Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin (more commonly known by the brand name Botox), is a purified protein that, in nature, is made from a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum.
By using a small amount of purified botulinum toxin, the team at Dr. Oren Friedman Facial Plastic Surgery can temporarily paralyze targeted muscles on your face that contribute to folded, aged, or wrinkled skin.
Botox is an effective way to reduce or eliminate:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Facial Asymmetry
Millions of people have used Botox to transform their skin safely.
What are dermal fillers?
While Botox is extremely effective at treating wrinkles that are caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles, dermal fillers are an excellent option for smoothing wrinkles, adding volume, correcting sagging tissues, and replacing loss of fat that all accompany the aging process.
Also known as injectable wrinkle fillers, these treatments can:
- Plump thin lips
- Fill hollow cheeks
- Smooth deep nasolabial folds
- Soften creases in your cheeks
There are several types of dermal fillers, and they may use the following ingredients to help smooth your skin:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Synthetic materials
The team at Dr. Oren Friedman Facial Plastic Surgery is experienced in assisting people in looking their best. They can help you pick the right dermal filler for your skin goals, your lifestyle, and your budget.
What should I expect from a Botox and filler appointment?
One of the best things about these injectable treatments is that they’re quick and easy. Most procedures take a half-hour or less. The injections are fast, and most patients report that they’re relatively painless. What’s more, you can continue with your day immediately after, making this an ideal lunchtime procedure.
You will usually see the full effects of Botox in about 2-14 days, although this window varies from person to person. Your Botox results will last between 3-6 months.
Similarly, dermal fillers can last anywhere between a few months to more than a year, depending on your unique skin type and the kind of dermal filler you choose.
You can get rid of your fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re ready to transform your face without surgery, over lunch-time, call Dr. Oren Friedman Facial Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or request your appointment online.
Facelift surgery lifts and firms sagging facial tissues to restore a naturally youthful facial appearance. It is often said that a facelift helps you look like a younger and better version of yourself.
