Which Filler Is Right for You?
Interested in overhauling your aesthetic but not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Read on to get straight-from-the-expert advice on how to choose which filler is right for you.

It’s 2022. You now have more options than ever when it comes to cosmetic treatments. But the bad news is… you have more options than ever. We understand if wading through these options is overwhelming — and we’re here to give a helping hand. 

At Becky Does Botox, Rebecca White, MBA, MSN, RN and our team make choosing a filler easier than choosing where you want to go to dinner.

First things first

Before we recommend a filler, we begin by conducting a thorough review of your medical history, examining your skin, and discussing your treatment goals with you. From there, Becky decides which course of action will get you the best results. 

Sometimes, fillers are all you need to address your concerns; other times, you may benefit from a combination of fillers and other cosmetic injectables, such as Botox®

Choosing a filler

Now comes the tricky part: choosing the best filler for you. Fortunately, you don’t have to navigate the ins and outs of fillers alone, with Becky and our experienced staff standing by to help you make the best decision. 

At Becky Does Botox, we offer a wide range of fillers that address virtually every cosmetic concern. Our most popular filler is Sculptra®. Sculptra harnesses the power of a natural substance called poly-L-lactic acid to restore volume to sunken areas of your face and body. It also stimulates your skin’s natural ability to regenerate cells and produce collagen. 

We recommend Sculptra if you’re looking to:

  • Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Improve your facial contours
  • Plump nasolabial folds
  • Restore facial volume
  • Boost skin health
  • Eliminate sagging skin

With a simple injection, we can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin, reverse the signs of aging, and do it all without pain, surgery, or downtime. 

Our other fillers

In addition to Sculptra, we also offer the full lineup of JUVÉDERM® products, including the following:

  • Voluma® for age-related loss in your cheeks and chins
  • Vollure® for moderate to wrinkles and folds
  • Volbella® for lip augmentation, line correction, and under-eye hollows
  • Ultra XC for lip augmentation

But we don’t stop there. Becky Does Botox also carries Revanesse® Versa™+, which is best if you’re bothered by wrinkles and facial folds. Both the JUVÉDERM and Versa products address cosmetic concerns with hyaluronic acid — a substance found in your skin that helps it maintain its shape and retain moisture. 

Having a hard time choosing? You may not have to. We often use a combination of fillers to give you the best results possible. 

What to expect

During your treatment, you’re completely comfortable and relaxed, reclining in a chair. Becky begins by numbing the treatment area before carefully injecting Sculptra into your skin. Almost immediately, Sculptra adds volume, encourages cell growth, and gives you an overall youthful glow. 

Each injection takes one or two minutes, so it’s possible for you to have a treatment over your lunch hour. Bonus: Once we’re done, you can get right back to your normal routine. Though you may feel a little sore at the injection site, you don’t need to spend any time in recovery. Any side effects are mild and can be managed conservatively with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers. 

Depending on your needs, we may recommend that you receive a few injections spaced apart over several months. 

How to get the most out of your fillers

Sculptra injections can last up to two years, or longer in some cases, especially if you take good care of your skin. Here are a few rules of thumb to follow if you want to get the most out of your fillers.

Stick to a skin care routine

We’re not talking about splashing some water on your face before bed. We’re talking about a diligent routine focused on supporting the fillers’ work. We recommend investing in products that keep your skin moisturized and fortified. 

Consider investing in retinoids and hyaluronic acid; both help your skin produce collagen and encourage healthy cell growth. Not sure where to start? We can point you in the direction of our favorite products.

Protect your skin

Speaking of your skin care routine, make sure it includes a high-quality sunscreen. UV rays from the sun quickly deplete your stores of collagen and elastin and can reverse the effects of your fillers. 

Get healthy

Healthy habits that support your overall health (think sleep, hydration, and a balanced diet) are all good for your skin and can help you maintain your treatment results for the long haul.
