Botox is a prescription injectable that’s made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin. This FDA-approved treatment is effective for treating moderate to severe wrinkles that form on the brow line and the creases, known as crow’s feet, that develop around the eyes.
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles involved in the formation of wrinkles and creases. As your muscles relax, the skin in the treatment area smooths out.
Your MyFitMed provider creates a custom Botox treatment plan that’s based on the severity of your wrinkles and creases. Through a series of injections in specific areas of your face, the provider can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, giving you natural-looking results that last for months.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment option that treats wrinkles, lines, and areas of the face where volume has been lost due to age-related changes. While dermal fillers and Botox are both injectable therapies designed to treat common age-related skin flaws, the treatments work differently.
The dermal fillers available at MyFitMed are made up of substances naturally found in your body, such as hyaluronic acid. By injecting these substances into wrinkled or lined areas of your face, your provider adds needed volume to smooth out wrinkles and make skin appear fresh and youthful.
Dermal fillers are also an effective treatment option for enhancing the natural contours of your face, especially in your lips and the areas around your cheeks. By injecting small amounts of a dermal filler into these spaces, your MyFitMed provider can replace volume lost when your body slows down its production of collagen and elastin, the basic building blocks of healthy skin.
While Botox and dermal fillers can work for adults of all ages, your MyFitMed provider takes the time to review your medical history and your existing health to ensure treatment will be safe and effective. They also discuss your expectations for results to determine if this type of therapy is right for you.
In general, you should be in good overall health and not have any active skin infections or underlying health issues that can be complicated by injection therapy.
Treatment with Botox and dermal fillers may be a great option if you want to address age-related skin flaws but aren’t ready for surgery.
