These treatments broadly fit into two groups .
Forehead lines, frown lines, eye wrinkles and crows feet are caused by muscle contraction and can all be treated with Botox. The full effects of Botox injections can be seen in 5-7 days. Results depend on the severity of wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated.
How Long Does Botox Last?
The wrinkle preventing effect of Botox lasts for between three to six months. Repeated injections can weaken muscles with subsequent treatments lasting for longer periods.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra gently soften wrinkles, lines and can fill out hollows to create the smooth contours of younger skin – without surgery. As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps to shape and support it. Dermal fillers replace this volume. Dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, create fuller lips and give your face a more supple, toned look.
Treatment with injectable fillers is quick and comfortable. The results are immediate and last from 6 to 18 months depending on the dermal filler used.
