Botox & Fillers
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment designed to relax muscles and reduce lines and wrinkles on your face. Some wrinkles and lines are caused by overactive muscles. Botox relaxes these muscles, allowing for fewer unwanted expressions.
Is Botox right for me?
If you are on the attack against wrinkles, whether treating existing lines or preventing new ones, Botox is a secret weapon. The injectable is primarily used to treat frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet, but is also used in other areas, including lips, lower face, neck, and even downturned smiles.
What happens on the day of Botox?
The day of your Botox treatment likely won’t be very different from any other day. It will be similar to going to your family doctor to receive a shot. Your Botox provider will make a series of injections in the desired areas.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent. Dermal filler treatments are widely used in medical aesthetics to add volume, plump up and reduce the appearance of lines and folds.
Which areas can be treated?
Dermal filler treatments are used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin. The most common areas treated are:
- Nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and corner of the mouth).
- Marionette lines (from the corner of the mouth downwards).
- Lips (Enhance the shape, definition and volume of lips).
Are there any risks with dermal fillers?
Product related reactions are rare. There are some injection related reactions which may occur after any injection including redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. After lip enhancement, some swelling is likely for a short period.
Treatment duration: 1 hour.
