Botox & Dermal Fillers: Everything You Need to Know
November 13, 2023

Botox and Dermal Fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years and for good reason! They offer a minimally invasive way to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance without the downtime and risks associated with traditional cosmetic surgery.

(Yes – that means you can look younger in just one lunch hour!)

What is Botox? 

Botox is a powerful neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

When injected into the muscles of the face, Botox and other brand name neuromodulators can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions in various areas of the face. Ie: frown lines, crows feet and bunny lines for example.

The effects typically last for 3-6 months, after which the treatment should be repeated to keep the look.

Since this treatment is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime, it’s a popular and safe choice!

What is Dermal Filler?

Dermal Fillers, on the other hand, are injectable gels that are used to restore volume and smooth out deeper crevices on the face and build a contour for facial symmetry. They are typically made from hyaluronic acid compound, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin.

This non-invasive treatment is ideal for reviving areas such as the lips and cheeks, which can lose volume over time, as well as contouring treatments to improve facial structures for a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Dermal Fillers can be used to enhance features like the jawline, lips, temples, under-eye areas, and to address heavy creases in the mid-face.

The effects of Derma Fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.
