Botox or Fillers… What do I need?

A lot of Glow Med Spa’s clients have asked, “Whats the difference between Botox and Fillers?” Big difference… Huge!

Botox stops the muscle contractions; fillers plump up the furrows.  BUT it’s even more important to emphasize that in trained hands, Botox does not paralyze muscles. Rather, it is used in an artistic fashion to restore a more youthful appearance to the face.

A relatively painless procedure, Botox injections are virtually downtime free. Botox is great for stopping crow’s-feet and the vertical frown lines between the brows, and it prevents the muscle movement that leads to fine lines and furrows.

The treatment can also be used as an “injectable browlift,” to slightly elevate the brow and eliminate horizontal lines across the forehead to help the upper face look younger and more relaxed.

Glow Med SpaJust like injectable fillers, a topical anesthetic may be applied to make treatment more comfortable. Then, over a short period of time (roughly 10 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated), Dr. Redman will strategically place several injections. Results become visible in three to seven days, and last for three to four months.You may choose to use the treatment in conjunction with a filler to provide the best results.
