Botox & Fillers in Mississauga

Botox and Fillers Mississauga —Safe, Viable Options for Your Makeover

It’s not a pleasant feeling seeing your first signs of wrinkles or frown marks. Over time, the skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, volume and fullness. There is a natural anxiety about losing one’s looks. The good news is that there are a number of safe, non-surgical treatments available that can help retain your youthful appearance. The most widely used and safe options are Botox and Fillers in Mississauga, Oakville, and Waterloo. Many doctors these days recommend that both be used as a combination for optimum effect. The most important thing to keep in mind, however, is that these treatments should be administered by experienced professionals who are trained to carry out a medically safe and painless procedure.

Botox or Fillers—What’s the Difference?

Botox injections have been successfully used since the early 1990s to treat wrinkles and lines caused by the contraction of underlying facial muscles.   Botox helps remove these age-related lines, especially frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. It works by temporarily weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This eases out the angry/tired frown, sculpts the jaw and eyebrow, thereby reducing wrinkles dramatically.

While Botox effectively helps to flatten out creases on the face, Fillers are injectable substances that fill or add volume. They are injected into skin wrinkles and folds to plump them up. Basically, fillers restore lost volume. For example, you can use fillers to enhance lip volume and give your lips a more luscious look. You can also use them to fill out contour cheeks and the chin and jaw line. Using Botox and Fillers as a combination can really take years off your face and give you the makeover you want .

Effect of Botox and Fillers

For the final Botox results to show, it often takes 5-7 days. Some areas take as long as 2 weeks. The lines will continue to improve for up to 30 days and normally the results last for up to 4 months. If Fillers are also done, the results can last for as long as a year.

The question many have in mind is whether these treatments come with side-effects. Botox is FDA approved and safe. However, some side effects like swelling, light bruises, rash, itching, droopy eyelids can occur. Much of these effects are eliminated when the practitioner is an experienced one, and understands  the correct site to inject.
