Soft tissue fillers are injected under the skin to "plump up," contour and smooth wrinkles, lines and hollow areas in the face and to augment the lips or cheeks for a younger, fuller appearance.
What Is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure, made from botulinum toxin A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. Botox is used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections.
How Does Botox® Work?
When injected into the skin, it can block the nerve muscles that are responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
Results Of Botox® Injections
After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of Botox injections typically last up to four months, with some patients reporting results lasting up to a full year.
