Probably the fastest growing area in facial plastic surgery is that of the injectables or that of the low down time procedures. This is something where you come to the office, have it injected and see an immediate result and head back to your daily life activities. This consists of two separate categories of injectables. One is Botox and Dysport and other is a filler such as Restylane, Sculptra, ArteFill, or Radiesse. What is the difference between the two? Well really there are two classes. Botox and Dysport relax the muscle that causes the wrinkle. Restylane, Sculptra or Radiesse fill the wrinkle from behind. They both do separate things but sometimes when they are used in conjunction with each other they actually achieve a much nicer result.
