Our Botox and Filler Treatment
Botox and Fillers For Smooth Perfected Complexion
The purpose of botox injections is to relax the muscles in your face. The full effects of the procedure take a couple of days to appear as your muscles weaken, which will result in a reduction of lines and wrinkles in the face, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
Botox is not permanent and the effects of the procedure typically last between 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers, otherwise known as face and lip fillers, are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid. The purpose of dermal fillers is to fill lines, reduce wrinkles and add volume to areas such as the cheek, jaw and lips.
Dermal fillers are not permanent and the effects of the procedure typically last between 6-18 months. However, how long dermal fillers last is dependent upon a number of factors such as the type of filler used, how your body reacts to the filler and where it is injected.
Benefits and Aftercare
Botox only works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. These are called dynamic wrinkles and often called “expression lines”. The most common dynamic wrinkles that botox can treat are lines on the upper face, such as the “11” between the brows, horizontal lines in the forehead and something called crow’s feet, which is around the eyes.
Do not consume alcohol for 24hours after the procedure. Do not do any aerobic exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. Do not massage the areas treated. Do not have any facial massages or put any excessive pressure on the specific areas treated for 1 week. Try to exercise the muscles treated, so keep smiling and frowning.
