There are many different types of injectable products out there. It can be a bit overwhelming. Here at Alazzo Med Spa don’t create more wrinkles worrying about what product is right for you. Our experienced staff will guide you in choosing the right filler, neuromodulators or combination that will give you a youthfulness that is uniquely yours.
Q: What is Botox™ or Xeomin™ and how do they work?
A: Both products are Botulinum toxins separated by a few protein molecules. When you squint or frown, muscles contract causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent lines. By injecting Botox™ or Xeomin™ into the muscles in small doses it will relax the muscle that causes those lines to form.
Q: What are “fillers” and how do they work?
A: Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loss of facial volume. There are two types of fillers, the first is a calcium based microspheres that suspend in gel that stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. The gel is absorbed by the body leaving your own natural collagen. Radiesse is commonly known filler in this category. The other type of filler is a hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural product already found in the body. Juvederm and Belotero are examples of a HA filler. Pulling fluid from the body this natural filler is used superficially to fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
