inject Botox

Is it dangerous to inject Botox?

What is Botox?

Botox is an injection product consisting of muscle relaxants injected into the muscles under the skin. It is a natural protein and is completely harmless when used in the right amount.

Botox is completely harmless if used in the right amount and injected in the right place. Therefore, it is extra important to be treated by a licensed physician with further education in botox and facial anatomy.

When do I see the effect of the treatment?

Full effect is achieved after about 2 weeks and the treatment lasts for about 3-5 months, with a gradual weakening.
Follow-up treatment helps maintain the desired effect!

What is really best, Botox or Fillers?

Botox and Fillers are two completely different treatments. We often combine these two treatments to achieve optimal results. We at Blissful Me Medspa always book a free consultation initially with the customer. At the consultation, we make a long-term individual assessment and planning for the best results and for us to meet the customer’s expectations.

Dermal Fillers

Restylane and Juvederm fillers are a series of beauty products created to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, rejuvenate and moisturize and restore volume around the mouth, lips, eyes and other parts of the face. Wrinkles occur due to increasing age and decreased skin volume by reducing the skin’s own production of hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in the body and has an amazing ability to bind water, providing lift and volume to the skin.

Fillers are injected with a fine needle under the skin and the content is a unique stabilized gel of hyaluronic acid. When treating lines and wrinkles, anesthesia is usually not given. As a result of the injection, redness, swelling or some tenderness may occur. This reaction usually goes away after only a few days.

The newer fillers (Juvederm and Radiesse) have taken much less time to be approved. So as far as safety is concerned, the FDA considers all to be safe, but Restylane has the longest track record and the most people injected worldwide, by far. The only stain on Radiesse’s record occurred in patients who had the product injected into the lips. Some of them got lumps because of the nature of the muscular anatomy of the lips; therefore Radiesse is not approved for and should never be used in the lips. Radiesse now offers the Radiesse Plus (+) that already comes with lidocaine and makes the treatment more comfortable

The newest of all these products are Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne. Silk is the only FDA approved filler for lips and lines around the lips. It is very smooth filler with natural results. It can be injected superficial on any expression lines or wrinkles. Restylane Lyft is new filler and is almost the same as Perlane (no longer available) but it brings more product per syringe
