Why Patients Might Choose Botox™ Over Dermal Fillers
- Posted on: Jan 15 2023
Botox™ is a popular injectable used to turn back time, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. But what might make a patient choose Botox™ over dermal fillers? Our team at Foster MD can help you make the right choice for your unique concerns.
Why Might I Consider Botox™ Over Traditional Dermal Fillers for Addressing the Signs of Aging on the Face?
Dr. Wayne P. Foster of Foster MD explains that Botox™ can be an excellent choice for addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. This treatment is often an excellent option when you want to achieve subtle results that simply reduce wrinkles and fine lines rather than introducing more volume into the facial structure. In addition, since this type of injection uses very small amounts of Botox™, it can help you achieve natural-looking outcomes without altering your appearance too much.
What Areas of the Face Can Botox™ Be Effectively Used?
Botox™ is commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions over time as we make expressions or squint in bright light. The injections essentially prevent these muscles from contracting further and help smooth away these wrinkles for a more youthful complexion. Botox™ is most often used on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.
Are There Any Risks Associated With Botox™ Injections?
While Botox™ is a very safe and effective treatment, it is important to take care when choosing a provider for this procedure. It is essential to only work with an experienced practitioner who has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and can select the best injection sites and doses to achieve your desired results while minimizing potential side effects. Dr. Wayne P. Foster uses a very fine needle that minimizes discomfort during injections and achieves optimal outcomes in his patients. In addition, he waits until the right time in your recovery trajectory before performing your touch-up so you can ensure optimal healing after each procedure. He is one of the top plastic surgeons in the areas of Monmouth and Ocean County, ensuring patients in New Jersey get the best possible care.
