Botox & Filler Treatments
Botox treatments have become famous the world over due to their quick effectiveness in combatting wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
Each time you squint, frown, or use other facial expressions, your facial muscles move and contract and years of these movements combine with lifestyle and environmental factors to create frown lines and wrinkles. Your brain sends messages to your muscles telling them to move, and contract.
Botox injections will disrupt this muscle contraction process, meaning that your facial muscles will not crease and wrinkle the skin. With this reaction disrupted, further forehead wrinkles and fine lines will be reduced.
Botox face treatments will not halt the aging process of your skin but can help to reduce the signs of aging caused by the movement and contraction of certain groups of muscles. Botox can last anything from 3 months to 6 months depending on your lifestyle.
Here are some of the wrinkles and aging signs which can be effectively treated with Botox:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines, frown lines, and wrinkles.
- Treat crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eye area.
- Reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
- Treat and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
- Reduction of bunny lines around the nose.
And our experienced and qualified Botox Doctor will provide you with the information you need about treatment, side effects, and the best cosmetic treatment for you.
As you age, the collagen levels in your body are reduced. This causes looseness and laxity in your skin as it begins to lose its elasticity and begins to sag and wrinkle.
Injectable filler treatments will add soft tissue filler to your skin at different depths and in different volumes to provide volume, fill in wrinkles, and augment your features. These fillers will last anything between 18 months and 2 years with a temporary boost that will reduce the signs of aging and smooth your facial features.
The types of problems that can be helped by dermal fillers include:
- Increase the volume of sagging skin.
- Improve facial symmetry.
- Increase plumpness in your lips and cheeks.
- Smooth out the wrinkles, lines, and creases on your face.
Our experienced Doctor will provide you with the best advice about the best types of filler for your face and where you want to add volume to your skin. For more information about the types of dermal fillers available and what will be the best fit for you.
