Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections that rejuvenate your look. However, these injections work differently.
Botox is a popular cosmetic injection that temporarily reduces the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Dynamic wrinkles form from repetitive facial movements.
When you squint or frown, your facial muscles create visible wrinkles in your skin. As you age and your skin loses its natural elasticity and strength, the repetitive folding creates permanent creases.
Botox works by temporarily inhibiting muscle movement that causes visible wrinkles.
Fillers, also called dermal fillers, add volume under the skin, filling in facial lines and wrinkles. The layer of fat under your skin also diminishes with age, making your skin loose and saggy. Fillers restore this lost volume, enhancing your appearance.
In addition to lines and wrinkles, fillers plump up thin lips, lift saggy cheeks, and fill in depressed acne scars.
If you have lines around your eyes and mouth that you want to fix, you might benefit from both Botox and fillers.
The aesthetics experts at Medical Arts Associates P.S. determine what injection makes the best choice for you after a consultation. The family medicine and primary care practice offers many aesthetic services, including facial skin revitalization, thread lifting, and body sculpting.
Medical Arts Associates P.S. does everything possible to make you feel comfortable during your Botox and filler treatment. They explain their plan to you so you know what to expect.
Botox injections are quick and cause a slight pinching sensation during the injection. Most people tolerate Botox very well. Consider Laser Genesis for wrinkle reduction without the needles.
Fillers may require several injections to get the look you want. The team may apply a numbing agent before the injections to minimize discomfort.
You can expect improvements in your appearance immediately after your filler injections. Results from Botox may take a week or more to appear.
Botox and fillers are temporary, but you can repeat the injections to maintain your youthful look.
