Botox is formulated from a carefully controlled and minute volume of Clostridium botulinum, a substance found naturally in soil, lakes, and forests. A neurotoxin, this substance works to alter the way your muscle tissue functions.
Botox is injected into certain facial muscles to prevent them from going through their full range of motion. It’s an excellent way to reduce lines, folds, and wrinkles around your eyes (crow’s feet), between your brows, and across your forehead.
Injections take just moments to complete, and the effects develop within a day or two. Your results will last around four months, at which time you can decide if you’d like to return for another treatment.
Botox has an extensive safety record and has been used in medical applications for more than 50 years. The team at Dr. Moma Health & Wellness Clinic has the skills and experience needed to leverage this powerful tool to help you look your very best. Dysport® is a similar injectable medication that smooths lines and wrinkles. Your provider can discuss which option is best for you.
Dermal fillers work to restore or enhance your facial volume. During your younger years, your face is padded with a thick layer of collagen. As time passes, you lose much of that natural padding, leaving your skin to sag and pool into lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers introduce volume into the targeted areas. Administered via injections, the filler smooths and plumps skin, giving you a more youthful appearance without a stretched or unnatural look.
There are many types of dermal fillers to choose from. Each is formulated for a specific use, with thicker fillers usually used in the cheeks or larger areas of the face and thinner fillers used to correct the lines around the eyes or lips.
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from a few months to longer than a year, depending on the type of filler used. Best of all, your body responds to these injections by producing new collagen, which creates lasting volume and softness.
A liquid face-lift is a term used to describe a combination of Botox and dermal fillers. The team has advanced training that enables them to assess your face and determine exactly which treatments can bring you closer to your aesthetic ideal.
She can erase lines and wrinkles using a series of Botox or Dysport injections and select the proper fillers to smooth your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers can even plump and refine the shape of your lips.
It’s important to rely on a medical professional when considering a liquid face-lift or any advanced aesthetic treatment. An unskilled hand can lead to disappointing results, or negative side effects from injection techniques or using the wrong volume of filler or neurotoxin.
