We can demystify fillers and Botox®.

Botox, Revive Medical Spa, Fayetteville, Arkansas

The road to eternal youth is littered with products and services that all claim to turn back the hands of time on your face. Although many are without merit, dermal fillers and Botox reign supreme as effective, minimally invasive tools that deliver appreciable results.

At Revive Medical Spa, we offer a host of cosmetic services to our patients in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that revitalize, refresh, and otherwise breathe new life into aging skin. For our clients who want to avoid surgical solutions, cosmetic injectables, such as dermal fillers and Botox, offer the next best option.

In the following, we demystify fillers and Botox.

V is for victory against aging.

As the effects of aging begin to take hold on your face, they, quite literally, turn everything upside down. When you were younger, your face had more of a V shape, from the point of your chin on up through your cheeks to the corners of your eyes. Your skin followed this V formation, upheld by the structural proteins in your skin — collagen and elastin.

As you age, your collagen production naturally begins to wane, allowing the wear-and-tear over the years to leave a more noticeable mark. Without the tone and elasticity your collagen and elastin provided, the V in your face begins to turn upside down as your skin succumbs to gravity and sags. From the corners of your eyes, down through your cheeks, and around your jowls, the trajectory of your skin is no longer headed in the right direction.

And that’s where Botox and dermal fillers can help.

Two halves of a whole

Botox and dermal fillers approach aging skin from two different angles. Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that are responsible for the deep lines and wrinkles around your forehead, brow, and eyes. Every time you smile, squint, or frown, muscles contract and, over time, they begin to etch lines into your skin. By taking these muscles out of the equation, your skin no longer follows your muscles into a contraction, creating a smooth surface instead.

Moving down to the lower half of your face, we use dermal fillers to plump up and add volume to areas where sagging skin has left deep lines and hollowed-out areas. With dermal fillers, we can restore volume to your cheeks, fill in the deep parentheses lines around your mouth (your nasolabial folds), plump up thinning lips, and reduce vertical lines around your mouth.

Together, these injectables work on both the upper and lower halves of your face, resulting in a more youthful whole.

The benefits of injectables

The main reasons why our clients turn to cosmetic injectables are numerous. To start, results are almost immediate with dermal fillers and only days for Botox. Second, these injectables deliver a powerful anti-aging punch without the need for surgery. Lastly, these small injections provide results that last from 4-24 months, depending upon the product. And when the results begin to wear off, you simply return for a follow-up treatment.

The options

We offer many different kinds of cosmetic injectables, including the following brand names:
