What You Should Know and Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need Botox, Fillers or Both?

Botox (or Dysport) is a procedure used to relax wrinkles on the face and neck. This
involves injecting purified botulinum toxin into desired areas of the face and neck,
relaxing these specific muscles so they cannot pull and create wrinkling of skin.

Dermal fillers (Juvederm, Perlane, Restalyne, Radiesse) are used to correct static
wrinkles, and to plump lines and facial features (cheeks, lips, marionette lines, cheek
hollows and frown lines) that have lost volume.
