Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. It is FDA–approved and is an effective treatment for wrinkles and lines related to expression such as lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. This procedure is performed in our office, and only takes a few minutes. Smoothing of the wrinkles is usually visible 3-5 days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection. Once the Botox begins to take effect, your facial muscles will appear relaxed and wrinkle-free, leaving you with a much more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The treated muscles gradually regain function, and generally return to their former appearance three to four months after treatment. Muscles can be treated repeatedly to maintain the smoothed appearance.
DIMINISHES LINES AND RESTORES VOLUME
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one syringe to achieve desired results. Successful results depend on health of the skin, skill of the health care provider and the type of filler used. The effects lasts for 6-18 months depending on the type of filler used, how you take care of your skin, and how your face continues to age. There really isn’t a best dermal filler; which filler substance is considered “best” or “preferred” for you depends on your facial needs, and amount of downtime desired. Our professional injectors will assess your skin and go over all the options available to you and help you decide which filler will best suite your needs.
