Botox/dysport can last anywhere from 3-5 months. If you work out more or have a higher metabolism, you may be on the shorter end of 3 months. But, everyone is different in the way they metabolize these products.
A local numbing cream is used, so mild discomfort may be felt. A vibrating distraction device may be used as well as ice during injection if the client at no extra cost. Mild swelling and bruising is very common with filler and should subside within 3-5 days.
Filler lasts anywhere from 9-12+ months. Like botox/dysport, if you work out more or have a higher metabolism it may not last as long. It all depends on each individual client.
Neurotoxins temporarily paralyze the facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and weaken the movement of the muscles targeted.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalize the skin. Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in your body.
Hyaluronic acid binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin's supply of hyaluronic acid, revitalizing and adding volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. Filler is a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent.

Avoid NSAIDS such as ibuprofen, motrin, advil, or aspirin 1 week before treatment to minimize bleeding, bruising, and swelling. Take tylenol after if needed.
