If you’re looking for a way to refresh your face and erase the evidence of aging and stress, Botox may be the solution for you. Different from facial fillers, Botox relaxes tense muscles that cause wrinkles and defined expression lines. Botox safely and effectively diminishes wrinkles and lines without leaving you “frozen-faced.”
Patients typically seek Botox to eliminate the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, neck bands, lines around the corners of the mouth, and under eye wrinkles.
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the lips and face. Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging or for anyone looking for a younger look.
Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Sometimes, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the area.
After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into either the facial line or lips. Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling, but no firm pressure should be put on the treatment area.
You should be able to notice a difference immediately.
