The length of time fillers last depends on which product you choose, but all injectables enhance collagen production and restore lost volume due to aging.
Before Botox or dermal filler injections at The Medical Dock, Dr. Ahmad reviews your medical history and completes a skin examination to determine which cosmetic injectables best match your needs and preferences.
Right before the injections, he numbs the affected area with a topical numbing agent to make your experience as comfortable as possible. He strategically injects filler substances just beneath the skin, and the procedure lasts less than 30 minutes.
After Botox injections, you might notice results within several days. With dermal fillers, you’ll experience results immediately. There’s no downtime after Botox or dermal filler injections so you can resume everyday activities right away. You might experience temporary redness, mild bruising, or swelling, however.
Dr. Ahmad and his team at The Medical Dock let you know how often you’ll require injections to achieve the best aesthetic results possible. You may need Botox injections every 3-6 months and fillers every 6-18 months or longer, depending on your individual needs and the type of injection you choose.
