Question: Will I experience more wrinkle reduction from a true facelift or from Botox injections?
Answer: It really depends on what area of the face you are describing as to whether or not a facelift will be better than Botox for wrinkle reduction. When I personally think of a facelift, I really think of a treatment that is improving upon laxity of the face, such as areas of jowling and laxity under the chin. In the case of Botox, I am treating hyperdynamic muscles, or muscles that are overly active, creating deep wrinkles. So, in essence, these two treatments can actually complement one another since one can be used for the treatment of facial laxity while the other is used for hyperdynamic muscles.
