Botox vs. Fillers
For image conscious people, the question of Botox vs. fillers has become a frequent topic of discussion. While the two techniques have a similar function – both reduce the amount of lines and wrinkles on the face without surgery – they work in completely different ways. That’s why a lot of folks are turning to highly regarded San Fernando Valley plastic surgeon, Dr. Shervin Aminpour of Hills Aesthetics for his input on the matter.
Botox is essentially an agent that can selectively reduce the movement in areas of the face that are most likely to wrinkle. This has the dual effect of minimizing wrinkles in the here and now, while also reducing the amount of future wrinkling caused by such movements as laughing or frowning. Fillers are pretty much exactly what the word implies, a family of substances suitable for injection into the human face which can fill in wrinkle or also be used to gently sculpt certain aspects of the face’s appearance. Dr. Aminpour has seen outstanding results with both techniques.
Even so, patients do have preferences and Dr. Aminpour knows those feelings must be respected. Restalyne in Los Angeles is among the best known products and is very useful for filling in wrinkles and reshaping the facing for a more attractive and harmonious appearance. Botox in Los Angeles is often considered to be synonymous with the world of show business and high style.
In fact, the question of Botox vs. fillers is far from cut-and-dried. The popularity of Botox and fillers has caused some patients to make premature assumptions but, really, the only way to decide which is appropriate for you is to come in for an appointment with Dr. Aminpour. He’ll be happy to provide you with all the information you need to decide which approach is best for you.
