Combining Dermal Fillers with Botox
Sun exposure, hormonal changes, aging, and repeated facial movements (smiling, frowning, squinting) can impact the skin over time, resulting in wrinkles, loss of facial volume, and a tired, sunken appearance. At Physician Skincare Centre in North Vancouver, a non-surgical facelift performed by Dr. Bieg addresses all of these concerns without the anaesthesia, discomfort, and extensive recovery time associated with invasive facial surgery.
Wrinkle Fillers for Anti Aging
The non-surgical facelift, also known as “Soft Lift”, combines Botox Cosmetic with dermal fillers to address multiple signs of aging at the same time, for an overall refreshed appearance that is subtle and natural-looking. The treatment is quick, safe and easy, with most patients returning to their normal activities immediately after. A non-surgical facelift works on two levels. Botox Cosmetic, a purified protein, relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. When injected into these muscles in tiny amounts, it effectively smoothes frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Dermal fillers are injectable gels that instantly restore facial volume where collagen and hyaluronic acid have been depleted. When used in combination, Botox and dermal fillers create a full facial rejuvenation effect that can remove years from your appearance, with virtually no recovery time.
Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
The non-surgical facelift or “Soft Lift” typically takes less than an hour to perform, and is completed in one session. Dr. Bieg uses an individual fine needle for each Botox injection site, and most dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, which minimizes any discomfort. Topical anaesthesia may also be utilized, particularly in more sensitive areas such as the lips. Results from the fillers are instant, as facial volume is restored, and may last 6 to 12 months or longer. Botox effects begin to occur within several days, as lines and wrinkles gradually diminish. It is recommended that Botox treatment be repeated every 3 to 4 months to better maintain the overall result of a non-surgical facelift.
