Frequently Asked Question
BOTOX is the #1 selling treatment of its kind*:
BOTOX targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Dr.Matla will inject these muscles with BOTOX to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
BOTOX is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX feels like a pinch. Dr.Matla may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, we can instead apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
The injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Dr.Matla will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave our clinic.
Treatment with BOTOX is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with Dr.Matla,
he will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including
moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
For the crow’s feet area, Dr.Matla will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.
For the frown lines area, Dr.Matla will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.
For the forehead lines area, Dr.Matla will administer 4-6 injections into a muscle in your forehead.
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies, one percent of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow's feet studies, and one percent of patients experienced brow drooping in the forehead lines studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX.
Yes! But be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
Yes. The number of men receiving cosmetic treatments overall has risen by 325% over the last 20 years. And the number of men specifically choosing treatments like BOTOX has also risen fast– in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.
No. If it doesn’t say BOTOX on the vial, then it isn’t BOTOX. It’s important to understand that medical formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among products, so no one product can take the place of another. This is why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX. BOTOX has a one-of-a-kind formulation. And BOTOX is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind. Backed by more than 15 years of clinical studies, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX have been described in 495 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Permanent fillers last longer than resorbable fillers in your skin. Their effect is irreversible.
Consequently, removing the implant or correcting the result becomes very difficult. In addition,
permanent fillers can cause delayed hyper-sensitivity.
It is highly advisable to use resorbable fillers for safer results.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural skin component. It acts like a sponge and retains large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft. In the fillers syringes, HA comes in the form of a gel. We lose 50 % of our hyaluronic acid between the age of 40 and 50. The skin becomes dry, thin and fragile.
Fillers and botulinum toxin are both used to treat wrinkles. However, their mode of action is
Botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle. It causes local paralysis and thus reduces expression lines. It is a preventive method.
HA fillers are gels, injected under the skin to directly fill the wrinkles and smoothen skin surface. It is a corrective method.
Normally the effect of an injection depends on the type of the product and differs from one person to another. Refer to your practitioner for more precise information.
HA injections are contra-indicated and must not be used:
*In combination with peeling, laser or ultrasound-based treatments.
*If the patient has cutaneous disorders, inflammation or infection at the treatment site or near to this site.
*In the case of patients having a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid, with a history of severe allergy or anaphylactic shock.
*Hypersensitivity to lidocaine and/or amide local anaesthetic agents.
*Patients with autoimmune diseases.
*In pregnancy, breast-feeding mothers, or in children
*Sportsmen and women must be made aware of the fact that these HA products contain an active component which may cause a positive result in a drug test.
*Do not inject into blood vessels.
You should inform your doctor of all your medical and disease history and your current and past
drugs and treatments.
BEFORE the injection:
It is strongly proposed to avoid taking aspirin, anti-coagulants and anti-inflammatory drugs for a week prior to the procedure. Refer to your practitioner before interrupting any chronic treatment.
AFTER the injection:
Avoid drinking alcohol, taking a plane or doing any kind of sports for a period of 72 hours post- injection. Also, during the 15 days following your treatment, it is highly advisable to avoid dental treatments, aesthetic procedures of any type, sun exposure and extreme temperatures (icy weather, saunas, steam rooms, hot baths...).
The results are instant but the definitive effect is visible after a few weeks.
No. After the injection, syringe, needle or cannula and any unused product should be disposed of immediately as this is a single-use device.
With time, our skin progressively loses its structure due to:
Glowing, contoured, high cheekbones are a feature many women find sexy and beautiful.
As we age the bone and tissues of the face lose volume. Our high cheekbones become less defined, and we are left with a little bit of a droop. Over time, the loss of Hyaluronic Acid within the skin means we lose some of the youthful elasticity of our cheeks, which makes them appear a bit saggy. The fat pads on our cheeks begin to slide down and create more pressure on our nasolabial fold; the line that connects the tip of your nose to the corner of your lips. This makes the fold more pronounced.
Adding dermal fillers deep within the skin restores it’s youthful elasticity. By adding volume strategically to the midface area, by enhancing the curve of the cheekbones, we are able to lift the cheeks, lips and lower face. You can see visible results instantly after your treatment, so you can enjoy your revitalized look right away. The results are natural-looking and are clinically proven.
Who doesn’t want plump, luscious, natural-looking lips?
Natural ageing process change the appearance of your face over time. So what happens to our lips? Where did the volume go? Our facial bone structure actually changes over time. The bone that supports your lips gets reabsorbed into the body, without its support, your upper lip may appear thinner and flatter. Appearance of lines and wrinkles Our skin loses Hyaluronic Acid (HA) over time, which means that we lose some of that youthful elasticity. We smile a lot, and the repetition of smiling starts to show with marionette lines; the little lines on the sides of your lips. Getting lips you’ll love is achievable. Facial fillers can not only smooth wrinkles around the mouth, they can also make them fuller, more symmetrical, and more noticeable. Filling your marionette lines gives a smoother look. Filling bar lines around your mouth gives a younger appearance.
You may have heard the term ‘liquid face lift’. Rather than going for invasive surgery, injecting facial fillers in certain areas using specific techniques provides similar effects without the complications of surgery. By adding volume to your CHEEKS, JAWLINE and CHIN many women look beautiful and younger.
