Botox and dermal fillers are two different cosmetic injectables that are often mistaken for each other. While these two treatments serve different purposes, the results they provide often compliment one another, and both are available to patients at Revive Wellness.
Botox is an aesthetic treatment that uses botulinum toxin type A to relax facial muscles associated with smile, laugh, and frown lines. It’s a simple cosmetic treatment that produces dramatic, younger-looking results without any downtime.
Revive Wellness also offers dermal fillers, which contain natural substances that add volume to sunken areas of your face or body.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen—the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue—for results that can last up to two years
The main benefits you can expect when choosing Botox at Revive Wellness include:
Botox injections also help reduce migraines, excessive sweating, lazy eye, and eye twitching.
Dermal fillers plump your lips or restore lost skin volume to improve facial contours and make your skin appear healthier and younger. Fillers can also stimulate collagen and elastin production.
What is the benefits of Sculptra?
As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.
Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.1,2,4
As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production.1,2,4
Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.3
Sculptra may stimulate collagen growth which helps to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds over time.
To find out if you’re a candidate for Botox, dermal fillers, or both, the experts at Revive Wellness ask about your medical history and desired outcome. They evaluate your face or body in areas that concern you before tailoring your treatment plan.
Before Botox injections, your expert at Revive Wellness numbs the treatment area to enhance comfortability. While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider injects Botox, fillers, or more than one type of injection into targeted areas. The procedure takes just a minute or two for each injection, making Botox and fillers excellent lunchtime treatments.
After Botox or dermal filler injections, there’s no downtime, and you can resume normal activities immediately. Expect some temporary tenderness, swelling, or redness at the injection sites, and apply ice to the treatment area to reduce swelling if you’d like to.
While dermal fillers often take effect immediately, it could take a day or two to notice the effects of Botox. Botox usually lasts for several months before you need repeat injections to achieve long-lasting results. Dermal fillers may last 6-24 months or longer.
