Botox & Fillers

As we age, our skin transforms, with wrinkles and fine lines often becoming prominent reminders of the passage of time. However, advancements in cosmetic dermatology, particularly at HOTT Aesthetics, offer promising solutions. Botox and fillers are among these revolutionary treatments, specifically designed to address dynamic wrinkles and the thinning of collagen beneath the skin’s surface.

Symptoms: Recognizing the Early Signs

  • Appearance of lines around the eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • Fine lines due to reduced collagen production
  • Visible frown lines on the forehead

    Why Botox and Fillers are Needed

    • The Impact of Dynamic Wrinkles: Over time, repetitive facial expressions like smiling, laughing, and squinting lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles, unlike others, are not due to the skin’s passive aging but result from muscle activity beneath the skin.
    • Collagen Depletion: Collagen, a natural protein responsible for skin elasticity, diminishes with age. This depletion results in the skin losing its youthful plumpness and the emergence of fine lines.
    • Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: Beyond physiological reasons, Botox and fillers offer a renewed sense of confidence. Smoothing out wrinkles and rejuvenating the face can have profound effects on one’s self-esteem and overall well-being.

    Delving into the Treatment Process

    • Consultation: Each treatment journey at HOTT Aesthetics starts with a comprehensive consultation where experts like Dr. Morgan Hott or one of our experienced providers assess the patient’s needs and desired outcomes.
    • Understanding Muscle Activity: During facial expressions, nerves release acetylcholine, causing muscle contraction. This is the primary contributor to dynamic wrinkles.
    • Application of Botox®: Botox® works by targeting these muscle activities. Binding to acetylcholine receptors blocks nerve signals, reducing the muscle’s ability to contract, thereby softening and relaxing wrinkles.
