Aesthetics Q & A
What type of aesthetic treatments are available?
Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic offers BOTOX® and dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Years of repeated muscle contractions cause some of the creases on your face. Botox injections consist of a purified form of the botulinum toxin, which temporarily paralyzes those muscles. When the underlying muscles relax, so do the visible wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to volumize and fill in your facial features, such as your lips and cheeks. Fillers also help lift away wrinkles as they plump up the skin.
What happens during treatment?
Your doctor as Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic has you comfortably rest as they prepare your skin for treatment. They assess your features and mark the injection sites with a pen.
Then, they inject the needle into the treatment area and administer some of the solution. They continue injecting the solution as they draw the needle back toward the puncture site.
You may feel a prick as the needle enters your skin and you can feel pressure as your doctor performs the treatment, but most adults find the procedure very tolerable.
Your doctor then massages the treatment area to get the desired effect and repeats the process on the other side. You might experience some slight discomfort after the treatment, such as tenderness and swelling, but this dissipates quickly.
You should also see some noticeable results right after the treatment, especially with dermal fillers. Botox goes into full effect after a week or two and lasts up to six months.
Tell your doctor right away if you notice a droopy eyelid or smile, asymmetrical results, signs of infection, allergic reaction, or any other odd side effects.
Why do people get Botox and dermal fillers?
Women and men often turn to Botox and fillers to reduce the signs of aging and rejuvenate their appearance.
Botox and fillers provide some of the most significant improvements to your features you can get without surgery. Injections are popular because they’re quick, safe, rather painless, and require no downtime.
Injectables like Botox have been around for decades, making them one of the most reliable and accepted ways to enhance your features. Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic has experienced practitioners whose hands make the treatment that much more dependable.
