Botox has Many Benefits: How to Get the Most Out of Your Treatment

Botox offers a plethora of advantages. There are certain crucial strategies to get the most out of your Botox treatment, whether you want to rejuvenate your appearance, avoid signs of aging, or use it for medical concerns. Here are some suggestions of how to get the most out of your botox treatments:  


Only go to a qualified medical practitioner for treatment. 

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a prescription only medication that is supplied to qualified medical professionals from UK registered pharmacists. Each treatment is unique as it takes into account your individual anatomy. To avoid treatment blunders such as being injected illegitimate product, the frozen look or imbalanced outcomes, only go to medically qualified injectors such as a doctor, dentist or a nurse. 



Your consultation is the ideal moment to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with your injector. You should tell your practitioner about any medical history, medications or supplements you're taking because some of them may interact with your treatment.  Talk about your aesthetic goals and what you want to get out of therapy. Clear communication helps achieving the greatest outcomes. 


Keep your hands away 

After your treatment, avoid touching the treatment area. Remember that injection sites can get infected so keeping your hands away from the treated areas for at least 6 hours and do not apply any make up.  


Keep your metabolic rate steady for the first 24-72 hours after treatment  

Botox works by blocking certain messengers between nerve cells and muscles so that the muscles relax instead of contracting and wrinkling the skin. Anything that causes you to overheat, such as vigourous exercise, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and alcohol drinks, can raise your metabolic rate which can inactivate the medication before it gets to work at its desired neuro - mascular site.  


Stand Tall and Proud 

Because Botox takes time to settle into place, don't lie down, recline, or bend excessively for four to six hours after your treatment. Although there are no long-term effects for lying down too soon after your Botox treatment, we encourage that you stay upright to allow the Botox to perform its magic. 


When the Botox Magic Kicks In  

The medication takes some time to work. Some people can start to see some effects as early as 3 days after treatment but full effects can be judged at a 10-14 days review appointment.  Keep Up the Magic  Regular Botox treatments might assist you in achieving the finest long-term outcomes.Botox can be effective for 3-4 months after which a repeat treatment would be needed.

What You Should Know Prior To Actually Getting Lip Fillers?


Currently, is not too long before you see an appealing pair of lips  jump out of a newspaper, tv screen or the woman you've  just passed by. 


So, how do you obtain those subtle yet flawlessly pouty lips and what should you understand about lip fillers before you can get them? Before you schedule a lip filler treatment, consider the following factors: 


Is your therapist a qualified medical professional?


Finding a medically trained and registered professional is critical no matter what aesthetic  treatment you're getting, but especially when a medical devise, such as dermal fillers, is being injected into your body. To be sure you enjoy your practitioner's work, look at their credentials, reviews and their lip filler before and after photos.


There were numerous reports recently of botched lip injections performed by unqualified individuals. So, don't be enticed by low-cost salon or mobile practitioner services; if you're going to have it done, it should be accomplished by an expert. It's impossible to hide behind a trout pout!


What are the most common  lip filler types?


Nowadays, hyaluronic acid (HA) is the most commonly used substance. Not all dermal fillers are the same. Choose a premium brand, such as Teosyal by Teoxane, which has been around for many years with a proven safety profile and quality. 


How quickly do you see the effects of lip fillers?


Your lips will swell in the first 24 hours or so after receiving lip filler injections, so your first look at them will not reflect how they will eventually look. If they appear larger than expected immediately after treatment, this should subside as the swelling subsides. 

A reputable practitioner will always be available to respond to any questions or concerns you may have following the treatment. 


Is it safe to use lip fillers?

CE approved HA dermal fillers are safe as long as they are applied by a medically skilled practitioner. As with any medical treatment, side effects can develop which can be managed by your practitioner. If you have any problems with your lip fillers, speak with your practitioner, who will be able to provide you the best care and advice. If necessary, HA fillers can be dissolved with a medication that contains an enzyme which breaks down the HA filler.  


Do lip fillers injections hurt?

Although pain tolerance differs from person to person, lip fillers are often more uncomfortable than painful for many people. Because the lips are so sensitive, practitioners use a number of numbing treatments. Some people opt for a dental block, which involves injections into the gums that numb the mouth, while others opt for numbing cream. Consult your practitioner to see what choices are available to you. Your lips will most likely be swollen, bruised, lumpy and uncomfortable for a few days after the lip filler treatment, which is completely normal.


Are you not sure how much lip filler you need?

The volume of filler you get relies entirely on the aesthetic you want to achieve and what your practitioner recommends. However, for your first treatment 1ml of filler is usually adequate to give you a natural look. 


If you decide you want filler lips, talk to your practitioner about the safest, most appropriate amount to achieve that natural-looking result. Make sure you don't turn into a caricature of yourself. At least for the first appointment at Aesthetics By Silvie, less is absolutely more. 

5 Common Myths and Legends About Dermal Fillers


Because there is so much information available about dermal fillers, it can be difficult to tell what is true and what is not. In this article, we debunk six of the most common misconceptions about this treatment.


Isn't Botox just a filler?

Wrong! Botox is a neuromodulator which works by weakening the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers are tissue volumisers that are typically used to fill wrinkles or hollow parts of the face and provide support and definition of the facial features.


The temples, under-eye circles, cheeks, lips,  corners of the mouth, marionette lines, jowls, sagging jawline are all areas that can be treated with dermal fillers. 


Fillers have a 'fake' appearance

When dermal fillers are done correctly, no! Our patients receive beautiful, natural-looking results at Aesthetics By Silvie. Although some people may notice that you appear to be revitalized, they are unlikely to know why.


It's important to remember that, as with any type of cosmetic procedure, you should seek treatment from an experienced injectables provider with extensive knowledge and experience. The medical staff at Aesthetics By Silvie performs filler injections all day, every day. 


There will be experiencing pain and a period of rest.

False! There is usually only minor bruising and swelling, so you can get back to your regular routine right away after the dermal fillers process. Cool compresses, Arnica, and elevating the head of the bed can help reduce the bruising and swelling that can occur after filler injections, especially around the eyes and mouth.

Bruising and/or swelling can usually be concealed with make-up and is barely noticeable. Timeless offers laser treatment follow-up for patients who have more than minor bruising. This helps to dissipate the bruise.


Bringing fillers is a painful experience.

False! Cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers can cause slight pain; however, a few fillers, such as JuvĂ©derm, contain bupivacaine (a numbing agent), which can significantly reduce any pain felt during the injection. Aesthetics By Silvie uses specialized technologies to achieve your comfort before, during, and after your diagnosis. On a scale of 1–10, many clients rate their pain as a 2–3.


I'll have to do it on a regular basis.

Not at all! Whereas the fillers do break down over time due to body enzymatic, the dermal fillers injections can last from 6 -18 months, depending on the type of filler used and where it is placed.

The staff at Aesthetics By Silvie believes it is crucial that our clients have all of the facts and are properly educated when it comes to injectables. We take pride in being among the top 1% of the injection systems, and we enjoy seeing happy patients on a daily basis.
