Jul 01 2017 28 11750


Question 1: How often can I have Botox injection?

AnswerSmall amount of Botox injection lasts only 4-6 months because Botox is a temporary medication procedure. The effect is not permanent and you can take another Botox injection after the effect wears off slowly. However excessive treatment can cause the body to produce antibodies against Botox which will gradually reduce the effectiveness.

Question 2: Are there any side effects after Botox injection?

Answer People have been receiving Botox for decades without any permanent effects,it is considered to be one of the safest procedures ,but it is still possible to have side effects after taking botox such as flu-like symptoms, redness , mild pain at the injection point, facial pain, eyelid twitching, double vision and even drooping of the eyelids(temporary), However if you develop any symptoms like speech problem, swallowing or breathing difficulties after procedures you must go to the doctor for further examination.

Question 3: What material is used for filler injection?

AnswerFillers are made with many different kinds of materials. There are 4 kinds of injectable fillers that we know of : autologous fat, collagen, hyaluronic acid (HA) and synthetic fillers. For dermal fillers, they are made out of sugar molecules or composed of hyaluronic acid and collagen, however because of the small allergic risk of dermal fillers, HA become the most commonly used in worldwide fillers in hospitals.

Question 4: Is there any side effect after filler injection?

Answer Filler injection has rare side effects but indications like redness,swelling and mild pain can be seen after procedures. It normally takes an average of 7 days to be fully recovered.

Question 5: How does fat graft compare to filler injection?

AnswerWhen we lose volume on the face because of natural causes like aging, the cheek starts to droop and the wrinkles get more obvious on the chin,eyes area, brow,forehead and mouth. To help improve aging results, solutions like fat transfer (fat graft) and fillers injection on the face can give more volume to the face but whats the difference between fillers and fat transfer?

Fat transfer can be performed on all areas of the face. It is harvested via liposuction and injected into the face. Fat transfer is used for volume replacement and not to treat fine lines. Fat transfer is longer lasting (1-2years) and often semi permanent after the initial swelling goes down. The results are much more dependent on the surgical skill of the surgeon than the injection itself, and it takes longer to see the final results.

if you want to alleviate the fine lines around the mouth and eyes, filler injections like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse are more immediate in their results. Hyaluronic acid (HA) gels are best used for superficial wrinkles, volumizing the lips, and filling in the depression under the eyes. However,if you want to have a semi permanent youthful look and have severe volume loss with your face then a fat transfer would be the best solution!!
