Can you take a minute to look at the mirror? Are you pleased with what you see? Do people keep asking you if you’re getting enough sleep? Do you get scared when your birthday approaches? If your answer is yes to it all then Botox and fillers are the solutions you need. 

I bet you must have heard about Botox and fillers but it is a bit odd that even in these modern times, there still seems to be some form of stigma attached to them. It’s been noticed that most of these stem from little or no knowledge about them. Aging as we all know is inevitable and although we need to embrace this beautiful natural process, we should not do so at the expense of our self-esteem. Do you know Botox and fillers can take up to 10 years off your look?! 

As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. At birth, we have a lot of hyaluronic acid in our body, but as we get older it diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. 

There are three different types of facial wrinkles which each largely determine the kind of treatment. 

- First, dynamic lines (or mimic lines) are caused by the movement of muscles. 

- The second group, static lines are visible when your face doesn’t move. 

- The last group, gravitational folds are usually deeper furrows resulting from a combination of loss of volume and gravitation e.g nasolabial folds running from your nose to the corners of your mouth. As we get older, our faces tend to lose fat. This loss of volume leads to an envelope of loose skin which gravitation pulls downwards hence the folds which look like sags. This is where the use of Botox and fillers come into place.

You should consider these injectable if you look older or more tired than you feel and wish to improve the appearance of: 

  • Nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth) 
  • Marionette lines (pronounced crease that run from the corners of the mouth down along the chin) 
  • Sagging, flat cheeks 
  • Hollows under the eyes 
  • Creases and furrows on your forehead 
  • Wrinkles around the eyes and lips 
Local anaesthesia is used to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Each injection takes only a few seconds, and the entire procedure lasts between 30-45 minutes in most cases. The results will begin to appear immediately however, improvements will continue as the days go by. Expect a natural, subtle look that would keep everyone guessing. No recovery time is necessary and you can return to your normal activities right away.
