Dermal Fillers and Botox Offer Youthful Skin Before the Holidays
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Genaro Valladolid, offers various dermal fillers to improve under-eye bags, thin lips, facial lines and wrinkles, and cheek fullness. Botox can smooth dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. People who look perpetually tired, angry, or sad may benefit from Botox or dermal fillers for a refreshed, well-rested appearance.
Injectables Offer Instant or Fast Improvements Before the Holidays
Dermal fillers and Botox are excellent ways to address cosmetic concerns before the holidays. Most dermal fillers provide immediate results with more facial fullness, dewy skin, and fewer lines and wrinkles. These may contain synthetic hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite that fills in lines and wrinkles and restore volume in the cheeks and temples for a youthful appearance. Fillers work well for sunken cheeks, uneven lips, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and mildly loose skin.
Botox doesn’t provide immediate results but improves lines and wrinkles within a few days of the injectable treatment. That’s because Botox works by temporarily immobilizing the muscles underneath the skin that cause wrinkles after years of repetitive movements. It takes a few days for the targeted muscles to weaken and the skin to smooth. Full Botox results are visible within 10 to 14 days.
In the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Valladolid, Botox and dermal fillers provide natural-looking results and facial expressions. Your friends and family will notice your softer, more youthful complexion but likely won’t realize you had cosmetic treatments. Botox is the perfect anti-wrinkle treatment for the holiday season because results last three to four months. Dermal filler results may last 12 months or longer, depending on the facial concern and type of filler.
No Downtime or Recovery
Botox and dermal fillers are known as lunchtime procedures because you can return to work or your regular routine right after your appointment at Valladolid Plastic Surgery. Many people have injectables over their break from work. There are some limitations, such as no intense physical activities for one to two days to minimize swelling and bruising. After dermal filler treatment, you may have an overfilled appearance that improves within a few days. Redness or hypersensitivity in the treated area is normal.
Patients with Botox treatment should wait at least 24 hours to exercise and avoid lying down for four hours after their appointment. Avoid rubbing or massaging the area to prevent the botulinum toxin from migrating to another face area and causing unintended facial drooping.
