BOTOX and Dermal Fillers

Taking care of your skin through proper skin care as you age can help you prevent skin damage and slow the appearance of aging. However, even the best skin care routine can only do so much to keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful.

To combat the aging process, may men and women are turning to minimally invasive procedures like Botox and other botulin injectable therapies that can help reduce lines that appear on the face.

Botox is often used in combination with dermal fillers to get rid of these lines, as well as enhance the face’s natural features.

Botox Injections or Dermal Fillers?

Most people are unclear about the difference between Botox (botulin) and fillers, and which they should get for a more youthful face. To put it simply:

  • If the creases are only able to be seen when you make facial expressions, then Botulin is probably your best option.
  • If the creases are visible when you are at rest and not made any worse by facial expressions, then fillers would probably be best for you.
  • If the creases are visible when you are at rest and get worse when you make facial expressions, then a combination of both Botulin and fillers is in order.

In addition, fillers can be used to enhance your natural beauty by creating fuller lips or enhancing cheekbones to create a more desirable facial contour.

Botox and Other Botulin Injectable Therapy

Botox is one of the most common botulin injections and is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This injectable uses the botulinum toxin to block chemical signals in the nerves. This stops the muscle from being able to contract, so you no longer see small lines on the face. 

If you have lines and wrinkles that are only visible when you make a facial expression, this product will prevent these lines from being seen. 

Botox isn’t the only botulinum toxin used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. At Metropolitan Vein Aesthetic Center, we also offer Dysport and Juvaderm. Each injectable differs slightly in effect and price. 

Be sure to speak to your Botox specialist to decide which botulin injection is right for you. 

Other Surprising Uses for Botox

Removing fine lines and wrinkles isn’t the only thing that Botox is good for. This botulin injection is used to treat other medical issues, such as: 

  • Hyperhidrosis/Excess sweating
  • Cervical dystonia
  • Migraines
  • Lazy eye
  • Eye twitching

What to Expect from Your Botox Procedure

Botox and other botulin injections are minimally invasive, and patients feel little to no discomfort. The procedure is done right in your doctor’s office with a tiny needle to inject the toxin into your skin. After your appointment, you are free to go home and resume normal activities

Results typically can be seen within three days after your treatment and normally last for at least three months. To maintain results, speak to your Botox specialist about the recommended frequency of injections and which injectable is right for you. Results may vary depending on which method of therapy you choose. 

Dermal Fillers

Unline Botox, dermal fillers are used to reduce lines that can be seen on the face when your face is at rest. These fillers help to restore volume to your face and reduce the appearance of deep lines, making your face look more youthful and healthy. 

Dermal fillers can also help enhance natural features on the face to combat the early signs of aging, including:

  • Plump lips
  • Reduce lines around the forehead, nose, and mouth
    • Smile lines
    • Nasolabial folds
    • Marionette lines
    • Worrylines 
  • Fill sunken areas of the face
  • Decrease the appearance of recessed scars
  • Enhance cheekbones
  • Smooth out vertical lines

Dermal fillers work by injecting gel-based material into your skin, revitalizing, and adding volume to your skin instantly. At Metropolitan Vein Aesthetic Center, we offer a wide range of different types of cosmetic filler, including: 

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Belotero
  • Radiesse 
  • Voluma
  • Bellafill

These different cosmetic fillers are each made of different substances tp obtain different results. Speak with your dermal filler specialist about the results you are looking for. Your doctor will then help you determine which treatment is right for you. 

The goal is to provide long-lasting, natural results. These treatments are longer lasting than Botox and are often used in conjunction with botulin injectables. The procedure is done right in the doctor’s office with minimal discomfort, and results can be seen immediately.
