Aesthetics Q & A

What is the best aesthetics treatment for frown lines?

Frown lines, the two vertical lines between your eyebrows, can grow quite prominent as you age. Because frown lines are caused by muscle movements just below your skin, the best way to treat them is by lessening those muscle movements. That’s exactly what botulinum toxin injections can do for you. 

Your AP Health doctor injects botulinum toxin directly within the muscles that dictate brow movement, and this reduces their movement. This, in turn, reduces your frown lines and prevents your muscles from continually contracting to create new ones. 

Botulinum toxin isn’t only for frown lines, either: it’s also very effective at reducing horizontal forehead lines and crows-feet around your eyes. Botulinum toxin injections can reduce wrinkles for up to four months. 

What is the best aesthetics treatment for smile lines? 

Smile lines, the common name for the nasolabial folds going from the bottom corners of your nose to the sides of your lips, are one of the most common signs of facial aging. Smile lines are caused by collagen loss under your skin, rather than the muscle movement that causes frown lines. Because of this, you need a different kind of injectable, a filler, to correct smile lines. 

Your AP Health doctor can inject fillers directly into your smile lines to add immediate volume. This lifts your sunken skin and smooths deep lines away. You can also have filler injections in other areas where collagen loss is a problem, including your lips and cheeks. You’ll see the improvement before you go home! 

Fillers correct volume problems in your face for anywhere from 6-24 months. The exact dermal filler formula impacts longevity, and the specific area of treatment can also make a difference in how long it lasts. Generally, the less the area moves, the longer the filler lasts.

What is the recovery like after aesthetics treatments?

One of the great benefits of aesthetics treatments at AP Health is that there’s no recovery time. You might have some minor inflammation and swelling for a few hours, but you can apply concealer if you like.
