Botox Cosmetic® is made of botulinum toxin type A, which is used to reduce muscle contractions. The muscles in which Botox Cosmetic is administered experience the inability to tighten as they once did, which in turn reduces the lines that form in these specific areas. Botox Cosmetic is injected into areas such as around the eyes and the forehead to smooth lines and improve the overall texture of the skin.
Botox Cosmetic works differently from dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm Ultra XC. Botox Cosmetic works by addressing the underlying muscle, while dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and are injected to add volume directly to the lines, wrinkles, and folds of the face. However, the two can be used together for amazing results. Botox Cosmetic can be used on the upper third of the face to diminish lines created by facial expressions, while fillers can be used to address fine lines and wrinkles that appear elsewhere, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. This combination therapy provides patients with a beautiful, amazing results for a full “liquid face lift.”
