Botox & Fillers Vs. Skincare - What’s the Difference?
The secret to radiant skin starts with your everyday routine before turning to more invasive procedures.
Aging is inevitable. It's something that happens to everyone and seems to creep up on you when you least expect it! The days of splashing some cleanser on your face twice a day to maintain beautiful skin don’t last forever (ah, our early 20s were simpler times). Before you know it you have puffy eyes, dark spots, and extra wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror. Sounds familiar? Well, don’t get discouraged ladies.
You may think that keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy as you age requires getting botox & fillers every so often. After all, these cosmetic procedures are so common and routine now that there are TV shows just about aesthetic treatments (that are insanely popular!).
Don’t get us wrong, injectables are fantastic and can do wonders for reducing wrinkles, sunken eyes, and fine lines — but the real antidote to maturing skin starts with a next-level skincare routine backed by science. Let's take MD GLAM by Dr. Cat (also known as the world-renowned Dr. 90210) for instance.
Dr. Cat formulated a state-of-the-art, scientifically proven system that fights signs of aging and boosts confidence with unprecedented results (but we’ll get to that in a minute).
The scoop on injectables
Botox & Dysport
Both Botox and Dysport are potent neurotoxins (don’t worry, they are completely safe in the minuscule levels used for injections) that effectively paralyze the underlying facial muscles temporarily, preventing those notable lines and wrinkles from being visible for several months.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox leads as the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure ahead of everything else with over 4.4 million procedures being performed every year.
These injections can be immensely helpful for:
- Smoothing crow’s feet, frown lines, brow furrow wrinkles, lip & bunny lines
- Softening jawlines
- Reducing skin dimpling in the chin area
- Reducing the appearance of neck bands
- Correcting gummy smiles without invasive surgery
- Boosting overall confidence
Though Botox & Dysport may have once been a little on the taboo side, they are now widely popular and affordable options for promoting and maintaining youthful skin. fillers
Paralyzing the muscles of the face to diminish fine lines and wrinkles is just one part of the equation. During the aging process, our bodies naturally lose some subcutaneous fat (fat just under the skin). Because of this, characteristics like smile lines or crow’s feet can become more obvious without fat there to keep areas plump.
Other factors like loss of elasticity, too much sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices all impact the appearance of your skin over time.
Fillers are another option to help restore the young-looking contour of your face without the need for invasive cosmetic procedures.
How dermal fillers can help:
- Revive shallow, sunken contours
- Eliminate under eye shadows
- Plump thinning lips
- Soften smile lines and other creases
The most common fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance found in the skin. HA is preferred for its ability to hydrate and increase volume while being completely safe and natural to the body.
How often should you get injectables?
You should see your cosmetic surgeon, dermatologist, or certified aesthetic medical professional every 3-6 months to maximize success with injections like Botox & fillers. Keeping up with regular treatments can prevent deeper lines from forming and improve your skin’s look as you age.
