Botox is perhaps the most famous injectable, as it was one of the first fillers to arrive on the Hollywood scene.  Botox contains a purified botulinum toxin, which produces a paralyzed effect in the injected area.  Once injected into the treatment area, the muscles are weakened, thus producing a relaxed look that minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and creases.  An experienced cosmetic surgeon should inject Botox, as too much Botox can produce the “frozen” look that’s dreaded by Hollywood starlets.  Botox can last for six to nine months, after which treatments will be needed again.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse can also be used to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; however, they achieve this look by plumping up the facial features.  Dermal fillers can be applied to wrinkled areas, and also the lips, cheeks, and chins for subtle facial reshaping.  Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is found in the body’s collagen levels.

How long do Botox and Dermal Fillers Last?

Botox can last for six to nine months, after which treatments will be needed again. Dermal fillers, however, can last from six to 18 months depending on which filler you are using.

No matter which youth-enhancing injectable treatment you pick, you can be sure that you’ll achieve the facial results you’re looking for at Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California.
