Botox and Fillers

How does Botox treat wrinkles?

Botox® is a purified form of botulinum toxin that’s used to treat many medical disorders, as well as aesthetic concerns. When your provider at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., injects Botox into targeted muscles, the medication stops muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to relax.

Botox is exceptionally effective for treating moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. These wrinkles develop over years of repetitive muscle movements combined with the natural aging process. These fine lines and wrinkles will soften and may even disappear after Botox injections. 


When will I see results after treatment with Botox?

Botox produces dramatic results in about 10 days, significantly softening your wrinkles and, in some cases, making them disappear.

There is no downtime with Botox injections. However, you may experience bruising. While you can cover the bruising with makeup, it’s important to be mindful of any work or social commitments in the days after your injection.

Your results may last up to four months. Botox wears off gradually, and you can choose to receive another treatment once you see more pronounced lines and/or movement return. Many clients find that their results last longer with successive Botox injections.


How do dermal fillers treat wrinkles?

Your face naturally loses volume as you age, due to bone, muscle, and fat loss. Your skin also becomes less resilient due to various factors, such as environment, lifestyle, and genetics.

Dermal fillers restore volume and fullness to your face. When your provider at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., injects the filler, wrinkles are plumped up and their appearance is softened. 

The providers at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., use the Juvéderm® collection of fillers, including Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, Juvéderm Vollure™ XC, Juvéderm Volbella® XC, and Belotero.

These fillers effectively: 

  • Smooth lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose
  • Restore volume in your cheeks
  • Diminish vertical lip lines
  • Plump up your lips
  • Lift your cheeks

Dermal fillers are also used to improve the appearance of scars, rejuvenate your hands, and reduce bags under your eyes.


When will I see results after treatment with dermal fillers?

Artistically placed fillers produce immediate results, diminishing the targeted wrinkles or lifting your cheeks to create a more youthful appearance. Your results may last for 6-12 months, depending on which dermal filler is used.
