What Is Botox?
Botox is a purified toxin, which for a moment eases the muscle movements responsible for causing creases and lines to form on your face. Botox injections can soften crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines between your brows, and horizontal forehead furrows.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of mild-to-moderate fine lines, wrinkles, and hollow contours, which develop due to aging. As your skin matures, it begins to produce less of the compounds responsible for plumping, hydrating, and softening your skin’s appearance. Dermal fillers restore the hyaluronic acid, an organic skin compound, to create a more youthful appearance.
What Skin Problems Do Botox and Fillers Injections Treat?
Botox and fillers treat a wide range of skin problems associated with aging, including smile lines, thinning lips, forehead furrows, vertical lines around the lips, crow’s feet, marionette lines, frown lines, and hollow contours in the cheeks.
If you wish to smooth out your appearance, discuss the Botox and filler treatment with Dr. Giraldo. Dermal fillers are available in various formulas, each of which is perfect at addressing a particular skin concern. After understanding your unique aesthetic needs and goals, Dr. Giraldo develops a personalized treatment plan for you.
Are Botox and Filler Injections Painful?
Botox and filler injections involve using a needle, you might feel a pinch and a slight sensation as the treatment enters your skin. The treatments offer drastic results, and many people tolerate them perfectly. Some formulations comprise lidocaine to ease any discomfort you may experience. If you are worried about discomfort, consult with Dr. Giraldo about using a topical anesthetic before treatment.
How Long Do Botox and Filler Results Last?
Dermal fillers are a non-permanent solution to wrinkles, fine lines, and other aging skin problems. The actual time your treatment lasts varies according to the type of filler used, your body’s metabolism, and the area treated. But generally, the results from dermal fillers last from six up to 18 months.
To ensure you maintain your new youthful look, you should schedule additional treatments often. On the other hand, Botox relaxes the lines and wrinkles for up to three or four months. Like fillers, you’ll also need to create a schedule of continuous treatments to maintain your look. Consult with Dr. Giraldo to create a regular schedule for your dermal fillers or Botox injections.
That said, wrinkle-reducing injections such as Botox and fillers offer drastic and desirable results. To determine if you are the right candidate for these treatments, schedule a New Dimension Dentistry consultation today through mobile or book online.
