Botulinum neurotoxins come from various strains of the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. In cosmetic medicine, we most commonly use Type-A. There are a few different brands of botulinum toxin type A (Botox, Nuceva, Xeomin, Dysport) and they are used to block the junction between the nerve and the muscle. The amount of block varies from person to person and the amount used but overall there is a decrease in the strength of the muscle and therefore the wrinkles it can make in the skin.
The effects of botulinum toxin type A last anywhere from 11-16 weeks on average, with some brands may last slightly longer than others. The toxin will be broken down by the body and the muscle will gradually return back to its activity. In general, it is best to consider retreating the muscle around 11-12 weeks from the previous injection or before the return of full muscle activity.
The product effects will start working around day 3-5 and reach its peak effect around day 14.
Dermal fillers have played a significant role in facial rejuvenation for many years. Dermal fillers can be biodegradable (Hyaluronic acid, Radiesse, Sulptra) and nonbiodegradable (Bellafill or Aquamid)
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in many tissues of the body (joints, connective tissues, neural tissues). Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic products where the hyaluronic acid is cross-linked in order to provide stability when injected into the facial tissues. The goal of dermal fillers is to restore the volume loss that has occurred with the aging process. There are many different products with different properties to help address different tissues from your lips to your temples. In general HA dermal fillers will last approximately one year and will be naturally broken down over time in by our body. This product has an agent for reversal which can be helpful to address any complications if they should arise.
Radiesse (is a non HA dermal filler) made of calcium hydroxylapatite. This product has been approved to inject into hands and certain areas of the face. This product is known for maintaining its form, lifting tissues and stimulating collagen. It is generally found to last for 18 months to 2 years. Unlike HA dermal fillers, it does not have a reversal agent.
