Our Hervey Bay practice offers botox and fillers.
What is Botox?
Botox is a medication that can only be prescribed to you by a healthcare professional. It is used as a temporary treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Botox treatments are quick and comfortable, and within hours you will begin to notice a difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
How does Botox work?
Botox helps to relax the muscles beneath the skin, so that fine lines and wrinkles become less visible, giving the skin a healthy, more youthful appearance.
Depending on each individual case, the results can last between three and six months. Treatment is temporary, and once the Botox begins to wear off, the skin will return to the way it looked before treatment.
Botox is also used to relieve symptoms of clenching and grinding. In each case, Botox is used to reduce the amount of stress placed on the teeth and jaws so that patients feel comfortable and confident.
The most common areas are the frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and “crows feet” around the edges of the eyes.
What are Fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular means to help reverse the changes associated with ageing. Because the goal is to return the skin to its original youthful state, dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Dermal fillers can be used to reduce wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
As our skin ages it gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin.
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to fill in lines, wrinkles, and scars. Unlike face lifts that stretch the skin, fillers add volume for a more natural, youthful appearance.
Fillers can also increase the fullness of the lips and lessen the downward slant of the corner of lips. The most common areas treated are the lips.
