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.

Should You Do A Facelift or Botox? Tips on How to Pick Which

Facelift or Botox

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure which allows the face to become firmer and more youthful in appearance. It aids in diminishing wrinkles and improving problem areas like sagging skin on the neck. The important thing to remember is that this is a surgical procedure, and as such it can require up to two weeks recovery time for some patients before they are ready to resume their daily activities.

The results of a facelift are permanent, although the effects of aging will begin to show again after an extended period. By taking loving care of your body and face after the surgery, you can extend the life of your facelift results for over a decade.

Want Quick Results? Try Botox or Fillers

Facial Fillers Botox

Plastic surgery is a fantastic option for anyone who wants to reshape or recontour their face, or even for those who want to look and feel younger. However, many procedures have some downtime, and they require at least a few days off work. If you’re looking for fast, quick, and safe results, Botox and fillers alike are very viable alternatives.

Botox – What to Expect

For people who are considering the idea of a more youthful appearance but who aren’t quite ready to commit to surgery – or for those who have lines and wrinkles in just one or two areas – Botox is a great alternative. It’s incredibly quick and simple, and the entire procedure can be performed in as little as 15 minutes in your surgeon’s office. There’s absolutely no recovery necessary, and in many cases, you can go right back to your normal activity as soon as you leave. You may experience a little redness and swelling, but these are easily mitigated and well worth the overall improvement you’ll see.

Vanderpump Rules Cast Loves Botox!

Vanderpump Rules

People magazine recently sat down with the cast of Vanderpump Rules, a reality TV series that airs on Bravo, to discuss their love of Botox and even plastic surgery. The cast seems to be huge fans, and they aren’t afraid to discuss it, either. Stassi Schroeder, Jax Taylor, and Scheana Marie were all open and honest.

Jax and His Plastic Surgeries

Jax Taylor, heartthrob and fashion extraordinaire, is certainly not ashamed to talk about the work he’s had done. In the interview, he said, “I embrace it.” He has had three nose jobs and claims to be a huge fan who will talk about it with anyone who cares to listen. By looking at Jax, you’d never really know he’d been under the knife that many times. This is a complement to his surgeon, though, who has managed to make Jax happy with gorgeous, masculine, yet completely natural features. He joked with Stassi about chin implants and matching breast reductions, too.

Micro-Needling as a Compliment to Botox

Micro-Needling vs Botox

An increase in the amount or severity of facial wrinkles can lead to uncomfortable feelings. Many patients improve this problem with Botox injections, but sometimes they just can’t seem to get maximum results. Luckily, micro-needling has emerged as a safe and effective compliment to injections. Micro-needling is a procedure where a physician uses tiny needle pricks to gently injure wrinkled skin. The injured skin releases collagen and elastin as it begins the healing process. Collagen and elastin soften and thicken the skin. They are key in eliminating fine wrinkles and improving the skin’s appearance and texture.

What Is the New Super Botox Facelift?

Mesotherapy

Botox has been used for cosmetic enhancement for many years now, but a “new” treatment option may just take its place. Mesotherapy is not a new concept, but thanks to Hollywood A-listers who are discovering its full potential, it is sweeping the country and is undeniably the next big thing.

What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy was originally developed to promote fat loss and burn away cellulite with vitamins, minerals, and pharmaceutical ingredients. Traditionally, they are injected into subcutaneous fat and target adipose fat cells, causing them to rupture and die. Although the results are quite limited in nature, and it works better on some areas of the body than others, doctors are finding new ways to make the most of these miniscule injections.
