Botox & Dermal Fillers- Which is best for you?

At Beginning’s Laser and Aesthetic in Ocean, New Jersey we focus on helping people look and feel their best. Thanks to the latest fillers and injectables, we can help you look younger without the long recovery time or the invasiveness of plastic surgery.

521156027Ready to turn back the hands of time but not sure which treatment is best for you? Here’s a breakdown of facial fillers and injectables used to rejuvenate the skin and diminish wrinkles:

Botox: a cosmetic injectable that reduces muscle activity to smooth wrinkles. It is typically used for dynamic wrinkles or the lines between the brows. For most, its results last for 3 months.

Juvederm: a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is used to treat static wrinkles or smile lines.  Its effects can last up to 9 months.

Restylane: also a hyaluronic acid facial filler and also used to treat moderate to severe folds in the mid face like Juvederm. It adds volume smooth wrinkles and is the first and only FDA-approved lip enhancement. Two treatments can last up to 18 months.

Sculptra Aesthetic: a dermal filler that replaces lost collagen. It can treat static wrinkles and sunken cheeks, eyes or temples with long lasting results.

Radiesse: a long lasting dermal filler that stimulates collagen production and is used to treat static wrinkles. It is ideal for facial contouring due to its lasting effects.

When deciding which treatment is right for you take into consideration the location and severity of the wrinkles, your treatment goals, and your willingness to undergo follow-up treatments. At Beginnings Aesthetic and Laser Dr. Theocharides will create a customized treatment plan for you which may include a combination of facial rejuvenation procedures.
