Fillers (Restylane and Juvederm)



Fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to replenish the collagen layer, filling lines, wrinkles and scars from the inside out. Fillers can temporarily restore a smoother, more youthful appearance. Fillers can also be used to add definition to the lip border. Collagen provides structure to your skin while hyaluronic acid provides skin volume. Collagen dermal fillers have been proven safe and effective for more than 20 years.

FAQs

Normally your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles instructing them to contract and produce movement. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking these messages from being received by the muscle that has been injected. The muscle relaxes, and the overlying wrinkle is diminished or erased. This procedure provides predictable and reliable relief of symptoms.
BOTOX® Cosmetic administration is one of many procedures that may be performed safely in the office by Dr. Manish Patel. A fine needle is used to inject the involved muscles. Some patients report very minor and temporary discomfort during treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic may be used to treat forehead lines, frown lines (between the eyebrows), crow?s feet (next to the eyes), smile or laugh lines (around the mouth and eyes), and banding that sometimes occurs in the neck.
Effects are usually seen within a few days and reach maximum benefit by fourteen days following injection.
It is important to remember that BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent solution for troubling wrinkles because the effects are not permanent. For many patients, however, the effects have been quite dramatic. Although individual results vary, the results achieved from a single treatment usually last three to six months. You will notice a gradual fading of the effects. When you begin to notice the effects subsiding, you may choose to make another appointment with Dr. Manish Patel for further injections.
To maintain the effects, treatments are usually required two to three times a year. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment may be repeated indefinitely. Currently BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used safely for over ten years worldwide. Acceptable safety in long-term treatment has been well established.
