Our patient, a 39 year old woman, was annoyed by the dark circles around her eyes. There were also a couple of wrinkles on her face that made her unhappy with her appearance.
“When we spoke about her reasons for having a cosmetic procedure, she shared her wish for brighter skin and a youthful look. She was bothered with the dark circles around her eyes, which were easily noticeable because of her light skin tone.” says Dr. Kevin Tehrani, chief plastic surgeon at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics.
“We spoke about several non-surgical procedures. I explained each procedure’s process, recovery time and effects. Having her goals on my mind, I suggested the combination of Botox® and Restylane® as the best, most suitable choice. She felt comfortable with both Botox® and Restylane®, so we continued with scheduling her treatment” said Dr. Tehrani.
Advantages of Botox® are many and different. But patients choose Botox® injectables mostly because it’s a non-surgical treatment. It doesn’t include incisions, scarring, stitches or cuts, which scare the patients pretty much. Botox® makes the skin perfectly smooth. It relaxes the facial muscles resulting in reduced wrinkles. It’s one of the most effective anti-aging solutions. Furthermore, there are almost no side effects. But even if they occur, they are minor and temporary and commonly restricted to bruising and swelling. You can find more information about Botox® here.
Restylane® is used to restore the volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. The Restylane® treatment results in appearance of fullness and increases the skin’s elasticity. The Restylane® procedure lasts only a few minutes and the results last up to one year.
