Change Your Appearance the Easy Way

Dreaming of looking just a little younger? Multiple studies have revealed that a younger appearance can help with self-esteem and therefore lead to more opportunities in life. Yet many people are reluctant to undergo plastic surgery because of the recovery time and chance of side effects. You have options to help you look younger without undergoing plastic surgery. Avoid the scalpels, long recovery times, and risks of anesthesia that are involved in most plastic surgery solutions. Consider the immediate benefits of Dermal Fillers and Botox for much more rapid changes without the long period of rest time. Control costs and complications alike by considering Botox fillers and more.

Each patient receives a custom consultation on where Botox injections and fillers may make the biggest impact. With only the slightest discomfort and low risk of side effects, you’re choosing the best non-surgical beauty treatment that you can find. Get the youthful look you’re after without going under the knife.

What Makes Botox and Dermal Fillers Different?

While both dermal fillers and the best Botox Austin has to offer are available, they target different parts of the face for similar effects. They act differently, so you may need to use them both in conjunction for maximum effect.


Botox is injected in areas where underlying muscle tension is causing a wrinkle to form at the surface. This is usually found between and around the eyes, around the mouth, and a few other parts of the face. Botox can also help treat facial pain issues and migraines due to this tension-relieving action. TMJ issues in particular are often treated with Botox to relieve jaw stiffness and headaches.

Millions of people choose Botox each year to smooth out wrinkles and facial lines caused by repetitive tension in the underlying muscles. While each treatment at first only lasts about 3 months, using the treatments regularly can train the facial muscles to relax rather than causing these lines. Since it only takes a few minutes to undergo the treatment, it’s easy to update as needed.

Dermal Fillers

Built to plump up areas that have lost fat as you age, Dermal Fillers are very adaptable and easy to use in wrinkles and facial lines all over the face. A light touch can smooth and contour the face for an overall more youthful appearance. The results show up almost immediately and last between six months and two years. Everyone handles Dermal Fillers differently, so you’ll know more about how long it lasts for you after trying the first treatment.

Dermal Fillers are based around combating the natural and inevitable fat loss in the face as you age. If you’ve lost weight and feel like you have more lines on your face as a result, fillers are the best way to address the issue. Both fine lines and deep creases can be filled with fillers, but some types of wrinkles are better solved by Botox instead.

How Long Does Botox Take to Work?

You’ll see a little reduction in wrinkles within a few hours of treatment, but the proteins that work on the muscle tissue take about 3 to 5 days to reach a peak effect. Anywhere you avoid treating with injections will react normally, allowing you to maintain normal facial expressions.

Where are Dermal Fillers Usually Applied?

Dermal Fillers can be used in any wrinkle or fine line that needs filling, especially those that wouldn’t be solved by using Botox. However, you can also try increasing the contours around your cheekbones and cheeks with strategic use. Thinning lips can be plumped quickly with the right filler. Even facial and body scars can be hidden with the use of this material to help them blend in with the rest of the skin.

Can the Two Treatments Work Together?

Most dentists that do Botox end up recommending Dermal Fillers to complement the effects, and vice versa. Using the two treatments together is the best way to get a subtle youthful effect without having to commit to plastic surgery. We can advise you on which parts of your face will best respond to which treatment, resulting in a customized makeover that could take years off of your appearance.
