Botox® and Dysport® injections are one of the most common cosmetic enhancements used today in relation to anti-aging, wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and many other age related facial changes.
Botox® and Dysport® are medicines that relax muscles by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine needed for muscle contraction. It has been used for the past (25) years to treat such medical conditions as cervical dystonia, TMJ, and other neuromuscular disorders.
As you grow older your skin becomes less elastic due to the loss of collagen and reduced vascularization of tissues. Wrinkles (rhytids) occur when certain muscles become more dominant and the skin does not have the ability to be as elastic in response to these muscle contractions. In addition, muscles become constrictive and naturally form creases and rhytids . Dynamic rhytids (not a crease of the skin) can be eliminated or lessened by relaxing the dominant muscle as it competes against either an inferior muscle or in constricting skin elasticity. This is why certain patients of differing ages start to form wrinkles at different times as compared to other individuals.
Because muscles of the face are relatively small, it is necessary to introduce the medicine by injection so that the exact placement and the effect is achieved. By introducing the medicine into the exact muscle group responsible for the wrinkling, various aesthetic enhancements can be obtained in addition to elimination of the rhytids. Wrinkles of the forehead, crows feet, frown lines, and eyebrow shaping is easily achieved. Other specialty injections for gummy smiles, dimpled chin, bunny lines, vertical lip lines, and sad smile can be performed with Botox® and Dysport®.

Wrinkles are a part of the natural aging process but sometimes they make us look older than we actually are. Within the last few years people are starting to live healthier lifestyles to live longer lives but sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to keep our skin from showing our age. The aging process causes the face and hands to lose underlying fat and collagen which then causes our skin to sag and we get wrinkles.
Injectable wrinkle fillers and dermal fillers have become more popular with the instant effect they have addressing skin sagging and wrinkle problems that result from aging, sun damage, skin trauma, scarring, or disease. The injectable wrinkle and dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat facial lines and wrinkles, hollow cheeks and eyes, receding chins, thinning lips, and wrinkles between the eyes and may even be used to hide nose bumps or fill in and plump thinning skin on the hands.
Dermal Fillers can be used to correct problem areas such as laugh lines, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines but there are also ways to use Dermal Fillers to enhance certain features. The most popular being the cheekbones, chins, jaw lines and eyebrows. Treatment can take as short a time as 30 minutes depending on the number of injection sites and the injectables used. These injections are virtually painless and the results can be seen almost immediately.
There are numerous Dermal Fillers available to choose from at Lose It Right including Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Radiesse and more. The effects of Dermal Fillers can last from 3-18 months depending on which filler is used and in which location it is injected. In some cases the Dermal Fillers will stimulate your skin to make its own collagen which means you may have improvement that lasts for years after the Dermal Filler has dissolved.
We only use fillers that are made to be biocompatible with human skin which lessens the chance for an allergic reaction and none of our fillers are made using animal products.
