Botox® and Injectable Fillers
Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center offers Botox® and injectable fillers to the residents of Pasadena, CA. We also service Los Angeles, CA. Botox® and injectable fillers are effective methods for correcting fine lines and wrinkles on your face, but these techniques work in different ways. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles, and is used to target the lines around your eyes and on your forehead. Injectable fillers work by increasing the volume under your skin, and the variety of available fillers allows Dr. Rigor to correct lines, wrinkles and creases in several areas of your face. Injectable fillers are also used by Dr. Rigor to enhance your lips and cheek bones.
How do I know if I should have Botox® or injectable fillers to correct the fine lines and wrinkles on my face?
Dr. Rigor has extensive experience with using Botox® and injectable fillers for his patients in Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA. This experience allows him to effectively determine the best treatment plan for your needs. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Rigor evaluates your skin, including the location and depth of your fine lines and wrinkles. Based on his findings, he determines the best product for your specific case.
How does Dr. Rigor use Botox® to correct my facial lines?
As a result of stress, or when you frown, you contract the muscles around your eyes and on your forehead. Lines and creases form as the muscles contract. Dr. Rigor uses Botox® to target these muscles. The Botox® injection weakens the muscles, and the fine lines and wrinkles fade and disappear. Another benefit of Botox® is that, over time, you learn to not contract these muscles, and this prevents the wrinkles from deepening.
I’m considering injectable fillers from Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center. What types of skin conditions can be corrected with injectable fillers?
Dr. Rigor uses several injectable fillers to correct fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. The type of injectable filler depends on your individual case since injectable fillers have different thicknesses and longevity. Injectable fillers are used for a variety of skin corrections, including correcting acne scars, enhancing cheek bones and lips and correcting dark circles under your eyes.
