Botox & Fillers
Unwanted wrinkles and fine lines are a common concern for patients looking for a natural and refreshed look. One cause for these lines is the natural creases caused by the movement of underlying muscles of facial expression; for example, crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead wrinkles. Botox is one of the many neuromodulators now on the market for the treatment of these unwanted wrinkles. It works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that contribute to the wrinkles in the overlying skin. As the muscles aren’t able to move, the wrinkles become less apparent. Each session of Botox typically takes just a few minutes and results will last approximately 3 months. In addition to Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are also effective treatments for improving smile lines and active wrinkles.
Due to the normal aging process, the natural volume in our face decreases over time. As a result, you may start to notice less full cheeks, creases around the nose and lower half of the face, and unwanted lines around the lips. One of the most popular and effective methods for restoring a more youthful face is to restore this volume using injectable fillers. The most commonly used fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a substance already naturally present in the skin, and include products such as Juvederm and Restylane. Results typically last 6-12 months or longer depending on which particular product is chosen and where they are injected.
