Botox and Dysport are ideal for treating lines and wrinkles that form due to muscle activity that have formed deep lines. Muscle freezing with Botox and Dysport are best used in the forehead, upper face, glabellar area and crows feet with great success.
This review should’ve been written years ago! I have seen Dr. Applebaum a number of times and he is truly an artist in the field of plastic surgery! His skill is the most important, but his manner is a close second. He is so kind & so skilled! He also will not perform unnecessary procedures, which in BH is practically unheard of!!!! He’s simply the best
FACIAL FILLER PROCEDURE FAQs
Most dermal fillers last six to 18 months depending on the location and the level of facial animation surrounding the filler. Fillers around the lips and laugh lines tend to last less that filler placed deep into the cheeks and lower eyes.
Dr. Applebaum can address your inquiries with confidence and professionalism. As a surgeon he understands the aging face after performing surgery for almost thirty years.
Most fillers are injected with very small needles and are not painless but are easily tolerated. If needed topical anesthesia with a gel can be applied to make the experience more comfortable.
Although injectables like Botox and dermal fillers are relatively safe and effective, there are some potential side effects as with most cosmetic procedures. Redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site is most common. More serious complications are rare and include bleeding, injection site rash, headache, nausea and contouring irregularities.
