Botox and Fillers Q&A
What are Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections that rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles or enhancing your natural features. These cosmetic injections are the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States.
Mrs. Beavers is an experienced healthcare provider and aesthetic expert that provides Botox and fillers at Star Treatment Healthcare Services and Med Spa.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that move the facial muscles that create lines and wrinkles. This includes:
- Crow’s feet at the outer corner of your eyes
- Frown lines in between your eyebrows
- Worry lines on your forehead
Mrs. Beavers carefully and expertly injects small amounts of Botox in specific areas of your face to temporarily halt muscle movement and give your skin time to relax and smooth itself out.
Though Botox is best known for smoothing out lines and wrinkles, it can also treat many other health concerns, such as excessive sweating and chronic migraines.
How do fillers work?
Fillers are gel-like injections that restore volume under your skin. As you get older, your skin thins because of a slowdown in the production of collagen (the supportive protein in the dermal layer of your skin). The layer of fat under your skin also diminishes with age.
These structural changes result in saggy, loose skin that causes the lines and creases around your mouth (nasolabial folds) and chin (marionette lines).
Fillers act as a replacement for your lost fat, plumping up your skin by filling in lines and creases. Fillers can also add volume to thin lips, smooth out depressed acne scars, and improve facial symmetry.
What can I expect after getting Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are a quick cosmetic treatment Mrs. Beavers performs at the office. You should see improvements in your overall appearance immediately following filler injections, but it can take up to a week to see the effects of Botox injections.
Botox keeps wrinkles away for about three to four months, while fillers may last six or more months. Mrs. Beavers recommends you schedule your next Botox and filler appointment as soon as you notice a return of your lines and wrinkles.
Regular Botox and filler injections may help you maintain your youthful appearance and prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
