Botox, Dysport & Fillers
Dysport, a botulism toxin, is similar to botox, differing by one protein. It is used for the treatment of frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the corners of the eyes. Juvederm, Restaylne, Purlane, and ArteFill are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that already exists in the human body. They are used to provide volume to the skin, and are injected into the treatment area. Some of these fillers come in different concentrations which can be used for fine lines and deep wrinkles alike, and are uniquely able to work on different areas of the face including nasal-labial folds, around the eyes, cheeks and lips. These fillers deliver long-lasting results for six months to five years depending on the product injected. We offer Botox, Dysport and Juvederm, Restalyne, Purlane, ArteFill in our Darien, CT medical day spa location.
Prior to these treatments, we recommend avoiding the use of aspirin, anti-inflamatory medications, St. John’s wort and high doses of vitamin E.
To aid in healing we recommend taking Arnica Montana 5 pellets, 3 times a day, five days prior to injections.
