When we were children we couldn’t wait to grow up. However, now that we’re adults we might stare into the mirror wondering who that person is that’s staring back at us. Sure, we might still feel like that child of ten, but we certainly don’t look like it anymore.
If you feel that your face could use a little lift but face lifts and other more invasive treatments have you reconsidering, then it’s time to see how dermal fillers could give you the younger-looking skin you want without surgery.
Botox has been FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles including frown lines, crown’s feet and those pesky wrinkles between the eyebrows. Botox injections contain acetylcholine, a chemical that stops muscles from contracting, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment only takes about 10-15 minutes to administer, it’s virtually painless and you can start to see results after about one to two days (with the full effects showing up after 30 days). Plus, there is no recovery period or downtime necessary after treatment, which makes this an ideal option for those with busy schedules. The results last anywhere from 5-9 months, and some patients will opt for more treatments to keep up their vibrant, new appearance.
This injectable is also FDA-approved to treat and minimize deep facial folds and wrinkles. Dermafill uses hyaluronic acid—a sugar molecule found in most living things—which means that this product is natural. Since this product uses natural materials to promote younger-looking skin, there is less chance of side effects or allergic reactions. Just like Botox, dermafill injections plump skin and added volume and smoothness to the face to make you appear more youthful. Treatment only takes about 15 minutes, and the results last for about a year.

Millions of people use Botox to achieve a more relaxed and smiooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression. Combining this with teeth whitening, short term orthodontics, or porcelain veneers, you will have a considerably more youthful appearance quickly.
Millions of people also suffer from TMJ syndrome, chronic migraine, headaches and other types of facial pain. You may have tried a number of different treatments for pain relief that have had little success. Botox can be very effective in treatment of facial pain disorder when used in conjunction with other treatments.
Botox is an FDA approved purified protein which is injected into the targeted muscles and temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements, essentially relaxing the muscles which reduce or eliminates fine wrinkles and lines. Within 3 - 5 days of the Botox injections, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected. The injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for approximately 3 months. With regular treatments, Botox can help train your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and facial pain for longer periods of time.
