How Botox and Fillers Reduce Wrinkles

As we age, we tend to see those dreaded grey hairs appear as well as an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.  These are clear signs of aging. Although this is all part of the natural aging process, you do not have to live with these signs forever.  There are proven products and procedures that will help smooth away and fill in these lines and wrinkles without having to resort to something as drastic as a facelift. 

At Victory MedSpa in Austin, Texas, we address the issues of fine lines and wrinkles daily.  This is one of the most common requests that we get from potential clients.  We use Botox® and a variety of dermal fillers to accomplish this. In order to see if you are a candidate for this type of treatment, it is always recommended to call for a free consultation.  

How is Botox® Used? 

Botox® is most commonly used to help smooth out lines that are created when we are expressing ourselves through conversation, smiling, or laughing. These expression lines easily smooth away when your face is at rest, but when animated, they can be very noticeable and cause you to look older. Many of these expression lines occur in the more active areas of your face such as the forehead, smile, grimace, eyes, or frown areas. 

What are the most popular areas Botox® is used to treat? 

Many people choose to receive Botox® treatment in the forehead because this area tends to create the most expressive lines when someone is having an animated conversation. Many patients also opt to have Botox® administered in the crow’s lines that occur near the eyes.  However, there are many popular areas to treat to achieve a more youthful appearance. 

Is Botox® Permanent? 

Botox® is a temporary treatment that can last up to several months for most people. To keep your wrinkles and fine lines hidden, it is best to start a maintenance program and continue your efforts. 

How are Fillers Used? 

Fillers are used to treat static wrinkles (or wrinkles that are there all the time no matter if you are expressing yourself). Fillers are typically made of a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid which is a substance is found naturally in the body. Think of your skin as being deflated when there is a wrinkle. When the filler is injected, it inflates the area which in return creates a smoothing effect. Hyaluronic acid is known to pull moisture from the body to fill in the area even more. 

These days there are many options out there.  To understand what the best option for your needs may be, it is best to schedule a complementary consultation with the experienced team at Victory MedSpa. Contact us for a Botox® or dermal filler consultation in Austin, TX.
