Botox and Fillers Q&A
What is Botox?
Botox is a purified toxin that temporarily eases the muscle movements that cause lines and creases to form on your face. Botox injections can soften horizontal forehead furrows, crow’s feet around your eyes, and frown lines between your brows.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers erase mild-to-moderate lines, wrinkles, and hollow contours that occur with aging. As your skin matures, you produce less of the compounds that plump, hydrate, and soften your skin’s appearance. Dermal fillers restore hyaluronic acid – a natural skin compound – to create a more youthful look.
What skin concerns can Botox and fillers injections address?
Botox and fillers can address a number of skin concerns associated with aging. These include:
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Forehead furrows
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Hollow contours in the cheeks
- Thinning lips
- Vertical lines around the lips
If you’d like to smooth out your complexion, discuss Botox and filler treatment with Dr. Giraldo. Dermal fillers come in different formulas, each of which is best at addressing a specific skin complaint. After understanding your aesthetic goals, Dr. Giraldo can help create a customized treatment plan for you.
Do Botox and filler injections hurt?
Injections of Botox and fillers do involve a needle, so you’ll feel a pinch and some sensation as the product enters your skin. The treatments are quick, however, and most people tolerate them quite well. Some formulations include lidocaine to ease any discomfort. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to Dr. Giraldo about using a topical anesthetic prior to treatment.
How long do Botox and dermal filler results last?
Dermal fillers are a temporary solution to lines, wrinkles, and other aging skin concerns. Exactly how long the effects last depend on the type of filler used, the area treated, and your body’s metabolism. On average, the results from dermal fillers last six to 18 months. To maintain your new look, you should get additional treatments on a regular basis. Talk to Dr. Giraldo to set up a regular schedule of dermal filler injections.
Botox relaxes wrinkles and lines for three to four months. Again, you can set up a schedule of repeated treatments to maintain your look and consult Dr. Giraldo on how often you need them to achieve your aesthetic goals.
