Botox and fillers are complementary treatments from your Newport Beach dermatologist

The field of aesthetic medicine has evolved quickly in the past few decades, with men and women responding favorably to the various non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation. Products such as Botox and Dysport have been regarded as “wonder drugs” for their incredible anti-aging capabilities. The truth is, each person is affected differently by biochemical changes, stress, nutrition, and the effects of the sun. We all age in our own unique way, and no single product can address the various signs of aging that develop over time. Dr. Arta Farshidi offers individualized care to patients, often designing a plan that includes both Botox and fillers for optimal results in our Newport Beach practice.

Dr. Farshidi serves each patient with a firm commitment to excellence. In our office, men and women from Newport Beach and surrounding areas can have their individual dermatological needs met because we begin with a thorough consultation visit. During this visit, the doctor listens to what you wish to achieve with dermatological treatment, your skin concerns, and your background. She will honestly discuss what can and cannot be achieved with cosmetic dermatological treatments so that you may choose how you wish to proceed with your care. This is one of the aspects of care that our patients report finding most pleasant.

In many cases, patients are able to achieve the most favorable results with a combination of products, such as Botox and dermal fillers. Each serves the skin in unique ways, culminating in true rejuvenation.

In anti-aging treatment, dermal fillers are used to restore volume where it has been lost. Fillers are ideal for use on the lower part of the face, including around the mouth and nose. Treatment with the appropriate dermal filler will diminish the look of lines and folds that often occur as skin loses its elasticity.

Botox is a neuromodulator and, as such, will have a different effect on the skin than a dermal filler does. Botox does not restore volume; it relaxes the muscles that lie under the skin. The muscles on the face are used constantly every day. After years, these muscles develop a memory, become toned, and they stand out more than they should. This development of the underlying muscles is, in part, what leads to lines on the forehead and around the eyes. When we relax these muscles with precise injections of Botox, the skin over them smooths out, resulting in a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

Dr. Arta Farshidi has extensive experience and a listening ear that helps her serve patients with excellence. Contact our Newport Beach office today to learn more, or to schedule your consultation.
