Starting with your initial visit, Dr. Katz will take the time to talk with you about your previous dental experiences and about your expectations for your future dental care.

Botox, Restilyne

Botox VS Restilyne

They are the top two cosmetic injectables on the market, but BOTOX® and Restylane® achieve their goals through very different methods. For this reason, a comparison of the two procedures is more like comparing apples to oranges than apples to apples.

First and foremost, unlike Restylane®, BOTOX® is NOT a dermal filler. Instead, BOTOX® injections contain a purified protein derived from a toxin called bacterium clostridium botulinum. This substance is FDA approved as a treatment for facial wrinkles, and works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the chemical responsible for transmitting motion signals to the muscles. Facial muscles that are injected with BOTOX® will weaken and contract less, smoothing out the fine lines that such muscle contractions usually create. Within a week after your BOTOX® treatment, you'll notice a remarkable decrease in the appearance of laugh lines, frown lines, and crow's feet, and these results can persist for up to six months or even longer. BOTOX® can also help treat migraine headaches and reduce the symptoms of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Restylane®, meanwhile, is the world's top dermal filler and a legitimate alternative to BOTOX® treatments. Like BOTOX®, Restylane® involves a series of tiny facial injections, but rather than deactivating muscles, Restylane® actually uses a natural gel called hyaluronic acid to level out wrinkles and fill depressions. It can also be used for lip augmentation. Restylane® is FDA approved, uses no animal products, and is particularly safe thanks to its use of hyaluronic acid-- a substance which occurs naturally in the human body (similar dermal fillers like Juvederm, Hylaform, and Perlane also use hyaluronic acid). By re-establishing connective tissues, Restylane® effectively increases the volume of the skin, dramatically reducing everything from forehead wrinkles to smile lines and dark under eye circles. Restylane® results can last as long as a year or more. We can schedule you a free consultation.
