FAQ: When Should I Start Dermal Fillers & BOTOX®?

Botox #9This is a question that we receive frequently here at MCH Laser & Wellness Center in Odessa, TX. Unfortunately, there is no correct answer to this query, as everyone experiences the aging process differently.  What some patients consider a wrinkle, others do not – as they say, perception is reality!

However, there are definite signs of aging that occur over time, primarily surfacing in the mid to late 30’s and 40s. These include looser skin, a more relaxed jaw line, fine lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage, frown lines, uneven skin texture and hyperpigmentation. Often, even women in their 20’s turn to Botox as a preventative measure, to stop fine lines and wrinkles before they start. Utilizing this non-invasive treatment as well as a targeted anti-aging skin regime and limited sun exposure is an effective prescription.

The use of Botox and dermal fillers are one of our most highly sought after treatments for wrinkle correction, as they are minimally invasive, have no downtime and offer our patients real, rapid results!

Benefits of dermal fillers and Botox are:

  • FDA-approved
  • Little to downtime
  • No anesthesia
  • Non surgical approach to wrinkle correction and prevention
  • Safe for all skin types and tones
  • Results can last 4-9 months, though individual results vary

At MCH Laser and Wellness center, we call the use of  dermal fillers and Botox together a “liquid lift”, as it can mimic many of the same results as a surgical facelift.  There are a variety of fillers that can be used to treat various areas of the face, and can be used in conjunction with Botox depending on the level of correction that is needed. Fine lines around eyes, nose, mouth and forehead are often eradicated!
