What is the difference between dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane and wrinkle relaxers like Botox?

Over time, the muscles above and between your eyebrows repeatedly contract, causing wrinkles to form. Wrinkle relaxers are generally injected around these muscles. They relax the muscle for a period of four to six months so that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced, creating a refreshed or relaxed appearance.

Dermal fillers replace volume and structure lost through the aging process. The leading brands in this category include Juvederm®, Emervel®, Perlane®, Restylane®, Belotero®, and Radiesse®. Dermal fillers are generally used to replace volume in lips and reduce the appearance of deep folds and lost volume in the face.

Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are often used in combination in different areas for an optimal result.   Our physician specialists are very careful in the application of these products to avoid a frozen look or an overly treated look which can be the result of their use in the wrong hands.

Will a treatment with Botox make me look frozen or unnatural?

At Victoria Park Medispa, our goal is to ensure our clients always look naturally rejuvenated. That is why all treatments are performed only by aesthetic medical specialists – plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, and dermatologists.

Friends should not be able to tell that you had a treatment, just that you look fresher and more relaxed. You can review our before and after photos in person before any treatment to understand the improvements from any treatment.
