Facial fillers are products such hyaluronic acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite. They are used to smooth wrinkles and folds. They can also replace volume loss seen in the aging face and hands, augment lips, and raise depressed scars. A qualified physician can help you determine which facial fillers are right for your needs.
Botox® is a nonsurgical treatment used to treat lines in the face. Botox temporarily relaxes facial muscles that cause wrinkles. The most common areas treated by Botox® include frown lines, crow's-feet, and forehead furrows. Botox® can also treat hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating.
BOTOX® is very effective and results last three to four months. Follow up visits will be necessary as muscle activity returns and lines and wrinkles begin to reappear. BOTOX® works by paralyzing the muscles beneath the skin. Over time, with regular treatments, the wrinkles will be less severe. It is important that anyone considering BOTOX® see a doctor who is trained and licensed in administering the injections. This will ensure not only achieving the desired appearance, but also patient safety.
Injections from Botox® or fillers can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated. Botox® and filler injections are not a permanent solution and follow up treatment may be necessary.
