Botox and fillers are capable of leading to amazing results with your appearance. Many know of the injectables for their wrinkle reducing results, however, they can also help reshape your features. When the cosmetic injection has been performed by an expert injector at New Image Plastic Surgery, you will be able to achieve the facial contour you want, correct, or even shape the look of your face. The following are the results to look out for with Botox and fillers.

Liquid Facelift

Dermal fillers can be used as a noninvasive method that the patient uses to soften or get rid of the unwanted wrinkles, age lines, and facial folds. Other injectables used like Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm can help in contouring facial shape to the preference of the patient. Hyaluronic acid is the key ingredient in these fillers, which is found in your body naturally. It helps to add hydration and volume into the skin. As people grow older, the skin becomes less elastic and begins to thin. With the aid of such fillers, sagging skin gets plumped up and it makes the face and other body parts to look youthful and fuller.

Botox Softens the Jawline

Patients may wish to have a narrow jaw if they have a wide jaw. Botox can get injected into the masseter muscle and under the cheekbones. It can weaken the muscle in a few minutes. The size of the jaw starts to decrease, and it will reach the size you want after some time. As time passes, the muscle will go through muscle hypertrophy since it will lose strength and volume, decreasing in size.

Sculptra Filler

The Sculptra filler is the dermal filler which can be placed under the skin and it can add volume and fill into the deep folds of your face. It is unique as it will fill up the folds like the nasolabial folds after stimulating collagen production in the body. Since your own collagen is smoothing the lines and wrinkles, results will be long-lasting, which leads to the best skin volume you can achieve.

With years of facial expression, exposure to the sun, and the effects of gravity, your skin can begin to weaken and show lines and wrinkles. But you don’t have to live with your signs of aging. A nonsurgical treatment like Botox or dermal fillers can smooth out your facial lines and wrinkles to restore your youthful appearance! The two treatments have similar purposes, but they actually treat different types of wrinkles. Keep reading to find out which one you might choose.

What can Botox do?

Botox is a highly popular cosmetic treatment that can smooth out some of the most common facial lines such as crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes, frown lines between the brows, and forehead lines. Botox is generally used for the upper face and is effective on lines that are caused by facial expression. Are your wrinkles worse when you smile or laugh? Botox can target your facial muscles to reduce contractions, preventing your wrinkles from showing. Botox typically lasts four to six months before a touch up session is needed.

What can fillers do?

There are many filler formulas on the market that allow you to customize your treatment based on your concerns. Fillers literally fill in your lines, wrinkles, and folds with a clear gel formula. Common treatment areas are lines around the mouth and nose. Most formulas contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that provides your skin hydration. The filler can also add subtle volume to your lips, cheeks, or under the eyes. If you have deep lines or wrinkles that are present even when your face is relaxed, you could benefit from facial fillers to smooth your skin. Depending on the formula you choose, fillers can last for six to twelve months before a maintenance session is needed.

Both Botox and fillers can effectively smooth out your wrinkles for a rejuvenated appearance. If you’re experiencing both types of wrinkles, they can even be combined for optimal results!
