What is Botox®?
Botox is an injectable medication used in both medical and aesthetic applications. Created from a natural substance called Clostridium botulinum, Botox alters the ability of treated muscles to achieve their full range of motion.
When injected into facial tissues, Botox temporarily prevents treated muscles from tugging and pulling your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles. Botox is FDA-approved for use in crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines, but practitioners also use it off-label in other areas.
Botox injections take just a few moments to administer, and results develop within a few days. You can expect those results to last around four months; after that time, your lines and wrinkles slowly return. Dysport® is a similar medication approved only for treating frown lines, and Jeuveau® is yet another option available at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that replace lost facial volume or enhance volume in chosen areas of the face. There are several different fillers to choose from, each formulated for use in specific areas of the face.
Thicker fillers create softer contouring in the mid-face or cheek areas and smooth depressions beneath your eyes and the folds that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Thinner fillers are perfect for smoothing away fine lines around the eyes and lips.
The Juvederm® family of products offers a wide range of different dermal fillers, including fillers designed to plump your lips or add volume to the backs of your hands.
How can Botox and fillers work to enhance my appearance?
Combining neuromodulator treatments like Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau with dermal fillers like Juvederm is often referred to as a “liquid facelift.” In the hands of skilled practitioners like the team members at Ardmore Aesthetic Solutions, these treatments can create impressive results.
Many people choose a liquid facelift to achieve a more youthful, relaxed, and well-rested appearance without the risks and recovery time that comes with plastic surgery. The temporary nature of these treatments means you can also make minor adjustments if there are aspects of your results you’d like to tweak.
