What are Botox and fillers?
Botox and dermal fillers are injectable medications that address wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. An array of injectable options that offer safe, effective skin rejuvenation is available at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic.
How does Botox work?
Botox addresses wrinkles and lines that form due to repeated facial expressions. Frowning, squinting, and raising your eyebrows can leave permanent creases in the skin over the muscles. Botox interrupts nerve signals between your brain and the treated muscles, so they relax, and the skin above them becomes smoother, resulting in a pleasant and more youthful appearance.
Botox results typically start to become visible 24-48 hours after your treatment. Your results can last up to four months.
Which areas can Botox address?
Botox is FDA approved to treat wrinkles and lines in these areas:
- Crow’s feet
- Worry lines (“elevenses”)
- Forehead lines
The specialists at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic have the training and expertise to create natural-looking results that never make your face appear frozen or interfere with your ability to make facial expressions.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers contain a gel solution that adds volume to hollow areas and plumps up sagging skin and creases to create a smoother, fuller appearance. The experts at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic use the Juvéderm® line of fillers. These contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and is abundantly present in younger skin.
Fillers can address the following concerns:
- Hollow cheeks
- Skin laxity
- Smile lines
- Nasolabial creases
Juvéderm fillers are also useful for adding subtle volume to thin lips. Results are visible immediately, and depending on the individual Juvéderm product, your results can last from six months to two years.
What should I expect with injectable treatments?
The team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic uses extra-fine needles to perform cosmetic injections. No anesthesia is required for Botox treatments, and some Juvéderm fillers include a numbing solution. The injections can sometimes sting a little, but this sensation doesn’t last long.
You may have a little redness or irritation around the injection site, but this usually subsides quickly. More severe side effects are possible but rare.
