It’s often a fine line between looking focused or too stern. Upper facial expressions and lines can give off the appearance of stress, exhaustion, anger, or being overly critical. This can show up too early for some. Botox® for the forehead and around the eyes helps say "goodbye!" to frowning and worry.
Bring Back Lost Volume
Dermal fillers restore volume in the hollows of the cheeks; the fat padding here is lost in your 30’s and 40’s and its loss can contribute to looking fatigued and gaunt. Pairing cheek volume loss restoration with treatments around the nose and mouth can take ages off your face by giving you a smoother and youthful appearance.
There is Really No Down Side
The biggest myth is that Botox® and improvements with dermal filler will make you look like you’ve had work “done." Instead, others will be wondering why you look so rested and renewed. Botox® and dermal fillers are subtle treatments that make changes look natural, allowing you to obtain that I-just-had-a-holiday look. With combination treatments, the benefits are amplified.
A Lunchtime Procedure
Dermal fillers and Botox® are given by injection, but unlike the usual shots you've had, the needles are small and most rate the discomfort as a 2–4 out of 10. The great thing about Botox is that treatment can be done within the time of a typical lunch break. No one will even notice you were gone!
Little Post-Treatment Maintenance and Recovery
The most important post-treatment care for Botox® and dermal filler injections is to ensure that you don't disturb the area. Normally, a few hours or a day or so is all you need for swelling and redness to subside. However, if planning for a very special event, give yourself two weeks for recovery in case you are a bit bruised.
