Botox treatment can erase crow’s feet, frown & forehead lines as it softens your appearance, so you look younger and refreshed without surgery and downtime. It usually takes only a few days to work as it begins to settle in the injection site. And its effects can last four to six months. You’ll need future treatments as your facial muscles begin to contract again and lines and wrinkles return. But Botox trains those muscles to relax. So over time, any lines and wrinkles will become less evident.
How does Botox work?
Botox Cosmetic blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles to form. Ziba Med Spa is proud to offer top quality aesthetic services include the popular Botox injections, helping to eliminate the visible signs of aging.
What is Xeomin used for?
Xeomin is a cosmetic anti-wrinkle injection. It is used for erasing wrinkles and smoothing skin much like Botox, but its popularity as a preventative treatment has increased. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons are seeing more and more young patients requesting injections of botulinum before wrinkles even develop.
What happens when Xeomin is injected?
The botulinum neurotoxin is injected into treatment sites and dense liquid passes through the muscles and blocks the nerve pulses that are responsible for telling microvascular movements to occur within the face. When the brain sends a signal, it travels through neurotransmitters to the muscle. Simple, unnecessary movements of the face that cause wrinkles can be stopped. It is important to understand that this doesn’t mean patients will not be able to use the muscles in their face, but it will instead stop some movements that are not necessary to facial expressions.
Say “no” to sagging skin. As you age, your body loses collagen, elastin, and fat, which cause your youthful appearance to disappear. You may notice deep folds begin to develop around your nose and mouth, as well as cheek skin begins to sag. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Radiesse, reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Read more about how dermal fillers can restore volume and enhance your natural features.
Loss of facial volume is one of the biggest challenges facing aging men and women, but thankfully there is a dynamic new filler called Radiesse that can plump, invigorate and restore hollow cheeks and a lackluster complexion. Radiesse relies on minute doses of calcium hydroxylapatite, compounds that hydrate and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out while triggering the growth of new collagen.
Juvederm is one of the most widely used dermal fillers today. It is a gel like substance that contains hyaluronic acid which is a biodegradable substance found naturally in our bodies. It is often used for the nasolabial folds (smile lines), jowls and to enhance the lips, cheeks, and chin. Juvederm is known to last anywhere from 6-12 months.
Belotero is a dermal filler made by Merz Pharmaceuticals. This filler is similar to Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and Silicone, all fillers that Dr. Zahedy has expertise in. Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a vital function in our skin. It rehydrates your skin while integrating with your dermal tissue to provide evenness and enhance facial contours to give you natural looking results. It is administered to treat fine lines around areas such as the eyes and mouth, cheekbones, lips, the back of hands, bridge of noses, and frown lines.
