How Long Will My Botox Results Last?

Botox is a dermal injectable that targets muscles that causes wrinkles -- forcing them to relax. The result is smoother skin and less visible wrinkles. It is different than other dermal fillers that instead add volume to the face or skin. Botox works by targeting your muscles of expression, relaxing them, and diminishing the appearance of unwanted lines and furrows, produced by age, stress and worry. Most patients see results from Botox approximately 72 hours and up to 7 days after treatment. Botox has long-lasting positive effects for 3-4 months and wears off slowly. Keeping up with injections on a regular basis, before lines and wrinkles reappear, trains the treated muscles to contract less often so that lines appear smoother. Waiting 3-4 months between treatments also ensures the face has a natural appearance and doesn’t look overdone or stretched. Many patients who have never tried Botox before are relieved to hear it is not permanent. Your results also depend on the amount of Botox administered. Those with less noticeable [...]

Best Cosmetic Procedure to Get Done Before a Wedding?

To say you’re thrilled for your upcoming nuptials would be a significant understatement.  You can’t wait for that moment where you’re walking down the aisle toward your loved one, ready to start a brand-new life together.  All eyes will be on you… And that’s why you want to look your absolute best for your big day! But before you start making appointments for cosmetic procedures, keep this in mind – many procedures should be timed in such a way where you still won’t be recovering from your treatment.  For example, many laser resurfacing treatments require a couple of weeks’ recovery for side effects to dissipate.  Even dermal fillers and Botox can lead to side effects like bruising, swelling, and slight bleeding.  In other words, if you leave these cosmetic treatments until the last minute, there’s a good chance your wedding photographs will have evidence of your cosmetic work! The best cosmetic procedure to get done before a wedding is a superficial treatment, like a facial or mild dermabrasion.  These can safely be performed a few weeks before the wedding, which [...]
