When it comes to refreshing your appearance, Botox is an excellent choice, especially if you do not want to undergo surgery. Dr. Bounds carefully injects Botox into specific areas of the face, like the forehead and near the eyes. These wrinkles are often caused by contractions in the muscle, and Botox is designed to relax these muscles so that no wrinkles can form. This convenient treatment can be completed in a matter of minutes and requires no downtime. Results are often noticeable in days and last for months after treatment. To sustain your results, follow-up treatments at regular intervals are recommended.
Aging skin is not only defined by wrinkles but also loss of volume in the face. This can contribute to an older appearance. When this is the case, dermal fillers can help. Many filler options are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. During treatment, filler is injected into the skin to plump up areas that need a boost of volume. Certain dermal fillers can even be used to enhance thin lips, providing a youthful and attractive lip contour that complements the rest of the face. Because of its plumping effect, dermal fillers are also used to create a smooth skin surface and reduce wrinkles. Like Botox, filler injections are a quick treatment that allows patients to get back to their normal routines without missing a beat.
Those with concerns about aging may be interested in addressing several cosmetic concerns at once. Dr. Bounds designs customized treatment plans for each of his patients, allowing them to receive the best treatment or combination of treatments at the most appropriate time to yield favorable results.
