There are two forms of injectables: neurotoxins and fillers or volumizers. Botox, also known as botulinum toxin A, is a neurotoxin and one of the most well-known anti-aging beauty treatments in the world. Newer formulas that competitors offer just don’t compare. Dr. Esla injects this revolutionary product into your face to paralyze the muscles so they don’t move in ways that create lines and wrinkling. He uses a very fine needle to inject Botox. In most cases, the injections have no notable side effects and no bruising.
With fillers or volumizers, you also get injections into specific locations on your face. These plump and boost sagging skin. They have nearly limitless possibilities: Fillers can remove wrinkles, smooth fine lines, and even improve facial features. The cheek bones, lips, and most facial folds are some of the common areas that fillers and volumizers improve. These products take effect immediately, so your results are instantly gratifying. Specific areas that benefit from the use of fillers include:
In some cases, you benefit from a combining Botox and a filler treatment. Dr. Esla can help you decide what can bring you the results you’re after.
At Oral & Facial Specialists, the filler that we offer is Juvederm. During your evaluation, Dr. Esla goes over the most recommended products for your desired results. You might just become addicted to their miraculous results.
Dr. Esla uses a very fine needle, so the sensations from the injections are minimal, but they can cause a little discomfort or pain, especially when applied between the eyebrows. In this case, you may request a topical anesthetic prior to the injections.
How long results last varies from patient to patient and the locations of the injections, but most people can expect results from Botox to remain for three to four months. The results from most fillers last a bit longer — from four to six months.
