Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
What is the brand you use for Botox?
There are 5 FDA approved brands - Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Xeomin, Jeuveau, Daxxify
Oct 13, 2023
The various brands of Botox are manufactured by different companies but essentially - the active molecule is the same. (Similar to "Ibuprofen" but there are brands such as Motrin, Advil, etc....) Botox/Dysport/Xeomin/Jeuveau all last 3-4 months. Daxxify is reported to last a bit longer - maybe up to 6 months. The variation depends on multiple factors such as concentration, injection volume, anatomy etc... More important than the product - is the injector. (If you get a good haircut - was it...
DLI Botox - will this vertical band in my neck go away?
The vertical band in the neck is separate from the DLI injection.
Sep 19, 2023
The platysmal bands can be treated with Botox - aka "Nefertiti Lift. Watch a video of Dr Yew explaining how it works:
Another useful video to watch is regarding the truth behind Asymmetry. Most experienced injectors do not chase symmetry. Watch this video to see why:
40 years old, sculptra for slight face lift?
Yes to Sculptra. No to chasing symmetry.
Sep 13, 2023
You look great for your age. You have excellent features - with a beautiful smile and wonderful cheeks and lips.
Please watch the supporting video on Sculptra as it's not a filler. It's the most natural injectable in aesthetics.
Also - avoid trying to fix asymmetry. Our human body is asymmetric and that includes the face. Beware any practitioners who claim they can make you symmetrical. Watch the video below that explains that asymmetry is more desirable.
Can Botox and Dysport be done at the same session but in different areas?
Yes - it can be used as they are the same active ingredient.
Aug 30, 2023
We've been regularly using 2 brands on our patients for years. We use Dysport across the areas that need for wider spread and Botox or Jeuveau for areas that need tighter control. Please see the attached link for an explanation of the differences of all the FDA approved brands.
Can masseter botox and scupltra be done for myself at the same time ?
Yes - it's possible to do Botox and Sculptra at the same time. As long as the areas do not overlap.
Aug 9, 2023
Yes - we regularly perform Botox in the masseters to slim the face and then Sculptra along the lower jaw line for a snatched jaw. Based on your photos - I would not recommend Botox for the masseters as it will reduce the width of your face which will not help in creating a snatched jaw line. You already have a slim face and I would recommend Sculptra and/or Fillers along the mandibular edge to create what you are looking for. Barbed Infiniti Threads can also help if needed at the end.
