What to Expect during a BOTOX® or Xeomin treatment:
In a single 10 minute treatment, with tiny little injections, nerves impulses are blocked to relax muscles. As muscle relax, the dynamic wrinkle overlying the muscle is smoothed away. Since the treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the line at the injection site, it has no effect on other elements of facial expression.
Where did my wrinkles and folds come from?
As we age, our skin loses volume and elasticity. This can occur on cheeks, around the eyes, on the forehead and in the mouth area.
The aging process occurs as our skin becomes depleted of natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which provide structure and volume. This, combined with environmental factors such as a lifetime of exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.
Injectable Fillers for Wrinkles, Folds, Lip Enhancement
Fillers add volume to your skin and lips with natural looking results and one can expect to receive instant, and long lasting enhancements.
How fillers such as Juvederm™, Radiuses, Belotero , smooth out wrinkles?
Fillers comes as a smooth injectable gel and is placed below the skin surface to literally “fill and/or plump” static facial wrinkles and folds that one can see when “at rest”. For wrinkles that are dynamic, such as when you frown or squint, these are immobilized with BOTOX®
Fillers for Lip Rejuvenation and Enhancement
Fillers can be used for either lip enhancement or rejuvenation. They can be used to ADD volume to your lips, improve the border definition of the upper and/or lower lipa dn to create a stronger Cupid’s Bow. Additionally, they can also be used to restore or add volume creating younger looking lips.
Will I notice the difference right away?
Yes, the aesthetic results are immediate. As the treatment is less invasive than surgery, you will be able to continue with your daily activities straight after treatment.
Will my lip injections look natural?
Combined with other collagen and elastin stimulating treatments such as Exilis™ or Fraxel™, you can expect an end result that is natural looking!
For rejuvenation the vertical lines, also known as smokers’ lines, around your lips may also be treated. This results in a more youthful appearance and will also help prevent lipstick from bleeding.
