Botox and other fillers can be used to decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as plump lips and cheeks, and rejuvenate hands. Your Charlotte, NC cosmetic specialist is an expert in the field.
Botox decreases the visibility of facial wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscles underneath. During the procedure for Botox, it is injected into your muscles, deactivating them. This process is fast and pain free. The smoothing out of lines and wrinkles can take a few days to notice, but results last for up to three to six months, after which your surgeon will see you for a follow-up injection.
The most popular injectable fillers are Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. Radiesse lasts for 18 to 24 months, Restylane lasts 6 to 8 months, and Juvederm lasts 1 to 2 years. The fillers Sculptra, Silicone, and CosmoPlast are less common injectables. Unlike the other fillers, Sculptra stimulates collagen growth. Although it takes multiple injections, and results are slow to notice, this is a longer lasting option overall. Silicone is a great choice for anyone with scars caused by acne or accidents. Unlike the other fillers, results from Silicone are permanent. Lastly, CosmoPlast, which comes from purified human collagen, is used on fine lines.
