Botox works by acting as a nerve blocker. It prevents wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. The Botox binds to the nerve endings and blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that correspond to expression lines. Proceeding treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and wrinkle free while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, so the normal facial expressions are unaffected. These treatments last approximately 3 to 6 months*.
Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance of the dermis. Hyaluronic acid is the product in the body that creates firmness and gives elasticity to the skin. As we age we lose the firmness and elasticity in the skin. Fillers are used to fill the wrinkles or give volume and contouring affects to the face. Fillers can last approximately from 6 to 18 months*.
