LIQUID FACELIFT – Part 1
Need a little lift? This month we’ll be discussing : “The liquid facelift” – a mini make-over with botox and dermal fillers
Firstly for that just had a holiday relaxed refreshed look I inject botox into the frown, forehead, crow’s feet and also into the bunny lines on the nose to relax the muscles and hence soften the lines. For those that have just joined us: botox or Botulinum Toxin A is a protein and neuorotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. These bacteria release a neurotoxin protein which causes paralysis of the muscles which allows the muscles to relax which gives the appearance that wrinkles have softened or disappeared.
Botox is such a superb anti-ageing and wrinkle treatment. It is extremely preventative as it stops muscle movement so the muscles can’t cause those little crinkle wrinkle lines – especially the worry one’s. Even if you only have it twice a year you will still see the anti-ageing effects. Don’t forget to “Like” my page please and share too if you find anything interesting! @ Dr Stasi Botha
For a natural aesthetic result, fillers are incorporated into areas that have lost fat, muscle and general elasticity of tissue. Fillers can fill in wrinkles but they are especially fabulous for areas where volume loss has occurred. They can literally be placed anywhere i.e. around the eye, the cheek bone area, around the mouth and even along the jaw line.
The liquid face-lift is a costly procedure so I generally advocate that treatments be spaced a few months apart so treatment is then affordable, less down time is required as bruising may occur and also so that you don’t have that “just done look”
