Injectable treatments like BOTOX® and dermal fillers make it easier than ever to keep your skin looking young and bright. Both are convenient treatments that take less than an hour to complete, but each is suited better to treat slightly different skin concerns. At Rejuvenation LaserMed Spa & Weight Loss , we offer both treatments for anyone looking to improve or maintain the quality of their skin.

What Is the Difference Between BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers?
There are two main types of wrinkles: dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are the lines and folds that form over time with every facial expression we make. These include wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Static wrinkles, however, accompany the loss of elasticity in the skin and form no matter how often we laugh, frown or smile.
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator that, when injected, relaxes the muscles in the treated area. When these muscles are allowed to relax, the skin above them will smooth out accordingly. This makes a treatment like BOTOX® a fantastic option for anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which develop with every facial expression we make.
If your skin concerns mainly include static wrinkles, you would likely benefit more from treatment with fillers. Dermal fillers work by restoring essential volume to the skin, helping it stay full and youthful.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX® and Fillers?
Both BOTOX® and dermal fillers are non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments that require minimal downtime. As long as you are in generally good health, you should make a good candidate for either treatment. The best injectable for your needs will depend on the skin concern you are looking to treat.
When Will I See Results?
Results can be seen immediately after treatment with fillers. You may notice your skin is somewhat smoother immediately after receiving BOTOX® injections, but most people enjoy full results about one week after treatment.
Results with BOTOX® can last up to six months. With dermal fillers, results can last anywhere from several months up to an entire year depending on the filler you choose.
The Benefits of Injectable Treatments
Injectable treatments like BOTOX® and dermal fillers come with a host of advantages over more invasive measures like surgery. These include:
- Quick treatment time
- Little to no downtime
- Minimally invasive treatment
- Safe for almost anyone to use
The quick treatment sessions that injectable treatments allow make them an especially attractive option for anyone looking to improve the look and feel of their skin without having to devote hours to a surgical procedure and weeks to a recovery period. Once your treatment has been completed, you can go right back to your daily routine.
