There is no greater feeling than being confident in your own skin. Whether you are looking for a weight loss center to help you reach your ideal size or looking for a solution for fine lines and wrinkles, many of us struggle with some part of ourselves that we would like to change or enhance.

Facial aesthetics are procedures that help both men and women achieve healthy, younger looking facial skin.

What Is Botox?

At PhySlim, we offer high-quality, undiluted botox, We use a 1 to 1 dilution so when you get 1 unit you are really getting 1 unit. Botox can be used to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a very popular non-surgical treatment for muscular conditions and cosmetics.

Botox is made from botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin produced by a type of bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. The bacterium used is found in natural sources such as soil and lakes. Botox treatment reduces wrinkles by paralyzing muscles in problem areas, which gives the skin the look of more elasticity. This in turn can make your skin look more youthful.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is injected in an extremely small quantity to the areas on your face that you would like to smooth out. The neurotoxin then blocks signals that pass from your nerves to your muscles, causing them to no longer contract. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

Other non-cosmetic uses of Botox include:

• Chronic migraine
• Excessive sweating
• Detrusor overactivity
• Blepharospasm

When getting Botox injected, you can expect for your provider to gently inject the problem area. You will notice the effects of your Botox in about 24-72 hours.

Dermal Fillers

PhySlim also proudly offers Juvaderm and Restylane dermal fillers. Both of these products are injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can be used for a range of different needs.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can be used for helping to plump lips and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. They are minimally invasive and can add volume to a desired area of the face.

They can range in the amount of time they last, but some can stretch from a few months to a couple of years. Each person’s body will react differently to the fillers, which can affect how long they last.

As we age, we lose collagen in our skin. Dermal fillers can help give a patient the look of plump, younger looking skin in just a few minutes. Recovery is typically only a few days.

Whereas Botox freezes the muscle to get rid of wrinkles, Juvaderm and Restylane can be used to “fill in” the gaps around the mouth, cheeks, and under the eyes to give the look of more volume. Botox typically lasts 3 to 4 months, while dermal fillers can last much longer.

Feel free to come in for a consultation and talk to a doctor about any concerns you may have. Together, you can decide which areas to target and what you can expect after your treatment.

PhySlim participates in reward programs and frequently offer specials to reduce cost for our patients.
