BOTOX AND DERMAL FILLERS:
Botox and Dermal fillers can only be administered by qualified doctors or dentists. In Apex Dentist, our doctors have been trained in accordance with the official guidelines and are legally qualified to administer this life-changing procedure.Botox fillers involve injecting a protein called Botulinum Toxin into the skin to relax the facial muscles temporarily to reduce wrinkles and increase rejuvenation of the skin. It is also used in treatment of certain conditions e.g. hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). The results appear between 3 to 6 months after the treatment. Dermal Fillers are the Hyaluronic Acid injections administered into the skin to boost the elasticity through additional production of collagen. As Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is naturally present in our bodies, it is the most organic and fastest method for skin rejuvenation. With aging, this acid becomes less and less increasing the wrinkles on our skin. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately after the injection. HA can also be used on lips for extra volume.Both treatments leave no scars or anything as such apart from a little bruising due to the needle. Filler treatment is completed in less than 45 minutes and can last up to 2 years.

This can easily be masked by makeup. There are no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning patients can resume their usual activities straight away, and can also fly post-treatment This treatment can be used on a wide range of patients, and is primarily used for skin rejuvenation and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows
(glabellar lines) for a short period of time. It can also be injected into the area around the side of the eyes to improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines.
