Botox & Dermal Fillers
Discover the secret to timeless beauty with Botox and dermal fillers. Achieve smoother, youthful-looking skin today.
New Direction now offers our patients injectable neurotoxins (like Botox) and dermal fillers. These minimally invasive cosmetic injections can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and add fullness to areas that have grown thinner over time.
At New Direction, we offer three different types of injectable toxins, including:
Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport work by freezing facial muscles responsible for forming lines and wrinkles on the face. These products are injected with a fine needle in a procedure that takes only a few minutes to complete. The injections freeze muscle activity, relaxing the targeted facial muscles to minimize wrinkles that have appeared due to repeated facial expressions.
Botox is a brand name for a product made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botox treats mild to moderate wrinkle types, including laugh lines, lip lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. The product works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing wrinkles to soften and relax. Botox can take approximately one week to show effects once completed, lasting about three to four months before repeat treatments.
Xeomin is another brand name for a product similar to Botox. Xeomin smooths wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and eyebrows. Like Botox, it blocks signals from the nerves to muscles, causing them to soften over time. Compared to Botox, Xeomin is slightly less likely to cause an allergic reaction because it has fewer fillers, making it a good choice for people sensitive to medications.
Dysport is another type of injection for temporary improvement in the look of frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Whereas Botox is used to correct mild to moderate lines, Dysport is used to correct moderate to severe lines. Compared to Botox, Dysport also works faster, causing a reduction in wrinkles in just a few days.
What to Expect
The procedure is relatively painless, as your skin is numbed beforehand by applying an anesthetic called BLT cream directly to the skin. You’ll be asked not to lie down for 2-4 hours after the procedure and not to rub the area for 24 hours.
Once the procedure is complete, ice can be applied to keep the swelling down and help prevent bruising, although it is usually unnecessary.
Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure administered through an injection just under the skin. Fillers can help plump the skin to soften or eliminate wrinkles, restore volume, and smooth lines and creases in your face, jawline, and lips.
At New Direction, we offer three different types of dermal fillers, including:
All three of these products contain hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, particularly in the connective tissue of the skin, which means that most patients tolerate these products without an allergic reaction.
The three different products listed above have similar qualities. The decision to use one over the other can be nuanced, depending on your cosmetic goals. Come talk to us in a consultation, and we’ll help you decide whether dermal fillers suit you.
What to Expect
When you come to New Direction for dermal filler, we’ll discuss your previous history and experience with toxins and dermal fillers, the type of treatment you are considering, and the risks and benefits of the procedure. We provide local anesthesia using a dental block for dermal and lip filler procedures. The treatment generally takes less than one hour, and you can go home immediately after the appointment ends. Recovery time is less than a day, which means you can return to work right away.
Once the procedure is complete, ice can be applied to keep the swelling down and to help prevent bruising. We also will provide patients with a lip serum because fillers in the lips tend to cause dryness for several days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox and Dermal Fillers?
Botox and dermal fillers are best applied to patients in good health, have adequate muscle strength at the injection site, and have a healthy expectation for the possible results. We’ll help you decide if you can achieve your goals with these products. Call for a consultation.
