Botox is a long-term treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works by using a muscle relaxant in the muscles surrounding the wrinkles. By relaxing the muscles around the wrinkles, the appearance of the wrinkles is diminished. Botox works best on certain wrinkles in the face; is recommended for the wrinkles that naturally occur around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and around the mouth.
Your doctor at Psymed Solutions & Aesthetics injects your muscles with Botox to relax them. This takes only a few minutes and results are often seen in a few short weeks.
Cosmetic fillers are another option for long-term wrinkle treatment. Like Botox, they’re injected into the skin on your face. They work by filling in the line or crease of the wrinkle. Cosmetic fillers are most often used to treat smile lines and can also have a volumizing effect.
Cosmetic fillers are also quick to administer, and some patients prefer them because they find they have longer lasting effects than Botox. There are a variety of cosmetic fillers available today, each with its own timeline and effect, and the doctors at Psymed Solutions & Aesthetics can help you choose the best one for you at your initial consultation.
It’s best to have a consultation with one of the doctors at Psymed Solutions & Aesthetics to determine which wrinkle treatment is right for you. Because they can be used on different parts of the face, sometimes two treatments are used. Botox and cosmetic fillers have side effects, so including information about your medical history and any allergies you have can be useful in your conversation about these cosmetic treatments.
The practice’s goal is to help you achieve the look you want, and its skilled healthcare professionals can recommend a treatment based on your specific needs and desires. The good news is that Botox and cosmetic fillers are effective at treating wrinkles and patients are often thrilled with the results both in the short-term and the long-term.
