Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable drug that temporarily paralyzes or weakens the muscles responsible for frown lines in the brow line and around your mouth. The team at Wellness Medical Center and Spa uses Botox injections to eliminate crow’s feet and frown lines.

The effects of Botox can last for several months, as the treatment smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and eliminates fine lines. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately. 

How does Botox work?

Botox is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Although toxic, it's safe to use in tiny amounts. And it's so powerful that a tiny amount is all you need to effectively immobilize muscles for several months at a time. Botox works by blocking the nerves' signal to the muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting, which makes it highly effective at diminishing wrinkles from forming in the forehead and around the eyes.

Botox's success and use have now become so widespread that it has FDA approval as a treatment for chronic migraines, eye twitching, and sweating, in addition to its more well-known cosmetic use.

What are dermal fillers?

As you age, your face loses its natural elasticity and collagen production slows down. This causes a loss of volume, your skin starts to sag, and you develop wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers expand your skin to eliminate fine lines and add volume to the treatment area. Fillers are also effective at plumping your lips and filling out sagging skin on your hands.

There are several types of dermal fillers available to enhance your natural beauty. Dermal filler treatments offer long-lasting results and require no recovery time. 

Are dermal fillers right for me?

Your aesthetic specialist at Wellness Medical Center and Spa reviews your medical history and discusses your cosmetic goals to ensure dermal filler treatments are right for you. Dermal fillers are effective in improving wrinkles and fine lines, but your specialist may recommend other treatments to help you achieve your specific goals.

Botox and fillers restore fuller, smoother, younger-looking skin. For an effortlessly fresh appearance, schedule an appointment online or by calling the team at Wellness Medical Center and Spa to learn more.
