A combination of Botox and Hyaluronic Acid filler has been found to produce an effect that lasts longer than either modality used separately. Softlift is a name coined by Allergan, the manufacturer of both Botox and Juvederm. The same benefit and effect can be achieved combining Botox with any brand of dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are purchased by the syringe and the price per syringe varies from product to product. . The price of your procedure will vary depending on the area to be treated and the amount of product required to achieve the desired result. In any case, when the total price is calculated on the number of months you will benefit from the procedure, it is a small price to pay for the improved confidence and self-esteem you will enjoy.
Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler is a safe procedure for all skin types and colours. Some common injection-related reactions such as bruising and swelling might occur. Erythema, swelling, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness to the injection site resolve themselves and are short-lived.
Yes! Hyaluronic acid also appears to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to the skin’s fullness and elasticity. One study found that Hyaluronic acid works on fibroblasts (connective tissue cells) in a way that causes new collagen to form in the skin. This may halt the age and sun-related breakdown of existing collagen.
As with other Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Teosyal and Juvederm will be absorbed naturally by the body over time. Some people will metatolize it faster than others. The duration of the filling effect varies based on the facial areas treated, the thickness of the product used, and other factors such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age. We lose Hyaluronic Acid faster if we spend a lot of time in the sun. The result lasts longer in areas less affected by animation. When used to plump up a scar the result will last longer than when used around the mouth, for example, where there is much more movement. Timely touch-up and follow-up treatment will add to the duration. Results from fillers generally last from 6 months and for periods up to 2 years in most people.
