Botox® is a neurotoxin. More specifically, when tiny amounts are injected into certain areas of the face, the muscles stop moving. Since the skin is attached to those muscles, lines and wrinkles decrease and sometimes disappear completely after Botox® treatments. The two FDA approved sites for injection are the glabellar area (i.e. “frown lines”) and the lateral canthal areas (i.e. “smile lines or crow’s feet”). Botox is also used for off-label uses at times, when appropriate. Dr. Richard Tepper will gladly discuss the appropriate uses based on your aesthetic desires.
Restylane® and Juvederm® are examples of soft tissue fillers, and they do just that. These products add volume when injected. There are many products available for use and Dr. Richard Tepper will gladly discuss appropriate fillers based on your cosmetic needs.
