Explore Botox and Fillers Options
As you get older, managing your health may start to include medical aesthetic services to address the common physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and a generally tired appearance in the face. Botox and dermal fillers are among the most common and popular aesthetic treatments because they are non-surgical and easy to receive in a short visit to the doctor’s office. They also have reliable, predictable results, so you can rest assured that your final look will be natural and beautiful after you receive either treatment.
At Internal Medicine Consultants of York, we provide both Botox and dermal fillers for your anti-aging treatment needs, alongside a suite of other non-surgical med spa treatments to help you look as great as you feel. Botox and fillers feel similar for patients—they are both injected treatments—but they work in different ways and address unique concerns. Our staff will guide you to the right options for your needs to eliminate frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, and drooping features around the brow and eyes.
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is designed to address the wrinkles that form in the brow and forehead as a result of frowning. The muscles under the skin cause the skin to fold, and as the skin begins to lose its elasticity, deep lines will appear due to this folding. Botox relaxes the underlying muscles, smoothing the skin and creating a more youthful appearance in the upper face.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Fat below the surface of the skin may diminish with time, leaving more lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The lips, jawline, and cheekbones can also lose fullness with the aging process. Dermal fillers do not target muscles but instead restore this lost volume. They usually contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Dermal fillers are made in a wide range of densities to address everything from emerging fine lines to deep-set wrinkles and sagging skin.
What Can You Expect With Injectables?
Botox and dermal fillers require very little downtime—there may be some minor swelling and redness in the skin, which will subside within a few days. Neither treatment option is permanent, so repeat injections will be necessary to maintain results. Botox lasts for about 3 months, and fillers can last from 6-12 months. Treatment usually causes only minor discomfort, which is effectively managed with topical anesthetics.
To ensure the most desirable results from Botox or dermal fillers, you should rely on the trusted care of an experienced physician. At Internal Medicine Consultants of York, you can find an artful approach to medical aesthetic treatments that will help you feel more confident and beautiful in your own skin.
