Choosing Between Botox and Injectables in San Diego, California

Posted on July 22, 2013 by - Botox, Dermal Fillers

botox san diegoThe future of Botox and dermal fillers are far from going down the drain as recent statistics reveal an increase in the demand for these wrinkle-busting treatments in 2012. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released their annual statistics, which revealed a 5 percent increase in cosmetic procedures, including Botox and fillers, performed in 2011. With a highly experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Carlos Chacon, getting injectables and Botox in San Diego is safe, easy, and yields great results!

The majority of the population actually believes that Botox is the only non-invasive way to treat wrinkles. However, this is not actually the case.

When to Choose Botox

Botox, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), is actually useful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles that have only recently appeared and formed, also known as “active” facial lines. Apart from the Botox, other FDA-approved neuromuscular toxins include Dysport and Xeomin.

When to Choose Fillers

On the other hand, dermal fillers are actually used to significantly reduce the appearance of “firmly established wrinkles”. Specifically, they are used to soften facial creases, plump your lips and enhance shallow contours.  Sometimes, dermal fillers are recommended in conjunction with Botox.

In choosing between Botox and dermal fillers in San Diego, a thorough consultation with Dr. Chacon should be in order to deliver the results you’re aiming for.
