Fillers or Botox

Which is the Better Option: Fillers or Botox?

Fillers or Botox

There’s a big difference between Botox injections and facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. Though both can provide similar results for some common problems, there are situations in which one may be much better or produce longer-lasting results than the other. Here’s what you need to know about both options, so you can choose the one that works best for your unique skin.

Understanding Botox and How It Works

Botox injections contain small amounts of botulinum toxin, and while it is related to a form of food poisoning known as botulism at the molecular level, it is important to remember that Botox is safe. It is a purified and natural protein that can relax facial muscles just under the skin, thus smoothing the appearance of wrinkles. It is the first and most well-known product of its kind, so it has been studied extensively. Treatments take just a few minutes, and while there is no real downtime, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling for a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months, and most patients return for touch up treatments after about four months.

How FFS Surgery Helps Patients Who Just Want to Be Themselves

FFS Surgery Helps Patients

Facial feminization has been classified as a kind of “rebirth” for transgender patients. These procedures provide exactly what a transgender individual craves – for her appearance to match her gender. Facial feminization is life-changing for patients in many ways, but above all else, it simply helps them be who they are.

Comparing FFS to Cosmetic Procedures

One of the best ways to help others understand the difference FFS can make in the life of a transgender patient involves taking a look at cosmetic procedures – both invasive and noninvasive – that are common among cisgender women.

5 Facial Procedures with the Least Amount of Downtime

Least Amount of Downtime

If you’re thinking of getting a facelift or another significant surgery, but the prospect of a lengthy recovery has you second-guessing yourself, it may be wise to consider other options. Here, you will learn more about five different facial procedures with very little downtime (if any at all) that can rejuvenate your skin to make you look and feel decades younger.

#1 – Botox Injections

Botox is a simple, easy way to minimize and perhaps even erase the appearance of even the deepest wrinkles. During a session, your facial aesthetics team will inject the “problem areas” you describe with a small amount of botulinum toxin, which essentially relaxes the muscles just below your face. In turn, this relaxes the skin and helps smooth out wrinkles. Following each session, patients may experience a little discomfort, swelling, and redness, but this is temporary and typically goes away in a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months with most patients returning for treatments after four months.

Does Social Media Play a Role in Plastic Surgery Trends?

Social Media & Plastic Surgery

Each year, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reviews the surgical procedures that took place the year before. Per their latest report, 2017 was one of the busiest years for plastic surgeons to date. In fact, these experts believe that 2018 will be even busier, and they claim social media is driving demand for several popular procedures.

The Stand-Out Trends for 2017

The 2017 report showed that the average number of non-invasive procedures performed across the country has increased by some 25% since 2012, representing a huge increase in demand. What’s more, the millennial generation has embraced injectables – particularly dermal fillers and Botox – to the point that 80% of all the treatments performed in 2017 were cosmetic and non-surgical in nature. What is driving this dramatic increase in the number of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures? Per Patrick Byrne, the director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and an AAFPRS board member, it’s all about the selfie culture.
