One of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments performed today for both men and women is Botox. Botox is administered via injection in just a matter of minutes, is virtually painless, and requires no downtime afterwards for recovery. Botox creates results which can last 3-4 months on average. There are many factors which can determine where we notice signs of aging, how early we notice signs of aging, and the severity of those signs of aging…there are environmental factors, lifestyle factors, and genetic factors that can all play a role in our aging process. Determining what is causing the signs of aging we want to address is important as each treatment or procedure is designed to combat something very specific. For example, Dermal Fillers, which are also an injectable facial rejuvenation treatment, are performed to fill in areas of volume loss, while Botox is performed to temporarily cease repetitive muscles movements that are causing lines and creases to form. So, while the lines and creases may be the same, their point of origin matters.
Botox may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as Dermal Fillers to address more than one issue at the same time and create a more all-over rejuvenation.
