Neurotoxins (Botox or Dysport)
Neurotoxins are injected into the muscles to temporarily block the messages between the muscle and the nerves that control them. Neurotoxins can relax the muscles on the areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions or facial pain. Neurotoxins are indicated to temporarily soften facial rhytids (wrinkles) between the eyebrows, forehead, and around the eyes.
Treatment with dermal fillers can smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, add volume to the lips, and contour facial features that have lost volume and fullness due to aging, sun exposure, illness, etc. Facial features that can be enhanced by dermal fillers include lips, cheeks, peri-oral region, jawline, and under the eyes (tear troughs). Dermal fillers help to provide a more youthful, rested appearance.
