How do you know if you need Botox/Fillers?
If you're like anyone else, you probably spend some of your day squinting, frowning or doing some other thing with your face. Eventually the skin around the muscles you use to make those faces become less elastic & leave lines/wrinkles. If you see this in yourself, you could be ready for a Botox/Filler treatment!
How Do Botox/Fillers Work?
With a few tiny injections, Botox blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the muscle activity, causing those persistent wrinkles to form. This reduced muscle activity helps reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. The treatment can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes, so it's perfect for your lunchbreak. No anesthetic is required, so it is a very simple and smooth process.
When Can I expect to see results?
Results typically occur within four to seven days after treatment, though appearances can continue to improve over a month, we typically suggest a re-treatment after 3-4 months after your initial visit.
