Botox and dermal filler treatments are simple: the injection process takes only a matter of minutes. Your specialist asks about your areas of concern and examines your skin or has you make some facial expressions to determine exactly what parts of the involved areas to target. The injections are virtually painless because they use an ultrafine syringe.
After treatment, you could notice the relaxing of your wrinkles and improvements in your look in as little as a day. Results improve steadily over the next week or so, with the final results being seen at 30 days*.
Botox can last for as long as four months, while dermal fillers may last for six months or more*. As time goes on, the product dissipates naturally. You’ll notice increased muscle movement and the lines will gradually return, however you can prevent this by scheduling retreatment. Your specialist at Brooks Dermatology PC can help you determine the best maintenance schedule.
Taking good care of your skin with cosmetic dermatology approaches like quality skin care and good sun protection can help you extend the results of your Botox and filler treatments as long as possible.
