Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into a part of a facial muscle. It is used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow's feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botox is a quick, 10-15 minute procedure that requires no recovery or downtime. The results are fully noticeable in 10-14 days and last for approximately 3 months. When Botox is administered by an experienced aesthetician, you will not lose the ability to show expressions. The procedure should be performed by a licensed and trained aesthetic provider who has an expertise in facial anatomy.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are gel products used to correct the appearance of static lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers fill in the skin depression and “plump up” the line. Dermal fillers are also used to add volume to the lips, cheeks or other areas. In addition to filling in wrinkles, fillers may also help the skin retain moisture so it naturally appears plumper and firmer, and they also promote the production of collagen to help skin continue to appear firmer and more resilient over time. Juvederm is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel for the cheek area. It helps restore a more youthful and natural profile for up to two years with optimal treatment. Juvederm contains a modified hyaluronic acid made from naturally occurring complex sugar. With minimal downtime, you will look refreshed and rejuvenated following treatment. Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients.
How are Botox and cosmetic fillers administered?
Both Botox and dermal fillers are injected into the skin or subdermal muscle. Botox uses very fine needles so discomfort is reduced while dermal fillers are often applied using a topical anesthetic to numb the area first. Patients should avoid rubbing the area to prevent spreading Botox or filler materials to other areas of the face, which can diminish the final effect.
