Botox & Fillers
Botox is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck.
What is Botox?
BOTOX is the only FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. Botox is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use all around the world.
How does Botox treatment work?
Botox treatment targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your surgeon will inject these muscles with Botox to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Where is Botox applied?
Nowadays, Botox is most commonly applied over the facial area. It represents a method, effective in wrinkle treatment, skin sagging treatment as well as removal of bags under the eye area. It takes the first place among aesthetic treatments preferred by women.
Am I a candidate for Botox?
Botox application is not a decision to make on your own. It has to be consulted and approved by your doctor. The only decision you can make would be that you definitely need Botox. Once you have made this decision, you need to consult references and experienced doctor about details concerning the application.
Will people understand I had a Botox treatment?
Botox is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to our surgeons about the results you want from treatment.
Does Botox treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with Botox feels like a pinch. Our medical team will do their best to make you feel comfortable and have a relaxing and minimum pain Botox experience.
Are there any side effects of Botox?
Botox application doesn’t have any side effects that may affect your health. However, once applied, Botox may affect particularly the movement of muscles, ensuring the mimics are reduced or completely eliminated. Especially over the cheek area, the application may prevent you from seeing your previous mimics while smiling. It makes your skin look firmer, fresh and beautiful.
How long does Botox treatment take?
Our surgeons will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 – 15 minutes.
When will I see my Botox treatment results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and our medical team will give you specific aftercare instructions.
Do men receive Botox treatment too?

One of the earliest signs of ageing is a loss of facial fullness and the development of wrinkles. Dermal fillers are popular treatments for wrinkles and facial lines. Injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars.
Dermal fillers are often used to:
*Soften facial creases and wrinkles
*Enhance shallow contours
*Create fullness in the lips
*Correct “lipstick lines” around the mouth
*Restore fuller cheeks
*Improve forehead frown lines, when used in conjunction with Botox
*Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of ageing, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
Am I a candidate for dermal fillers?
One of the earliest signs of ageing is a loss of facial fullness and the development of wrinkles. While cosmetic injectable fillers do not stop the ageing process, injectable fillers may help delay the need for more invasive procedures, such as a facelift, brow lift or other procedures.
*Dermal filler treatments offer patients a wide range of benefits, including a more youthful appearance, and it can be used to fill minor to moderate lines and wrinkles and is especially effective around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
*When used as a lip enhancement product, it can lend volume and definition to lips and this treatment can be customized to your needs providing a natural look
*Treatment is non-invasive, with virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
*Treatment is not permanent and will naturally go away
Types of Dermal Fillers
It is a natural protein that is the primary component of the second layer of the skin, the dermis. Collagen acts as the support structure of the skin for the growth of cells and blood vessels. Collagen treatment can be used to touch-up areas around the mouth and forehead where wrinkles have begun to appear. Lip collagen injections also help patients achieve fuller lips.
If you want to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, hyaluronic acid may be a good choice as a dermal filler because of its compatibility with the human body. In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing. In humans, it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal ageing. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
It is harvested from your own body, can be reinjected to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases and to build up shallow contours. Augmentation through fat injections requires a more extensive procedure than other injectable fillers because it involves the use of liposuction techniques to extract the fat prior to injection.
