Torn Between Botox and Dermal Fillers? Let Us Help You Choose!

There’s no denying the popularity of Botox, with approximately 4 million Botox procedures done in 2012. Despite its popularity, we would like to point out among our Mentor skin care practice clients that Botox is not ideal for everyone. Why is this so? Let’s find out below!

Botox For Active Facial Lines

Generally, Botox is a neuromuscular agent which paralyzes its target muscles. As in the case of wrinkles, Botox stops the muscles from contracting which causes the formation of wrinkles in your skin. Here in our practice, we recommend Botox for “active” facial lines or wrinkles that were recently formed such as frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet.

Here at our practice, we offer Botox Cosmetic® and Xeomin®. They are both FDA approved muscle-relaxing agents that can significantly reduce expression lines, deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and forehead. Treatment is effective, safe, and takes approximately 10 minutes. The pain is a minimal “pin prick” and no anesthetic is required.

Dermal Fillers for Deeply Established Wrinkles

On the other hand, dermal fillers are ideal for deeply established wrinkles such as filling in shallow contours, softening creases, and plumping your lips. The wide range of dermal fillers we offer here in our Mentor skin care practice include Radiesse, Juvederm, Belotero, and ArteFill.
