Injectables Q & A
How does Botox work on the face?
Your facial muscles contract with every frown, smile, or laugh. As you age, these muscle contractions create permanent lines.
Botox is an injectable solution to relax your facial muscles and stop the muscle contractions. The injection works by intercepting brain signals before they reach your muscles.
After Botox, you can still make your usual facial expressions, but your muscles will contract less, preventing unwanted lines in your skin.
What wrinkles does Botox treat?
Botox is an ideal solution to address:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines between your brows
If you have deep lines, the team at Meridian Plastic Surgery suggests pairing your Botox injections with fillers, an injectable gel to fill lines and restore volume.
How do injectable fillers work?
Most fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane, are a synthetic hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body, responsible for attracting moisture. Injections of hyaluronic acid leave your skin looking naturally smoother and plumper.
What are my options for injectable fillers?
Meridian Plastic Surgery provides a full selection of injectable fillers, of which each addresses various effects of aging. For example, an injectable called Voluma® helps to restore volume in your cheeks.
Another option is Juvéderm Volbella®, which Meridian Plastic Surgery may recommend to plump up your lips and soften lines around your mouth.
When will I have results with injectables?
Your results depend on the type of injectable. Dermal fillers are fast-acting and tend to last the longest. You may have a bit of swelling at your injection site, but that subsides in a day or so.
Botox is also fast-acting and lasts around four months. While mild swelling or redness at the injection sites is normal, that subsides quickly. You should see optimal results within 48 hours of your Botox injections.
