Botox is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can help reduce the signs of aging by smoothing out wrinkles, lines, and other skin blemishes.
The procedure usually takes a little more than 10 minutes and involves injecting botulinum toxin into the muscles in your face.
It takes 2-3 days for the toxin to start working, and you should start to see the full effect within 2-3 weeks. Botox blocks the signals from your brain to the muscles in the areas that were treated. Causing the wrinkles to relax, soften, and in most instances all but disappear.
The effects of Botox typically last around 3-4 months before you need another treatment.
If you’re looking for a safe way to reverse the signs of aging, a dermal filler might be the best option for you.
A dermal filler is a straightforward and safe procedure. A small injection of gel is applied to the areas on your face where you’ve lost volume or have wrinkles, and the gel adds volume to the soft tissues under your skin.
Depending on the filler used, you can expect the effects to last anywhere from 6 months to several years.
