Botox v. Fillers
You've decided you are ready to invest in yourself and help smooth out those wrinkles. Now what? Which should you choose for those pesky lines? Botox or fillers? Here is a guide to help you get started:
Botox is just one of the injectable wrinkle reducers on the market. You may also hear the names Dysport and Xeomin when discussing Botox as these are direct competitors. Your provider can help you determine which is the best fit for you. Botox and its competitors work by relaxing the area where it is administered. Think of it as ironing out a wrinkle. It can be used across the forehead, in between the brows, and around the eyes. Other places amenable to Botox are the chin, neck, lip, and jawline. You can expect results in about 2 weeks and for the treatment to last about 3 to 4 months.
Fillers can be used to 'fill up' deeper facial folds and to plump areas that have experienced volume loss. Fillers are used in areas around the mouth, lips, cheeks, tear troughs, and scars. Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero are some of the more popular fillers for these applications. Fillers give an immediate result and can last up to 6 to 8 months and longer, depending on the treatment area and amount.
Many times a combination of treatments can be used to help you achieve your desired look. Your provider will listen to your concerns and help you develop a treatment plan.
