What is Fillers & Botox ?
Whether you need to fill up sunken areas on your face or to reduce the appearance of wrinkles to look younger, Dr Jag has the perfect solution for you without going through any surgeries. Using non-surgical cosmetic treatment like Botox and fillers, you can regain confidence and youthful look with just 1 treatment that could last up to 12 months!
People easily get these two types of injectables confused all the time, but here’s an easy way to distinguish between the two: Botox® is for limiting muscle movement, fillers are for building volume.
Botox® reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers, however, fill the trouble areas with a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump and lift the skin to replace volume loss.
Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox® injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal. At White Coat Aesthetics, we offer distractors from the pain such as a vibrating tool used on the skin near the injection site, ice packs, and even numbing cream, so you may not feel much pain, if anything at all!
Common side effects of any injectable include:
- Muscle weakness near the injection sites
- Slight bruising
In general, Botox® injections are meant to last up to 6 months while fillers can last up to 12 months. To keep results going, you could need a follow-up treatment. After that, you should be able to expect your treatments to begin lasting longer.
