Facelift Vs. Botox

Start to feel like your younger self once again and take aging into your own hands. With so many injectables and surgical options to help give people back their youthful appearance, it can sometimes seem overwhelming to decide on a suitable option for both you and your wallet. As two of the most popular cosmetic procedures available on the cosmetic surgery market, facelift and Botox are both ideal ways to make you look younger. Read on to learn more about the differences.

Facelift
faceliftAs a more expensive and permanent option to anti-aging, facelifts are extremely effective at delivering patients with the best results possible. Due to its fairly invasive nature, facelifts require patients to be under anesthesia during the entire surgical process. By making small incisions around the hairline, the surgeon is able to properly access the areas under the skin in order to lift and tighten any loose skin. Once the skin has been tightened, the incision site will then be stitched up and you will be sent for surgery.

The results of a facelift procedure are incomparable to most procedures— not only can you correct things like fine lines and wrinkles, but you can also correct the skins natural sagging ability that occurs over time.

Botox
As the most popular injectable available on the market, Botox is popular among males and females in a variety of social circles. By injecting Botox into the facial muscles around the forehead and eyes, Botox essentially paralyzes the muscles which in turn causes your skin to appear wrinkle free. Depending on how well your body reacts to the Botox and depending on the severity of your wrinkles, you will likely have to have Botox redone every 3-6 months.

There are many benefits to both facelifts and Botox. Botox is more affordable but facelifts are more permanent. If you are considering one of these anti-aging options, contact our office today and one of our representatives will help answer any questions that you may have.
