What is botox injection used for?


Botox injections are primarily to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox injections used a chemical called onobotulinumtoxinA which help to temporarily prevent muscles from moving.

The most common reason patients get Botox injections is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox helps to relax the muscles and offers a softer and smoother appearance of the skin.

Botox can be used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

How long do botox injections last?


Neurotoxins or Botox Injections generally take three to five days to take effect, however, it is common to not see your full and final results until seven to ten days after treatment. It takes a bit of time because the toxin in the injection can take time to block off the nerve impulses to the muscles which help to smooth out your skin.

Botox injections do not last forever and will need touch-up appointments every few months to keep the smooth results you become accustomed to after your first appointment. Botox injections usually last around four to six months sometimes shorter depending on each individual. It is common for first-time Botox injection clients to notice that their Botox injections do not last as long initially, but last longer after the second treatment. Each client has a different and unique experience when it comes to Botox, as results may vary.

What are filler injections?


A filler injection is a soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in any facial wrinkles and provide facial volume as well as augment facial features which means restoring a smoother appearance.

Filler injections are temporary as the product is absorbed by the body. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is present in our skin and cartilage.

Some clients may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect dermal fillers offer, as each client is different. The dermal filler effects should last about six months or longer. Successful results depend on the health of the client’s skin.

What do fillers do to your face?


Facial fillers are a synthetic or natural occurring substance that is injected into fine lines, folds and tissues of the face to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and restore the volume to your face that can decrease with age.

These facial fillers are also called dermal fillers, wrinkle fillers, soft-tissue fillers or injectables. They are used to erase smile lines, plump up cheeks and lips, and correct acne scars on the face.

Most dermal fillers are absorbable into the body, which is why they offer such temporary results that may last from a couple of months to a couple of years depending on the product injected and the person.
