Botox Effects and Duration

Consultation

The registered nurses at Dr Dental will be happy to answer any questions that you have about Botox and fillers during a private consultation. 

They will examine your skin closely and assess your health history and medication use to ensure these procedures are safe and appropriate for you. Once they have a strong sense of your skin condition and your goals for your appearance, they will make a professional recommendation if Botox, fillers, or a combination of the two will be provided to ensure your desired results are met.

Together, you will create a personal treatment plan.

What are Fillers?

The main ingredient in fillers is Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally-occurring molecule within the body. The Hyaluronic Acid molecule is moisture-retentive and plays an important role in keeping elastin and collagen in the skin healthy.

The natural ageing process reduces the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in our skin, which causes deep lines and a reduced facial volume. 

Hyaluronic acid will fill deep lines and increase volume in targeted areas so these fillers achieve results that look and feel natural. Hyaluronic acid has the additional benefit of stimulating collagen production within the skin, which helps to extend and complement the outcomes of the injection.

Post-Operative Care

The recovery period after treatment with Botox and/or Dermal Fillers is short and hassle-free. Patients are free to return to their day activities including work following their injections

Avoid touching the treated area for six hours after your appointment. 

  • You may have some swelling, bruising, or itchiness immediately after the procedure, but it will naturally disappear.
  • Avoid contact with water and make-up 1-2 hours after the injections.
  • Avoid hot temperatures, sauna, or strenuous exercises 7 days after the injection.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.

Bruising and swelling can be controlled with ice application. Patients can reduce post-procedure bruising by avoiding blood-thinning medication and supplements for two weeks before and two weeks following their rejuvenation with Botox and/or Fillers. Blood-thinning supplements include Ginkgo Biloba, turmeric, fish oil, garlic, and vitamin E, please discuss this with your medical practitioner before coming off blood thinners.

Results

Botox may take two to seven days to take effect. Results of fillers will be apparent immediately and continue to improve as post-procedure swelling subsides. 

The wrinkle-fighting results of Botox last for three to six months. Your wrinkles will diminish, restoring your smooth, relaxed skin tone. Patients who receive Botox to address their jaw muscle will see the effects start to appear 2 weeks after the injection. Full effect will be noticeable at about 6-8 weeks.
