Botox/Fillers Q&A

What is Botox®?

Patient getting botox/filler

Botox is the most-used nonsurgical treatment worldwide to temporarily reduce the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. This safe and effective medication is formulated from a carefully controlled amount of Clostridium botulinum, also called C. botulinum.

When injected into facial muscles, Botox restricts those muscles from their full range of motion. You’ll still be able to make normal facial expressions, but the treated muscles won’t be able to pull your skin into wrinkles and folds.

Treatments require several injections for each treatment area, but the entire process takes just moments to complete. Your results will develop within 24-48 hours and last around four months. At that point, you’ll begin to see your lines and wrinkles slowly returning and can decide whether to schedule another round of injections.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers replace or improve facial volume. You can choose from many different formulations, each designed for use in specific areas of the face. Dermal fillers smooth lines and wrinkles and refine the contours of your face.

The areas where dermal fillers are used include:

  • Cheeks or mid-face
  • Lines running from the corners of your mouth to your chin (marionette lines)
  • Lines running from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial lines)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lips and lip margins
  • Beneath your eyes

Dermatologists also use dermal fillers to plump and smooth the skin on the backs of your hands. Most dermal fillers use synthetic hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally.

What is a liquid face-lift?

A liquid face-lift is a term used to describe a combination of injectable treatments used to refine the appearance and contours of your face. It’s an excellent choice for those who want a more youthful and well-rested appearance without the risks and recovery time of plastic surgery.

In skilled practitioners' hands, like those at RescueMD, a liquid face-lift can improve your appearance without creating an overdone look. Since no two people share the same facial appearance, no two liquid face-lifts should be the same.

Administering aesthetic injectables requires an artist’s approach combined with a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the human face. If you’d like more information about injectables or liquid face-lifts, call the office today to book a consultation or schedule online at your earliest convenience.
