Choosing Between Botox and Dermal Fillers

Over the past decade, the aesthetic enhancement industry has undergone a renaissance of sorts, with an incredible increase in popularity, year over year! in today’s aesthetic enhancement landscape, more and more men and women are having cosmetic medicine treatments done than ever before, and there are a number of reasons for this. One of the first is definitely the amazing advances and innovations that have been made in aesthetics, allowing patients to achieve the aesthetic results they want using the least invasive procedures such as Botox and fillers. In the past, similar results would generally require the use of surgery, and far more invasive measures. According to Dr. Hamadiya, the top Botox and filler specialist Miami has to offer, these treatments have been the biggest catalysts for such an incredible rise in popularity. The fact is that when it comes to Botox and fillers, we are able to combat some of the most common issues associated with aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and overall deflated looking skin that’s lacking the much-needed volume that’s sapped with age. The problem is that as w age. Such issues are amplified by everything else, including hormonal changes, sun exposure, stress and much more. And while Botox and fillers are certainly the most popular and currently reigning supreme amongst any other aesthetic enhancement treatments, there are still far too many patients who know little to nothing about when they should use which treatment, and what the specifics of either truly are. In this article, we will be going over a few of the most important factors when considering the use of Botox and dermal fillers.

· The Facts About Botox

When we are discussing the use of Botox and dermal fillers, we must first identify each one on their own. Botox is the undisputed king of all aesthetic enhancement treatments, and the fact of the matter is that more people use Botox than any other aesthetic enhancement treatment around – in fact it accounts for over 50% of all treatments today. Botox is a neurotoxin wrinkle reliever designed to mainly treat dynamic wrinkles – created when our facial muscles move to make certain expressions, like laughing, smiling, or squinting. Unfortunately, as we get older, they become easier to see. These facial injections of botulinum toxin can block the signals that cause specific muscles to contract, which can eventually lead to wrinkles. According to Dr. Hamadiya, the top Botox and filler specialist Miami has to offer, the most common areas for the use of Botox are the forehead, eyebrow region, crow’s feet around the eyes, and around the mouth area.

· The Facts About Dermal Fillers

One of the biggest issues commonly associated with aging, as we mentioned, has to be the presence of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. As we discussed previously, wrinkles can be caused by facial expressions, however another way in which they can come about is due to a condition known as facial volume loss. as we age vital skin compounds produced by the body become depleted over time, including hyaluronic acid and collagen – both of these provide our skin with its natural plumpness and volume, leading to a more youthful smooth appearance. Dermal fillers made up of hyaluronic acid work by holding in water at the injection site and temporarily adding volume or fullness to the skin. These synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers can even boost natural levels of collagen, giving patients more healthy-looking, supple skin. the most common issues treated by these fillers are lip lines, laugh lines, loss of facial volume, chin and jawline augmentation, amongst other issues.

· How Do You Choose Which Injectable Treatment is Right for You?

The process of injectables like Botox and fillers is relatively similar, and they are both relatively simple and minimally invasive to have done. However, there are a number of differences in both their application, what they treat and the types of results they can produce. There are many considerations to take into account when we are discussing which injectable is right for you. When it comes to Botox and filler cost is a major thing to take into account, as you must make the right decision for your wallets. For Botox and filler cost can often be somewhat similar, per session, but its important to understand with one, you might need more sessions than the other – this is where it might be best to have a skincare analysis done and have an expert guide you on which to take. In addition, this analysis will tell you what kinds of issues you need to alleviate, and this will allow you to decide which have the best effect on you and your wrinkles. For instance, if you are suffering from static wrinkles rather than dynamic wrinkles than when it comes to Botox and filler cost isn’t as big of a question, as you will get more results from using a dermal filler to fight off the facial volume loss.

The fact is that no matter which treatment you decide upon, its always good to take the advice of an aesthetic expert, and make sure that the person who is injecting you is fully certified and experienced. No matter what you choose, if the person doesn’t know what they are doing its unlikely your results will be that great. For more information on injectables, be sure to contact Dr. Hamadiya today.
