Dermal Filler or Neurotoxin: Which Option is Best for You?
Dermal fillers add volume to the face. At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we offer a comprehensive line of fillers from the Juvederm® and Restylane® families, enabling us to address common concerns such as:
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Hollow or sunken cheeks
- Depressions underneath the eyes
- Asymmetrical or insubstantial lips
Restylane® Lyft, available at our office, has also been approved for use on the back of the hands. It is the first and currently only dermal filler to be approved for this use.
The dermal fillers at our Mechanicsburg office have been selected for their efficacy and history of safe application. A single treatment can last for six to 18 months.
We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, two of the most trusted and effective neurotoxins on the market. Unlike fillers, which stimulate collagen and elastin production, neurotoxins work to relax muscles, allowing the overlying skin to become smooth.
Neurotoxins can be used to treat:
- Forehead creases
- Lines in between eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Nasolabial folds
In some cases, neurotoxins can also be used to address issues like pebbly chin and skin laxity along the jaw as well.
Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® will provide results for three to four months. Results can be maintained through touch-up visits.
Which Option is Best for You?
Dermal fillers and neurotoxins treat different issues. The one that is appropriate for you will be based on your specific concerns, anatomy, and ultimate desires.
During your initial consultation, we will listen carefully to your requests and provide an honest assessment of your best options. This may include a dermal filler, a neurotoxin, or a combination of treatments. It may also include nonsurgical options, such as laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel, that address issues outside the reach of injectables.
At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we take time to understand each patient’s individual needs, allowing us to provide the most suitable treatments. Please call us at 717-732-9000 to schedule your consultation and learn more. Located in Mechanicsburg, we serve all surrounding areas of Pennsylvania.
