What causes wrinkles to form? Wrinkles are primarily caused by a combination of factors, including aging, sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions, and loss of skin elasticity due to reduced collagen production.
What wrinkle treatments do you offer? We offer a range of wrinkle treatments, including Botox injections to relax muscles and dermal fillers to add volume and smooth wrinkles.
How does Botox work to reduce wrinkles? Botox is a neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles, resulting in smoother and less noticeable lines.
Are dermal fillers a good option for deeper wrinkles? Yes, dermal fillers can be effective for deeper wrinkles and areas that have lost volume, such as the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
Is the treatment painful? Discomfort is usually minimal. Most treatments involve a fine needle, and we can use numbing cream or ice to help minimize any discomfort.
How long does it take to see results from these treatments? Botox results can start to become noticeable within a few days, with full effects appearing within a week. Dermal filler results are usually immediate.
How long do the results last? Botox results typically last around 3-4 months, while the longevity of dermal filler results varies depending on the type of filler used and the treated area.
Are there any side effects or risks? Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. Serious complications are rare when treatments are performed by experienced professionals.
Can I combine Botox and dermal fillers in the same session? Yes, combining Botox and dermal fillers in a single session can provide comprehensive rejuvenation by targeting different aspects of aging.
Can these treatments be tailored to my specific needs? Absolutely. We customize treatment plans based on your individual concerns and desired outcomes. A consultation is crucial to develop a personalized approach.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to treat wrinkles? Yes, aside from Botox and dermal fillers, treatments like laser therapy and chemical peels can also address wrinkles and improve skin texture.
How do I maintain the results over time? Regular maintenance treatments are usually required to sustain results. We can recommend a personalized schedule based on your unique needs.
When can I resume normal activities after the treatment? Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after Botox or dermal filler treatments. However, we may advise you to avoid vigorous exercise and certain activities for a short period.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for the treatment? Before your treatment, it’s generally a good idea to avoid blood-thinning medications, alcohol, and heavy sun exposure. We’ll provide you with specific instructions during your consultation.
