5 Reasons to Choose Botox and Fillers Over Cosmetic Surgery

In the past, you had to turn to cosmetic surgery ultimatelyIfto rejuvenate your skin or restore a more youthful appearance. Fortunately, innovative aesthetic treatments, such as Botox® and dermal fillers, have made it easier than ever to enhance your beauty so you can love the skin you’re in (again!).

At Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center in Warrenton, Virginia, Juan-Carlos Caballero, MD, provides comprehensive skincare and cosmetic solutions for people of all ages. If you have been dreaming of a fresh and vibrant new you, here are five reasons to choose Botox and fillers over cosmetic surgery.

1. No incisions

First and foremost, why choose surgery when you don’t have to? Unlike cosmetic surgical procedures that require incisions and stitches, Dr. Caballero administers Botox and dermal filler Juvederm filler treatments using a needle. These minimally invasive cosmetic treatments are known as facial injectables and work in very different ways. 

Botox injections deliver small amounts of medication to relax the muscles in your face that are causing “dynamic” fine lines and wrinkles due to movement. Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, on the other hand, restore lost volume in the face by injecting a solution or hyaluronic “filler” into a specific area, such as your lips or cheeks.

2. Personalized solutions

There’s a reason why minimally invasive cosmetic treatments have grown in popularity since 2000: They provide completely personalized solutions that can address numerous issues, such as:

After discussing your aesthetic goals, Dr. Caballero can guide you through the best treatment options, which could include Botox, fillers, or a combination of the two.

3. Little downtime

Getting Botox or Juvederm filler requires a simple office appointment, and little to no downtime is needed. In fact, if you choose Botox, you can resume most of your normal activities immediately after your treatment. 

If you choose dermal fillers, you can usually resume most activities right away, but Dr. Caballero often recommends avoiding intense activities for 24-48 hours.

4. Low Risk

Undergoing any surgical treatment always comes with risks, but you can avoid them by choosing facial injectables, such as Botox or dermal fillers. And the risks associated with these treatments tend to be low and uncommon

In most cases, you can expect minor swelling or bruising at the injection site, which should fade quickly.

5. Fast results

When it comes to our appearance, we all want results fast. And that’s what you get with facial injectables, especially fillers. 

If you want to restore lost volume with dermal fillers, you can see changes immediately. If you choose Botox, it usually takes about a week to start seeing results, and you get the full effects within two weeks.

But the best part? They both provide natural-looking results that can help you look and feel radiant.
