Everyone has their opinions about Botox, Dysport and Filler (such as Juvederm, Voluma, Sculptra….and so on.) How do you know which one is for you? Well, it depends where your areas of concern lie. If your crow’s feet, middle brow (also called the elevens) or forehead wrinkles are the issue, you need Botox or Dysport. If sagging jowls, flattening of the cheeks and/or lips are the issue, you need filler. But there are a million options of how both types can be helpful.
What Are Facial Fillers?
If you’ve ever considered cosmetic procedures, the odds are good that you’ve heard of facial fillers. These are also called dermal fillers and are intended to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, while restoring skin’s plumpness. As people age, the amount of collagen naturally produced by the body wans, which can leave skin looking wrinkly and thin.
If you are experiencing thinning facial skin and more pronounced wrinkles, now might be the perfect time for you to consider filler injections. Some common questions about facial fillers have been answered below. This minimally invasive treatment option is ideal for people who want to restore their skin’s once-youthful look!
Are There Different Kinds of Facial Fillers?
The short answer to this question is simply yes. There are a wide variety of dermal filler options on the market. Sculptra and Juvaderm are especially popular brand names used at Dayton Skin Care. Before you decide on a type of filler, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified physicians. This way, you can assess your individual needs and determine what type of injection is really best for you.
What Exactly Do Facial Fillers Do?
Before you undergo your initial facial filler treatment, it’s important for you to understand that these injections do have certain limitations. They are quite successful at plumping lips, filling-in fine lines, and reshaping deep facial contours. Learn more about Facial Fillers online.
What Exactly Does Botox/Dysport Do?
Botox and Dysport (also know as Wrinkle Relaxers) suppresses the movement of muscles in your face stopping the formation of wrinkles. Both targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Our nurse will inject these muscles with Botox to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows. It works great to prevent and reverse wrinkling in the following areas.
Are the Results Permanent?
Although facial fillers and wrinkle relaxers have almost immediate results, they are not permanent. You will need to work with your doctor to develop a treatment schedule that works for you. The number of times per year you will need to get injections will depend upon the kind of facial filler or wrinkle relaxer you choose and the goals you have for your appearance.
