INJECTION (Botox®, Lip Enhancement
Collagen Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that reduces and smoothes facial
lines, wrinkles, and/or scars by injecting natural collagen into the support layer
beneath the skin. It is done in the doctors office and offers immediate
results. The procedure is generally well tolerated and patients can return to
their normal activities immediately. Collagen is a natural substance which will
eventually be reabsorbed by the body. Therefore, ongoing treatments are required
to maintain the desired look.
Lip Enhancement treatments use a variety of injectable solutions that give lips
a fuller and firmer appearance. This procedure is done in the doctors office
and offers immediate results. Lip Enhancement solutions range from temporary treatments
that decrease in a few weeks to results that are permanent.
Botox® is an extract that is used to soften deep frown or worry
lines that show up between the eyebrows. The extract produces a localized muscle
paralysis which causes the muscle to relax and soften. The treatment is done in
the doctors office and takes between two to three days to reach the best
results. The initial effects last for an average of three to six months before
another treatment is needed. Multiple treatments can lengthen the duration of
the desired results between Botox® injections.
