Age Your Way with Injectable Treatments
Advertisements about injectables and Botox are everywhere, but if you are interested in reversing the effects of your aging skin, it is essential to understand the similarities and distinctions between them. To ensure you know the facts surrounding Botox and Dermal Fillers, we want you to be as informed as possible so that we may assist you in making the best treatment choices possible. Drs. Ellen and Scott Antoine have served the Indianapolis region for over two decades, helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
Fine lines and wrinkles may be reduced or prevented using injectables (also known as facial or dermal fillers) and Botox, both popular cosmetic treatments. These solutions are non-surgical and delivered by a series of injections into the specific locations you have identified as areas of concern. Additionally, both dermal fillers and Botox are commonly administered in-office. However, the similarities between the two approaches end here and vastly differ in how they work.
Botox is a purified natural bacterium that operates by temporarily paralyzing your facial muscles. These repetitive muscle movements are often responsible for forming wrinkles and fine lines. When Botox is used to freeze these muscles, they relax, and the tension on the skin is reduced.
Botox is used to treat Crow's feet, horizontal lines on the forehead, and vertical lines between the brows. It is a temporary wrinkle treatment. However, you may need to continue treatments to maintain optimal results. Botox treatments usually last three to four months.
Dermal fillers may make your face appear smoother and fuller by filling in lines and wrinkles and "plumping" the contours of your face. In addition, acne scars may typically be improved with dermal filler operations, as well as age-related face fat loss.
Many injectable fillers also help boost your body's natural collagen production, which reduces as you get older. Smooth, bright, and young skin is built on the foundation of healthy collagen production. Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and are considered safe and effective. Most injectable dermal fillers are only temporary and require follow-up therapy to maintain results. However, injectable fillers may be right for you if you want to obtain smoother, fuller, and firmer face skin without undergoing significant surgery.
