Botox and fillers are skin care treatments that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Each treatment has its own advantages and disadvantages for different types of skin. After a comprehensive facial evaluation, Dr. Warfield can recommend the right treatment to help you look and feel your best.
While Botox and fillers have the same purpose, they each target different types of wrinkles:
Botox is a neuromodulator that smoothes wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles underneath your skin. The treatment primarily addresses dynamic wrinkles, which form from repeated muscle movement. By relaxing the muscle, your skin can’t wrinkle or crease. That’s why Botox is ideal for treating existing wrinkles and preventing new ones.
Fillers inject gel-like substances into your skin to target volume loss, which causes static wrinkles. As you age, your body produces less of the collagen and elastin that once made it tight and firm. If your skin looks saggy, loose, or deeply creased, long-term volume loss may be the culprit.
Botox treats dynamic wrinkles, such as:
In addition, Botox can help treat excessive sweating and chronic migraines and headaches.
Meanwhile, fillers treat deep, static wrinkles, including:
Fillers can also rejuvenate the hands, reshape the nose, fill in chin dimples, plump thin lips, and provide a nonsurgical facelift.
Botox relaxes the skin on top of the treated muscle, so it takes time to see its full effects. Most clients notice visible results within 10-14 days of their first injection. Results typically begin to fade after about 3-6 months.
To maintain your results, return to Serendipity Lifestyle & Wellness Spa for maintenance treatments.
Fillers provide instant results that can last for 6-18 months in most cases. Like Botox, you can return to Dr. Warfield’s office for maintenance treatments.
