Rockville, MD patients get facial rejuvenation with injectable fillers and Botox
Aging is a natural part of life. With the number of people searching for non-surgical anti-aging treatments, Botox and injectable fillers are popular cosmetic procedures. With locations in Frederick and Rockville, MD, Dr. Prussick, of Washington Dermatology Center, offers treatments to help patients regain a more youthful appearance.
Botox and injectable fillers are commonly confused. While they have the same goal in rejuvenating the face and reducing the signs of aging,they have different functions. Botox softens lines while dermal fillers add volume.
Botox softens fine lines
Although it is injected under the skin, Botox is not a dermal filler. It does not plump or add fullness. Botox is a neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles to soften fine lines. Results begin to appear three to five days after treatment. Results typically last three to six months. Botox may be used to treat the following:
- The 11’s between your eyebrows
- Crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes
- Forehead lines
- Lines around the mouth
- Lines on the neck
Injectable fillers add volume
Injectable dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Belotero add volume to areas of the face. Results are immediate and may last up to a year. Fillers can be used to:
- Plump the lips for lip augmentation
- Add volume to the cheekbones or hollowed areas of the face
- Fill in lines such as the nasolabial folds around the mouth
Facial rejuvenation with Botox and injectable fillers
When Botox and dermal fillers are used together, patients look younger and refreshed. Lines are softened and the volume of youth is restored.
