Injectables Q & A

What’s the difference between neurotoxins and fillers?

Neurotoxins are injectable treatments for dynamic wrinkles, the ones that appear due to muscle movement. Neurotoxins generally treat wrinkles in three places:

  • Vertical between-brow lines
  • Horizontal above-brows lines
  • Crow's feet in the eye area

Fillers are injectable treatments for static wrinkles, the ones that develop because of the gradual loss of collagen and elastin over time. Dermal fillers add volume in the following areas:

  • The lips
  • The nasolabial folds, which are the two vertical folds next to the nose and mouth
  • The upper cheeks
  • Marionette lines, the vertical lines on either side of the mouth down to the chin

Dermal filler longevity varies widely based on the type of filler and where it's injected.

What are my options for neurotoxin injectables?

Serenity Medical Spa offers neurotoxin treatment in the form of Dysport injections. Dysport injections can help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look of the rest of your face. 

Treatment takes between 10 and 20-minutes, and results can last for up to 5 months.

What are my options for filler treatment?

Serenity Medical Spa offers a range of fillers to meet all your volume and plumping needs. Options include:

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid fillers contain synthetic hyaluronic acid, just like what your body makes on its own. Options include:

  • Restylane: for facial volume anywhere, lasts around six months
  • Restylane Silk™: for lip lines and subtle volume, lasts around six months
  • Restylane Lyft™: for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, lasts up to 18 months
  • Juvéderm® Voluma XC: for mid-face volume, lasts up to two years

Calcium microspheres

Radiesse® contains calcium-based microspheres that add volume and also trigger your body to make new collagen for ongoing skin support. Radiesse adds volume to the mid-face area, but can't go in your lips. It lasts for around a year.

Poly-L-lactic acid

Sculptra™ has poly-L-lactic acid that takes effect over time. Sculptra can add volume to your middle face, but it isn’t for use in your lips. It lasts for up to two years.
