Botox is a drug that improves your appearance by smoothing facial wrinkles.
When injected, Botox weakens or paralyzes specific muscles and blocks certain nerve signals. That keeps the muscles from contracting, preventing them from forming lines and wrinkles (and temporarily erasing present ones).
You should see the fewer wrinkles in 3-7 days, and the results can last 3-12 months.*
You might experience temporary pain, bruising, or bruising at the injection site. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, receiving Botox is inadvisable.
Dermal fillers are made of a gel-like substance. This jelly-like material is injected into specific areas to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles, skin folds, and acne scars. Dermal fillers are temporary, absorbable material.
How long the dermal filler lasts depends on the material used, and the area treated. Several types of dermal fillers can improve the look of your face.
Some of the more preferred include those with hyaluronic acid. Your body naturally makes hyaluronic acid as a component of your skin's connective tissue.
How well the dermal filler works depends on the health and age of your skin. It also hinges on the skill of the medical professional that performs the procedure; the technicians at Bello Corpo Med Spa are specially trained in the most advanced treatment methods.
Three of the most common dermal fillers are RestylaneⓇ, JuvedermⓇ, and RadiesseⓇ.
Restylane injections last about six months and are used for moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including:*
Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra typically last between six months and one year.* These fillers:
Radiesse uses calcium hydroxylapatite to treat deeper wrinkles and skin folds. It also contours the jawline and restores volume in and around your cheeks. The effects of Radiesse injections can last for up to one year.*
