BOTOX ® Cosmetic has revolutionized the cosmetics industry and is the gold standard for aesthetic treatments: it reverses the effects of facial wrinkles such as Crow's feet, worry lines, and laugh lines. BOTOX® injections are non-invasive, non-surgical procedures that have been administered over 10 million times since 2002. Results may not be as effective in patients over the age of 65. Another option is a similar competitor known as Dysport ® and it targets the same areas at BOTOX®, such as the frown lines between the eyebrows.
Juvederm®XC and Restylane® are both dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds like the lines known as nasolabial folds (nose to the corners of the mouth). They also provide a fuller appearance for lip augmentation, deeper folds and marionette lines. Restylane® has been used in over 70 countries and in more than 1.4 million treatments in the United States since 2000. Both types of injections are based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides volume and fullness to the skin, so fillers replace the hyaluronic acid the skin has lost (from aging, sunlight exposure and other factors).
