How do You Want Injectables to Serve You?

Dermal Fillers Leesburg VAInjectable cosmetic solutions have only been around in the United States for about 17 years; and yet, we don’t know how we ever lived without them. Since we first met Botox in 2002, our love for injectables has only grown. As it has, we’ve been fortunate enough to see a myriad of products become available. The use of Botox and dermal fillers has become the new norm, all but replacing surgical lift procedures for many people.  Moreover, injectables are now even used to ward off the signs of aging before they take root.

How Botox and Dermal Fillers Make the Perfect Pair for a Younger Face

You may be relatively familiar with the terms “Botox,” “dermal fillers,” and even “injectables,” but you may still wonder what they are all for, how they actually work and if they are essentially all the same. Here, we detail the differences so you can see why Botox and fillers are a perfect pairing for your most beautiful face.

Botox, the Mother of All Injectables, originated as a medical therapy. Injected to reduce muscle spasticity related to certain medical disorders, the botulinum toxin on which Botox is based also achieved noticeable cosmetic improvements. The action of this purified neurotoxin is to bind to neuroreceptors in muscle tissue. This bond blocks the uptake of the chemical that causes muscles to contract. As muscle contraction is soothed, the overlying skin smooths out and looks younger.

Dermal fillers have a different effect on tissue than Botox. In fact, dermal fillers are not used in the muscle but in the soft tissues around the eyes, nose, and mouth. The majority of dermal fillers that have been developed are based on hyaluronic acid, an organic carbohydrate that the body uses in joints, eyes, and the skin. When introduced to soft tissue, hyaluronic acid attracts thousands of water molecules, flooding tissue in a controlled manner to smooth creases and improve contours.

When you understand how injectables like Botox and dermal fillers work, you can choose how you want them to serve you. It isn’t necessary to wait until the signs of aging become frustrating and constant to schedule your injectable treatment. Many of the clients of our Sterling med spa receive treatment to reduce the intensity of dynamic wrinkles so they do not become permanent in the first place.
