"NON SURGICAL ANTI AGING AND REJUVENATION TREATMENTS"
 BOTOX

Botox injections are the best known of a group of medications that use various forms of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity..

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles therefore temporarily paralysing it. The injected muscle (facial muscle causing wrinkles and contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.

The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles, such as:

 Forehead furrows, the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows* Frown lines between the eyebrows

 Crow's-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes Rem : Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.

Patients who are
 Pregnant
 Breast feeding
 Neurological Disorders
 Unrealistic expectations should not receive the treatment.
Rem : Botox doesn't work recommended.

Botox must be used only under a doctor's care. It can become problematic if it's administered incorrectly. Look for a doctor who specializes in your condition and who has experience in administering Botox treatments ( Certified Injector).A skilled and properly certified doctor can advise you on the procedure and can help determine if it best suits your needs and health.

Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect.

Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botox. Headache, which resolve in 24-48 hours, can occur, but this is rare. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping. This usually resolves in three weeks. This usually happens when the Botox moves around so you shouldn't rub the treated area for 12 hours after injection or lay down for three to four hours.

 Your doctor will need to know if you've received any type of botulinum toxin injections within the past four months.
 Avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment.
 Inform your doctor about Blood Thinners (Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications) if you are taking any as they should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
 Your doctor also needs to know if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids or allergy medications.

Before the procedure:
Although most people tolerate the injection discomfort well, you may want your skin to be numb beforehand. Several options are available, including:
 Injections. Your doctor can inject a numbing medication into your skin.
 Cream. - A prescription cream can be applied 60 to 90 minutes before the procedure and is more than sufficient for majority of the people.


During the procedure

our doctor uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated. Botox injections are usually done in a doctor's office.


After the procedure

Expect to resume your normal daily activities right after the procedure. Take care, though, not to rub or massage the treated areas. This can cause the toxin to migrate to a different area and remember not to sleep with your face down for a day.


Results :

Botulinum toxin injections usually begin working a few days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last for four to twelve months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. To maintain the effect however, you'll need regular follow-up injections.

 FILLERS
Dermal fillers can be very helpful to fight the early signs of aging thereby making you look a few years younger!

As we age,
 Our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat.
 The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
 The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to loss of facial volume.
 Other factors that contribute to aging process such as sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle also come into play!!

Dermal fillers are a naturally-derived or synthetic material that is directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or following reasons
 Plumping thin lips.
 Enhancement of shallow contours
 Soften facial creases and wrinkles
 Other factors that contribute to aging process such as sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle also come into play!!
Among the commonly used fillers, the one which is safer is Hyaluronic acid(Restylane, Juvederm, Captique). The drawing fluid to the treated area.
Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years; for semi-permanent or permanent fillers, the effects can last up to five years, and there are reports of even longer-lasting results.So go ahead with fillers if you want that plumper and younger looking skin.

Although both procedures involve injections, Botox is most often injected around the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes (crow's feet) to stop muscle movement that results in wrinkles. It has nothing to do with the plumping or smoothing effect dermal fillers have.
Because they work in different manners, many people elect to get both Botox and dermal fillers at the same time as the combination can produce a remarkably younger smoother looking face.

A skilled and properly certified (in Botox and Fillers) doctor can advise you on the procedure and can help determine if it best suits your needs and health.It can become problematic if administered incorrectly. So kindly look for a doctor (Dermatologist/ Plastic Surgeon) who specializes in your condition and who has experience in administering Fillers.

 Bruising
 Redness
 Swelling
 Pain
 Tenderness
Itching, rash
Most side effects associated with soft tissue fillers and happen shortly after injection and most go away in less than two weeks.

There's every reason to consider dermal fillers to correct signs of aging that are beyond what skincare products can do. It's not that great skincare can't make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin but age, muscle movement,and sun damage among other factors will eventually take their toll.
Without question, fillers can help improve the appearance of deep lines and give skin a more supple, youthful appearance in ways that skincare simply cannot.If you're considering dermal fillers, the next step is to consult with your dermatologist to figure out which type of dermal filler is right for you. And don't forget, as with any cosmetic corrective procedure, you still need to use well-formulated skincare products and sun protection (even when it's cloudy) as part of the anti-aging treatment that will keep your skin looking younger and healthier for a very long time!

Before deciding to have a procedure using soft Drug Administration) recommends that:
You seek a specialist in the fields of dermatology or plastic surgery.
 Select a doctor who is trained to perform the soft tissue filler injection procedure.  Before deciding to have soft tissue filler injections, talk with your health care provider about appropriate treatment injection sites and the risks associated with the procedure.  Be aware that FDA reviewed areas of the face.
