Botox and Dermal Fillers Q & A

What does Botox correct?

Botox® is a neuromodulator that temporarily lessens the appearance of moderate and severe wrinkles in the following areas:

  • Frown lines between your brows
  • Wrinkles around your eyes (crow’s-feet)
  • Forehead lines

Botox works by relaxing the muscles that, when they contract, form the lines and wrinkles in your skin.

SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS also offers Dysport®, which contains abobotulinumtoxinA, to relax the wrinkle-causing muscles around your eyes, brows, and forehead.

Ask the specialist team how Botox can also be used to reduce:

  • Clenching jaw and grinding teeth
  • Squared jawline
  • Migraine headaches
  • Excessive sweating for underarms and palms

What are dermal filler

Over time, the skin of the face stretches as it loses its elasticity and plumpness. This makes fine lines and wrinkles more apparent and reduces facial volume, making people look older.

Fortunately, dermal fillers can be injected under the skin to fill out some of that facial volume. Some of the ways dermal fillers can transform the face include:

  • Reducing and softening wrinkles, fine lines, and other facial creases
  • Giving the face a fullness that makes the patient look more youthful
  • Plumping thinning lips
  • Enhancing desired facial contours (e.g. cheek contours)
  • Minimizing the appearance of recessed scars or other unwanted facial contours

At SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS, the team offers the following dermal fillers:

  • Juvéderm®
  • Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, & Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Restylane®
    • Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne

Which injectable is right for me?

Botox and fillers work best in combination since they tackle different halves of your face. Botox is great for the upper half, reducing the moderate to severe lines around your eyes and forehead.

Dermal fillers go to work on the lower half of your face, where volume loss is more of an issue when it comes to aging.

Between the two, you can look years younger after just one visit since the results are almost immediate. (It may take Botox 3-7 days to completely relax your muscle.)

How long do results last?

Botox and Dysport last 3-6 months, while dermal fillers last 6-24 months. In both cases, at the first signs of redeveloping wrinkles or volume loss, you can simply get back to SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS for another treatment.
