Botox injections work for up to three months, after which the nerve endings recover and become active. Most people will notice an increase in movement soon after this and by 6 months the movement will be pretty much to where it was at the beginning.

Dermal Fillers are based on a substance that is found naturally in skin, called Hyaluronic Acid. It is safe, (when administered by a Qualified Practioner) and has a low allergy potential. Its job is to volumise the skin or lips and well as smoothing out wrinkles.

As with any procedure there are side effects and your Doctor will discuss treatment in more detail with you.

Bruising is the most common side effect with Botox and Dermal Filler. Not everyone bruises and we cannot guarantee no bruising but most bruises resolve within a week.

Your Doctor will discuss the less common and rare side effects of treatment with you. 

Manufactures state that fillers last anywhere between 6 to 9 months. Some individual may find the results go beyond this time frame. A lot has to do with skin type and requirements.

It is possible to get resistant to Botox, especially if you have it too often. If this happens a change of Botox is recommended or just a break. In my experience treatments become effective once again after a break.

Yes and with 9 years experience Peachy Health is your safe choice! Dermal Filler for Lips is very popular and good technique is required to achieve desired results. Better definition and more Volume when done precisely, look great.

We believe it is better to administer one syringe at a time, with a 2 week gap to allow bruising to settle down)

Overall it may require 3 syringes to get the lips you want.  Slow and steady achieves best results.

This deserves special consideration and I would advise a detailed discussion with the Doctor before embarking on treatment.
