Botox® is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 20-65 years of age. It is a physician administered treatment approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Botox® is a purified protein, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows. During a 10-minute treatment, a few tiny injections are given in the muscles that cause wrinkles and frowns. Within days there is a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines which can last up to 4 months.

Restylane® products are cosmetic dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane and Perlane® are made of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane has been modified slightly to last longer than the body's hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane and Perlane is produced by a biotechnical process.
Restylane and Perlane are hydrophilic or "water loving." The hydrophilic nature of these hyaluronic acid molecules and their three dimensional structure allows them to bind many times their own weight in water. As hyaluronic acid begins to degrade, each molecule binds to more water which helps to maintain its volume for about six months.
Restylane and Perlane contain no animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Restylane and Perlane contain trace amounts of gram-positive bacterial proteins and are contraindicated for patients with a history of allergies to such material. No allergy testing is required before use.
Where Can It be Used? Restylane® and Perlane® are FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) How Long Does Restylane Last?
Restylane® and Perlane® are proven to deliver long-lasting results. Studies have shown that Restylane lasts about six months. Perlane lasts at least six months in a majority of patients.* The patented stabilization technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect for those time periods.
How long the aesthetic correction lasts is very individual. Talk with your doctor about the benefits of scheduling a follow-up appointment in about six months.
Juvéderm™, one of the newest hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA, helps to smooth away and fill aging lines or wrinkles, some acne and surgical scars and enhance the lip border, size and shape. Correct use of dermal fillers will give your face a visually lifted and more youthful appearance.
