Success A t Y our B e s t
As the holidays approach, many people are looking for quick
rejuvenation with minimal downtime. Two great options are injections
of a neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport to soften lines and
wrinkles, and fillers which can provide volume to the face, and fill in
bothersome facial lines. Botox injections will soften the appearance
of facial lines such as crow’s feet and the frown lines between the
brows. It can also be used to elevate the brow, making the eyes
appear brighter and more open. The results can be seen in 2-5 days,
and you should maintain the effects for 3-4 months. Additionally,
hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can help to
plump up lips, fill in the marionette lines and nasolabial folds. They
can also be put into the cheek to provide volume since this is an area
where we often lose fat as we age. Filler placed into the tear trough
of the lower lids can help decrease the appearance of dark circles.
It’s best to do these procedures about 2 weeks before any important
event in case you get any swelling or bruising.
