Botox and fillers are two options available to minimize the signs of aging on the face. While both are injected under the surface of the skin, they work in very different ways to provide results that minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine line, and smooth the skin, giving a youthful appearance. The treatments can be used together to provide a well-rounded and smoother complexion, depending on the overall end result the patient is looking to achieve. While they treatments can be performed at the same time, more often the treatments are being done separately. Botox is used to relax the muscles in the face to prevent the muscles from contracting, which forms creases in the skin. Fillers are used to fill in the areas where wrinkles form, causing the skin to smooth out. With that in mind, Botox is now being used as the first treatment option which will provide initial results in the minimization of wrinkles and fine lines in key areas of the face. After a couple of weeks, the results are analyzed to see if the patient is satisfied with how the treatment is working. At that point, they may be happy with the results and not require additional treatment, or they may want to have the filler injected to further enhance the effects of the Botox and smooth out any remaining wrinkles and lines.
Botox and filler treatments are both temporary options to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face that work in different ways. They can used by themselves, or in conjunction with each other, depending on the desired results and the severity of the wrinkles, as well as how well your skin responds to the treatment. The specialists at La Vie Medspa can help you understand your options and how long you can expect each treatment to last based on your unique situation. Botox results typically last about 3 to 6 months depending on your skin and how frequently you receive Botox injections. Fillers can last longer, with results lasting for six months or longer depending on the type of filler you receive and how your body responds to it. When used together, fillers can help to prolong the results of Botox injections.
Individual results from Botox and filler treatments will vary as every individual’s skin concerns are different, as is their body’s response to the treatment. Botox treatments will typically last between three and six months, with treatments often lasting longer with continued, long-term repeated injections. Results can also be extended by using Botox in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments, such as fillers. The results from fillers will vary depending on the area of the face being treated, the severity of the wrinkles and lines being treated, and what type of filler is used. While results are still temporary, fillers can last anywhere from six months up to five years in some patients. Your practitioner at La Vie Medspa can help you to understand what your treatment options are and how long you can you can expect your results to last.
Botox and fillers are typically priced by unit, so the prices will vary based on how many units are needed to get the desired results. Pricing will also vary dependent on the practitioner performing the injection, the different individual brands or types of injection, and your geographical location. Before getting any treatment, the specialists at La Vie Medspa will want to sit with you to discuss your desired results, your treatment options and what you can expect as far as results and costs.
