5 Reasons to Consider Botox

When Botox appeared “on the scene” about a decade ago, it was Hollywood exclusive. These days, the procedures are much more common. The formula and administration have since been nearly perfected.  One of the more common questions clients ask me are the specific differences between Botox® and various injectables.  While the treatment you ultimately choose can only be determined with consultation, there is a more general distinction between the two.

Botox® relaxes muscles. A medicinal treatment, Botox® works well to diminish the appearance of wrinkles that come to you genetically or from years of the same facial patterns.  Botox® can effectively smooth most signs of aging in the upper facial area.

Dermal fillers occupy the spaces where lines and wrinkles formThey are used for lips, face shaping and in areas of looser skin.  Our preferred options include Juvederm®, Radiesse® and Restylane®.

People reliably favor Botox® and dermal fillers for the top reasons:

1. It’s quick & results are immediate.  The treatment takes, at most, 30 minutes.  There is no downtime; you may resume normal activities immediately.  Results are generally observed in the 3-5 days after your appointment.

2. It’s non-invasive.  No cutting and no elaborate equipment is necessary. Anesthetics may be used to temporarily numb the injection site.

3. Side effects are minimal.  You many experience tenderness, swelling or short headaches.  These symptoms typically never extend past a 7-day period.

Two more popular, but less widely known reasons include:

4. Earlobe reconstruction.  If your earlobes hang a bit low from years heavy earring wear or light stretching, dermal fillers are a great option to restore them to their natural state.

5. Excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis is a condition marked by excessive perspiration.  Are you tired of carrying extra clothes and taking showers so frequently?  Botox® works to alleviate this condition by blocking sweat gland nerve signals.
