Injectable fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are used to fill in facial creases, plump up the lips, and sculpt the cheeks. These fillers can soften the signs of aging by sculpting the jaw line and softening the jowls. The effects are immediate and patients can return to work that same day.
Botox is a natural product that can be used to soften and smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (the glabella). The affects are noticable after 24 hours and reach the full effect by 3 days. It usually lasts from 3 to 4 months, but this can vary from patient to patient. Botox is also helpful in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles at the corners of the eyes.
