Botox and Fillers
Cosmetic injectables are becoming a popular addition to the beauty routine for both women and men. In as little as 30 minutes, injectable fillers and relaxers can:
- -Relax muscles that cause creases and lines
- -Fill in wrinkles, scars and imperfections
- -Plump cheeks and lips that have lost their fullness
- -Restore the rested, energetic look of your youth
With injectables, you can enhance your natural looks for a fraction of what a traditional face lift costs, with minimal discomfort and no surgery or downtime.
There are two categories of facial wrinkles, static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are visible when your face is at rest. Static wrinkles occur during the aging process because of the loss of elastic tissue. Dynamic wrinkles appear temporarily when a muscle contracts during facial expression, like the forehead, between the eyes, or around the eyes. By reversing the dynamic wrinkles with products such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines and laugh lines , Botox and Dysport reverses the visible signs of aging. Depending on the individual, the results can be visualized within 5-10 days after treatment, it peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-4 months.
Static wrinkles are better treated with dermal fillers. Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane are dermal fillers and long-lasting gels that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lift and add volume and help diminsh fine lines. Made of a substance called hyaluronic acid simply supplements the body’s age-depleted hyaluronic acid to raise the skin and ‘fill in’ the particular wrinkle being treated such as with nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lip and cheek definition. Most patients have results lasting up to 1 year as the filler is gradually absorbed into the body.
