Botox and Fillers… and the Stigma That Surrounds Them

Aging is something that is going to happen no matter what, and yes, there are ways to slow down the process. This can be accomplished by allowing a natural, age-appropriate appearance at the same time.

We have all seen those women who have had just that little bit too much… and we are talking Hollywood. The housewives of wherever are sending mixed messages on what cosmetic injections and dermal fillers will look like when all is said and done. I am here to tell you, your husband, and your friends that this is not the reality.

Did you know that Botox can help hide wrinkles or prevent more from forming? When Botox is injected into the muscle, it stops that muscle from moving, therefore not allowing wrinkles or lines to form. If lines are already there, it smooths out the area and over time those lines become less and less noticeable. Your face can still move and show expression… just wrinkle-free!

When talking fillers, the rich and the famous could have as many as 20 syringes of filler injected into their face! This is what creates that unnatural appearance.

I offer half syringes as needed, as a half syringe in an already full lip can create a nice, subtle plump that it may have been lacking. A full syringe in each cheekbone can create a natural-looking lift, re-volumizing the face and leaving the skin looking more radiant.

How much will you need?

With dermal fillers, it is very individual. It depends on what bothers you and what you want done.

With Botox, the dose is delivered in units. I can say generally, to treat the forehead/between the eyebrows, people require anywhere from 15-40 units, depending on what results the individual is looking for.

How long does it last?

Botox: Approximately 3-4 months. The more frequently you come, the less you will need over time.

Fillers: Approximately 6-12 months, depending on how fast your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid in the filler. Everybody is different.

So hold your head up high and show off your smooth forehead or your nice, plump lips! Lots of people are doing it… and you don’t notice because it looks so natural!
