How do cosmetic injections work?
Cosmetic injections, such as Botox or dermal fillers, work by targeting specific areas of concern on the face. Botox helps relax muscles that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers replace lost volume in the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

How long do the results of cosmetic injections last?
The duration of results varies depending on the type of injection and individual factors. Botox results can last around 3-4 months, while dermal fillers can provide results that last from 6 months to over a year. Regular maintenance treatments can help sustain the desired outcome.
Are cosmetic injections painful?
Discomfort during cosmetic injections is typically minimal. The procedure is usually well-tolerated, and the provider may apply a topical anesthetic or use techniques to minimize any discomfort. Individual pain tolerance may vary.
