What is Botox?

botox facial filler

 

Botox, facial fillers, and laser skin treatments are very safe, and have minor side effects, a new study suggests.

 

These cosmetic procedures could cause minor side effects such as bruising, lumpiness, or skin discoloration, but these occur in less than 1 percent of cases, according to the study published (Nov. 5) in the journal JAMA Dermatology.

 

The study included only dermatologists who routinely perform these procedures, so it's possible that negative outcomes could be more frequent in the hands of less-experienced providers, and it's still possible that people simply don't like the way they look after cosmetic procedures.

Low risk

In the past several years, minor cosmetic procedures such as laser skin treatments, Xeomin, and facial fillers have surged in popularity. Xeomin is aimed at smoothing out wrinkles, whereas facial fillers are used to plump up features that have been deflated by age or sun exposure. Lasers are used for removing hair, tattoos, and spots on the skin, as well as tightening the skin. Unlike traditional facelifts, these procedures can be done without general anesthesia, and patients often need only a day to recover.

 

About 1 in every 416 procedures resulted in a negative outcome such as bruising, swelling, or lumpiness in the skin. But some procedures were riskier than others. Procedures involving neurotoxins, such as Xeomin, caused side effects in just 1 in 3,333 cases, whereas fillers such as Juvederm caused lumpiness or beading in about 1 in 135 cases.

 

The minor side effects may make these treatments an attractive alternative to a facelift, which requires cutting the skin and going under anesthesia.

 

Safety Varies

Findings show that even though these procedures are safe but in less experienced hands could cause real harm.

For instance, using a high-energy laser in the wrong setting could block blood vessels and cause tissue death.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's):

Will I still look like myself if I get Botox/injectable wrinkle reducers?

The most common concern patients have is they're afraid of looking ‘done.’ They're afraid of not looking like themselves after treatment. Many patients have that fear because they have seen less-than-desirable outcomes. When the treatment is done well, however, you can have subtle results.

 

Will Botox or injectables hurt?

Honestly, it depends on which type of injectables are being used, and the experience of the provider and each individual being injected. Many of the experts point out that a lot of fillers also have a local anesthetic built in to make the procedure even less uncomfortable. However, if you do experience any unusual pain, be sure to immediately inform the provider. 

 

Is it too soon for me to start trying wrinkle reducers? Is it too late?

While everyone forms wrinkles a bit differently, for adults over the age of 18, there is no set time to start other than your provider determining that you are an appropriate candidate. 

Overall, however, an appropriate time to start using wrinkle reducers is when you see moderate to severe wrinkles that are apparent even after you’ve stopped animating your face. “I tell my patients all the time, [young adults] have crow's feet when they're smiling. [But, when they stop, those crow’s feet should go away.] What bothers us is when we're not smiling and those wrinkles are still there.” 

And no, it’s never too late to consider injectables! 

 

How long will wrinkle reducers ( Botox and fillers ) last? 

For wrinkle reducers, retreatment may be desired every three to four months, though it should not be given any sooner than that. For fillers, most tend to last from six months to a year — or even two years — depending on the type of filler and area of the face treated. 

 

Will Botox or fillers make my face look fat?

An overly plumped look is less than ideal: It can also be a byproduct of poorly done fillers. That’s why it is essential to seek out a highly skilled licensed provider for your procedure, who will know whether filler is your best choice for adding volume, or if you should be seeking out other options.

 

Are Botox/injectable wrinkle reducers safe?

Injectable wrinkle reducers are FDA-approved prescription treatments for adults to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face. “It's important to know that [injectable wrinkle reducers are] a purified laboratory product.” However, as always, be mindful that there are risks associated with wrinkle reducers, so it’s important to talk to your doctor about them, as well as the benefits to see if they’re right for you.
