FACIAL AESTHETICS

ANTI WRINKLE TREATMENTS

 

Anti-wrinkle treatments and muscle relaxant injections are popular among those who are looking to achieve a younger looking and rejuvenated appearance.

Anti-wrinkle treatments and muscle relaxant injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. As a person ages, repeated facial muscle movements result in the formation of deep facial lines. By undergoing anti-wrinkle treatments, including muscle relaxant injections, the wrinkles that were caused by repeated muscle movement can be softened. At AGLP we have qualified and trained dentist to provide these treatments for you.

 Anyone with lines and wrinkles alongside the nose (scrunch lines), around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the forehead (worry lines) and between the eyebrows (frown lines) is a potential candidate for anti-wrinkle treatment. 

These treatments last in average of 3-6 months. 


DERMAL FILLERS

 

Dermal fillers are a sugar-based product that is used to replace lost volume and fill facial folds and wrinkles, creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Soft dermal fillers are also used to enhance lips and restore the ageing lip.

Derma fillers help to fill in facial wrinkles, restoring skin to a smoother appearance. Most dermal fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body.

FAQs

 



Q:How does BOTOX work?


BOTOX targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.


Q:Will BOTOX make me look like I’ve had work done?


BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.


Q:Does BOTOX treatment hurt?


Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.


Q:What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?


Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow's feet studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX Please talk to your specialist about any concern.


Q:How long does the treatment take?


Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.


Q:What is the average treatment cost?


Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.


Q:When will I see results?


You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.


Q:How many injections will I receive?


For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.


Q:How long is the recovery time after treatment?

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.


Q:Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

Yes. BOTOX has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow's feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2014 were on men—that is more than 1 million cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.
