Botox and Dermal Filler Done Right…
One of the main thoughts our patients share with us is that they are concerned if they get fillers, botox or other injectable treatments like Dysport that they will start looking weird, or like a celebrity with bad plastic surgery.
Our patients look refreshed and relaxed. They tell us that treatments have restored their
confidence and that they look like themselves again. In fact a lot of them say they recognize themselves in the mirror as the energetic person they once knew, before age began to show.
We focus on using Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm to restore what was lost, not to create a new look altogether.
Dermal fillers are one of the best ways to manage the volume loss that will happen to all of us!
In the course of our adulthood, we lose a lot of volume in our faces. We lose fat in our face and our bones shrink- the jawline gets softer, the chin shrinks and we lose fat even in the temples.
All this shrinkage allows for sagginess in the face giving a tired and aged look. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule that is already in our skin and other areas like the eyeball. Hyaluronic acid was first used in medicine to help revitalize osteoarthritic joints and during eye surgery. This is a safe product that can really bring back a youthful shape and structure to the face if done right.
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, play a key role in treating lines caused by movement.
Imagine repeatedly folding a piece of paper. That’s what we do to the skin when we repeatedly frown or raise our eyebrows. That creasing will result in permanent lines unless movement is lessened with Botox or Dysport. The relaxation, allows the skin to fix itself over time. The effects of Dysport and Botox last three to six months. This gives the skin a break so it can repair itself. That is how we get rid of furrow lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, chin texture as well as lip and forehead lines.
If Botox & Dermal Fillers are used carefully and with expertise, no one should be able to tell what you’ve had done!
