Botox and Fillers... Are They Worth it?

Botox and Fillers... Are They Worth it?

While Botox and fillers are quite common, and certainly nothing to be ashamed of, there are plenty of things about these procedures that many people wished they had known sooner.

Here are a few things you may not have known about Botox and fillers, and our personal recommendations for how to combat wrinkles and fine lines in a healthy way.

Botox Does not Actually Get Rid of Wrinkles

Botox will not eliminate fine lines that are on your resting face. Rather, it will “freeze” certain facial muscles where you may be prone to fine lines.

That means Botox is more preventative than restorative.

It controls the muscles on your face so that they do not deepen wrinkles when you make facial expressions. But as for lines that appear naturally when your face is still, there isn’t much that botox can do.

Look instead to something like this Fièra Apple Stem Cell Cream which utilizes apple stem cells to rejuvenate your skin, making it more plump and fresh.

Your Body Will Absorb Botox Over Time

You may already know that botox is temporary, but you may not have realized that the reason for that is that everything injected into your face will be absorbed by your body within 3-4 months.

That’s concerning when you consider that Botox’s full name is the Botulinum Toxin, a toxin that can cause paralysis, and, if the bacteria travels by water, a serious disease in humans called botulism that attacks the nerves.

That’s why many women choose to go natural, and instead stick to products that keep your skin looking fresh without exposing it to any harmful toxins or materials.

For example, we recommend using makeup that is specifically formulated for people with wrinkles. The Fièra Luxury Concealer is one of the only concealers like it on the market, because it is made for women in their 40s and beyond, and is perfect for mature or aging skin.

When you finally put on some makeup that was truly made for you, you may suddenly notice that you don’t need to change much about your skin at all, you just needed cosmetics that were actually catered to your age group.

Fillers Stay Under Your Skin and Move Around Your Face

Have you ever seen lip injections that look like duck lips? That might not have been done on purpose.

Many people, both young and old, have filler injected under their skin for a more plump look. This is commonly used in the lips, the jawline, the nose, and it is also used to lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

Fillers usually bond with the tissue in your face, but sometimes, people notice in the first few days after injections that the filler has begun to move.

More serious problems have arisen in particular cases with people who notice their filler has congealed into a bump under their skin. Filler can even potentially block blood vessels.

Botox and Fillers Can Age Your Skin Faster

The skin on your face is quite sensitive. Sometimes when you use Botox for preventative care, it freezes some muscles your face uses for expression.

Then, your face may overcompensate by using other muscles more than normal, causing lines where there were none before.

Overall, this creates an older look that may require even more filler and Botox to fight against, potentially causing a dangerous cycle that may cause you to get more Botox than you ever hoped for or intended in the first place.

Most Dermatologists Recommend Healthy Skincare Like Creams and Serums Rather Than Botox and Fillers

To take care of your skin, and to prevent and treat wrinkles, there is a more simple solution than botox and fillers.

In fact, most doctors suggest an effective skincare routine, with products made from all-natural ingredients.

Fièra products are made for mature women. Our makeup does not settle into wrinkles, and our serums and creams offer a fabulous alternative for women who want to care for their skin in a healthy and natural way.
