The wrinkles are created due to repeated contractions of the muscles while making facial expressions. Botox can prevent the formation of these wrinkles; therefore, many young adults are getting Botox at an early age.
If you are suffering from sagging eyebrow or an eyelid, if you wish to get a browlift without surgery get evaluated to see if Botox is the right choice for you.
Absolutely! The times are changing and so are ALL of our faces! Aging does not discriminate! Male patients are one of the fastest growing groups of consumers for BOTOX. Men tend to require higher doses of BOTOX, however, this isn’t always the case.
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Neurotoxins are minimally invasive injectable compounds that temporarily relax targeted muscles of the face. When one muscle is weakened, the opposing muscle strengthens, in turn, lifting, smoothing and tightening the overall appearance of your face! BOTOX is often used as an umbrella term for neurotoxins. Other neurotoxins on the market are Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuvea.
After a treatment, you will start to notice and feel “the freeze” happening within 2-3 days. BOTOX gradually settles in over the next week. The rule of thumb for BOTOX is that it takes 2 weeks to see full results but many individuals notice improvement before that.
BOTOX usually lasts anywhere between 3-4 months. Your treatment regimen will typically consist of 3-4 annual visits. If you are someone who is very physically active or have a higher intrinsic metabolism, you may require more frequent touch ups.
The risk of bruising is higher in someone who takes blood thinners or has a history of a bleeding disorder. Make sure you inform your injector of all blood thinning medications during your assessment. A little bruising is normal, however, it is minimal and many individuals experience no bruising at all.
Botox is safe but it can cause very rare side effects such as a headache, drooping of an eyebrow or an eyelid, difficulty swallowing and blurry vision.
Injectable - Fillers
While BOTOX blocks signals to the muscles, fillers like Juvéderm, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, and Radiesse are used to add volume and hydration to hollowed areas of the face while promoting the production of collagen. In doing so, they can also reduce and prevent wrinkling while adding a much smoother and more youthful element to your look. Though fillers all share a similar function, each has its own distinct strengths and weaknesses.
Juvéderm is a popular new filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural yet potent hydration filler used to add volume and smoothness to the face. This injectable is generally most effective around the mouth, nose, and forehead.
Voluma XC, also made by Juvéderm, provides a subtle lift that can last up to two years and is used mostly around the mid-face or cheek region.
Radiesse is another long-lasting filler that helps to correct smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Instead of hyaluronic acid like Juvéderm, Radiesse is comprised of tiny calcium-based microspheres that act as robust pillars to restore facial volume and reduce surface lines.
The Microneedling works with the body’s own natural rejuvenation processes producing new collagen and elastin. Produce smoother, more youthful skin. Micro-Needling is used in combination with PRP, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides or Growth Factors to hydrate and re-epithelialize the skin.
