Taking the Mystery Out of Botox and Dermal Fillers

Even though Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm are the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States, many people still don’t understand how they work or what to look for when getting these treatments.

If you are interested in achieving a younger-looking appearance with the help of these noninvasive treatments, read on.

What to Look For in Botox and Dermal Filler Providers

Botox and dermal fillers provide reliable results when administered by experienced and well-trained professionals. You should always look for a provider who:

  • Has undergone appropriate training and certification to deliver treatments
  • Has been providing treatments for years
  • Works in a clean, trustworthy office
  • Has rave reviews from previous clients
  • Listens to your desires to ensure you receive personalized results

Remember, when looking for a provider, if it is too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t fall for cheap deals; remember that this your health and appearance.

How Much Treatments Cost

Treatment cost can vary widely depending on your region and the experience level of your provider. These treatments are typically not covered by your health insurance.

In general, Botox costs around $400 per treatment while dermal fillers can cost between $500 to $900 per syringe of filler. The type of filler you get and where it is administered, such as in your lips or in your cheeks, can make a huge difference.

How Long Treatment Takes

Both Botox and dermal fillers take only about half an hour to administer. You can easily receive treatment over your lunch break and return to work. You should not have obvious signs that you received treatment.

What Results You Should Expect

Botox won’t make you look like a teen star and fillers won’t give you Kardashian lips. However, you can expect to look like a younger version of yourself. In fact, it’s best to bring in pictures of your younger self to your consultation so you can show your provider what you want.

Your results are also long-lasting. Botox takes about a week to show full results and those results should last about 3 months. Fillers provide instant results that last a year or longer.
