The Beauty Of Botox

How lucky women (and men) were when it was discovered that Botox could reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. A few simple injections in troublesome areas of the face could make you look younger and more vibrant.

The results are first noticeable by you (but no one else) and the full effect takes about 7 to 14 days. Results are temporary and normally last 4 to 6 months before you need another set of injections as the muscles will slowly begin to contract again.

Botox improves dynamic wrinkles which are due to aging and the creasing muscles in your face. The injections relax those muscles and your wrinkles are softened and almost disappear. Common areas for treatment include moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

Dynamite Dermal Fillers

There are a number of fillers known as  Restylane, Juvederm, and other names which all work similarly. As we age we begin to lose collagen and areas of our face lose volume causing us to look older. These non-invasive injections restore lost volume in your face.

Dermal fillers can “fill” the missing collagen and bring back the youthful firm look of your skin. It can plump up thin lips and improve the contour of your face.

Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid (found naturally in our body) which stimulates the production of lost collagen. So not only does it fill in missing volume, but it also helps to improve your skin and replace collagen as it works.

Dermal fillers last a bit longer than Botox and some newer types can last up to a year.

Now that you know the lead time required to look spectacular by the holidays, make an appointment(s) with Dr. Wendy Gottlieb now for your Botox or dermal filler treatment during the month of November before they fill up!
