Are you considering Botox® or dermal fillers to feel and appear younger and more vibrant? You’re not alone. Many women, and yes, men, around the globe have been flocking to injectable anti-aging techniques. Injectables such as Botox, Xeomin® and Juvéderm® give you a natural, youthful look without breaking the bank or requiring you to go under the knife.
Here is your guide to neurotoxins such as Botox and dermal fillers, including how they benefit you and how to get the wrinkle-free results you desire. So, throw out your misconceptions or preconceived ideas about injectables, and get the facts!
What Are Neurotoxins and What Results Can You Expect From Them?
Neurotoxins including Botox are the most popular cosmetic procedure in the US. They contain a safe, effective purified substance that’s derived from bacteria, botulinum toxin A. Neurotoxins are used to block nerve signals to the injected muscle, causing it to relax and smoothen, and work best on dynamic wrinkles, or those which are only present when muscles contract.
There are many benefits associated with Botox and other neurotoxins, including softening a square jaw line and removal of fine lines and wrinkles including crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines. Botox can also lift corners of the mouth. Results usually last 3 to 6 months, after which injections can be repeated.
What Are Dermal Fillers, and What Results Can You Expect From Them?
Dermal fillers including Radiesse® and Restylane® are a safe, effective treatment to eliminate fine lines and restore facial volume. Many fillers contain a hyaluronic acid gel, which has been approved by the FDA for the purpose of filling in wrinkles and restoring fullness that was depleted from the aging process. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body to hydrate and nourish your skin. Dermal filters also encourage your body’s natural production of collagen, which allows them to keep working long after your injection to maintain your results for longer periods of time.
There are many, many benefits to dermal fillers. They reduce or eliminate the appearance of laugh lines, vertical lip lines, parenthesis, and marionette lines. Fillers also restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples, chin creases, and other areas, as well as plump lips and improve facial symmetry. Results from fillers vary depending on the type used and area applied, with some lasting up to two years.
Botox or Dermal Fillers: Which Is Best?
The beauty of injectables is that you don’t have to choose just one, as both Botox and dermal fillers can safely be used together. When used simultaneously, you see more dramatic, longer lasting results.
