If you would like to fade your lines and renew the appearance of your skin, you should think about receiving dermal fillers and Botox. At AURAE MD in La Jolla, California, Dr. Margo Aura Emami can use these injectable treatments to fix your crow’s feet, improve wrinkles around your mouth, and correct many other facial imperfections. These anti-aging injectables can smooth your skin and improve your fine lines for many months.
What’s the Difference Between Botox and Fillers?
When you start thinking about using injectable treatments to renew your skin and improve your wrinkles, you might be confused about the difference between Botox and fillers. Although these beneficial injectables can both be used to minimize lines on your face, these products contain different ingredients. As a result, these products will use distinct methods to change the appearance of your skin.
Relaxing Your Muscles
Botox is a neuromodulator that will use purified proteins to temporarily improve lines and wrinkles on your neck and face. After Dr. Emami injects this beneficial product into your desired location, these proteins will cause some of your muscles to relax. As your muscles respond to this neuromodulator, your fine lines and other aesthetic imperfections will become less noticeable.
This injectable can be used to fix frown lines, wrinkles that have become etched around your eyes, and lines that appear on your forehead. This product can also minimize wrinkles on your neck and decrease excessive sweating that affects your feet or hands. Dr. Emami will use her knowledge and experience to give you a youthful and relaxed look without making your facial features appear frozen.
Adding Volume to Your Face
In addition to using neuromodulators to fix your wrinkles, you can use a variety of dermal fillers to rejuvenate your skin. Many of these products contain a very useful substance called hyaluronic acid. This gentle acid is naturally found in the extracellular matrix of your skin. After you receive your injections, the hyaluronic acid in your filler will restore the facial volume that you have lost over time. This process will minimize your acne scars and fine lines.
Dr. Emami can use dermal fillers from the Restylane and Juvederm collections to correct the aesthetic issues that are bothering you. For example, she may use a product like Restylane Silk to give you plump, beautiful lips. In addition, she can use Juvederm Voluma to make your cheeks look fuller and more youthful.
How Long Will My Injections Last?
Each of these injectable products will improve your skin for a different amount of time. The condition of your skin and the type of aesthetic issues that you are addressing can also change the length of your results. In general, neuromodulators will correct your forehead wrinkles and other lines for about three to four months, and dermal fillers will probably improve your appearance for six to 24 months.
When Dr. Emami makes a personalized aesthetic program for you, she will let you know more about the likely impact of your injections. If you would like to enjoy your rejuvenated appearance for many years, you should visit AURAE MD for follow-up treatments. For example, you might decide to fix your crow’s feet by receiving an injectable treatment every couple of months.
When Will My Wrinkles and Lines Begin to Fade?
Dermal fillers work very quickly, and your wrinkles and other aesthetic issues will improve once your initial set of injections is complete. Your skin will probably take about two weeks to adjust to your chosen filler. If you use neuromodulators to fix your wrinkles, your appearance should begin to improve after about two to three days. You are likely to see the final changes in your lines within 14 days.
Who Can Use These Injectable Products?
If you are an adult who wants to correct your facial lines and volume loss, you will probably be able to use dermal fillers and other injections to improve your look. Before she uses injectables to correct your facial wrinkles, Dr. Emami will examine your skin and ask questions about your medical history. During this discussion, you should tell her about any injectables that you’ve used in the past and any allergies, sensitivities, or skin issues that you have.
If you had a bad reaction to Xeomin, Dysport, or another neuromodulator, you should not use this type of injectable to improve your skin. Similarly, you will not be able to receive dermal fillers if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients in these aesthetic products. In addition, you cannot use any injectable products while you have a rash, infection, or other skin problem that affects your desired treatment area.
Renew Your Look
Using Botox and dermal fillers to improve your forehead lines, thinning lips, and other imperfections will give you a more youthful and energic appearance. These products will improve your aesthetic issues for many months, and you won’t be required to take time off from your household duties or job after you finish your treatment.
