It is not an attractive sight to have worry lines across your forehead or the laugh lines around your mouth. Instead of going under the knife, try the tested and proven injectable options and dermal fillers. They can deliver natural, youthful results without the need for more invasive procedures. At Love Medical Spa in Portland, Oregon, we can help determine the right option for your skin if you decide to give these treatments a try.
Tox® is a popular cosmetic injectable that works to freeze muscle movement and improves wrinkles and lines on your forehead, eyes, and mouth. Tox injections cause only slight discomfort and require no downtime. Based on the brand of Tox employed for your injections, you can observe an improvement in your look within a week, and your results may last up to four months.
Dermal fillers are designed to fill in areas of your face that experience volume loss, aging signs, and scarring. Tox is injected into the muscle, whereas dermal fillers are placed under the skin. Tox has additional medical benefits, such as easing muscle spasms and migraine headaches.
Your nose is one of the most prominent features of your face. Even the slightest abnormalities can be distracting and noticeable. Nose fillers can help restore balance and symmetry to your nose, creating a more attractive overall appearance. Filler injections are a great way to quickly correct minor imperfections on your nose without any downtime or invasive procedures.
Nose fillers are a safe cosmetic procedure when performed correctly and by a trained professional. The filler is injected in small amounts underneath the skin to reshape the nose without surgery or downtime. Patients can return to their daily activities directly after their treatment is complete. However, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and/or discomfort at the injection sites. This should subside within a few weeks of treatment.
Patients should keep in mind that the results from dermal fillers are not permanent; they typically last around 9-12 months. To maintain your results, you can schedule follow-up procedures after your initial treatment. Since the effects of these procedures are temporary, patients will need to undergo additional treatments to maintain their desired results. Patients who have this procedure done should not expect a dramatic change in the appearance of their nose, as the goal is to subtly improve their overall facial appearance.
The various fillers can address almost all cosmetic concerns. Injectables are often utilized to enhance facial plastic surgery results, including neck lift or facelift. Some of the most common issues that can be treated with injectables include:
Most injectables show their effects in two to three weeks after your procedure. You will most likely notice improvement immediately based on the treated area and the injectable used. Some people may suffer mild bruising and swelling, which will ease soon and deliver a youthful appearance. Some injectable treatments have to be repeated once every few months, while others last a year or longer.
Dermal fillers will add extra volume to tissue but not reduce or eliminate excess sagging skin. They provide temporary effects and must be repeated regularly to maintain the wanted impact. Our team will evaluate your needs and recommend a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results. Some dermal fillers are combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as Tox injections.
The dermal fillers process involves cleaning the area and applying a local anesthetic to numb the site. Then the filler injection is administered, taking a few seconds per site. An ice pack will reduce any temporary discomfort.
