Wrinkles, crows feet, and worry and laugh lines can disappear with the treatment of Botox. Through the virtual painless process of injecting Botox into the tiny facial muscles that create wrinkles, you can look years younger and experience a renewed sense of self-confidence. Even though the effects are not permanent and treatment may need to repeated two or three times per year, each treatment leads to a longer duration and greater effect.

Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers provide a similar result as Botox, but not in the same way. Fillers are substances that are injected under the skin or lips to plump up the tissues. Not only can fillers provide an increased lip size and enhanced definition, but they can also plump out lipstick lines that develop in many female patients.

Fillers can also be used for laugh lines or for deeper wrinkles. They are also used to enhance the face to make larger more contoured cheeks and chin, and to fill in the depressed areas of the face to give a fuller and more youthful appearance as well as fill in defects or scars.

In an attempt to make the procedure painless, a topical numbing cream then a local anesthesia is used with very small needles. The patient is made comfortable before the procedure. Then Dr. Patterson injects the wrinkles, lips and folds of the skin which takes only a few minutes. Ice is applied to the injection sights. Changes in the face are noticeable almost immediately though some swelling may result, but will subside after 24-36 hours. Nevertheless, the patient should look at the overall procedure of injecting fillers as a multi-step process similar to sculpting the areas of the face.
