Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are Botox® and fillers?

Botox and fillers are two categories of cosmetic injectables, both available at Glow Dental Spa. While both let you enjoy a more youthful appearance, they work differently and yield slightly different results. 

No matter which cosmetic injectable you choose, you’ll still look natural and your features won’t feel frozen. Botox and fillers are different from one another in these ways:

Botox

Botox is a branded product that works by relaxing the muscles in your face that form common wrinkles and lines, like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.

Fillers

Fillers can eliminate wrinkles, too, but in a different way. They contain gellike components that stay under your skin, holding shape for months at a time. You can also enhance the volume of your lips, cheeks, temples, or hands with dermal fillers.


What are my options for Botox and fillers?

At Glow Dental Spa, Dr. Ahkami provides many of today’s top cosmetic injectables. Botox, of course, is the most well known. However, these other brands are also making a huge impression on the world of cosmetic medicine:

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm is a brand of dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid. This substance is already plentiful in your skin, but you lose some of it as you age. It locks onto water molecules to help your skin hold hydration and stay plump.

Restylane®

Restylane, another brand of hyaluronic acid filler, is thicker than Juvederm and works well specifically on deeper wrinkles and folds.

Kybella®

Unlike Juvéderm and Restylane, Kybella isn’t a filler. Instead, it reduces the size of your double chin by destroying the fat cells in the area and prompting your body to reabsorb them over the course of several weeks. What are the benefits of getting cosmetic injections like Botox and fillers?

When used for cosmetic purposes, Botox, fillers, and other cosmetic injectables like Kybella generally won’t do anything for your health. Rather, they make small tweaks to your appearance that can help you embrace aging. 

These products retain their popularity because of the boost in confidence that they offer those who use them. If you’re happy with the end result, you can come back to Glow Dental Spa for more injections as needed.
