Posted in Uncategorized | December 13, 2021

It can be all too easy to forget yourself during the holidays. You may become an afterthought as you think about how to give back to those you love.

Although taking care of others is admirable, you can’t forget about yourself in the process. Prioritizing self-care this holiday will undoubtedly pay off well into the new year.

What better way to gift yourself this holiday season than with Botox and fillers? You’ll look and feel younger while giving yourself the gift of loving what you see in the mirror. Keep reading to find out why Botox and fillers can make this the most wonderful season of the year!

Botox is a popular treatment used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. It helps lift your eyebrows and smooth your forehead.

Botox also decreases the appearance of frown lines on the eyebrows and crow’s feet around your eyes. By getting Botox, you’ll continue to look like you, but with less noticeable lines on your face.


Dermal fillers are injectables to enhance your facial beauty and appearance while correcting issues like softening creases around your nose and mouth, smoothing out gaunt cheeks, or plumping up thin lips.

Fillers can restore volume in the face and diminish facial lines. Doing this will help you look and feel younger. The medical professionals at Specialty Care Institute will help you determine which fillers are suitable for you.

Some of the benefits of Botox and fillers include the following:

They are Not Permanent

Unlike having a facelift or another cosmetic procedure, Botox and fillers are not permanent. If you decide that these treatments are not for you, they will get reabsorbed into your skin.

Choosing not to repeat the treatments will not worsen your wrinkles. Botox usually lasts about 3 to 5 months, while fillers can last for 6 to 18 months. After this point, you’ll look the same way you did before you had Botox or fillers.

Get Rid of Lines and Wrinkles

Wrinkles are folds in your skin that form when the muscles beneath them contract. You’ll find wrinkles around your nose, around your mouth, and the side of your eyes.

When a muscle is injected with small doses of Botox, it stops contracting and causes your lines and wrinkles to relax and smooth out. With fillers, they are directly injected under wrinkles to soften their appearance.

Beyond filling wrinkles and treating facial lines, hyaluronic acid fillers also stimulate collagen production, helping to strengthen your skin.

High Satisfaction Rate

Fillers and Botox are two of the most popular cosmetic procedures patients have with high satisfaction rates. Over 95 percent of patients are satisfied with the results from their Botox treatments.

Most started seeing improvement almost immediately after having Botox. Recent studies indicate that patients who had fillers were 92% satisfied with how their faces looked after fillers.

Many patients who have Botox and fillers choose to have them again, leading to ongoing improvement in the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and other trouble areas.

No Downtime

When you choose Botox or fillers, you won’t need to put your life on hold. They’re not only relatively painless, but they also come with almost no downtime.

You won’t have to worry about a long, consuming recovery. Instead, you’ll have no problem at all getting back to your everyday activities right after having Botox or fillers.

Fast Results

Expect to see the effects of Botox injections in as little as 3 to 4 days after your appointment. Most patients see a visible difference right after having fillers. It can take as long as three to four weeks after injections before you’ll see the full effect after having fillers. 

Imagine looking rejuvenated, well-rested and younger in only a few days. With such a quick turnaround time, this makes fillers and Botox the ideal treatment to get just before holiday parties kick off, and you want to look your best.

With other cosmetic procedures, you may spend hours at your doctor’s office, along with a long, consuming recovery. You may also need to take time off from work to recover.

Around the holidays, this is the last thing you need to deal with. The fantastic thing about Botox and fillers is their convenience. Fillers usually take about 5 to 30 minutes to inject per area, while Botox treatment takes an average of 15 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites.

If your doctor administers Botox or fillers in the middle of the day, you’ll still have the time and energy you need to finish your holiday shopping. With so much to do during this time of year, anything that makes things easier is always an advantage!

They’re Very Safe

Botox and fillers are safe when administered correctly by a licensed and experienced medical professional. At the Specialty Care Institute, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible care.

You’ll Look Natural

Many people avoid Botox and fillers out of fear of looking frozen or unnatural. If you’re afraid that you won’t be able to move your face or express your face, you don’t have to be.

When a medical professional administers dermal fillers and Botox, they look natural. Dermal fillers help increase the volume in your skin, helping to fill it out naturally.

Choosing to have fillers will accentuate your features instead of making you look drastically different. Botox temporarily freezes muscles in your face, helping you look more natural and relaxed with fewer wrinkles. Both cosmetic treatments will leave everyone amazed at how good you look, and they’ll never know unless you choose to tell them.
