Botox (also known asVistabel outside the U.S. and the U.K.)is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Common injection sites include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin. Botox can also be used for a wide variety of other conditions, including migraines, excessive sweating, and psoriasis.
Injectable fillers, like Juvederm or Restylane, can be used for everything from lip augmentation to wrinkle treatment to scar removal. There are manyto choose from, and the RealSelf community has tried them all.Injectable fillers may be used to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, thin lips, acne scars, andundereye areas.
Laser resurfacing uses an intense light beam to treat several skin issues, from acne scars to age spots. There are two categories of lasers: Ablative, which removes thin layers of skin and is more invasive, and nonablative, less invasive lasers that tighten skin and stimulate collagen.
4 out of 5 stars Sculptra
I went to the Sculptra site http://www.sculptraaesthetic.com/consumer/physician-search.aspx and picked a doctor who is a certified Sculptra trainer of other physicians. Dr. Schell is a Board Certified Cosmetic Dermatologist who uses Sculptra on her own face, as it is her favorite filler, and who undoubtedly performs the one of the highest numbers of Sculptra procedures in the area; Knowing this also eased my mind a bit.

Dr. S looks great. She was generous with her time explain what she would recommend that I do and why. Dermatology procedures are expensive, but she has the expertise that I want. I had seen 3 other dermatologists before finding Dr. S. Not all procedures are the same - who you choose as a doctor can make an important difference in your outcome.
