Botox, Hyaluronic Acid, and Radiesse

With highly popular treatments like Botox, Hyaluronic Acid, and Calcium Hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), signs of aging are significantly reduced. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), nearly 579,000 non-surgical procedures involving injectables were performed in Brazil in 2015. Rio de Janeiro is responsible for a significant amount of Brazil’s plastic surgery operations. Dr. Alexandre Charão has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Botox Prevents and Reduces Wrinkles

Approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Botox is a very safe product. Although Botox is the most popular brand, Dr. Alexandre Charão offers various options. All recommended products create results which last for 5-6 months. The frequency of touch up applications and extent of results varies by brand. To stop new wrinkles from forming, botulinum toxin (Botox) is inserted between nerves and muscles of a patient’s forehead and eye region. Dr. Alexandre Charão follows strict guidelines, updated annually, from the American Academy of Dermatology.

This non-invasive treatment prevents muscle contractions in the face, which helps smooth and firm the skin. Lines and wrinkles, caused by natural facial movements and expressions, are corrected with Botox. These signs of aging are especially prominent in the forehead, above the nose, around the mouth, and in the neck region. In addition to creating a smooth face, Botox prevents the formation of deep wrinkles and other facial lines like crow’s feet. Botox is also used to treat and correct excessive sweating in the armpits and palms (hyperhidrosis) and facial asymmetries caused by paralysis.

Hyaluronic Acid & Calcium Hydroxyapatite (Radiesse)

By adding volume to specific facial regions to eliminate existing wrinkles, dark circles, and contouring, these simple treatments only target the skin and not the muscle. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in the human body, which means there is a very low risk of body rejection. Depending on your skin and area of focus, the effects of Hyaluronic Acid can last for 9-18 months. Calcium Hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) delivers results which can last for up to 1.5 years. Like Botox, this treatment also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin to eliminate wrinkles.

Your Initial Consultation

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

As you are researching Botox, Hyaluronic Acid, and Radiesse procedures, it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help give Dr. Alexandre Charão a clear idea of your desired results, you should provide a young photo of your face. In addition to discussing your needs with Dr. Alexandre Charão, you should also consult a dermatologist to recommend the best solution for you.

Procedure & Results

Although expensive creams can help improve your skin, they do not come close to what Botox, Hyaluronic Acid, and Radiesse can achieve. Dr. Alexandre Charão’s non-invasive facial procedures are quick and painless. He uses an anaesthetic ointment to eliminate pain and discomfort from each injection. The results are quick, but not immediate, and may take up to 1 week to appear. You should plan your treatment in advance, especially if you have an upcoming social event.
