05 Apr Why Botox and Fillers are the Perfect Pair
There’s a reason Botox and dermal fillers remain two of the most requested treatments at RefinedMD—they work, and they work fast! Both are considered injectables, and these treatments are so quick that even combined they can easily be squeezed into a lunchtime appointment. However, Botox and fillers can actually do a lot more than you might think. Let’s take a closer look at these in-demand treatments.
There are other neuromodulators on the market, such as Dysport and Xeomin, but Botox remains the most popular. It’s proven to be safe and effective, it’s a household name, and whether you’re a newcomer to this treatment or a seasoned pro, you’re probably familiar with it. When used to stop lines and wrinkles, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause these unwanted lines for 4 – 6 months on average.
The Botox Boom
Increasingly, younger clients have been requesting Botox as a preventative treatment and we think that’s a great idea! The muscles that create lines and wrinkles are just like muscles anywhere else in the body. The more they get used, the stronger they become. However, stopping these muscles from working out at all via Botox leads to them not being capable of creating creases, lines, and wrinkles.
Preventing wrinkles is better than treating them, just like preventing any unwanted occurrence is better than trying to fix it. Botox as a preventative measure against lines and wrinkles, meaning that any adult of any age might be a good match for this top-requested treatment.
You can also use Botox for a variety of off-label purposes. For example, it’s been shown to also stop excessive sweating and can also prevent migraines. You can even use Botox to achieve a subtle “lift” of the brows. This can offer a beautiful arch and even reduce the early signs of sagging in this area. What can’t Botox do? Well, it can’t create volume—but dermal fillers can.
The World of Dermal Fillers
There are so many dermal fillers available that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. That’s why we offer complimentary consultations on all cosmetic treatments. Most dermal fillers are made with HA, or hyaluronic acid. This acid already occurs in the body, so there’s very little chance of your body rejecting it as a “foreign” filler. People love HA fillers because results are immediate and striking. Some swelling should be expected right after a dermal filler appointment, so do plan any event or photos appropriately.
We carry all of the best and safest dermal fillers from leading companies you know and love like Juvederm and Restylane. So what’s the difference between all these fillers if they’re made with the same ingredients? It’s all in the details.
Different dermal fillers, even within the same manufacturer, are designed to do different things. Some are meant just for lips, while others might be better used to contour the jawline or create volume in the cheeks. Very minor differences in the manufacturing of each dermal filler allows them to last different timeframes, spread a bit (or not), and ultimately allows for individualization with each filler appointment.
What Can Fillers Do for You?
One of the most popular treatment sites for dermal fillers is the lips. HA dermal fillers can give you a natural-looking fuller pout that you’ll love. Fillers are meant to restore volume that you’ve lost over the years or give you the volume you’ve always wanted. They can lift the cheeks for a more youthful appearance, fill in hollows under the eyes, define your jawline, and even cover up those veins that have become apparent on the tops of the hands.
Getting matched with the right dermal filler (or fillers) for you is just half of the process. It’s equally important to ensure you only trust a skilled injector. The skill of this professional makes all the difference in your results and even how long the results last.
