Botox is an extremely commonly used treatment — for good reason. This very quick procedure can help you restore youthfulness to your face. But how does Botox work?
Botox is used to target dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that form in places where your face is active, like the lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and smile lines. When Botox is injected into those areas, it paralyzes the muscles underneath. Because those muscles stay still, the wrinkle becomes significantly less pronounced.
Dr. Roba also offers XEOMIN®, another brand of dynamic wrinkle treatment. The results from both Botox and Xeomin usually last between three and six months.
While Botox and Xeomin are effective for treating dynamic wrinkles, you need an alternate solution for static wrinkles. These lines usually form on the lower half of your face as you age and aren’t connected to any facial movement. Because freezing the muscle underneath static wrinkles wouldn’t significantly impact their appearance, Zinnia Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Clinic also offers dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are used to plump up areas where wrinkles appear, smoothing the skin and minimizing the noticeability of those wrinkles. If you have lines around your mouth or cheeks that you would like to see smoothed, dermal fillers could be right for you.
Dr. Roba and the dermal filler experts at Zinnia Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Clinic offers a wide range of dermal fillers so that they can choose the best option for your specific needs. Their offering includes:
Dermal fillers last for about a year to 2 years and are in most cases reversible. In general, they’ll restore youthfulness to your face.
Smoothing out your wrinkles is a lunchtime procedure. That means you can pop in for a treatment (which usually takes 20 minutes or less), then continue on with your day. You may start to see results right away, but it can take a few days for these treatments to take full effect.
