Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are two separate treatments administered via injection that share similar goals. Despite their similarities, the two injectables work differently to restore a more youthful appearance to your face. Here’s how they work:

Botox

Botox is the brand name of the most popular botulinum toxin treatment available. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that temporarily stops your muscles from moving freely. When injected in small amounts near the fine lines on your face, the relaxation affects only the muscles causing the wrinkles. Your wrinkles diminish for up to four months after your injections.

Fillers

Like Botox, fillers can also aid in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. However, they can make other changes, too. The team at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics uses Juvéderm® hyaluronic acid fillers to add volume in small amounts under your skin that act as subdermal fat. The results can last for up to a year. 

What specific changes can I make with Botox and fillers?

Botox is used to target dynamic wrinkles and lines, like crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. These wrinkles become deeper and more defined the more you move your facial muscles and make expressions. 

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, can:

  • Plump your lips
  • Volumize your cheeks
  • Fill a chin crease
  • Reduce larger wrinkles
  • Diminish deep scars

Both Botox and fillers work to lend you a more youthful appearance after your face loses volume and your skin loses tightness over the years. 

Your provider at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics can help you review your treatment options and develop an anti-aging treatment plan involving one or more procedures.

What other anti-aging treatments are available?

In addition to injectables like Botox and Juvéderm fillers, Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics provides several other treatments to fight wrinkles and make you look more lively and youthful. Available treatments include:

Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency treatments use radiofrequency energy to heat your tissues and promote collagen growth.

High-frequency and galvanic

High-frequency and galvanic treatments employ high-energy electrical currents within your skin to stimulate blood circulation and rebuilding with collagen and elastin fibers.

Ultrasonic

Ultrasonic treatments use the energy from sound waves to disrupt your tissues and promote collagen rebuilding. 

Microcurrent

Microcurrent treatments use low-energy electricity to stimulate muscle contractions in your face. This helps them build muscle to become stronger and helps to develop strengthening and firming collagen fibers.
