Your age is catching up to you. You can see it every time you look at your reflection in the mirror. You feel like you are twenty years old on the inside, but the outside is telling you another story. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and healthy glow. You can begin to see hollows, skin that sags, and wrinkles. You want to do something about the effects of aging, but surgery is not for you. Combining BOTOX® and dermal fillers could give you the best results, giving you more youthful skin that is sure to make you smile.
How Can BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers Help You?
BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that freezes the muscle beneath the skin in affected areas. When it is injected beneath your wrinkles, the skin relaxes, and the lines are not as noticeable. BOTOX® generally lasts about six months. Combine it with dermal fillers and your results could last as long as a year. Dermal fillers are injected into areas of concern to add volume, smoothing or filling lines in your face. They are often used on the lips and around the mouth to provide fullness and address lines that form, giving the mouth a pinched appearance. Use BOTOX® and dermal fillers in combination for results that last longer and look natural.
What Happens During the Procedure?
One of our clinicians will address your areas of concern, determining where BOTOX® will be most effective and where dermal fillers should be used. Your skin will be cleansed, insuring that an antibacterial agent is used to prepare the surface prior to injection. Your doctor may apply a local anesthetic to minimize pain. Lidocaine is a pain reliever that is often combined with injections to reduce pain as well. After the procedure, you could be provided with a cool compress for any discomfort. You may have redness and mild swelling after your procedure. It only takes about a half hour to an hour of your time, and you can return to your routine.
Are You a Candidate for BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers?
If you have severe allergic reactions, dermal fillers and BOTOX® may produce a reaction. You should discuss your health history with your doctor and any condition that could cause complications. Bleeding disorders, skin problems, and a tendency to scar may indicate a need to search for other options. If you have no underlying concerns, you are in good health, and you want to reclaim your youth, BOTOX® and dermal fillers could be the answer.
