Filler and Botox
How often have you stood in front of the mirror and examined each wrinkle, each crease, every flaw wondering how the heck did they get there and wishing there was something you could do to get rid of it? In our day and age, some people turn to the quick fixes like fillers and Botox. And if you haven’t tried it yet, and you have questions, you have come to the right place! If we haven’t answered your questions by the end of the post, send us an e-mail and we will be happy to answer your questions.
When done correctly (Thank you Dr. Pavlou) you will look well rested, and still able to show emotion (maybe not so much the frowning one! Who wants that anyway!) For me, I love my laugh lines – So I stick with Botox on my forehead and between my eyes – say goodbye to frowning for this girl! Do you believe they work the same way? If so you are incorrect! Fillers fill! Botox relaxes the muscles that create the wrinkles.
Can you get addicted to Botox?
The answer – yes! It is not addicted per say … however, the results you get, you will become addicted to it.
Will I look fake looking and like those ‘girls in Hollywood who look plastic?’
With this one, it all depends on the doctor. Dr. Pavlou will not have anyone walk out of the office looking unnatural. He only gives you what you need, nothing more, nothing less. You are in good hands!
How long will Botox last?
That is a great question and one we get asked in our lab often. The results will vary for this one! Some people it will last 3 months, others 6 months. It all depends on the muscle retention, and very hard for us to give you an exact amount.
I’ve heard somewhere that I can reverse Filler, is that true?
You are absolutely right! Hyaluronic acid fillers (Juvederm,Restylane for example), there is a reversing agent called hyaluronidase that breaks up the hyaluronic acid. It diminished the filler completely!
