a little injectables refresher

if you frequent HOP, we’re sure you’re well-versed on the benefits of botox & filler but for those of you new to the game, here’s a little refresher…
dermal filler (juvederm & restylane) and neurotoxins (botox & dysport) are used for the prevention and treatment of facial aging. however, they’re very different when it comes to how they work and what areas they treat. let’s break it down…
botox involves relaxing the muscles of a targeted area to minimize the appearance of lines & wrinkles caused by facial expressions. *it only takes a few minutes and no numbing is required* keep in mind, it can take anywhere from 4-7 days to take full effect, so be patient for your results
filler is an injectable solution that fills the soft tissue under the skin. rather than affecting your facial muscles, fillers are designed to plump & add volume *numbing is done prior to treatment and the results are immediate*
