Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables that reduce bothersome signs of aging in men and women. The treatment is painless without invasive procedures.
Botox contains FDA-approved toxins that paralyze muscles responsible for laugh, smile, and frown lines. This cosmetic injectable also reduces migraines, lazy eye, eye twitching, and excessive underarm sweating.
Dermal fillers increase volume in your lips, face, or body to reduce unwelcome signs of aging and improve contours. Examples of fillers available at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa include Juvéderm®, Juvéderm® Volbella, Juvéderm Voluma®, Sculptra®, and more.
The benefits associated with Botox and fillers include:
The minor side effects associated with these injections are temporary and often subside within a few hours.
The Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa team asks about your medical history and beauty goals to find out if you're a candidate for Botox and fillers. They examine the skin on your face or body before tailoring your cosmetic treatment plan.
The first step in receiving dermal fillers at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa is for your specialist to numb the treatment area to eliminate discomfort. They slowly and gently inject Botox, fillers, or both into the treatment site beneath your skin.
While you often need multiple cosmetic injections during a treatment session, each takes just a second or two.
After each treatment, you can expect temporary side effects like tenderness, redness, and swelling at the injection sites. Right after receiving Botox, it’s necessary to avoid touching the treatment areas because Botox can spread to other parts of your body. Ice the treatment areas to reduce tenderness and swelling if needed.
While you will notice the results of dermal fillers immediately, the results of Botox may require a few days to take effect. Botox often lasts about 3-5 months, while dermal fillers can last 6-24 months, sometimes longer. Repeated cosmetic injections over time allow you to maintain long-lasting, natural-looking, anti-aging results.
