Wrinkles appear on the face through years of movement in the muscles beneath them. With all the contracting that occurs on a regular basis, creases eventually form on the skin. These types of wrinkles are ideally treated with Botox, which targets the muscles below the treatment area. After precise Botox injections, the muscles gradually reach an optimal state of relaxation within ten days. Over the course of a few weeks, a significant reduction in wrinkles is seen, but no reduction in the natural ability to convey emotions is caused. Botox is often used on the furrows that form between the eyebrows, as well as on the crow’s feet.Dermal fillers for skin plumping
Wrinkles on the face may also form as the skin is affected by aging, and the decreased production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. The result of aging skin is often a loss of elasticity, sagging, and deep lines. In areas such as the nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth, or the marionette lines between the mouth and chin, dermal fillers can be injected to occupy the space beneath lines and thus plumping the skin for a more youthful appearance.
The key to your most natural, rejuvenated appearance is personalized care. In many cases, we choose both Botox and dermal fillers to produce the most dramatic results. In order to understand why you may choose one over the other is by looking at the various aspects of each type of treatment. Botox is what is called a neuromodulator. When injected into the skin, the real effect is on the muscles that lie beneath. Treated with Botox, muscles are placed into a state of relaxation, reducing contractions with facial expressions. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are injected into skin in areas that have lost volume. The only effect of dermal fillers is directly on the skin, where wrinkles and folds are lifted due to the filling of space beneath them. How long will Botox and Fillers last?
Results usually lasts from three to six months, depending on the patient, medical practitioner technique and the area treated. Areas of lower muscle activity and patients with lower amounts of muscle mass usually require less frequent treatments. Patients may often reduce the amount of botox needed to sustain results by returning to their medical practitioner for a follow-up treatment as soon as they detect excess movement in the treated area. Some patients, over time, need fewer treatments to sustain results, as the etching of lines may relax and even disappear.
Dermal fillers typically last up to a year or more before touch up treatments are needed. Added longevity can be achieved by returning to your medical practitioner for touch-ups while some filler is still present in the body, since the body will usually continue to respond to some degree with collagen production around these products. As with other advanced dermal fillers, many patients require less product and longer treatment intervals over time.What are Fillers made out of?
Dermal fillers are made of a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA) found naturally throughout our body. HA is a complex sugar that maintains its three-dimensional shape in the body by attracting and holding large number of water molecules. In the skin, HA fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers and replenishes the natural support layers lost with aging while delivering essential nutrients and hydration.What is Botox made out of?
Botulinum toxin is produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. When a small amount of Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract.Who is that best candidate for Botox or Fillers?
So many people in their 40s, 50s and 60s attempt to fix these wrinkles and folds once they’ve developed. But by injecting earlier, people can keep them from ever happening. If you slow down the use of these muscles beginning early in adult life, the lines never develop, rather than going backward and fixing something that’s there, you can inhibit it from starting in the first place.What should one expect after Botox and Fillers?
Botox can take 5-7 days to start working and it reaches it's maximum peak at 10 days. Fillers work immediately but look better 2 weeks later. This is because they absorb moisture, like an internal sponge. Depending on what kind of filler you are having injected, there may be a few instructions you need to follow prior to the procedure. You may have to lie down for a few hours after the procedure and the doctor may give you some instructions for taking care after you go home. You won’t have any marks or scarring. You may see some minor bruising, which can easily be hidden with concealer. Why do we do Botox underarms?
A treatment made famous for fighting wrinkles may also provide lasting relief from another embarrassing condition such as excessive underarm sweat. The first long-term study of Botox injections in the treatment of the common sweating disorder shows the injections can safely reduce underarm sweat for up to two years. What are Derma Rollers?
The actual Derma Roller is made up of a small, solid wheel attached to a little stick that propels it backwards and forwards across your face.The roller is covered with hundreds of minuscule 'micro-medical' needles that penetrate the skin, creating lots of tiny 'wounds'. Your skin responds by producing extra collagen to 'heal' the punctures, and that's what plumps up the skin again and enhances the natural blood supply - so you get a natural 'glow'. 4 facts one can achieve by having derma rollers done:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and décolletage
- Rejuvenate hands and minimise signs of ageing
- Revitalise aged and sun damaged skin
- Reduces acne scarring
