Botox and Fillers

What Age to Start Botox?

Botox has become a popular solution for reducing wrinkles, and many people wonder at what age they should start using it. The answer varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some individuals begin Botox in their late 20s or early 30s as a preventative measure, while others may not start until they notice more prominent signs of aging in their 40s or 50s. Botox can be effective for people of all ages in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, helping to maintain a youthful appearance over time.

How Often Do I Need to Get Botox?

The frequency of Botox injections can depend on several factors, including individual metabolism and the specific areas being treated. Typically, Botox injections are needed every 3-6 months to maintain optimal results. Some people with faster metabolisms may require more frequent treatments, while others might experience longer-lasting effects. Regular consultations with a qualified dermatologist can help determine the best schedule for your unique needs.

Botox Is Not Only for Facial Wrinkles but Also for Body Contouring

While Botox is well-known for its ability to smooth facial wrinkles, it also has applications for body contouring and other medical conditions. "Barbie Tox," for example, involves using Botox to release tension in the shoulders, creating a more relaxed and elongated neck. Botox can also be used for calf reduction to achieve a slimmer leg appearance. Additionally, it has therapeutic uses, such as treating tension migraines by targeting specific muscle groups to alleviate chronic pain.

Types of Botox

There are several types of botulinum toxin products approved by the FDA in the United States, with Xeomin™ being a notable example. Unlike other brands, Xeomin™ does not contain a conjugate protein, which means it has a "naked" form of the active ingredient. This can be beneficial for patients who may develop resistance to other types of Botox. Each brand has its own unique properties, and a dermatologist can help determine which product is best suited for your treatment goals.

What Age to Start Fillers?

Dermal fillers have become an essential tool in the fight against aging, and many individuals wonder at what age they should begin using them. The ideal age to start fillers varies based on individual goals and skin condition. Some people opt for fillers in their late 20s or early 30s as a preventive measure to maintain youthful volume, while others may start later when they notice significant volume loss or deeper lines. Fillers can be beneficial at any age, helping to enhance facial contours and smooth out wrinkles for a refreshed appearance.

Where Fillers Can Be Placed

Fillers are incredibly versatile and can be used to enhance various areas of the face and body. They are commonly placed in the temples to address temple hollowing, the tear troughs to rejuvenate under-eye areas, and the lips for added volume and definition. Fillers can also smooth nasolabial folds, enhance cheek volume, and define the jawline. Additionally, they can be used on the neck to improve texture, the dorsal hands to restore lost volume, and even the buttocks for a subtle lift. Suitable for both men and women and individuals of all ethnicities, fillers offer a customizable approach to achieving aesthetic goals.

Understanding Beauty and Cultural Differences at True Dermatology

At True Dermatology, our providers recognize the importance of understanding beauty and cultural differences in aesthetic standards. We tailor our cosmetic treatments to meet the unique needs and preferences of our diverse clientele. For example, Asian beauty standards often emphasize facial slimming and techniques that augment facial features more forward rather than laterally, compared to Western standards. Our expertise in these cultural nuances ensures that each patient receives personalized care that enhances their natural beauty while respecting their cultural identity. This commitment to individualized treatment helps us deliver exceptional and satisfying results for all our patients.

How Often Do I Need to Get Fillers?

The frequency of filler injections depends on the type of filler used and individual metabolic factors. Typically, fillers need to be reapplied every 6-18 months to maintain desired results. Some fillers, like those in the Juvederm line, may last up to two years, while others, such as Versa, might need more frequent touch-ups. Regular consultations with a qualified dermatologist can help determine the best schedule for your specific needs, ensuring that you achieve and maintain optimal results.

Fillers Are Not Only for Facial Wrinkles but Also for Facial Contouring

While fillers are widely known for their ability to smooth facial wrinkles, they are also highly effective for facial contouring and enhancing specific features. Fillers like Restylane and Radiesse can be used to add volume to the cheeks, define the jawline, and even enhance the lips. Additionally, fillers like Belotero are excellent for treating fine lines around the eyes and mouth, providing a natural and youthful look. These treatments can also address asymmetry and improve overall facial harmony.

Types of Fillers

There are several types of dermal fillers approved by the FDA, each with unique properties and benefits. Juvederm, known for its smooth gel consistency, is ideal for adding volume and hydration. Versa offers a balanced, natural look with minimal swelling. Restylane provides versatility in treating various facial areas, from fine lines to deeper folds. Radiesse, with its calcium-based microspheres, stimulates collagen production for long-lasting results. Belotero is perfect for superficial lines and delicate areas. A dermatologist can help determine which filler is best suited for your specific needs and aesthetic goals.

Patient success stories

Angela Z

TLDR: gentle clinician, expert knowledge of facial anatomy / muscles, good beauty aesthetic for natural look - highly recommend!

Dr. Sung fixed my facial asymmetry with just botox! My left side has always drooped a bit since I sleep on my left, and that has bothered me for the last few years. I've asked other providers to do this and they either said it couldn't be fixed or would do it and I'd see no results. I told this to Dr. Sung and 2 weeks after my appointment I noticed my left brow and outer eye corner were significantly lifted, and now it is finally symmetric with the right side of my face!

Dr. Sung did a thorough consultation, addressing both my medical and aesthetic concerns (jaw clenching, asymmetry, fine lines) with a gentle approach. He has the patient's best interests at heart, and cautioned against doing too much all at once even though this would be be more efficient / financially rewarding for him. Dr. Sung informed me of each decision to achieve the most natural look, and I feel like I had a say in my treatment plan that was balanced with his medical expertise. He also used small needles and a quick precise technique that I barely felt the injections!

Thank you again so much Dr. Sung!

Dr sung is the absolute best!!!

His skill of accentuating facial features while balancing out dominant points of contour to lips, cheeks, neck, and overall face is a true gift!!! I highly recommend true dermatology for any service or treatment you may be in need of.
