What are Botox Injections Used For?

Botox injections are primarily used for smoothing out wrinkles on the face, most notably lines and creases along the forehead, eye lines, and around the mouth. Aging skin produces marks on various parts of our bodies, which often happen without us realizing it. There are ways to counteract this; if someone starts early enough, they can avoid some amount of wrinkles in their future. However, it can be difficult to avoid any wrinkles, to the point where it is often not worth the effort. Not only that but if a person were to genuinely avoid any lines on their face at all, they would have to stop emoting. So while you are likely to develop wrinkles as you age, the extremity and amount will vary between individuals.

For those who want to make sure their wrinkles, lines, and creases are nowhere to be seen, botulinum toxin stands as a popular treatment in cosmetics. While easy to associate with older women who want to look younger, there is no real requirement that implies you must be older (or a woman) to have the procedure. You can be in your 30s and decide to get some Botox injections; after all, there are no real restrictions on how few or how many injections you get. If you’re younger, you may only want a couple for a few spots; if you’re older, you may want to make sure your entire forehead is covered.

While Botox injections have a reputation for being a cosmetic procedure, it can also be used for more serious medical ailments. Some of these ailments include neck spasms, which causes your neck muscles to contract. Muscle contractions in other parts of the body can also be taken care of with Botox, including eye twitching and cerebral palsy. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating, migraines, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction).

What Does Botox Do to Your Body?

Botox injections achieve their results by essentially putting cells on ice. What this means is that Botox is injected into your body and stops the reproduction of cells that cause the skin to reproduce. If this sounds too straightforward, rest assured that this is what Botox does and why it is so effective. By simply stopping the reproduction of certain cells, Botox is able to relax muscles and skin temporarily. In this way, a user can have smooth skin or be treated for a health ailment that causes them discomfort.

What Are the Long Term Effects of Botox Injections?

Long term effects of Botox can vary between individuals because of the way Botox procedures work. When you go to get a procedure done, the amount of injections is decided by the individual, and this can ultimately determine how long the treatment will last. If you decide on only a few Botox injections, the effects of Botox may only last a few months. This is fairly normal, as most people who get Botox get enough so that it can last between three and five months. However, this also means that, if you intend to get Botox and keep the results, you will have to go back every time it starts to wear off.

Depending on the strength and amount of injections, you can make Botox injections last for much longer than average, which can even mean up to one year. However, keep in mind that Botox is measured by the unit; the more units you wish to have injected, the more money it will cost. If you can afford it, you can get a decent amount of injections to ensure you are coming for touch-ups less often.

What Should You Do Before Botox?

There are a few things one should do before a Botox procedure, with the most vital being your choice of a doctor. You want to make sure that the doctor you choose is someone you can trust, you think is qualified, and will make you feel comfortable during the procedure. Additionally, you want to make sure everything is fully understood between you and your doctor, which means asking all the questions you have and fully explaining what it is you want to be done.

What Should You Not Do After Botox Injections?

Once you have completed your Botox procedure, there are a few things you should avoid doing. The most critical thing you should do, especially right after a procedure, is to leave your face alone. While you should put ice packs on the injection spots, that is the maximum face involvement you should be having. Do not rub, massage, or otherwise pick at your face immediately following your procedure. Additionally, make sure you take it easy afterwards, which means not doing anything strenuous, taking medications that thin your blood, increase your metabolism, or drinking too much alcohol.

What Are the Side-Effects of Botox?

The most common side-effects of Botox are actually quite normal. For example, a certain amount of pain is normal on the injection spots; redness and swelling should also be expected. Some people think some of these effects are a bad sign that the procedure was done improperly. Most notably, people think that bruising is a sign of a bad procedure when really it’s a regular occurrence that can happen to anyone. It should be noted that some bruising is immediate (occurs within a few hours of a procedure) while other times it can take weeks to show up.

Fillers.jpg

Mango Clinic services people all across the country in a variety of ways related to their health. Whether you need an emotional support animal letter or are looking to lose weight, our clinic and staff of physicians can assist you in making the right choices for you in the best possible way. As we are launching our cosmetic services, we would like to discuss how dermal fillers can benefit you and everything you need to know about the fillers.

For some, the wrinkles around their face are less than attractive; for others, muscle spasms of different types prevent them from living their best life. Both lines and spasms can be taken care of with injectables, such as the world famous Botox. However, there is one other helpful type of injectable treatment, and that is dermal fillers.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment which literally “fills” up whichever part is receiving the injection. They can be made from different kinds of materials and applied to areas of the face, most notably the lips and cheeks.

For most people, the entire purpose behind being injected with dermal fillers is to make their lips or cheeks appear fuller. The biggest reason for these targeted injections is that the skin in the cheeks or lips is thin or becomes thin over time with age. Volume enhances the skin, wrinkles, lines around the mouth, and between the eyes become smoothed out.

We should make it clear that dermal fillers are not like Botox. Where a product like Botox is designed to freeze cells in the body for a few months, fillers are made of a material that adds more mass underneath the skin. Along with the different materials that can be used, dermal fillers are known to last for anywhere between six months to a whole year.

What Are Dermal Fillers Made Of?

Common Fillers
Most common dermal fillers.

Where Botox is made up of a safe-to-use version of the bacterial component botulinum toxin, dermal fillers are made up of many different materials that are used by different brands. These materials should be FDA approved, come from recognized brands, and be handled by licensed physicians.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most popular and well-known material used for dermal fillers. It is a plasma substance, gooey, and gel-like, that is found naturally within the body; it keeps your skin feeling hydrated and full. Two of the biggest brands that use HA are Juvederm and Restylane, each with their own selection of branded products. The effects of HA can last anywhere between six and twelve months.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is similar to hyaluronic acid, in that they are both naturally occurring substances found within the body. CaHA is primarily located within the bones and is thicker than HA, as well as much smaller in its particle makeup. It can also last longer, typically for up to twelve months, and create smoother lines and wrinkles.

Among the stronger types of dermal fillers is Poly-L-lactic acid. This material’s primary purpose is to provide the body with collagen and thoroughly smooth out wrinkles. Its increased strength contributes to how long it can last; fillers made of Poly-L-lactic acid deliver results that last for over a year, even two years.

Even longer lasting are dermal fillers made up of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). When used for cosmetics, PMMA is in the form of microscopic balls that are injected and stay underneath the skin. Containing collagen, PMMA provides the skin with volume and support for many years. This is thanks to its ability to remain within the skin and provide a structure that sustains smoothness.

The only dermal filler procedure that also includes surgery is when you use fat from your own body as the material. While results can last much longer than others, the process is different than traditional injections, requiring much more care on the part of both the patient and the doctor performing the operation and injection.

What Can I Use Dermal Fillers For?

Various areas of your face could be enhanced by fillers.

For those simply wanting smoother and fuller skin, dermal fillers have proven themselves to be excellent options. You can get a smooth-skinned look without having to put your cells on ice for a short amount of time. Whichever type of filler you choose, it will feature a natural look and feel that is safe for your body.

As the types of fillers you can use vary, so do their uses. Around the lips and directly to the cheeks are among the most popular places. Around the eyes, underneath the chin, and even your hands are also options.

Getting into specifics, there are several things you can do with and around the cheeks. Enhancing the cheeks is likely what you want to do, but you can also fill in the nasolabial folds. This is an area that stretches from the nose to the lips on either side of your face; also known as smile or laugh lines, these areas can stretch and deepen over the years. The longevity of this type of injection can last for under or over a year, depending on the material.
