Botox and Fillers Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is the first treatment to receive FDA approval for temporarily reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. It’s also the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the world.
With just a few injections you can achieve smoother skin and a more relaxed, yet perfectly natural, facial appearance. Botox is formulated from a neurotoxin and works by temporarily limiting the range of motion of targeted facial muscles.
You’ll still be able to make normal facial expressions, but your muscles won’t be able to tug and pull your skin into folds and wrinkles. Those results last around four months, at which time you can decide if you’d like to extend your results with another round of treatments. Dr. Brocchini uses Dysport for a more natural look.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that help replace lost facial volume. Most fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance your skin produces naturally. Some products are thicker than others, and different formulations are available for various areas of your face.
Fillers can increase volume and smooth the signs of aging in your:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
Dermal fillers can even be used to plump the backs of your hands, an area that often shows age even before the face. The best way to achieve a good outcome with dermal fillers is to work with a physician who is experienced in these treatments and understands which products to use in what volume.
What is a liquid facelift?
A liquid facelift is a treatment that combines Botox and dermal fillers to alter multiple areas of your face in the same appointment. This approach can smooth lines at your brow, plump your lips, and reduce the appearance of the lines that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth, all in the same session.
Dr. Brocchini has the skills and experience needed to leverage the power of Botox and dermal fillers to your advantage. A great liquid facelift is as much of an art as it is a science, and this is an area of medical aesthetics where she excels.
