What is the difference between aesthetic fillers and neurotoxins injections for facial aging?

Aesthetic fillers are injectables used to instantly smooth and plump the skin. Most of these are
made with hyaluronic acid. This acid is present in all living organisms. It is natural to your body
and adds volume and restores a more youthful appearance by filling wrinkle lines or areas
needing more fullness. Many of the brands we use in our office are FDA approved for
superficial, medium and deep wrinkles; vertical rhytids (smoker lines), smile lines, nasolabial
folds and marionette's lines. Proven to give beautiful and long lasting results from 6 months
and up to 18 months depending upon the filler selected.

Neurotoxin injections, most commonly referred to as “Botox™”, are injections that smooth
deep facial lines by relaxing the muscles that form facial wrinkles. Most common areas are the
vertical, angry lines between your brows, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. These are also FDA
approved for forehead and glabella areas. Botox, a brand of neurotoxin, has been prescribed
for decades for treatment of muscle spasms and other non-cosmetic areas. Neurotoxin results
last for 3 to 4 months.

Smooth As Silk

By Dr. Clarissa Kroese

Do the vertical lines around your mouth have you down? Do you dream of softer, more luscious lips? I have a way to turn your frown upside down. The answer is in Restylane® Silk.

Restylane Silk is a FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler designed for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing of the wrinkles and lines around the mouth. This product gives your lips a soft natural look. No “duck lips” with this filler! Because the lips are a sensitive area, an ultra-fine needle is used for the injection and lidocaine is included in the product for a more comfortable experience.

The results with this product is instant and can last up to six months with possible temporary side effects such as mild swelling and bruising.

Achieve the lips you would love to have without the fear of not looking like you. We can enhance your natural beauty by getting natural looking results.
