What do Botox and fillers do?
Botox and fillers are designed to smooth and better contour your skin, but each type of injectable works differently. Below are descriptions of how Botox and fillers enhance your skin and face.
Botox, which continues to remain the leading injectable of its kind, is a botulinum solution. When injected, purified botulinum proteins in Botox temporarily block cell signaling involved in muscle contractions — like the ones that occur when you smile or frown. This forces muscles to relax almost instantly, so skin smooths out.
The beauty behind Botox is that the injections are designed to target specific muscles. While these targeted muscles relax, surrounding muscles function normally. Your results are entirely natural (no “frozen” look).
Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, are gel-like substances made of a proprietary blend of synthetic hyaluronic acid. Not only do fillers add instant volume to areas where you’ve lost plumpness (or never had it), they attract moisture, so your results are entirely natural-looking and feeling.
Plus, as hyaluronic acid breaks down over time, it stimulates collagen production. Because of this, your skin continues to become firmer and tighter week after week.
Which areas can be treated with Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are safe and effective solutions for targeting just about all imperfections you may have. Some of the most common treatment areas are listed below.
Botox is ideal for resolving many of those age-related lines and wrinkles on your face. You can get Botox to minimize the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines between your brows
Dermal fillers, including Juvéderm, can fill in lines and wrinkles and help contour your face. You can get filler injections to:
- Plump your lips
- Lift your cheeks
- Soften nasolabial folds
- Resolve smile or smoker’s lines
At Ultimate Health Medical Clinic, your entire injectable service is customizable to you. Your dedicated practitioner may be able to treat other concerns you may have as well.
How long do Botox and fillers last?
Both Botox and fillers provide long-lasting results. Botox, for instance, tends to leave you with smoother, younger-looking skin for up to four months. Dermal fillers can provide optimal benefits for anywhere from 12-24 months, depending on which product you select and your specific treatment area.
When you come to Ultimate Health Medical Clinic for your injectable consultation, your provider can let you know about how long your specific service is going to last. Once you start noticing the reappearance of lines and wrinkles, or volume loss, it’s safe to have your injectable treatment performed again.
