Botox, Dysport, Fillers and NovaThreads Q & A

Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics

What causes wrinkles and fine lines?

Facial lines and wrinkles are part of the natural aging process. As you get older, collagen and elastin in your skin begin to break down. These are proteins that give your skin its shape and firmness.

Other factors can contribute to lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Repetitive muscle movements
  • Sun damage
  • Smoking
  • Acne


Wrinkles and fine lines become deeper over time; they may eventually leave your face with an unintended, negative expression.

What are the different types of injectable wrinkle treatments?

Various injectable options reduce the appearance of wrinkles using different approaches. Some of the options available at Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics include:

BOTOX and Dysport

These injections are both designed to relax your facial muscles. Botox and Dysport are similar in longevity and effects, but like all medications, can differ from patient to patient. Neither medication will prevent you from making natural expressions or create a “frozen look.”

NovaThreads

NovaThreads are dissolvable sutures composed of polydioxanone (PDO) that are inserted under the skin using a fine needle or cannula. A “threadlift” with NovaThreads lifts your skin around the eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, and neck to reduce skin sag and smooth out wrinkles and lines.

Dermal Fillers

Juvéderm®, Juvéderm Voluma, and Restylane products are Hyaluronic Acid, while Radiesse is Calcium Hydroxylapatite; all formulated to increase volume in the areas where they are injected, and to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines for ageless-looking skin.

How long will my results last?

This depends on which treatment you choose, and the individual characteristics of your skin.

The following are general estimates for the different treatment options:

  • BOTOX: 3-6 months
  • Dysport: 3-6 months
  • NovaThreads: depends on the area and amount of threads used, anywhere from 3-18 months
  • Dermal fillers: depending on the product, 3-18 months

What are the risks of injections for wrinkles and lines?

Each treatment option is FDA-approved and considered to be low risk; however, there is some mild risk associated with any kind of injection. The knowledgeable team at Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics will go over all benefits, risks, and possible side effects with you before your treatment, so you can make an informed decision as to which approach will be best for your unique needs and treatment goals.
