Nearly 10 million Americans choose injectable cosmetic procedures each year. Botox® and related injections address active wrinkles, caused by contracted muscles, while dermal fillers add volume and support to return your skin to a more youthful appearance.
Both types of treatments require interpretation of your face and precise control of injections to achieve natural-looking results that don’t scream that you’ve had work done. In particular, knowledge of the anatomy of your face is crucial for successful treatment. You can trust your aesthetics treatments to Tiffany Su, MD of Skin Shop MedSpa in Houston, Texas.
While all types of medical practices and spas offer cosmetic injectables these days. Not all have the training and experience of Dr. Su and her team. At Skin Shop MedSpa, your aesthetic professional takes time to discuss your desired outcomes and cosmetic goals before they begin to administer Botox or dermal fillers.
When it comes to Botox injections and dermal fillers, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. You want a knowledgeable, experienced medical team to advise which treatments are right for you, one that will deliver the precise products and amounts of injectables needed to achieve your desired results.
Our medical aesthetics team has experience in facial structure and muscle movement, understanding how dermal fillers and neuromodulators, like Botox, work to provide you with a more revitalized appearance.
Botox is an FDA-approved prescription injection, which means only a qualified medical doctor can order it and prescribe it. There’s no generic version of Botox.
While extremely rare, reactions to neuromodulator injections are theoretically possible, so receiving your injections at a medical practice ensures the highest safety and protection against any adverse reaction.
Dermal fillers are distinct products with their own characteristics. It’s not a good idea to trust a generic form of dermal filler. Black market dermal fillers may contain impure, unsafe ingredients that can cause severe allergic reactions that lead to swelling, lumpy skin, and even the death of skin cells.
Skin Shop MedSpa only offers the FDA-approved Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Belotero Balance®, and Revanesse Versa® products. These are extensively tested dermal fillers that can plump up your lips, add volume, and smooth out wrinkles. And since each work differently on different areas of your face, your medical aesthetics expert matches the perfect treatment combination to your needs, enhancing the appearance of all types of lines, wrinkles, and facial contours, so you get outstanding results every time — from the top of your forehead to the bottom of your chin.
Since Botox contains botulinum toxin, there may be certain medications, like blood-thinners, that increase your risk of bruising at the injection sites. Your medical aesthetics professional identifies potential drug interactions and can advise how these may affect Botox or dermal filler treatments.
There’s no substitute for top-of-the-line products, and there shouldn’t be a substitute for qualified medical professionals administering these injections either. It’s not only a younger-looking appearance at stake but part of your overall health.
