This non surgical procedure improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and the so-called crow’s feet of the side of the eyes. These lines that appear are a result of muscle movement over time. Botox® has a longstanding record of safety. Botox® blocks chemicals that cause the facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. The effects typically last 3-4 months. No specific preparation is required before treatment, and there is no downtime.
Products known as fillers, injected into the skin, can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin, compensating for age-related loss of fat and texture. In addition, fillers can be used to various facial wrinkles, lines and folds. At Laser Light Treatment Center, the injection of fillers is accomplished by only one highly trained nurse, chosen partly for her artistic abilities, and with close physician monitoring.
No special preparation or precautions are needed before the injection of fillers. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes. Some minor and transient redness, bruising, or swelling may occur at or near the injection sites. Expect no downtime with this procedure, which is sometimes accomplished along with Botox injections.
