What to Choose? Botox or Dermal Fillers?
- Posted on: Mar 20 2013
In the hands of a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Gary Butka , getting Botox in Brownwood is safe, easy and yields great results. With Botox leading the list of most number of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States in 2012, more and more people are taking an interest in this wrinkle-busting procedure. However, majority of the population actually believe that Botox is the only non-invasive way to treat wrinkles. This is not actually the case.
When to Use Botox
Botox, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), is actually useful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles that have only recently appeared and formed, also known as “active” facial lines. Apart from the Botox, other FDA-approved neuromuscular toxins include Dysport and Xeomin. Dr. Hoffman will inject Botox into the muscles that are associated with wrinkle formation.
When to Use Dermal Fillers
On the other hand, dermal fillers are actually used to significantly reduce the appearance of “firmly established wrinkles”. Specifically, they are used to soften facial creases, plump your lips and enhance shallow contours. Sometimes, dermal fillers are recommended in conjunction with Botox.
Choosing Between Botox and Dermal Fillers
In choosing between Botox and dermal fillers, it is best to have a thorough consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Hoffman to come up with the results you’re aiming for.
