Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a customizable treatment that tackles moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles for up to four months.

Botox is FDA-approved to improve the look of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows (11 lines)
  • Horizontal forehead lines

All these wrinkles form with repeated facial expressions. Your skin creases when you smile, squint, frown, and raise your eyebrows because the muscles under your skin contract with each expression. Over time, those creases set into your skin, and you’re left with wrinkles.

Botox contains a purified toxin that gently relaxes the muscles where injected. As a result, the wrinkles disappear from view, and your skin looks smoother.

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers address another common sign of aging skin: loss of volume. As you age, your skin gets thinner and more delicate. You lose facial fat, and your skin begins to look sunken or saggy.

Fillers restore lost volume to give you a plumper, more youthful look. They’re customizable, and they can treat several areas across your face. Depending on which facial filler you choose, results can last from six months to two years.

Fillers might be right for you if you’re bothered by:

  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thinning lips
  • Under-eye shadows

Most facial fillers contain hyaluronic acid or a similar substance. Hyaluronic acid is a gel that attracts moisture and adds volume to your skin.

Which cosmetic injectables are right for me?

Dr. Aaronson & Associates offers the best in cosmetic injectables, and the team works with you to develop a customized treatment plan. Both Botox and facial fillers can deliver great anti-aging results, but they treat two different aging skin types.

Your provider assesses your skin and discusses your goals with you. If you’re bothered by lines from facial expressions, Botox could be right for you. If you’re affected by the loss of volume, facial fillers may be your best choice.

Both Botox and facial filler injections take just a few minutes in the office. There’s no downtime required with treatment, and side effects are minimal.

With Botox, you can expect your results to develop over a few days. If you get facial fillers, you’ll see results before you even leave the office.

Are lines and wrinkles hindering your confidence? Cosmetic injectables could be the solution you’re seeking. Call Dr. Aaronson & Associates or book a consultation online today.
