer, especially if treatments are done before the muscles are allowed to return to full strength.
Millions of Americans have benefited from Botox® treatments to treat, as well as prevent, frown lines of the face, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Often wrinkles are creases that have been worn into the skin and subcutaneous tissue by making the same repeated expression over many years. The muscles causing these “expression lines” can be relaxed by blocking nerve impulses.

BOTOX® & DERMAL FILLERS® – IS IT FOR ME?
by Erin Owoc, Dermatology Nurse Practitioner
Are you starting to pay more attention to the wrinkles across your forehead, the lines between your eyes, or your crow’s feet? If those areas are starting to bother you, BOTOX® might be the answer for you. BOTOX® provides the ability to relax the muscles around your forehead, between your eyes and by your crow’s feet to “smooth out” these wrinkles and is extremely effective. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a very safe and quick procedure that has no down time and is virtually painless. It is best to choose a medical practitioner that has artistic skills and listens to what expectations you may have to be able to achieve your desired results. Make sure your medical practitioner uses only FDA approved ALLERGAN. (YES YOU MUST ASK THAT.)
You will start seeing results within 7 days and the results from BOTOX® typically last 3-4 months. I get asked a lot on what age someone concerned about their wrinkles should start using BOTOX®. Some people start aging very early (especially if they have been in the sun a lot or a smoker). My answer is generally when you start seeing the lines “at rest”, which means you are starting to see the lines while having no facial expression. Right when you start seeing the lines would be a good time to start using BOTOX® to prevent the “etching” in your skin and to avoid deep wrinkles that would follow. I am also asked quite often about the safety concerns on injecting BOTOX® in your skin. BOTOX® is quite safe and is FDA approved. The average cost per area is $270-$380.
Are you starting to notice the lines running between your nose and your mouth? If so, dermal fillers might be the answer for you. As our skin ages, the dermis gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin; elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles; hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin. A Dermal Filler a compound made up of Hyaluronic Acid that is a proven cure to virtually eliminate the deep lines around your nasolabial folds (lines between your nose and mouth) and other moderate to severe facial folds on your face. Dermal Fillers also enhance the facial contouring and can physically enhance the lips. Because Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body, it dissolves naturally with time and requires no allergy testing prior to treatment.
The three most popular dermal fillers on the market are; Restylane®, Perlane® and Juvederm®. The most popular is Restylane® because it has been around the longest. Juvederm® is quickly gaining popularity because of it’s ability to last longer. However selecting a filler with your medical practitioner will depend on area treated and desired outcome. Most results last up to six months to a little over a year. The most common side effect is a little bruising after the injections. Some mild burning and stinging is normal and quickly resolves. Injection of fillers usually requires the use of either a topical numbing cream or a local injection of numbing medication. Then, using a small needle, the dermal filler is injected into each wrinkle or scar that requires treatment. The average cost for Restylane® treatment is $600 per area.
The use of BOTOX® and/or Dermal Fillers are proven to truly take many years off the age of your face and are shown to be very safe when administered by an experienced medical practitioner.
