Botox & Restylane

WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

WHAT IS RESTYLANE?

Restylane® is a sterile gel consisting of stabilized hyaluronic acid; Medicis, the manufacturer, states that it is biodegradable, and safely and completely metabolized by the body.   Restylane® injections are given to correct facial wrinkles and/or for lip augmentation.  Restylane® has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for correction of facial wrinkles in the nasolabial area (nose-lips) and the fold between the cheek and the nose/upper lip (“on-label” use).
