Beyond Botox: Other Facial Shaping Fillers

botoxFine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable consequence of aging, but you do not have to live with them if you do not want to. Botox and other treatments are available to lift and firm your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Volume-Enhancing Facial Fillers

When you hear the term “facelift,” you probably think of Botox. Botox is certainly one of the most common treatments for wrinkles, but it is not the only option available to you. Below you will find an overview of other facial shaping fillers.

Xeomin – This treatment is a type of neuromodulator (like Botox), and it is just as effective. This type of treatment is most commonly used to decrease facial wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and at the smile line. Where Xeomin beats Botox is in the fact that it works more quickly — results often set in within a few days.

Juvederm Ultra XC – This treatment is a type of lip filler that can be used to give your lips a natural more full-looking appearance. Juvederm Ultra XC offers long-lasting results, adding volume to your lips and reducing fine lines around the mouth.

Juvederm Voluma XC – This treatment is the only FDA-approved injectable gel proven to add instant volume to the cheek area. Juvederm Voluma XC adds subtle lift, which will restore contour and give you a more youthful-looking profile. This treatment lasts for up to 2 years.

Belotero – This injectable treatment is particularly effective in reducing fine lines. This treatment doesn’t alter the texture of your skin except for removing wrinkles.

If you are tired of seeing fine lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror, you may want to consider a facial shaping filler treatment. While Botox is certainly the most popular, there are other options to consider, so do your homework before you commit.
