People tend to confuse fillers and neurotoxins (wrinkle reducers), so we’re here to help set the record straight.
Fillers are injected under the skin and help plump up and add volume. Typically, they’re used to fill out lips and cheekbones and soften the look of certain creases and wrinkles.
Modern neurotoxin (wrinkle reducer) injectables are targeted toward finer, smaller lines, such as crow’s feet or the “elevens” between the brows. They help keep the muscles still that would otherwise cause repeated movement and subsequent wrinkling and creasing.
But where do you even start? There are a lot of solutions on the menu, and it helps to go to a qualified, high-caliber expert who can walk you through your decision-making process. Also, this isn’t the time to go the discount-coupon route, DIY purchased online or, heaven forbid, a filler or Botox party at someone’s house. Though results aren’t permanent, many of them can last two months to three years, and if you get an uneven or unsightly result, it’s hard to reverse it. “The AAD recommends that you see a doctor who has expertise injecting fillers and many satisfied patients. The results you see depend largely on the experience of the person performing this procedure. A dermatologist has the knowledge and experience required to inject fillers safely and effectively,” advises the American Academy of Dermatology Association educational website.
