Dr. Joel Schlessinger was recently featured in an article on iVillage.com entitled “Are These High-Maintenance Cosmetic Procedures Worth Going Under the Knife For?” While this article discusses everything from tummy tucks to face lifts, Dr. Joel Schlessinger commented on fillers and Botox-like treatments that he performs in Omaha.

Botox treatments

Dr. Joel Schlessinger said results from a Botox procedure last approximately three months.

“These treatments need ongoing maintenance,” he said. “The face returns to close its original look in most people, but with some benefits that last. The nicest benefit is when a frowning person is ‘retrained’ not to frown.”

Some people end up holding their face in a certain way that causes wrinkles. Botox injections interrupt this pattern and force them out of their furrow, causing the face to appear more natural and relaxed.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger recommends that patients should return every three months to maintain the frown-free look.

Lip fillers

Dr. Joel Schlessinger says that lip fillers last five to six months on average.

“If you are a whistler, smoker or gum chewer, they don’t last quite as long,” he said. Dr. Joel Schlessinger uses Belotero, Restylane and Juvederm for a fuller, plumper pout.

“Subtlety is key,” he said and recommended that a refill should be performed after six months. Touch-ups sooner than six months can lead to abnormal or overdone lips.
