5 Popular Benefits of Botox and Fillers

5 Popular Benefits of Botox and Fillers

In 2022, the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were neuromodulators made of botulism type A, such as Botox®, and dermal fillers, such as those in the Juvéderm® line. These two procedures and methods occupy the first and second spots, respectively

If you haven’t yet experienced the effects of Botox and fillers, you may wonder why so many women and men turn to them for their rejuvenating and remodeling effects. Is it time to try them out for yourself? But you also may wonder what kinds of benefits you can expect.

At Eye Associates of Monmouth in Colts Neck, New Jersey, our expert ophthalmologist, John Ghobrial, MD, wants you to see clearly and look beautiful, too. That’s why our team provides a variety of cosmetic services, including Botox and Juvéderm injections.

What are the benefits of using Botox and Juvéderm to smooth and recontour your face? Following are five of them.

1. You look and feel younger

The most obvious benefit to Botox and Juvéderm treatments is that they erase the fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in your face that make you look older. This can change the way others perceive you, too. Each injectable has a different mechanism of action so you can improve the different types of wrinkles and trouble spots.

Botox treats dynamic wrinkles on your forehead. It works by blocking the signals your brain sends to your muscles when you make an expression. Botox erases:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Crow’s feet

In contrast, Juvéderm treats static wrinkles. Various filler formulations can treat a variety of deficits, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Perioral lines

After your Botox and Juvéderm treatments, your skin is smoother and silkier. Not only do you look younger when you gaze at your rejuvenated face in the mirror, but it can make you feel younger, too.

2. Your lips are fuller

One sign of aging that you may not even notice until you come across some old photos or videos is the thinning of your lips over time. Thinner lips make your entire face look older. Plumping them up with Juvéderm makes your face look younger.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for aging to take its toll on your lips. If you’re not happy with your lip shape or volume — at any age — we can use Juvéderm to add more pout and symmetry. The result is fuller, sexier lips.

3. You can have better cheekbones

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm don’t just fill in wrinkles and lips. They can even recontour your face so you have a more uplifted and elegant look. Perhaps you’re frustrated with flat cheekbones? We build them up with Juvéderm Voluma to give you the look of higher cheekbones.

A benefit of cheek contouring is that it makes you look younger, too. The volume added by Juvéderm lifts your entire lower face slightly.

4. You feel better

One unexpected benefit of Botox that researchers have found is that it reduces depression. When your forehead can’t frown, your brain no longer gets the feedback that you’re troubled or upset. Your unfurrowed, unworried brow translates into an unworried brain, too. 

5. You can delay or never have plastic surgery

If the idea of going under the knife sends shivers through your body, you may explore the idea of a “liquid face-lift.” We use a combination of Botox and Juvéderm to smooth and lift your facial and neck skin for a revitalized look.

Of course, surgical face-lifts last for a decade or more. When you undergo a liquid face-lift, you must retouch the Botox every four months to maintain your results. Juvéderm fillers can last 1-2 years, depending on the thickness and formulation.
