Aging is a natural part of life, but that doesn't mean we have to accept the signs of aging on our skin. We all want to feel young on the inside and outside, and now you can enhance your natural beauty with Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, and Restylane Dermal Fillers.
Let's dive into each of these treatments and see how they can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
Botox: The Wrinkle Reducer
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is an injectable neurotoxin that helps reduce wrinkles, one of the skin's main ways of saying, "Hey, I'm getting older!" Botox is administered in unit doses, with the amount varying by person.
Typically, people use Botox to ease wrinkles caused by facial expressions. The most common areas to get the injections are between the eyebrows, at crow's feet, and on horizontal forehead lines. Botox works by temporarily inhibiting muscle contraction, improving the appearance of wrinkles. The effects last approximately three to four months.
Our hot take: Botox is a time-tested option for achieving a wrinkle-free, youthful appearance. Embrace your age, but don't let it define your skin!
Dysport: The Quick Spreader
Dysport is another type of neurotoxin, designed to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It has the same active ingredient as Botox (botulinum toxin type A), but Dysport is more diluted, making it better for larger surface areas. This means results may be seen sooner.
Dysport works best on horizontal forehead lines and vertical frown lines, also known as "11" lines. It works by blocking the nerve receptors that cause muscle movement, softening desired wrinkles. Dysport often lasts a little longer than Botox, and while it is less per unit, more Dysport is used at each session, so the cost is generally about the same.
Our hot take: If you want to address forehead lines or deeper frown lines, Dysport might be the right choice for you. Spread the love and spread the results!
Juvederm and Restylane: The Volume Boosters
If Botox and Dysport are muscle relaxers, Juvederm and Restylane dermal fillers are the opposite. Instead of relaxing lines away, these injectables fill them in, adding back volume lost in different areas of the face due to aging.
Juvederm and Restylane are great for plumping up lips, reducing smile lines, bringing back volume to cheeks, lifting sagging neck skin, and eliminating wrinkles at the corners of the mouth. They are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that decreases as we age. When injected, these fillers give your skin a needed boost and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a natural plumping effect.
Our hot take: If you're looking for an overall more youthful look, Juvederm and Restylane are the way to go. Say goodbye to hollow areas and sagging skin!
