Botox and dermal fillers have long been two of the most popular treatments because they work quickly and can provide natural yet dramatic results. Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care offers a variety of neuromodulators and dermal fillers to achieve your goals. Zuzana Likar, a skin care expert, personally trains and manages staff so that you can rest easy knowing that you are in the best hands. We are much more than a MediSpa, and if you want lasting results that you love and deserve then you should only trust your treatments to highly-skilled professionals.
Of all neuromodulators, Botox is the most well-known. However, Dysport is another option that works similarly. Both temporarily freeze targeted muscles to minimize and prevent lines and wrinkles. Results last an average of 4 – 6 months. Botox can also be used for a variety of other purposes, such as providing a non-surgical and subtle “lift” to the brows and eyelids. It is also a popular way to reduce excessive sweating and even prevent migraines. Results from neuromodulators typically reveal themselves in full about one week after the treatment.
Dermal Filler Options
As we bid adieu to 2020 and look forward to a better year ahead, it is understandable that you also want to look your best. This can be achieved with dermal fillers, which can be placed in many areas of the face and even the tops of the hands. Dermal fillers restore or create volume that has been lost over the years (or was never present, but always desired). The lips are one of the most well-known places to inject dermal fillers, but these products can do much more than create a perfect pout.
Everyone loses the “good” fat in the face and tops of the hands with age. This can lead to a hollow appearance and make you look older and more tired than you are. Dermal fillers are commonly placed in the cheeks for a youthful lift, along the jawline for more pronunciation, and in the troughs below the eyes.
Skin that is taut, youthful, and clear is just one half of the equation for anti-aging. What happens below the skin’s surface also makes a difference. Our faces and bodies are constantly changing, and that lost volume in the face not only increases the appearance of wrinkles but also ages you in its own right. Dermal fillers can restore youthfulness using hyaluronic acid (HA). Most dermal fillers use HA, which is already synthesized naturally in the body. The results last on average about 6 – 18 months depending on the type of filler, location, and number of units used.
Make Botox and Fillers Part of a Rejuvenation Plan
Botox stops wrinkles, can provide lift, and dermal fillers give you volume—but what about the skin itself? The quality of the skin can only be moderately affected by Botox and dermal fillers, so pairing these treatments with laser or energy treatments is a comprehensive approach. These technologies improve the overall appearance of the skin and can further eliminate lines and wrinkles while also addressing redness, skin laxity, poor texture, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring.
A holistic approach to looking and feeling your best is simply the most effective way to get the results you want. Many clients opt for routine Botox and dermal filler treatments but might overlook laser and energy technologies. This is a mistake because only these devices actually treat the entire face, neck, chest, and other parts of the body. The skin is the biggest organ you have and it deserve a complete treatment supported by procedures like Botox and dermal fillers.
Start Your 2021 Look Now
After months of self-isolating and seeing yourself on Zoom calls, it’s time to prepare for a post-pandemic appearance. Results from Botox and dermal fillers take about one week to be appreciated, but full results from laser and energy treatments can take a bit longer. Most clients require up to six laser or energy treatments, and it can take 3 – 6 months to enjoy the full results. The timing is perfect for a summer vacation if you start taking action right now. Plus, Botox and dermal filler treatments right now will give you nearly-instant results with maintenance treatments in six months to align with your laser or energy results.
