When you want to look younger and more refreshed or maybe just to make a change like plumper lips, you have excellent nonsurgical options at Total Wellness Healthcare Clinic in Upper Marlboro and Waldorf, Maryland. Dr. Yetunde Sannoh offers wrinkle-relaxing treatments like Botox® and Dysport® and fillers to give you fast results with no downtime. Book now by phone or through the online scheduler.
Wrinkle relaxers like Botox® and Dysport® are both derived from botulinum toxin type A. These injectable treatments work by intercepting the nerve signals to your muscles, specifically the forehead and around-the-eye muscles. This prevents your muscles from moving, and from forming wrinkles. Both Botox and Dysport take effect within just a few days.
There are a few main places on the top part of the face for Botox and Dysport injections. These areas are:
Some less common areas for Botox and Dysport treatment include neck lines and smoker’s lines around the lips.
Both Botox and Dysport last up to four months. They may last longer for some patients, particularly after consistent maintenance treatments.
Dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume or adding extra volume below your skin, which makes them perfect for smoothing out wrinkles or contouring your face.
Most of today’s popular dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is nearly identical to the hyaluronic acid that you make naturally. Hyaluronic acid forms a kind of support web under your skin that gently pushes your skin up to the level where you want it. Dermal fillers give you immediate results.
Dermal filler injections are usually focused on the middle and lower parts of your face. This includes:
Less commonly, some patients have dermal filler injections in the undereye hollows and even in the hands.
It depends on what type of filler you use and the treatment area. For example, Juvéderm fillers usually last anywhere from one to two years depending on the specific formula. Other hyaluronic acid fillers generally last for a year or more, as well. Fillers in the cheeks last longer than those in the lips.
