Dr. Fox believes that less is more when it comes to all cosmetic injections. That holds true to all areas of her practice. Using the lowest possible dose to achieve the desired effect. Whether thats with botanical medicine, nutraceuticals, acupuncture, or cosmetic injectables.
"Botox" is by far the most popular form of cosmetic injection. What is less well known is that Botox is just a brand name. The actual medicine injected is called a neuromodulator. There are 4 different brand names of neuromodulators to choose from: Botox, Dysport, Nucieva, and Xeomin. When injected, they help to relax the muscle being injected so that it stops creating undesired fascial lines and creases.
Dermal fillers have gained huge popularity in the last 5 years. Fillers are great for adding volume and shape to specific areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, chin, jaw line, and temporal fossa. Or can be used to reduce the appears of fine lines in the marionette, nasolabial, and glabellar region. The active ingredient in all dermal fillers is called hyaluronic acid, a substance we naturally produce and use in our bodies to improve elasticity, volume, lubrication, and structure. By nature, it can hold 1000 time its weight in water which is pretty amazing!
