Services offered by Dr. Lam
The botox injection is designed to be a simple and safe procedure. A tiny micro needle is used, a very small amount is injected, very precisely, into the desired area of the body. The needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, therefore, the pain is said to be minimal. Most patients compare the sensation of a botox® injection to a bug bite. The injection works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles. This allows them to relax, smoothing out wrinkles and frown lines. Typically you should be able to resume normal activities immediately. You can drive yourself to and from the appointment. It is not uncommon to experience slight temporary bruising or swelling at the botox injection site. This can be covered with make-up and treated with ice.
As we age, we lose volume in our face and cheeks and wrinkles appear. Our skin sags, and our cheeks look hollow. Dermal fillers restore your facial volume, fill out your wrinkles, and return your skin to a more youthful state. Dermal filler are the most popular and effective fillers we use for wrinkle treatment. They contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in our joints. The fillers are strategically and artfully injected into your cheeks, forehead, and temples to provide the perfect amount of volume. Your skin will plump up, wrinkles will be filled in, and your skin will return to a more youthful state. Almost immediately you will look younger and have healthier looking skin.
