Botox and dermal fillers have become one of the most popular and known aesthetic treatments by people, even those who’ve never been to med spa or aesthetics practice.They are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments injected into common facial areas such as around the eyes, forehead, corners of the mouth, and nose.

What is Botox?

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin or botulinum neurotoxin, is a highly potent protein that temporarily blocks out nerve signals to your facial muscles. Injecting the solution allows for the reduction of common wrinkles and is usually the first recommendation an aesthetician will give you.

Apart from aesthetic purposes, Botox appears in the world of modern medicine as well. Botox is widely used in medical practices as an effective treatment for ocular conditions such as crossed eyes, eyelid spasms, and uncontrolled blinking. Simultaneously, it can also be used for certain gastric issues by relaxing the muscles in the stomach lining. The important takeaway is that Botox has been on the market for a long time and its safety and efficacy have been tried and true.

Botox Procedure Overview

A Botox injection only takes a couple of minutes, and no anesthesia is necessary for the procedure. The aesthetic expert at Ageless 360 Medical Aesthetics will inject into specific muscles without any major discomfort. You can expect first signs of wrinkle recession within 3-5 days after the treatment, and the full effect will take up to 2 weeks to manifest. 

What Are Dermal Fillers?

As our aging process starts, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat, making the facial muscles work closer to the skin surface, unveiling unwanted smile lines and crow’s feet. Dermal fillers are substances resembling gel-like solutions. When injected into certain areas of the face, they fill the lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. While the modifications are not permanent, they can last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler and the area in which it’s inserted. 

The Process of Injecting Dermal Fillers

The first step of a dermal filler procedure is facial assessment and correct mapping. We’ll evaluate your entire facial appearance and skin tone. The whole procedure shouldn’t take more than an hour, depending on how many dermal fillers you receive. Afterwards, we will instruct you on the best aftercare treatment in order to maximize your treatment.
