Inexperienced injectors often use too much product when injecting Botox or fillers, or place them in the incorrect area for a patient’s face. This results in an unnatural look—either “frozen” from too much Botox or “overfilled” from too much dermal filler. At Reflections Center, injections are done by physicians like Dr. Renata Wix-Harris, who understand how to properly place the right amount of product for effective, natural-looking results. Our patient Audrey shares her experience with her consultation, procedure, and results.
Audrey originally came to Reflections Center to address a ptosis, or drooping, on her left eye. “I am facing plastic surgery there, and I’m afraid of it,” she explains. However, Dr. Wix-Harris found a non-surgical solution for Audrey through Botox and fillers to “stave off the inevitable.” Audrey adds that “the ‘plastic’ look from Botox is very much a concern of mine, and Dr. Wix-Harris assured me she was using a very small amount.” This ensures that Audrey maintains a natural look and is free to express herself.
In addition to Botox, Audrey later chose to have filler in her chin for a more defined look. She previously thought that a chin implant was her only option for her receding chin, but was surprised to find that after receiving filler injections from Dr. Wix-Harris, “in a matter of minutes, I had a chin.”
It is much more comfortable than going to the dentist for a tooth cleaning.
During her Botox procedure, Audrey was “pleasantly surprised” and felt little to no pain. “It is much more comfortable than going to the dentist for a tooth cleaning,” she says. Following the procedure, she also faced zero downtime and had “absolutely no issues whatsoever.”
After Botox or filler injections, you may find some swelling or redness at the injection site, which should quickly dissipate. However, side effects are minimal, and you will be able to return to your normal routine immediately after your appointment at Reflections Center.
“I’ve only told two people about it and yet several people have mentioned that I look happier and well-rested.“
In addition to looking more youthful, Audrey also noticed some small, simple improvements after having Botox injections. “It’s easier to put on mascara, it doesn’t smudge against my eyelid as much. Eyeliner tends to stay more put.” Her friends and family have noticed a change, but it isn’t too obvious that she’s had a procedure done and she still looks like herself. “I’ve only told two people about it, and yet several people have mentioned that I look happier and well-rested. Those are the comments I’ve been getting.” Despite these positive and noticeable results, Audrey can still freely express herself. “I still have movement in my forehead,” she explains. “I didn’t want that ‘plank’ look, and I didn’t get it. I’m very happy with it.”
