Botox and fillers

Wrinkles happen! As we age, the increase in muscle tone along with a decrease in collagen result in wrinkles. The most popular way to fix this problem is by undergoing procedures like Botox and dermal filler injections to rejuvenate the face. Injections of Botox basically work to paralyze the facial muscles and decrease their muscle tone thus temporarily smoothing wrinkles.

The procedure lasts between 15 to 30 minutes depending on the number of injection sites. The injection is made with a fine needle into the specific muscle with minor discomfort and no down time. Botox usually lasts between 3 to 6 months and full results are achieved between 7 to 14 days after injection. Botox is usually the primary step in a more youthful appearance, and deeper wrinkles may also need to be filled with dermal filler.

Our dermal filler of choice is Juvederm, this is a hyaluronic acid base and very similar to the substances found in your dermis or lowest layer of the of skin.

The body naturally produces hyaluronic acid that helps to detain water at the point where the gel is injected into the skin.

The gel acts as a soft buffer that keeps that skin lifted, thus, reducing the wrinkle, while the acid keeps the gel from evaporating out of the skin. Juvederm is one of the most popular fillers used in the U.S. and results are often noticeable immediately after procedure. Its most commonly used to fill stubborn wrinkles, augment or plump lips, nose, jaw and other parts of the face.The dermal filler procedure takes anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the area and results can last 6 months to 1 year.
