Botox and Dermal Fillers: Benefits and Differences

Have you thought about Botox or dermal fillers, but you were not sure what would be the best treatment. Here are some basics to help you understand the benefits and differences.

Botox is a purified botulinum toxin that allows the muscles to relax. Other botulinum toxin products available include Dysport and Xeomin. While they have slight differences, they all work via the same mechanism of action and yield essentially the same results. Wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes dramatically improve with treatment, minimizing visible lines on the upper face. This treatment is a great preventative measure to keep lines from forming or getting deeper. After treatment, results are seen within 2 to 3 days with the full effects being achieved at 7 to 10. There is very little downtime after the procedure. The effects will last about 3 to 4 months.

MARCH SPECIAL: $75 OFF any single syringe  OR $100 each syringe when buying 2 or more syringes of Vollure or Voluma.   Must be used in a single visit by 3/31/18.

Dermal fillers are used to soften lines and provide volume in the mid to lower face.  There are several fillers available such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Voluma.  Choosing the correct filler is important and should be selected by your professional skin care provider.  Several syringes may be required during a visit to obtain optimal results.  The effects are noticeable immediately but the final effect can be seen after 2 weeks or more.  Results will last up to a year, sometimes longer.

Botox and dermal fillers are wonderful anti-aging tools and can take years off your skin.  These treatments can help you look more refreshed yet still look natural.  It is best to start with small changes and progress as needed.  Remember, there is always the option to do more and gradual changes create a more natural appearance.
