Botox® and Fillers in Ottawa
Say Goodbye to Frustrating Wrinkles with Injectable Treatments and Dermal Fillers
Wrinkles on our face are perhaps the most apparent sign of aging. Thankfully, though, there are plenty of options to help reduce these all-too-common aging symptoms!
Botox®, Restylane®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, Juvederm®… What’s the Difference?
Neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and other injectables… at the end of the day, they all serve the same purpose: restoring your youthful glow and help you look as good as you feel. How they achieve these amazing anti-aging results is where they differ!
Botox® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles. The purified protein complex within the formula actively works against the contraction of targeted muscles, helping them relax and easing the tension that causes wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic is most commonly used to target dynamic wrinkles, those that form from repeated movements and muscle use.
Coke® or Pepsi®? At the end of the day, it’s about what you prefer. Dysport® is another injectable that relaxes targeted muscles, and uses botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox® Cosmetic. Dysport® can achieve the same results, often in less time, and results tend to last for a longer period of time. We’re happy to be one of the first clinics in Ottawa to offer Dysport® injections!
Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm® are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) and are injected beneath the skin. Different products offer different viscosities that are used depending on the treatment location. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that provides and supports volume and tone. This acid is hydrophilic, meaning it binds to water content and can thus provide long-lasting results. While wrinkle reducers like Botox® and Dysport® target muscles and treat the underlying cause of wrinkles, dermal fillers restore volume and treat wrinkles directly.
