Botox and Dermal Fillers

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator, which is a wrinkle-relaxing cosmetic injection that temporarily minimizes the appearance of your crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Botox works by halting the movement of the muscle under your skin. 

Your repeated facial expressions cause your skin to fold, resulting in the creases and lines. By halting muscle activity, Botox stops the folding, which allows your skin to smooth out those lines and wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead. 

Botox injections are relatively painless and only take a few minutes to administer. You may experience some redness at the site of your injection following your aesthetic session, but you can cover the side effects with makeup. Other than refraining from strenuous activity for at least two hours following your injections, there’s no need for downtime after Botox.

With Botox injections at Ageless San Diego, you should start to see a reduction in the lines and wrinkles within 24-48 hours following treatment, and the results should last up to four months. 

What are dermal fillers?

As you get older, the subcutaneous fat that keeps your skin plump and taut begins to diminish, which leads to sagging and wrinkles. Dermal fillers act as a replacement for this lost volume and are used to:

  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Enhance facial contours
  • Plump up lips 
  • Fill in recessed acne scars

The team at Ageless San Diego offers the Juvéderm® line of fillers, as well as Radiesse®, to enhance your features and erase years from your look. 

Dermal filler injections may take a little longer than Botox. The team provides your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect. You may experience some redness and swelling following your injections, but you can ease these side effects with an ice pack. 

You should notice an improvement in your look immediately following your injections, and dermal fillers can keep you looking fresh and young for a few months or more than a year, depending on the type of filler used. 

How do I know what cosmetic injection is best for me?

The aesthetic team at Ageless San Diego specializes in nonsurgical cosmetic treatments and can help you determine which cosmetic injection makes the best choice for you based on your beauty goals. In some cases, the team may suggest both Botox and dermal fillers, which is a treatment referred to as a liquid face-lift.
