Sometimes it’s not a matter of deciding whether or not you want to get dermal fillers, or botox, or even an eyelid lift; it’s about where you can get them done that is safe and where it will look just great. This is why we are here to help. Puerto Vallarta has a number of cosmetic clinics where you can get your procedures done, and we are about to share with you our favorite ones.
But before we start discussing places and doctors, let’s talk a little bit more about what dermal fillers and botox are, how long the treatment takes and just what are the effects you can expect once you have had them done.
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles in order to temporarily improve the look of frown lines, mainly those common between the eyebrows, as well as some not so prominent wrinkles, especially the ones on the corner of the eyes. This procedure is extremely short, taking only a few minutes.
How does botox work?
When the botox is injected it paralyzes the muscle, so even if you frown, for example, your muscle won’t move and the lines won’t be noticeable.
Does it hurt?
Since botox is injected, you might feel a little pain when the needle goes in, but some doctors use ice to numb the area, or even offer topical anesthesia before starting the procedure.
How long does the botox effect last?
The effect of botox varies depending on each patient, but the average time for it is between three and a half to four months.
Is botox dangerous?
As with pretty much any other procedure, there are some risks to using botox, so you should be sure you trust your doctor and be very attentive to the area where you had it applied, in case you have any kind of allergy or reaction.
As with botox, dermal fillers are applied through injections in order to look more youthful, but without having to pay for a full facelift.
How long does a dermal filler take?
Filling most prominent lines and wrinkles usually takes around 30 minutes.
How long does a dermal filler lasts?
As before, the results vary from patient to patient, but the average is from 4 months to up to a whole year.
There are different kind of fillers, depending on you and the area you wish to fill. This depends on you and your doctor, so make sure you answer all your personal doubts with an expert before doing the procedure.
