MMR Healthcare is a Florida-based medical facility that treats patients like family. More importantly, our private practice is open every day of the week, giving you access to board-certified healthcare practitioners and clinicians at a moment’s notice. While our treatment options span a wide array of technologies, there’s a question on many of our patients’ minds when they visit MMR Healthcare: What about Botox treatment and dermal fillers?

Botox Injections and Fillers to Reverse the Hands of Time

In simplistic terms, Botox treatment works by soothing and temporarily numbing the underlying facial muscles responsible for aging. If you’ve begun to notice smile lines, forehead wrinkles, neck sagging, and droopiness beneath your eyes after waking, Botox injections can help.

For patients who want to contour and modify their faces to enhance their natural beauty, we recommend dermal fillers over Botox injections. While Botox relaxes and sedates underlying muscles of the face and neck, dermal fillers plump and contour the area, creating an elegant appearance. Our clinicians and doctors will build a plan of action using dermal injections tailored to the unique structure of your face.

How Long Will I Have to Wait to See Results?

The beauty of Botox is that the improvements are almost instantaneous. When patients leave our office, the results manifest before they get into their car and drive home. However, the full effect of a Botox session typically takes between 48 and 72 hours.

Patients who receive fillers will have to wait longer; your results begin to show within two weeks, with some patients waiting a few extra days. However, the benefit of fillers compared to Botox comes down to how long the results stay. While Botox wears off within a three- or four-month span, fillers can last upwards of a year or more with proper care.

How Should I Prepare for My Botox and Fillers?

Although Botox and fillers fall within the minimally invasive category, you should take certain precautions before an appointment. To start, always consult with your medical doctor and seek their advice. However, it’s common for healthcare practitioners to recommend avoiding medications that influence the body’s natural clotting mechanism. Over-the-counter remedies that cause blood thinning or a drop in overall blood pressure should be avoided as these products interfere with results.
