Botox is such a hot topic in the news these days – whether it’s about that mom who gave her 8-year old Botox (we say “crazy!”) or a celebrity who shows up with a slightly different look to her face – Botox gets the rap, both good and bad. Lots of people seem to think that Botox is the end-all solution to re-capturing a youthful look. We often hear “I want Botox to make my wrinkles go away and to make me look younger!”
Well, we have a little secret for you!
Yes, Botox is one of our favorites when it comes to anti-aging treatments, but more often than not, we use it in conjunction with dermal fillers. Botox (and Dysport, which is extremely similar to Botox) relaxes the muscle in the forehead area (where it is most often used) which erases any trace of forehead lines and the frown between the eyebrows, and creates a very smooth forehead. It can also be used to smooth out wrinkles around the eye and the crinkles on the nose. After that, the rest is up to dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers can really re-create a youthfulness to a face by filling in areas that have lost volume due to age, and gravity. As we age, our full cheeks and defined jawlines soften, our skin becomes less elastic and the lines around our nose, mouth, eyes deepen. All of this can make us look tired, sad, angry (even though we really aren’t), and, well there is no better way to put it, old. The good news is that dermal fillers can replace the volume that has been lost!. The fillers can plump lips, re-instate long lost cheekbones, fill in lines such as crows feet, nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth), marionettes (the lines from the edge of the lips into the chin area), glabellar region (frown between the eyebrows), and it can even raise depressed acne scars and more.
At Blu Cocoon we believe the real beauty of dermal fillers is that, if done correctly (by a very skilled practitioner), no one will know that you had anything “done”. You will just look more relaxed, refreshed, and youthful. But you might be so excited about your new “look” that you may just have to share the secret. And that’s okay with us!
Blu Cocoon offers Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus dermal fillers. Make an appointment with us to see what dermal fillers can do for you!
