BOTOX® / Dermal Fillers

BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers injections

Botox injections, wrinkle treatment, eye lift for cosmetic use, as BOTOX® is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world, it has a variety of different medical purposes. BOTOX® is the most tested product in the world and has been used in medicine for over 20 years for the effective treatment of a wide range of medical conditions. BOTOX® is a purified protein that is found in the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium. When injected into targeted muscles, it acts to block nerve impulses, consequently inhibiting muscle activity. This result has proven to be beneficial for a variety of medical conditions as well as cosmetic uses.

Dermal Fillers over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of fullness and elasticity. Health care professionals can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds and adding volume to sunken skin with dermal filler.Most dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based, soft injectable gels that are used to replenish and refresh your appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, which combines with the water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume and reduce lines and wrinkles. It is non-animal based, highly biocompatible, is absorbed slowly by the body and has been shown to stimulate natural collagen production. Best of all, the results are instant and natural-looking.

Contour correction has reached such a level these days that specialists can literally mould the desired shape of the face, and create high cheekbones, a perfectly smooth transition from the nasolabial and nasolacrimal folds to the cheeks, attractive and expressive lips, and a firm Hollywood chin.

Modern fillers are made from high-viscosity gel with a hyaluronic acid base and are similar to stable facial implants in their features: they maintain their shape, do not shift around after insertion and provide an excellent result for a long time. Using gels for facial contouring avoids the disadvantages of implants, such as tactile palpability (although it happens very rarely) and the possibility of rejection by the individual's body. Fillers are used for facial and lip contouring, and contour correction of nasolabial folds using different gels is very popular.

The hyaluronic acid present in the gels attracts water molecules, moisturizing and smoothing out the skin from within, and the firmness formula literally pushes the tissues up, returning them to their "younger" position.

For all contouring corrections (cheekbones, lips, face, nasolabial folds),we uses cutting-edge sparing cosmetic needles with a tapered tip, which makes the procedure more comfortable and painless. The soft touch of the needle feels like it pushes aside the skin and tissues, without cutting through vessels and nerves. This means that in the evening after the procedure you will already be able to go out, and no one will notice any traces of aesthetic work. You can be photographed at any angle and the shape of the face will be perfect, with no traces of contouring seen in the photo.

CHEEKBONES - When correcting cheekbones, specialist cosmeticians use the individual characteristics of the person's face, and their own subtle aesthetic sense, to ensure that the new appearance matches the person's self-perception.

CHIN - The importance of the chin in one's appearance is often underestimated. Meanwhile, it is a vital part, which influences how fit and fresh the whole face appears. A weak or receding chin doesn't "maintain" the lower part of the face as well: the facial contour loses shape faster, there is a reduction in the neck angle, wrinkles appear in the form of second and third chins. Contouring of the chin and lower part of the face, when done at the right time, maintains a clear outline and thus allows a person to retain a youthful appearance for years to come.

MIDDLE PART OF THE FACE - There are a number of age-related manifestations, which can hardly be called wrinkles - creases and folds in the nasolabial and nasolacrimal areas.

OTHER CORRECTIONS - We have extensive experience in unique contouring procedures, such as non-surgical rhinoplasty, creating attractive dimples in cheeks and chin, creating a slight youthful swelling under the end of the eyebrows, removing scarred and pitting tissue on the face and body. Lip contouring is particularly popular.


FAQ

  • Lips and Chin
  • Smoker's, marionette and nasolabialinesl lines

  • Cheeks and jaw

How do I know if I'm a good candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX treatments are customized for each patient, and there is no single method that fits all facial types. There are a lot of elements that need to be taken into account, such as whether the face is male or female, eyebrow shape, facial structure, dimension and length of forehead. The talented medical injectors at LuxBright Medica have experience in treating hundreds of thousands of patients with different backgrounds using specific techniques that result in a natural result.
BOTOX works best for certain individuals in facial rejuvenation. It's been designed, mainly, for people that do not have any history of neuromuscular disease (like multiple sclerosis and others) and are consenting adults. Candidates that can benefit most from BOTOX treatment are physically and mentally healthy and willing to deal with the side effects that can arise following their procedure (like temporary swelling or drooping at the injection site). Patients should also be able to comfortably spend the money that undergoing a properly-administered BOTOX treatment requires.

The ideal candidate also understands the limitations of the treatment and can go into their procedure without harbouring unrealistic expectations. For example, it may not be effective in areas where a permanent crease has already formed, such as a nasolabial fold, or if added volume is desired, as is the case of lip augmentation. BOTOX effects can vary from person to person and patients that expect a sudden, drastic resolution to their skin problems may be disappointed if their treatment's results don't live up to expectations. An ideal BOTOX candidate should be patient and willing to undergo follow-up sessions that allow them to enjoy the results they desire.

Who is NOT suitable for BOTOX?

Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, as well as people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients. If you were allergic to Dysport, then there is a high chance of being allergic to BOTOX as well because of how similar these drugs are with each other.

Check with your doctor regarding the medications you're currently taking as well. Certain products may interfere with BOTOX results and, if these medications can't be temporarily halted, the procedure may not be right for you.

Most of us want to be as prepared as possible for any type of procedure — even one as routine and speedy as a BOTOX injection. Learning about the subject beforehand makes it easier to dismiss fears and ensure that you're moving forward with the best plan of action for your situation.

There are a few physical attributes that can make for a non-ideal BOTOX candidate. Treatment isn't recommended for people with thick facial skin, drooping eyelids and eyelid droop (a condition called ptosis), weakness in the muscles to be injected, extremely deep scars on the face, facial asymmetry and the presence of skin disorders or conditions in the areas where BOTOX is to be targeted. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, like Lambert-Eaton syndrome, BOTOX may not be suitable for you.

Patients that choose to undergo a BOTOX treatment must also be prepared to experience a few side effects. If the idea of mild to moderate inflammation, swelling or minor procedural pain cause you to doubt your plans for treatment then it may be worthwhile to consider whether these temporary, negative aspects of BOTOX outweigh the benefits it can have for your appearance.

How long does a BOTOX procedure take?

BOTOX treatment varies in length depending on how many areas you'd like to target and how much correction is desired. On average, one treatment takes approximately 15-25 minutes. The injection is performed by a medical professional who is licensed and authorized to administer BOTOX, with extensive hands-on experience. With the experienced medical aestheticians at LuxBright Medica, and with the help of latest techniques and methods, we can ensure that your treatment will be performed in a safe and meticulous manner.

Since there is no downtime – you can do it during your lunch break – and no one would know you have had it done!

How long does BOTOX last? Is it permanent?

No – BOTOX Cosmetic is not permanent. Within two or three days after your injections, the muscles that produce frown lines lose their ability to contract. For the next three months or so after you're treated, you can't frown even if you try. After that, the effect gradually decreases until muscles return to normal about six months after the treatment, which can then be repeated. If you follow the directions given to you and book your first 3 appointments promptly every 3 months (without waiting in between!) you can eventually increase the duration results of each treatment. There are no long term effects.

Risks and dangers you should be aware of before your treatment.

With any cosmetic medical treatment, there are risks that are associated with BOTOX that you should know about. While the occurrences of these risks are rare, it's important that you're aware of them. Medical attention should be sought immediately if any of the following are experienced:
• swallowing difficulties (especially if the platysma muscle has been targeted)
• dizziness
• feeling faint
• speaking difficulties

Some people believe that Botox is a poison, but it is not. In small doses, it is therapeutic.

When should I get BOTOX before a big event?

Patients often get Botox before an important occasion, so they can look their best. If you are planning to do the same, you should consider getting the treatment done a couple of weeks before the date. For example, you can get Botox 3 weeks before a wedding. That would give you enough time for any swelling and bruising to subside, if they happen to occur. About 5 days after your treatment, you should see some improvement, since it can take this long for the Botox to start to work.
