WRINKLE RELAXERS AND FILLERS
Filler can directly treat wrinkles or add volume to lips, cheeks or lower face. Botox and Dysport relax the muscles that cause unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Since its FDA approval in 2002, consumers have been using botulinum toxin A to relax facial muscles that cause unwanted wrinkles in the upper face. The most commonly treated areas are frown lines between the brows (the 11's), crow's-feet around the eyes, and dynamic forehead wrinkles. Now with three formulations available on the market (Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin), these wrinkle relaxers are a growing trend for women and men of all ages. These injections are considered the top minimally invasive aesthetic treatment, with millions of procedures performed each year. Botox is the first released and most widely studied of the three formulations, with more than 417 peer-reviewed studies in scientific and medical journals.
It is important for our patients to know the relaxers work by targeting the underlying cause of the wrinkles...repeated muscle contractions. The actual injection process typically takes 10-15 minutes. Results typically last up to 4 months, and may vary from person to person. It will take 24-48 hours after injection to start seeing effects, with full benefit in 1-2 weeks.
To treat the lower face, dermal fillers are used to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and to add volume in the cheeks, lips or jawline creating a "mini face lift". Results can last from 9 months to more than 2 years depending on the type of filler and location of treatment. It is important to choose the right filler, with the right injection technique, to achieve the desired outcome. This is why MOBO only uses highly trained and experienced providers for these services, and stocks several types of filler.
Patients should know that some fillers cause slight swelling, with recovery time of 3 days up to 2 weeks. Depending on the target site, it may take 1-2 vials of filler per area to achieve desired results.
