Dermatology extends beyond the health of your skin. It also includes the appearance of your face, which can have a significant impact on your confidence and mental health.
If you've been thinking about reducing the appearance of fine lines, slowing the aging process on your skin, or plumping your lips, you'll be pleased to know our expert dermatologist, Dr. Robert Patrignelli, serving Trumbull, CT, and the nearby region, can help through the use of Botox and fillers.
About Botox and Fillers
At our practice, we offer both Botox and fillers to help you achieve a desired look, possibly one with fewer or less defined wrinkles. Botox works by reducing muscle movement to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our Trumbull, CT, dermatologist can also use it as a preventative measure so your face doesn't develop fine lines and wrinkles as soon or quickly.
Filler, on the other hand, fills in the space behind the wrinkles to plump up the skin, ultimately giving you a more youthful appearance.
We also use fillers to plump the lips, which can help you achieve that pouty look if you weren't born with it.
Neither option requires any downtime. And the side effects of either tend to be minimal.
Furthermore, neither treatment is permanent. You may choose to continue your results with follow-up treatments. Or, if you decide the results aren't for you, you merely let them fade away. The Botox will stop working, while your body will absorb the fillers.
Deciding the Right One for You
Neither Botox nor fillers are the best solution in every case. Several factors affect which one you should choose, such as what your desired results are. For example, fillers don't tend to provide dramatic results. Your budget will also play a role. And you should also consider how long you want the desired results to last, among other factors.
If you're unsure of which one you want, we encourage you to inform us of what you're trying to achieve. We'll ask you questions about your budget and even show you the results of previous patients so you can see what to expect.
Our dermatologist has over 25 years of keeping patients happy and has extensive training and experience helping men and women improve their facial appearances.
Dr. Patrignelli, serving Trumbull, CT, and the surrounding region, emphasizes that no two patients are the same, which is why you can expect a doctor who'll ask you questions and make sure you're heard. He wants you to have the results you expect and deserve!
