or dermal fillers.
How Botox and Dermal Fillers Work
Botox® and dermal fillers work to temporarily reduce or eliminate the various signs of aging in the face. The two are often used in partnership to create an instantly younger-looking face.
Botox® treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. Injections can be strategically placed over the face to prevent the creasing of skin and make existing wrinkles less pronounced. Erasing crow’s feet, frown lines, and a range of forehead lines around the eyebrows will help to brighten your appearance and immediately add a youthful impression.
Botox® injections work by targeting the muscles beneath our skin that contract and release with each facial expression. As we age, our skin’s ability to “bounce back” after making a facial expression lessens, allowing lines and wrinkles to be more noticeable. Because of this, Botox® is often used in partnership with fillers.
The process of aging slowly impacts our bodies' creation of collagen which provides fullness to our face. While Botox® is great to address lines and wrinkles, to achieve a younger look, many clients need to add volume in specific areas of the face. Thankfully, the specialist in our Norfolk and Virginia Beach locations can help!
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option that offers immediate results and no downtime. The injectable fillers are customized to your needs and goals to specifically target any areas of concern.
Anti-aging dermal filler treatments, such as Juvederm, directly add volume according to your customized treatment plan. This additional volume and fullness instantly add a glowy, more youthful appearance to your face, no matter your age.
This is a great treatment option if decreasing collagen has left areas of your face depleted and added areas of sagging skin. Fillers can plump your cheeks and fill in the creases caused by constant facial movements. They can also help improve the overall balance of your facial features which can also create a younger-looking appearance.
Where you can start
You can achieve a younger look by focusing treatment in one area of the face or several. One of the most common areas for fillers and Botox® are the lines that appear around our eyebrows, including those directly in the middle of the brows. The skin around the eyes is also an area that can provide dramatic results as this skin often changes sooner than the rest of the face.
Both Botox® and fillers can be used to adjust the volume and lines that appear in the midface or cheeks, helping to combat the sometimes hollow appearing aging feature. Clients have seen success with the combination treatment in the chin area to create a smoother, younger look. Finally, lip enhancement is a popular treatment with Botox® and filler injections, for both volume and lines that can appear around the full mouth.
Start the new year younger
The combination of Botox® and dermal filler injections is a great treatment option to start your new year off looking and feeling younger. The non-invasive treatments don’t require downtime and can be completed before your holiday celebrations.
Botox® reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the dermal fillers add back volume that age has taken from your face.
