Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox is a popular and highly effective injectable solution used to help reduce the lines and wrinkles that come with aging. Botox is the most commonly referred to brand name among neuromodulators. Dysport and Xeomin are also well-recognized brand names among neuromodulators that help achieve the same results patients seek to achieve with injectables. A minimally invasive, non-surgical solution, Botox has been shown to temporarily smooth out lines and wrinkles on the forehead, neck, and near the mouth for a smoother, more flawless complexion. Botox is also proven for lifting the brow to help you turn back the clock on your skin and fight saggy, tired-looking skin.

In addition to its more common cosmetic benefits, Botox is also used by medical professionals to stop excessive sweat and reduce the incidence of migraine headaches.

What other injectables do you offer and what do they do?

Although Botox is usually the more popular choice at RAOOF MD, both Dysport and Xeomin are available to patients as well. These neuromuscular blocking toxins generate similar actions as Botox. There are numerous advantages to all three types of injectables. Request a consultation with your doctor to find out which one is right for you.

Do you offer dermal fillers?

Yes, in addition to Botox and comparable injectables, Encino area patients are able to take advantage of a range of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are specialized injections directed at smoothing and plumping the facial skin to give patients a natural-looking, youthful appearance. Because the volume of the face declines as you age, the skin looks creased, wrinkled, and thin. Dermal fillers restore the volume of the face and reduce lines and wrinkles. Fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Bellafill, and Radiesse are all offered at RAOOF MD.

What is the difference between injectables and fillers?

Botox and similar injectables are made of a neurotoxin with the goal of softening wrinkles by blocking the nerve action in a given area. Injectables are mostly used near muscles that cause wrinkle formation. Fillers, however, are made a variety of different solutions—some are already found in the body—that are injected into areas with lines and wrinkles to smooth them out.
