Lip Fillers


Lip fillers are a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a gel-like substance into the lips to add volume and shape. The substance typically used for lip fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Lip fillers can be used to enhance the appearance of thin or uneven lips, as well as to add shape and definition to the lips.

The procedure is performed by a medical professional such as a dermatologist, plastic surgeon or aesthetician, with a needle or cannula. The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to complete and the results can last anywhere from several months to a year.


Botox


Botox is a cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin into the skin to temporarily paralyse specific muscles. It is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, particularly on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. Botox can also be used to treat certain medical conditions such as migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasms.

The procedure is performed by a medical professional such as a plastic surgeon, a dermatologist, or a licensed aesthetician. The procedure usually takes around 20-30 minutes and the effects of Botox typically last for about 3-6 months.


Chin Fillers
