Botox and Fillers

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment to smooth crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. It contains botulinum toxin A, which relaxes the muscles in the treatment area to temporarily reduce the look of wrinkles.

Botox is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe lines on the forehead and around the eyes. These wrinkles often form over the years as a result of repetitive facial expressions like squinting or raising your eyebrows. 

With Botox, treatment takes just 10 minutes. You can expect to notice smoothing of lines and wrinkles in the next 24 to 48 hours. Botox is not permanent, and you will need regular treatments at Eye Care & Surgery to maintain results.

What are dermal fillers?

While Botox targets lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles below the surface of the skin, dermal fillers fight wrinkles by replacing lost volume. 

One common cause of facial wrinkles is loss of volume and sagging skin; dermal fillers use an injectable solution to plump skin and fill wrinkles. Dermal fillers can improve the look of:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Marionette lines
  • Smile lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Thin lips

Many dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that stimulates collagen production in your skin to replace volume and erase the look of lines and wrinkles. 

Results are instant with dermal filler treatment, and they can last anywhere from four months to nearly two years. 

Are Botox and fillers right for me?

The best wrinkle-reducing treatment for you depends on your area of concern. Every person’s face is unique, and the team at Eye Care & Surgery can develop a treatment plan personalized for you.

Botox is a good treatment option for patients who are bothered by wrinkles that come from repeated facial expressions on the forehead or around the eyes. 

For patients who are unhappy with lines around their nose and mouth, or who have thinning lips or sunken cheeks, dermal fillers may be a good choice. 

For a significantly more youthful look, you can combine Botox and dermal fillers. Using Botox to minimize forehead and eye wrinkles and dermal fillers to volumize the lower face delivers a liquid facelift effect without the need for cosmetic surgery. 

If fine lines and wrinkles have you feeling less than your best, it’s time to learn more about cosmetic injectables.
