About Me

my journey to a rejuvenated self

When you look in the mirror each day, do you like what you see? Do you tug at the skin on your face to pull the wrinkles away? If you don't like the aged appearance of your face, now is probably a good time to begin thinking about having one or two cosmetic procedures performed. I had struggled with my self-esteem for a few years before I broke down and had a few procedures done on my face. To learn more about my journey to a rejuvenated self, visit my website. There, you will learn about each procedure that I had performed and what the recovery time was like.

Botox And Dermal Filler Treatment Services That Benefit Your Cosmetic Conditions

A lot of people show signs of wrinkles, fine lines, and furrows on their facial skin as they age. Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments that can remove these aging signs from your face. You can also use dermal fillers to correct wrinkles and other cosmetic conditions.

Botox And Dermal Fillers

One of the benefits you achieve from undergoing Botox is that results of the treatment last for a long time, and you can return to have touch-ups whenever you need follow-up treatment. Some people also undergo dermal filler treatment as a separate treatment, but there are others who undergo Botox and filler treatments during one treatment procedure.

The Botox Treatments 

The professional who treats you administers a direct injection into problem areas such as your frown lines, wrinkles or furrows. That injection paralyzes the muscle lying beneath those featured areas, and all of the offending features then become smooth and free of unwanted lines. Botox also reduces the muscle activity that is responsible for creating crow's feet and laugh lines.

The Dermal Filler Factor

As you age, you also lose facial volume. You lose the natural hyaluronic acid and collagen that plumped up your skin and helped your body to retain water while you were young. Dermal fillers contain synthetic hyaluronic acid, which helps to hold in water at the injection site. That activity temporally plumps up your skin and adds volume to your skin. 

What Else Fillers Do

Industry professionals say that fillers boost the natural levels of collagen that your body needs to retain supple and youthful-looking skin. Fillers are mostly used to treat loss of volume in your cheeks and chin. They are also used to treat laugh lines and aging skin on your hands.

Understand The Difference Between Dermal Fillers And Botox

Knowing the difference between dermal fillers and Botox and what you should expect from both procedures will help you to clearly express what exactly your needs are when you arrive for your first consultation appointment.

Fillers For Inactive Wrinkles

Facial fillers are used to treat inactive wrinkles that can be seen when your face is at rest. If your face looks gaunt and your look is attributed to volume loss, facial fillers can successfully treat that condition.

Botox For Active Wrinkles

Botox is recommended for active wrinkles that appear when your face is in motion, such as when you are expressing your feelings during a conversation. If you plan on undergoing a combined procedure, remember to give that information to the professional who will be administering the injections.
