The Wonderful World of Botox and Fillers
Botox is a medically produced drug injected underneath the skin. Botox treats muscular conditions, but it is also used for cosmetic purposes to reduce wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. A botox injection lasts four to six months, then the muscles will slowly return to normal. The wrinkles will become visible again, and the area can be retreated after this period. The more botox treatments, the less wrinkles will show due to the muscles being trained to stay relaxed. Botox injections from Dr. Wooming’s Dallas office can be an alternative to cosmetic surgery, and if retreated often, they can lead to wrinkle-free skin.
The most popular botox areas are the glabella, or the skin between your eyes, the forehead and crow’s feet, however, Dr. Wooming offers several more botox treatment areas at his Dallas office. Other areas where you can receive botox are the bunny lines on the nose when it’s scrunched, the lips, the marionette lines in the corners of the mouth, the soles of the feet, and the hands to prevent hyperhidrosis.
Fillers, or dermal fillers, are soft tissue fillers that add volume to your face without the cost and downtime of surgery. Often referred to as a “liquid facelift,” fillers can be applied to the lips, contours or facial creases and wrinkles. Filler treatments must also be repeated to maintain their effect.
Dr. Wooming also offers several treatment options for fillers at his Dallas location. Dermal fillers can be placed in the cheeks, chin, lips, nasal folds and the bridge of the nose. Fillers can also be applied to the earlobes for plumping and acne scars to make them less visible. Dr. Wooming offers Voluma and Belotero brand fillers. Belotero fillers can be used for crow’s feet and the temples.
