A Shortcut to Beauty & Youth!
A highly purified protein when injected into a specific area it makes the muscles relax so not to be able to create muscular movement and wrinkles. The effect may take up to 5-7 days for the maximum effect to be apparent where the area becomes smooth and relaxed and wrinkle free.
Also Known as skin botox, Dermotoxin improves fine lines and overall skin complexion.
Having Botox does not have to render you without expression. Highly experienced dermatologist’s assessment process allows them to visualize your facial function and minimize any possible loss of facial expression.
Side effects are minimal and will be discussed with you as part of the assessment consultation.
The cosmetic physicians have been looking for an injectable substance to fill up or augment the soft tissue in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is the most popular dermal filler. There are many different brands including Juvederm.Teosyal, and Restylene.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar formed by Glucosamine and Glucuronic acid. It is found in all living cells. It is a major component of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin. Its property helps to attract hydration and maintain volume in the skin.
After being injected into the dermis, it absorbs and retains water, and the expansion will enhance the volume. It is slowly broken down into carbon dioxide and water in the liver.
Lots of people get confused between hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and Botox. The filler fills in wrinkles, furrows, and enhances lips. Botox relaxes underlying muscles that produce frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, lip lines, chin dimpling, and neck banding.
This is done using an ultra-fine needle or cannula. There is some pain but usually well tolerable and the doctor may apply a local anesthetic cream or use injection anesthesia.
The result is immediately noticeable and dramatic. Often the wrinkle or fold will be diminished by 50 - 80%, or more, depending on the severity and the amount of filler used. The result will usually last for 9- 12months. As the filler is slowly re-absorbed, the enhanced volume will shrink gradually. After that, it needs to be repeated again. After injection, the area may appear a little red and swollen, but this is usually very transient. Most patients go back to their daily activities immediately.
