What are some of the differences between botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are two of the most common cosmetic treatment options at MD Skin Lab for those looking to address fine lines and wrinkles. They both offer beautiful results and can be used in combination, but they are very different treatments.
What is botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator, which means it works by relaxing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles on your face. It's often used to treat frown lines, crow's feet lines around the eyes, horizontal forehead lines, gummy smiles, and chin dimpling. Botox is also used for medical reasons such as reducing migraines, excessive sweating, and jaw clenching.
There are 4 different brands of "botox" - Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Nuceiva. At MD Skin Lab, we offer all four neuromodulators. It takes up one to two weeks for full results to appear and results typically last three to four months.
What are dermal fillers?
Fillers are injectables that can be used to enhance volume, restore lost volume, smoothing out deep creases in your skin, or provide structures. There are different consistencies of fillers in order to achieve your specific aesthetic gold. Fillers can be used to plump lips, enhance contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars
They are generally made from hyaluronic acid (a natural substance that is present in the body). Hyaluronic acid works by attracting water molecules which provides volume and a plumping effect. Different formulations offer slightly different results. Results are seen immediately following treatment and can last up 6-12+ months.
