Botox:

Botox injections can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They’re also considered as a cure for conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating, an overactive bladder, a lazy eye, and last but not least they may also help prevent chronic migraines.

Filler:

According to Wikipedia an Injectable filler (injectable cosmetic filler, injectable facial filler) is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features: restoring a smoother appearance.

How does Botox work?

Botox injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mainly the nerves that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of Botox injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.

How do fillers work?

Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months or longer.

What is the difference between Botox and Filler?

As Jennifer Berry wrote on MedicalNewsToday these are the main differences between the Botox and filler:

  • Botox: This freezes muscles to stop creases and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. These are typically found in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes.
  • Dermal fillers: These use hyaluronic acid and similar substances to “fill in” or plump areas that have lost volume and smoothness. This includes wrinkles around the mouth, thin lips, and cheeks that have lost fullness. They may also be used on forehead wrinkles, scars, and other areas that need extra volume for a smoother look.
  • Botox results last 3 to 4 months. Dermal filler results vary, depending on which filler is used.

What to share with your Dr. during your consultation:

  • Share with your doctor if you’ve had any type of Botox injection within the past four to six months.
  • You should tell him if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids, or allergy medications.
  • The most important thing is that if you take blood thinners, you should stop taking them several days before your Botox treatment to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising.

BOTOX and dermal fillers FAQs

Are cosmetic injectables safe?

Both BOTOX and dermal fillers have been used safely and effectively for many years. There is little risk involved when they are administered to the right candidates. Please inform our team of any allergies or medical conditions you may have prior to treatment. We take great care in ensuring that patients feel comfortable and safe throughout their experience.

How do fine lines and creases appear?

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin. These are two important proteins that help keep our skin looking plump and youthful. Without them, deep lines and creases begin to form. BOTOX and dermal fillers can help restore some of the volume that has been lost over time. Ask our Las Vegas, NV team how cosmetic injectables can achieve your aesthetic goals.

Do results from BOTOX and fillers look natural?

BOTOX and dermal fillers should create natural results when performed properly.

Our number one goal is to help you look and feel like the best version of yourself.
