Botox & Fillers Treatment

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein. Botox smoothes out lines by preventing the muscles from contracting into a wrinkle.

How is the procedure done?

A few drops of Boto Botox are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle, blocking the nerve impulses that cause the contractions. As the stimulation to the muscle weakens, the lines gradually soften, giving you a more refreshed, relaxed, highly natural-looking appearance. The procedure is so quick and simple that clients often have it done during their lunch hour.

How long does Botox last?

The actual treatment only takes only a few minutes and the Botox takes effect in three to four days, while maximum results are achieved in 7 to 10 days. Gradually over three to six months, the Botox effect will fade, and the muscle action will return. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired result.

Are there any side effects?
Botox is very safe, long before it was approved for cosmetic use Botox had established 10 years of safety data for the treatment of ophthalmic disorders. It has also been approved for the treatment of a number of debilitating conditions such as adult spasticity, cervical dystonia, migraine headaches and juvenile cerebral palsy. It is also effective in the treatment of hyperhidrosis.

Botox for Lines & Creases

When we frown, blink or squint, we gather tissue into a fold which can cause a chronic crease in our skin. This results in crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines. Botox blocks nerve impulses to muscles, causing relaxation. Because certain muscles are used when twitching or frowning, injecting these muscles with minute doses of BOTOX stops the action. Once a muscle action has been relaxed, existing creases fade and further ones are prevented. This treatment also shows remarkable results in brow elevation. It can widen the eye area and give you an open, refreshed appearance. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, the anesthetic ointment may be used to numb the discomfort of a Botox treatment. The procedure takes minutes to perform and the effect usually takes just days to become apparent. To prevent lines from reappearing, a simple touch-up treatment two to three times a year is recommended.

Botox for Facial Contouring

Most women consider a square jaw to be rather severe and masculine. Chewing on foods such as dried squid or gum or teeth grinding can result in overdeveloped muscles in the jawline. This is known as Masseter Hypertrophy or more commonly, square jaw. Botox is a highly successful treatment that can beautifully contour the lower face and create a slim, feminine jaw.

Facial Fillers Treatment

What Are Facial Fillers?

Facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. A qualified dental or medical professional can help you determine which facial injections and what injectable fillers treatments are right for you. Facial fillers will volumize creases and folds in the face in areas that have lost fat and collagen as we age. Hyaluronic acid is the natural filler substance in your body. The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic marionette lines, a deeper mentalis fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm® are then injected extraorally right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face. Dermal fillers can be used for high lip line cases, asymmetrical lips around the mouth, lip augmentation, and completing cosmetic dentistry cases by creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around the teeth.

Length of a Dermal Filler Injections and Side Effects!

The average length of filler injections is about 10 to 20 minutes per session, depending on the individual and the amount of areas being treated. Some of the most common side effects include: allergic reaction, bruising at injection site, numbness, and temporary redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, or discoloration. Dermal filler injections require very minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to work and their normal activities directly following treatment. Yet for the first 24 hours, individuals may be instructed to refrain from strenuous activities and excessive sun or heat exposure.

Results of Injectable Fillers?

In general, the results from most injectable fillers are temporary; commonly lasting from a few months to about a year. This depends on the type of facial fillers or filler injections used. For optimal results, additional treatment sessions are encouraged. A facial filler or injectable fillers treatment entails a series of tiny injections under the skin’s surface – at the subdermal-dermal levels. The amount administered depends on the depth and size of the skin defect or wrinkle. With the evolution of facial fillers and injectable filler it would be great resource to add to your dental or medical practice.
