Botox & Injectable
Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic products injected into the skin by a specialist. They are non-surgical and are minimally invasive. Biotin-based Botox relaxes and freezes, which means Botox can help reduce the appearance of face creases and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are made up of chemicals that provide volume to thinning regions. This thinning usually occurs in the cheeks, lips, and mouth. If you wish to raise your cheekbones and plump up your lips, Botox® and fillers are the answer. Avante Laser & MediSpa provides Botox and a wide range of injectable dermal fillers to meet all of your cosmetic demands.
If you have any questions about our wide range of injectables, call one of our 2 locations in Texas located in the cities of Houston and The Woodlands, or schedule a consultation online.
Botox & Fillers Q & A
How do Botox® and Dysport® work?
Botox and Dysport are both made from purified forms of botulinum toxin. They block nerve signals that contract muscles. When they’re injected into muscles, the muscles relax, which eliminates or significantly diminishes wrinkles.
Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin type A, which works by blocking the release of certain chemicals that cause muscle contraction. This helps to relax facial muscles and smooth out wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
It's often used to help reduce the appearance of crow's feet, forehead creases, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
For those striving to achieve a more rejuvenated, youthful look without undergoing costly and invasive procedures, Botox may be the ideal option. Our facilities offering expertly administered Botox near you can safely utilize injectable botulinum toxin type A solution into facial muscles to reduce wrinkles while creating long-lasting results!
Dysport is another type of botulinum toxin A that works similarly to Botox. It also helps relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Dysport is often used for the same areas as Botox, like crow's feet and forehead creases. Botox and Dysport are safe and effective treatments for wrinkles.
What types of wrinkles are treated with Botox® and Dysport®?
These injectables treat wrinkles caused by the repetitive use of muscles, called dynamic wrinkles, these include:
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
- Frown lines (around the mouth)
- Forehead furrows
- Bunny lines (on the upper nose)
What are Juvéderm® fillers?
Juvéderm is a family of injectable fillers that contain hyaluronic acid mixed in a smooth gel. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in your skin, where it hydrates and adds volume.
