Botox is a purified protein that when injected temporarily blocks nerves which relaxes muscles to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Within 3-5 days, the treated muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. Botox injections only take a few minutes and the remain effective for 3-6 months.
Threads are used to smooth wrinkled, crepey skin by replacing collagen and elastin to restore a healthy foundation to skin. Threads, which are absorbable, will build natural collagen and give skin a healthy glow through biostimulation. Threads are fully absorbed in about 4-6 months for results lasting up to 12-24 months. Threads are often used along with dermal fillers.
Threads work in 2 ways:
- Building collagen through the body’s natural healing process
- Creating biostimulation so the skin develops better blood flow which will tighten the skin to improve texture and appearance
There are 2 types of Threads:
- Smooth Threads bring back lost blood flow to the area which will repair and tighten the skin and build collagen leading to a refreshed youthful appearance.
- Lifting Threads are used to produce an immediate visible lift to sagging skin which will continue to get better over a 6 month period. Lifting Threads are designed to restore the beautiful “V” shape to the face.
About Dermal Fillers
As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen which provides structure and volume to the face. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. Dermal Fillers are smooth injectable gels made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid. Dermal Fillers add volume to deficient areas to restore the face to a more natural youthful appearance. Immediate results can be seen in just one short procedure, which lasts up to 6 months.
Botox, Threads and Dermal Fillers can achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance, while still having freedom of expression. Combine this with teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, anterior crowns or Invisalign, to quickly achieve a refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated total facial esthetic.
