Botox and facial fillers consistently rank among the top non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. They enable individuals to address a variety of skin care problems, including:
- Wrinkles: Botox smooths facial wrinkles, reduces muscle contractions in the face and helps the skin appear more youthful. Comparatively, dermal fillers smooth wrinkles that occur due to lost collagen in the skin and reduce nasolabial folds (wrinkles that extend from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
- Loss of Facial Volume: Facial fillers are injected beneath the skin to restore lost facial volume, along with improve facial contours.
- Lines Around the Nose and Mouth: Dermal fillers have been shown to correct lines around the nose and mouth, including marionette and smile lines.
- Crow's Feet: Botox can be used to treat crow's feet, i.e. wrinkles that form at the outer corner of a person's eye.
For people who want to address skin care problems, it helps to evaluate Botox and dermal fillers closely. That way, an individual can learn about the similarities and differences between both Botox and dermal fillers and make an informed skin care treatment decision.
What Is Botox?
Botox is one of the most common non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedures. It treats fine lines, wrinkles and furrows and can be performed in just minutes. Plus, Botox injections are virtually pain-free, and there is minimal downtime associated with a Botox procedure.
During a Botox procedure, a small amount of Botox is injected into different areas of a patient's face. The treatment reduces dynamic wrinkles and reverses and prevents “etched-in” wrinkles.
A Botox procedure typically delivers results within a few days of treatment. Meanwhile, Botox treatment results usually last up to four months.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Like Botox, dermal fillers are injected into a patient's skin and help minimize visible signs of aging. Various dermal fillers are available, and they help patients address a wide range of skin care issues.
Dermal fillers won't stop the natural aging process, but they help patients quickly and safely treat skin care problems before they get out of hand. To determine the right dermal filler treatment, it helps to meet with an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. In doing so, a surgeon and patient can work together to determine which dermal filler can deliver the best-possible results.
Which Skin Care Treatment Is Better: Botox or Facial Fillers?
Deciding between Botox and facial fillers to address skin care issues may seem difficult, but in the hands of an expert, the best treatments will be recommended. There is no one-size-fits-all skin care treatment for all individuals, yet Botox and dermal fillers both can provide facial rejuvenation benefits.
When it comes to skin care treatments, education is key. By meeting with Dr. Jonathan Cabin of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, an individual can receive comprehensive insights into all aspects of Botox and dermal filler treatments.
How Does Dr. Cabin Approach Botox and Dermal Filler Treatments?
Dr. Cabin has a simple philosophy: communicate with patients and provide them with the safest, most effective treatments. He has extensive expertise in Botox, dermal filler and other non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation treatments and shares his knowledge with patients. Also, Dr. Cabin takes the guesswork out of facial rejuvenation treatments and ensures each of his patients knows exactly what to expect during any procedure.
For people who are considering Botox or dermal filler treatments, Dr. Cabin requests a consultation. At this time, Dr. Cabin meets with a patient and learns about his or her facial rejuvenation treatment goals. Dr. Cabin evaluates a patient to find out if he or she qualifies for Botox, dermal fillers and other facial rejuvenation treatments, too.
Dr. Cabin customizes each Botox or facial filler treatment plan to his patient. He understands no two patients are exactly alike and develops a personalized treatment plan to accommodate each of his patient's requests.
Additionally, Dr. Cabin prioritizes patient trust. He recommends Botox, facial fillers or other facial rejuvenation treatments only if he believes a patient will benefit from them. If a facial rejuvenation treatment is too risky, Dr. Cabin will explore alternatives. And if Dr. Cabin believes a patient should forgo a facial rejuvenation treatment, he will be honest with this individual.
If Dr. Cabin recommends Botox or facial fillers, he guides his patient through the treatment process. Dr. Cabin explains what a patient should expect during each stage of a facial rejuvenation treatment and helps this individual plan accordingly. He also works diligently throughout a facial rejuvenation treatment so a patient can optimize his or her results. And as a patient recovers from a facial rejuvenation procedure, Dr. Cabin monitors his or her progress as well.
