Facial Fillers Botox San Antonio Treatment Options

Facial Fillers Botox San Antonio treatment options include exciting new treatments for facial aging and rejuvenation. The latest treatments in facial wrinkle treatments in San Antonio include using BOTOX in combination with dermal fillers to improve facial aesthetics.  Dermal fillers will stay longer in the face when placed with Botox. This new facial treatment corrects wrinkles and improves volume for the face. Facial Fillers and  Botox San Antonio can be used to improve facial paralysis patients with asymmetry and poor facial function. Botulinum neurotoxin including Botox A, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA approved to treat wrinkles in the forehead and crow’s feet. Botox selectively weakens facial muscles for cosmetic and functional purposes.
In addition, chemodernervation has recently been found to extend the life of hyaluronic fillers like restylane, restylane silk, perlane lyft, juvederm and voluma in patients undergoing both procedures.
“Chemodenervation” using botulinum neurotoxin can prolong the life of the HA fillers by reducing muscle activity in the treated area, according to early evidence in the January issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®.

How long does Botox last?

Botulinum neurotoxin lasts 3 – 4 months in the average cosmetic patient. Botox can be placed in the forehead, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, bunny lines of the nose, and for a pebbly chin.

What’s the difference between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all considered botulinum neurotoxin-A (BoNT-A). They work by the same action; to reduce muscle activity in the treated area.

How can I improve the longevity of facial fillers?

Early breakdown of HA fillers occurs in areas of the face with the most contraction or movement such as the lips and melolabial folds. Longevity is affected not only by the properties of the HA fillers, but also by contraction of neighboring muscles. To reduce the effects of early degradation of dermal fillers, Botox can be placed at that same time.

New research shows that at 3 months after placement of Botox, there is decreased loss of hyaluronic acid facial fillers by 42%. CT scans confirm that the facial fillers was 50% greater on the side of chemodernvation. Dr. Jose Barrera, MD offers longer lasting facial fillers when combined with neurotoxins such as Botox A, Dysport, and Xeomin.
