Injectables & Fillers

Good-Bye Wrinkles & Frown Lines!

Botox and Dysport ainjections are used to treat and prevent wrinkles.  Botox injections block certain chemical signals from the nerves that cause muscles to contract.  These injections relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other facial wrinkles.  Dysport also blocks chemical signals from the nerves, but it is different from Botox in that it is more dilute and spreads quickly.  This is why it is used more commonly in larger surface areas and Botox works great in small areas.

Sé Bello uses the dermal fillers Restylane and Juvéderm.  Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, which helps the skin retain moisture and softness.  Both Juvéderm and Restylane are modified forms of hyaluronic acid.  Although fillers are often used in the lips, they are also used in other areas such as cheeks, chins, temples, and jowls to give a fuller, more youthful appearance.
