What is Botox® and How does it Work?
Botox®, a trademark for pure botulinum toxin, is recognized for its ability to relax muscles. When injected into the face muscles, it interferes with nerve signals rather than affecting the movement of muscles directly. This restriction prevents muscles from contracting, which stops the rapid movements that cause wrinkles on the skin. Botox® is frequently used to address wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes (crow's feet), and on the lips in attempts to revitalize the appearance of the face. Beyond appearance, it is essential for TMJ and bruxism adjunct treatment, providing relief for patients with persistent face pain.
What is Dermal Filler?
Injectables are a great way to go if you're seeking a non surgical face lift or if you simply want to fill deeply set wrinkles or smooth out a few lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure used by millions of individuals to achieve a more expressive while relaxed and smooth facial appearance.
Skin that is older begins to lose hyaluronic acid (HA)-filled collagen. Dermal fillers are utilized to treat wrinkles and loose skin as HA deficiency causes the skin to decrease in volume and structure.
Smooth injectable gels known as dermal fillers, are created from hyaluronic acid which forms naturally. Dermal fillers can encourage the growth of collagen while adding volume to facial features that have lost it. In order to restore the collagen loss that is a result of normal aging, they first plump and gently lift the skin. Additionally, dermal fillers provide the face with a more youthful, natural appearance through stimulating the body to generate its own natural collagen.
FDA-approved dermal fillers are extremely safe and less invasive. There are potential risks associated with every procedure, the most common of which are post-surgical bruising and swelling, which are normally minimal and resolve quickly.
The amount of dermal filler used is dependent on the loss of volume, and the regions that you'd like restored to their natural appearance. Dermal filler treatments typically take 20 to 40 minutes. Following treatment, improvements can be seen right away.
How long do results last?
The results typically last from three to four months after treatment, with a smoother complexion evident three to ten days later. By repeating the process every three to four months, results can be maintained.
Trigger Point Therapy
Localized areas of tension, or painful muscle fibers are referred to as trigger points. These points can appear as a consequence of underlying medical issues, injuries, or excessive movement of the muscles. As a way to relieve pain and alleviate muscular tension, trigger point injections involve injecting medication directly into these sensitivity sites. By reducing inflammation, relaxing the muscles, and inhibiting the brain's transmission of signals for pain from the trigger points, the injected drug helps break the pain cycle. Botox® is administered precisely to the trigger points, enabling accurate pain relief and aiding in the return to regular muscle function.
What are the risks of Botox and Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger point injections have a low likelihood of causing any problems. At the injection site, some patients may have acute discomfort, pain, or numbness.
What to expect following Trigger Point Therapy?
The relief that is experienced following the procedure may be immediate or may take a day or two to appear, depending on the ailment you are being treated for. Injectable trigger points are a temporary solution that will need follow-up visits to preserve the beneficial effects. Many individuals schedule Trigger Point Therapy sessions 2.5, to 3 months apart.
