Botox and Fillers Q & A
What are Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are two separate treatments that alleviate signs of aging by way of injection. Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa offers several options for each and helps you go over their differences, so you can take part in a cosmetic treatment plan that suits you. They offer:
Botox and other neurotoxins
Botox and similar injectables in its class, like Jeauveau® and Dysport®, contain a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which temporarily stops facial muscles from contracting. The effects last for three to four months for most people.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Revanesse® Versa™ improve your facial proportions by adding volume with injectable gel-like products. The results vary in duration depending on the type of filler you get, but you can expect them to stick around for at least six months in most cases.
What does Botox treat?
Botox and similar neurotoxins are best known for their ability to treat fine facial lines, but they have some other capabilities, too. Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa offers Botox for:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Neck bands
- Chin dimples
- Bunny lines
- Lip lines
- Brow lift
- Lip flip
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating)
If you’re happy with the results of your first neurotoxin treatment, you can schedule future treatments regularly to maintain the results beyond those first few months.
What can fillers do?
Fillers have a remarkable number of abilities. Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa injects them strategically in these areas:
- Under eyes
- Lower face
- Nasolabial folds
Your provider builds up to natural-looking results by adding small amounts of filler in each syringe to restore volume. Just like with Botox, you can schedule regular filler injections at Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa if you want to enjoy long-term enhancements.
How should I prepare for Botox and fillers?
In preparation for cosmetic injectables like Botox and fillers, you should come to Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa to discuss the treatments with an expert. You can express your goals and concerns and get detailed answers to all of your questions.
You may get a few preparation instructions to follow prior to your treatment appointment. Stopping the use of blood-thinning medications and supplements can reduce your chances of bruising after the injections, so you should be sure to tell the team of any medications or supplements you take regularly just in case they apply.
Botox and fillers can reform or restore facial contours and reduce wrinkles. To find out more about the treatments and see if you’re a candidate for cosmetic injectables, call Lounge of Beauty Medical Spa, or schedule an appointment online today.
