Facelift Vs Botox: How to Tell Which Option Is Right for You
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
Having perfectly youthful skin in your 40s, 50’s, and 60’s isn’t something that happens to most people unless they’ve had a little bit of help from a plastic surgeon like Dr. Paul A. Watterson. If your self-esteem has started to suffer because of the fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes, or just across your face, you may be wondering what options there are. Two of the most popular treatment options that we recommend to patients are a surgical facelift or Botox. But, how can you decide which option will give you the best results?
If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment, but you want real results, then Botox may be the right thing for you. Also, if you feel like you have some fine lines and wrinkles but they’re not deep enough to consider surgery, then Botox may also be something worth considering. As an injectable, Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles on the forehead and around the eyes to help give patients, like you, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and a more youthful look.
If you are looking for a procedure that’s longer lasting, then a facelift may be for you. Unlike Botox that only helps to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead and around the eyes, a facelift can be used to tighten skin across the entire face. During a facelift, Dr. Watterson will make incisions typically across the hairline and behind the ears. Once the incisions have been made, he will lift and tighten the skin while also removing excess skin to give you a more youthful look.
The best way for you to determine which of these options, or any other options, are right for you is to schedule a consultation appointment with us at our Draper office. Call us today at 801 571 2020.
