Botox and Fillers
What is Botox?
Botox or botulinum toxin therapy is a neuromodulator. When injected into specific areas of the face, it smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. Botox works extremely well on dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines and creases that occur from your facial expressions.
Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. uses Botox® Cosmetic and Xeomin® for dynamic wrinkle treatments. Both neuromodulators work well when reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Xeomin has fewer additives than Botox, which may prevent your body from developing antibodies against it. When your body develops antibodies towards anything, it becomes “immune” to it, making the treatment (in this case Botox) less effective.
How does Botox work?
Botox blocks nerve signals to the injected muscle. That causes the muscle to weaken, preventing the facial expressions that cause the lines and creases. Over time, your skin relaxes, so the lines and wrinkles smooth out.
Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. uses Botox to treat:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
- Gummy smile
- Lip lines
- Marionette lines
- Dimpled chin
- Platysmal bands
The providers also use Botox for eyebrow shaping.
Botox injections at Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. take only a few minutes and require no downtime. Though the providers recommend you skip any strenuous exercise for at least two hours after your beauty treatment.
When do I see results from Botox?
You should notice an improvement in your appearance within three days after your Botox injections. But it may take up to two weeks until you see the full effects.
Botox treatments are temporary and last three to six months. Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. recommends you schedule your next Botox appointment as soon as your lines and wrinkles reappear.
Repeating your injections not only helps you maintain your youthful look but may prevent new wrinkles from forming.
What are dermal fillers?
As you get older, your face naturally loses subcutaneous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Without these natural barriers, your facial muscles work closer to the skin, making your smile lines and crow’s feet more apparent. Lack of support also causes your skin to stretch and sag.
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic injection that corrects volume loss. Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. uses dermal fillers to:
- Add volume to lips
- Correct shallow contours
- Soften facial creases
- Remove wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
The aesthetic and wellness practice uses the Juvéderm® and Restylane® line of fillers.
Botox and dermal fillers are simple cosmetic treatments that restore your youthful appearance and enhance your natural beauty. To schedule a consultation, contact Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. by phone or book online today.
