How Botox and Fillers Can Get You Holiday Ready

During this busy season, no one has time for surgery or downtime, so why not consider Botox or Fillers to get you ready for the holidays? Spend time with your family and friends with skin everyone will envy.
Physicians have been using Botox for many years to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creases successfully. Botox is the brand name of a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals to the injected muscles, so they are not able to contract, relaxing and softening wrinkles. It is usually used to reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
The treatment takes only a few minutes and does not require anesthesia. Botox is injected into muscles using a fine needle, with minor discomfort, yielding results within a few days that can last up to three to four months. As your muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear. With repeated treatments, you will notice creases becoming less prominent because the muscles are trained to relax.
Injectable fillers can erase the signs of aging for a fraction of what traditional facelifts cost. They work well to fill lines and wrinkles, with results lasting from four months up to more than one year. Injectable wrinkle fillers can be used as volumizers, filling in and augmenting cheeks, chins, jawlines, nasolabial folds or laugh lines, temples, along with plumping thin lips and sagging hands.
The most widely used wrinkle fillers are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body and provides skin with youthful suppleness and moisture. As we age, our levels of hyaluronic acids decrease, resulting in an increased appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers help restore the lost volume and smooth out wrinkles.
