It’s Holiday party season, are you ready?
This time of year we see a rush of patients refreshing their Dypsort/Botox and Filler to look their best in time for all of the Holiday parties. So, for those who are new to the game, I wanted to help you plan your treatments.
Botox/Dysport are so commonly used today that this may be unnecessary, but these are used to soften lines on the forehead, between the eyes and on the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet). The treatments themselves really only take a minute or two. Small amounts are strategically injected to soften and smooth out unwanted wrinkles and lines. But, because of the injection itself, you can get a bruise or a little swelling. Also, neither product works immediately. Dysport works more quickly but you wont see its full effect for about 4 or 5 days. So I would recommend treating about a week before your event.
The fillers, Restylane and Juvederm are the most widely used, are used to plump. They are commonly used on tear troughs, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. Now, the effects of the filler are immediate, but again you can get a bruise and everyone gets some amount of swelling with fillers. So, again I would recommend you treat about 1 week before your event.
I hope this information helps you plan. Be sure to check our website at www.corbettcosemticsurgery.com for our Holiday specials!
