Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections that improve natural features and restore a more youthful look. Though Botox and fillers provide similar benefits, they have different uses.
Botox, or botulinum rejuvenation, is an injection that temporarily reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, the wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
When you smile or frown, your facial muscles create groves that fold the skin. As you get older, your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity. It becomes more difficult to smooth itself out after repeated folding caused by your facial expressions.
Botox stops the muscle activity that creates the grooves, giving the skin time to relax and smooth out.
Fillers are gel-like injections that add volume to your skin. In addition to losing strength and elasticity, your skin also thins and loses volume as you get older. This causes skin sagging, creating facial creases like the lines that form at the corner of your nose and run down to the corner of your mouth.
Fillers restore this lost volume and fill in these lines and creases.
Anyone experiencing the visible signs of aging can benefit from Botox and fillers.
Botox treats crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. Fillers fill in lines and creases that form around the mouth and chin. They also plump up thin lips, add fullness to cheeks, and lift a down-turned mouth.
Cleaver Medical Group Dermatology offers Botox and fillers, but that doesn’t mean you’ll need both treatments. At your cosmetic dermatology consultation, your dermatologist asks detailed questions about your concerns and goals.
They examine your skin and provide recommendations that best meet your needs, which can include Botox, fillers, or both.
Your dermatologist at Cleaver Medical Group Dermatology customizes your Botox and fillers treatment plan based on your beauty needs and goals. They review the details at your consultation so that you know what to expect.
Botox injections are quick, painless, and well-tolerated without a topical anesthetic. For fillers, your provider can apply a numbing agent before starting treatment.
The results of Botox injections can take up to a week to appear. The results from filler injections are immediately visible.
Your Botox injections last up to four months, while fillers last six or more months, depending on which filler is used.
Cleaver Medical Group Dermatology recommends scheduling your next Botox or filler injection appointment as soon as you notice the effects wearing off. Regular cosmetic injections prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
