The Aging Process is Inevitable
BUT...That doesn't mean you allow every life experience to show on your face
Injections are one of the most popular ways to treat facial wrinkles. Two of the most common types of injections are dermal fillers and neuromodulators, like Botox® cosmetic and Dysport®.
Dermal fillers are used to fill in lines and wrinkles on the face. They can also be used to increase volume in areas like the lips. Dermal fillers are made of natural or synthetic materials.
What are Dermal Fillers and Neuromodulators?
Dermal fillers and neuromodulators are injectable treatments that help to improve the appearance of the skin. If you are considering either of these treatments, it is important to understand the difference between them. Dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and lines, while neuromodulators are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Both treatments are safe and effective when administered by our qualified medical professionals.

How Do Dermal Fillers and Neuromodulators Work?
Dermal fillers and neuromodulators are two of the most popular treatments for aging skin and smoothing worry lines. Dermal fillers are used to add volume and plump up the skin, while neuromodulators work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Both dermal fillers and neuromodulators can help you look younger and more refreshed. These options are both minimally invasive procedures, so they’re a smart choice if you want to get rid of wrinkles and restore the look of fullness without having surgery.
What to expect?
Most treatments only last 30 minutes and you can resume your normal activities without any downtime.
You should avoid exercising for at least 24 hours following your treatment, and if you do go ahead with your workout that day then make sure it is light exercise only. You may consider keeping your head elevated when sleeping so as not cause unnecessary discomfort.
Avoid rubbing or scratching the injection site to prevent the filler from migrating to other others.
With a few days of downtime, you can expect to see full results from your dermal filler procedure. With Botox® and Dysport®, visible effects may take up to one week as the targeted muscles begin relaxing around it—and these procedures usually leave patients looking and feeling more youthful than ever!
Both procedures may result in mild redness, swelling or bruising, which are temporary and should dissipate within a few days.
Neuromodulator injections last anywhere from 3-4 months, while dermal fillers have a longer-lasting effect, with results lasting from 9-24 months, depending on the skin and particular filler used.
Am I a candidate?
You may be a suitable candidate for dermal fillers and neuromodulators if you are physically healthy and have realistic goals regarding the improvements offered by the treatment. However, it is important to note that not everyone is a viable candidate for these treatments. For example, smokers may be at a higher risk of complications following treatment, and individuals with very thin facial expression lines may not see a significant improvement after treatment. It is important to consult with a qualified, medical professional to determine if you are a good candidate for dermal fillers and neuromodulators and to discuss any potential risks or complications.
