Wrinkles, Crows Feet, Frawn Lines treatment With Botox & Fillers :
Botox and its newer competitor, Dysport, are made from the botulinum neurotoxin, which blocks the action of nerves on muscles. Both Botox and Dysport are used to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles caused by muscle activity.
The procedure involved to do a Botox treatment is quite simple. A very tiny needle is used to inject the Botox into the wrinkle-producing muscles. No anesthesia is required and the injections usually take only 10 to 15 minutes. There is no recovery time or down time though you may see some temporary redness or bruising at the injection site. On average, it takes three to five days to start to see an effect and up to 3 weeks to see the maximum results from Botox. Results usually last about three months.
Fillers are complementary procedures - they are not the same thing as Botox and should not be thought of the same. While Botox is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, fillers are used for static wrinkles and to enhance volume.
Filler injections usually require local or topical anesthesia and can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes or more depending on the area being filled. You should stop any NSAID pain relievers, including aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen and Aleve, for at least one week before the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling and avoid scheduling any important social events for at least several days after the injections.
