How Long Does Botox Last?
The optimal results from Botox can be seen within approximately 2 weeks, although, the effect of the Botox can be observed for 3 to 6 months . The efficacy is dose-dependent and will vary between individuals due to muscle arrangement and the frequency of Botox treatment. Periodic re-treatment of Botox is necessary to maintain the effects of wrinkle reduction. In some cases, the effects of Botox will gradually lessen, resulting in reduced efficacy in muscle paralysis over time. Your practitioner at Omniya Clinic London will provide expert treatment guidance in this regard.
There is strong scientific evidence in support of the successful use, efficacy and tolerability of Botox ® in glabellar frown lines. Trials also confirmed that many subjects that have had Botox respond better after a second or a third treatment session. It is important to have realistic expectations in relation to the results to be expected. However, it is generally accepted worldwide that Botox treatment does produce a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the skin, with rejuvenation and anti-ageing effects seen by individuals that have sought Botox treatment by expert clinicians.
How Does Botox Compare To Dermal Fillers?
Both Botox and dermal fillers involve injections; however, this is where the similarity ends. In contrast to the relaxing effect that Botox has on muscles, dermal fillers involve the filling of small lines, wrinkles, creases and folds. The dermal filler treatment involves injections that are given just beneath the skin surface and contain products that aim to add fullness to areas that may have become thinner. Dermal fillers treatment may also be sought for personal aesthetic preference. The products used will frequently contain molecules that are known to have anti-ageing or skin-plumping effects, and the products contained in the treatment will determine the outcome of the results.
Areas for dermal filler treatment commonly include around the cheeks, the mouth or lips, and the increase in volume in the selected area can produce a more youthful appearance due to the restructuring and volumising effect of dermal fillers.
The choice between Botox and the dermal fillers will be dependent on the desired result, cost and suitability. The cost of dermal fillers can be more than Botox; however, the effects may last longer. Your
