Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox, and dermal fillers, are two of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the world. However, there are still many people who do not know everything about them.
Therefore, from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons they give us all the details.
- The doctor is a very important part as the success of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments depends on the skill of the physician. Therefore, it is very important to have a doctor who has enough experience and, above all, has a degree.
- Expectations of results. You have to be aware that botox may not achieve the look you want. Therefore, you should consider undergoing other treatments that can better satisfy your needs.
- Uses of Botox. These injections are generally used to treat wrinkles on the upper face, around the eyes, and on the forehead. Dermal fillers are placed under the skin to provide support and volume in multiple facial areas, including the lips, around the mouth, and at the jawline.
- Before and after botox. You do not need to do anything before or after the treatment. All you have to do is keep your head elevated and avoid vigorous exercise for about four hours after treatment. On the other hand, it takes about a week for Botox results to appear gradually.
- Length of results. Factors that affect the duration of results include how much product was injected, the product used, and where it was administered to the face. In general, botulinum toxin lasts for about 3 to 4 months, while hyaluronic acid fillers average 9 to 12 months.
- Possible side effects. Although injectables such as botox and dermal fillers are relatively safe and effective, there are some side effects such as redness, bruising, and swelling at the injection site.
