Is your face making you appear tired or angry, even though you don’t feel that way? The natural aging process, combined with other factors like gravity, sun exposure, and the daily stresses of life, can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of the face. To restore a youthful facial appearance, individuals all over Washington D.C. seek effective treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved substance produced from a toxin that is derived from bacterium Clostridium. This injectable diminishes fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles of the face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively improve the following:
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are performed on an outpatient basis and require no anesthesia. After the targeted areas are cleaned, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered directly into the muscles of the face through a fine needle. The results will not be immediately apparent but will become noticeable over the next few days. Although every patient is different, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections usually last between three and six months.
Injectable fillers restore fullness to areas of the face that experienced loss of volume. There is a variety of fillers that are available in cosmetic treatment, but a fat transfer is often highly desired because it eliminates the risk of an allergic reaction.
A fat transfer can improve the facial appearance by:
Restoring fullness to the eye area
Adding volume to the cheeks
Filling in folds around the mouth
Plumping the lips
Filling in deeper lines, wrinkles, and creases
Fat transfer is performed on an outpatient basis. Once the targeted areas are cleaned, fat that was previously harvested from another area of the patient’s body is injected into the face. Patients are usually able to enjoy a refreshed and more youthful appearance immediately after the procedure, and the results can last anywhere from a few months to a few years.
