TThe passing of time and stress take a toll on skin. On the face, the effect is seen as frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet, as well as forehead creases and wrinkles. In the care of Dr. Edmund Kwan, Botox and dermal fillers help patients enjoy rejuvenated appearance by correcting these issues. These procedures are key components of Dr. Kwan’s non-invasive skin improvement strategy.

Botox has become a household name as an injectable treatment for dynamic wrinkles. Botox erases or softens facial creases and lines by temporarily paralyzing muscles which cause wrinkles. This gives skin a smooth and more youthful appearance. Dr. Kwan recommends this simple treatment be repeated regularly every three to four months. This helps ensure attractive and long-lasting results.

As a part of his non-invasive skin procedures, Dr. Kwan uses various fillers such as:

Juvéderm®: Facial folds and wrinkles flatten out with volume and hydration from Juvéderm. This filler provides long lasting results – up to nine months.

Juvéderm Voluma®: Aging is not just about the formation of lines and wrinkles. Many adults also notice that time steals the fullness they once had in the mid-face.

What is Botox?

It is commonly used on the face, especially in the forehead and frown area and crows feet area.

When the Botox is injected into this area, it will smooth out the wrinkles for up to three months to four months.

What are the other areas Botox can be used on?
Botox can be used in other parts of the face, including around the lip area for lip wrinkles and neck area to get rid of the bands in the neck.

It can also be used in the jaw area for patients who have enlarged muscle. When Botox is placed in the jaw area, it will reduce the muscle for up to six to eight months.

Botox can be used for some patients who have enlarged calf muscles. Botox can be used in this area, and it will reduce the size for up to six to eight months.
Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler product formulated and FDA-approved for this specific concern. In a single treatment, cheeks are restored to optimal fullness. Results look natural and last up to two years due to Vycross cross-linking technology that achieves the ideal consistency for deep tissue support. Patients from their 30s to their 60s are that they can regain youthful contours easily thanks to Voluma and their experienced injectable clinician.

I found Dr. Kwan's website and went to a consultation and he recommended to excision treatment. Also, I had a complex about big jaw but I don't have enough time to have surgery before my wedding and Dr. Kwan injected botox a month before my wedding and my face looks small and clean for my only one wedding picture.

Restylane®: The delicate under eye area, cheeks, lips, and folds that travel from corners of the nose to the mouth can be effectively addressed with Restylane. The product revitalizes skin by restoring lost fullness and volume. The filler is a suitable cure for severe facial folds and wrinkles. The results brought about by Restylane® can last as much as six months.

Radiesse®: Adding volume to smile lines and lines around the nose and mouth is straightforward with this product. Radiesse injections restore natural contours to sagging cheeks, too. While skin regains its former fullness, this filler is simultaneously stimulating growth of collagen. The result is a smooth, youthful appearance which can last for a year or more.

FAQ

If you are dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face that are causing you to appear older than you are, you might think a facelift is the best solution. However, patients who have a mild formation of wrinkles and folds due to skin laxity may find that another option might be appropriate for them: Botox.

Can Botox be used instead of V-line surgery?

Botox is short for botulinum toxin. What it is used for is to paralyze the muscle throughout the face.

It is commonly used for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and cosmetic and aesthetic surgery. However, it can be used on the jawline as well.

In the jaw, there is a muscle called the masseter muscle. This is a very powerful muscle that is used in chewing.

This muscle becomes bigger in patients that tend to grind teeth at night. Most Asians tend to have bigger masseter muscles.

By using Botox, this muscle can be paralyzed and reduced around three to six months. However, this does not address the bone issue.

It is strictly muscle hypertrophy. However, many patients have achieved a great result, but this is only a temporary result. They must get this shot every six months.

Botox is a neuromodulator and is injected directly into the muscles of the face to keep them from contracting. Doing so reduces the depth and overall appearance of the dynamic wrinkles and folds that can develop over time with smiling, laughing, frowning, and other facial expressions.
Dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by muscles of facial expression are best addressed with Botox versus dermal fillers and other injectables available with Dr. Edmund Kwan. The more common areas where Botox is used include the forehead folds, the glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and around the eyes to treat crow’s feet. These are the areas in which Botox is FDA-approved for use.
Botox is a procedure that is used to reduce contractions in the muscles. It is not only used for cosmetic purposes such as the treatment of wrinkles and folds but has been used for years for other medical purposes, such as the treatment of chronic migraines and overactive jaw muscles.
Most patients who use Botox for cosmetic facial purposes will find that their results will last three to six months before patients need to have additional injections performed. That is required to maintain the results and slow the overall signs of aging with time.
It takes several days for the results of Botox to be fully recognized. It may take up to a week for the results to show, and these will maintain for several months before patients schedule a follow-up injection to maintain these changes with time.
Absolutely! When Botox is injected by a professional such as Dr. Edmund Kwan, it will not inhibit your ability to make facial expressions. That only occurs if too much Botox is injected. Patients must realize that slight changes will happen, but the results will appear natural, and patients will not look as though they’ve had "work done" when performed correctly.
In rare instances, some patients may experience an allergic reaction to Botox injections. Patients must understand all the risks that come with these injections, as with any other medical treatment.
Most patients may have mild side effects following their injections, such as redness and itching at the injection site. It is often short-term and will fade on its own over several days. In rare instances, a patient might have an allergic reaction to their injection and should be seen by a professional if this occurs.
To maintain the first Botox treatment results, patients will want to book a follow-up appointment three to six months later. The effects of Botox will decrease with time, and the dynamic wrinkles and folds will reappear if reinjection is not completed on time.
There isn’t recovery time like there is for plastic surgery. Many patients have their injections done during their lunch break and return to work immediately after. If you are worried about redness and itching for a few days after, you can schedule your Botox injections after work on Friday and return to work and social activities on Monday morning.
During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Edmund Kwan, patients can determine if they are the right candidate for Botox. Most adult patients with mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles will find Botox to be an excellent fit for them, especially if they want to avoid costly and invasive plastic surgeries until necessary. Botox injections can delay these procedures and help patients look youthful until the time comes for plastic surgery.
To speak to Dr. Edmund Kwan about forgoing plastic surgery and instead using Botox injections to maintain a youthful appearance, call any one of his three convenient office locations in the areas of Manhattan, Flushing, and New Jersey. He can educate individuals on the options available at his practice and help them make an educated decision regarding the best solution for their unique needs.
