Botox is a quick , effective and minimally invasive procedure with dramatic effects without any downtime.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox (type A botulinum toxin) is a purified protein that acts as a relaxing muscle and is injected into muscles or deep into the skin.
Botox acts by partly blocking nerve impulses of all muscles that have been inserted, which reduces these muscles' unnecessary contractions.
Hence it can slowly soften the wrinkles in the overlying skin and sometimes disappear.
What happens during the treatment?
First, we'll speak with you about your hopes and diagnosis and take a patient background.
Then you would usually be told to sign a consent statement showing you knew what the procedure could do, and the possible side effects.
We would then decide when the injections will be delivered by testing the capacity to move those muscles in the wrinkle region.
While you can want to numb the region with a cold pack or anesthetic cream, no anesthesia is necessary.
Treatment involves several tiny, relatively painless injections (they said they feel like an ant sting). The entire injection procedure usually takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes.
How long does it take to see results?
Many patients will show improvement within 24-48 hours but the full effect will take as long as two weeks.
How long do the results last?
A Botox treatment usually lasts 3 to 4 months. There are some doctors who have long term outcomes.
Unless you keep your therapy appointments at the level your injector advises,
the length of each medication outcome can last longer than 5 months.
Are these treatments safe?
Botox has a proven safety record of 20 years. Health doctors have not reported any significant
side effects associated with its cosmetic use. The FDA recommends medication for some beauty procedures and numerous
medicinal purposes, such as heavy vomiting, migraines and muscle spasms.
Slight bruise can occur after any injection. Side effects are exceedingly severe and involve eyelid or eyebrow dropouts.
Security during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not scientifically confirmed, and therefore the treatment of Botox is not recommended in breastfeeding or pregnant women.
What will happen to my wrinkles if I decide not to continue getting Botox?
For about 3-4 months, as Botox wears off, the lines appear and the cycle of aging continues as before.
Nevertheless, patients undergoing repeated therapies sometimes undergo a degree of lasting wrinkle recovery.
That is that when the skin regenerates spontaneously each day, it forms without a wrinkle because you don't continuously bundle the
region with the undesired facial care.
Fillers are effective in reducing age-related lines and volume reduction of lips and cheeks.
For the best results, the Doctor, Dr Julie Conradie, uses Juvéderm fillers.
What is a filler and how does it work?
The most commonly used fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid that is a natural substance in the skin.
It is a gel which is injected into the skin.
These can be used to fill lines on your face (such as the smile lines between nose and mouth) or they can add volume to age-flattened areas (such as the lips or cheeks).
The hyaluronic acid holds moisture within the gel. Most moisturizers contain hyaluronic acid so the best way to
replenish the hyaluronic acid deep inside the skin is by facial fillers.
How long do fillers last?
The fillers last between six and 12 months, depending on the treatment and the product.
The results will last up to 18 months in some cases.
Are the treatments painful?
Before the treatment, the area is numbed so the treatment is more pleasant. Juvederm is also formulated with lidocaine, an
anaesthetic, which makes the treatment more comfortable.
A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it.
