Boton and Filler Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment that temporarily relaxes forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, lines between your eyebrows, and frown lines. It requires no anesthesia or surgery.
Botox is made from a neurotoxin that limits certain facial muscles for a period of time. You can still make facial expressions, but the targeted muscles in your face are partially paralyzed, which stops them from tugging at your skin and causing wrinkles.
Your doctor at South Central Family Practice Clinic administers Botox with very small needles, causing little discomfort or pain. With just a few injections, your skin looks smoother.
The treatment lasts about four months. As an experienced doctor who regularly administers Botox, Dr. Bailon can talk to you about how often you might want treatments.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers help replace volume in your face that you might’ve lost due to age or weight loss. The treatments are injectable and made of a synthetic substance that your skin produces naturally called hyaluronic acid.
At South Central Family Practice Clinic, Dr. Bailon uses JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® fillers, which are long-lasting, nonsurgical options to give your face a smooth look by plumping up certain targeted areas.
Fillers can help reduce the signs of aging in your:
- Lips Creases or lines above your lips
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
Dermal fillers can also add plumpness to the back of your hands, which is an area that can show age, as well.
Since there is varying thickness with dermal fillers’ formulations, you and your doctor at South Central Family Practice Clinic should talk about the best way to achieve your aesthetic goals and the look you want.
Are Botox and dermal fillers safe?
Botox and dermal fillers are very safe when performed by an experienced doctor like Dr. Bailon at South Central Family Practice Clinic. It’s important to ask your doctor any questions you might have during your consultation so that you feel as comfortable as possible.
