What Is Botox?
Botox is a non-surgical, cosmetic treatment used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botox rejuvenates and relaxes the muscles that cause forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, and more undesirable blemishes. Throughout our lives, we repeat the same facial expressions, which makes it difficult for those muscle groups to relax and eventually forms wrinkles. Botox attack the root cause of wrinkles: repeated muscle use. Botox is an FDA-approved treatment to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better and less intense. Botox is a quick and effective treatment with minimal downtime, with injections lasting a brief 10 minutes. Typically, results can be seen in 24 to 48 hours, with full results being visible in just 14 days. Results can remain from three months to one year, depending on the amount of Botox used during treatment.
What Are Fillers?
Fillers are a non-surgical, cosmetic treatment used to plump lips, smooth lines, as well as lift and contour cheeks. While Botox alleviates lighter wrinkles, fillers focus on medium-to-deep wrinkles. Fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body that aids in maintaining collagen and elastin proteins. When we age, our hyaluronic acid decreases. Because of this, fillers are an excellent choice for adding back volume to the face, lips, and other sites where volume has been lost. Filler injections last a brief 15 minutes, and results remain between six months to one year after injections.
