Last evening, I attended a Facial Remodelling workshop organised by facial remodelling expert, Dr Z. Facial remodelling is a procedure whereby you use Botox ® and a filler like Juvederm ® to enhance facial features. For example, Botox ® is used to contour the jaw line and slim down the face and Juvederm ® is used to create a nose bridge, cheekbones and even a sharper chin!
This is the latest facial enhancement procedure that is gaining popularity as it is non-invasive and has no downtime. In fact, Dr Z says that it has been referred to as the “Friday Party Nose” as you can literally get a sharper nose in minutes and then head out to a party!
The only downside is that is it not permanent. Botox ® can last for about 4 months (the more often you do it, the longer its effects apparently) while fillers can last from 4 to 18 months (shorter for smokers, great reason to quit!). It costs from $200 for jawline up to $3,000 for a full face procedure.
Well, I kinda like that it is not permanent as I would like to be able to modify my features to suit my face as I age (argh! hate that word). I also like the fact that I don’t have to go under the knife and that it is quite painless. Fillers are also made from hylauronic acid, which is a substance that is already found in our body, so it is natural. Enough talking, I’ll let the pictures do the talking below:
