Botox and Fillers Q&A
What are Botox® and fillers?
Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables designed to minimize the effects of the natural aging process. Though these terms are often used simultaneously, they’re actually two different products.
Botox is an injectable manufactured by Allergan. It’s ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that form due to repetitive facial motions like smiling and frowning. If you have forehead wrinkles, 11’s (wrinkles between your eyes), or crow’s feet, Botox can safely minimize their appearance.
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable used to restore lost facial volume. Your body stops producing elastin and collagen due to the natural aging process. These two proteins help keep your skin plump, wrinkle-free, and supple.
There are several types of dermal fillers available. The team at Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi offers Radiesse® manufactured by Merz and Volbella™, Vollure™, and Voluma™ manufactured by Juvederm®.
Can I benefit from Botox and fillers?
To determine if you’re a good candidate for Botox and fillers, the team at Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi physically examines your face, reviews your medical history, and asks about your lifestyle and goals for treatment.
Let the team know if you have any allergies or if you take any prescription medications or supplements regularly. The information you provide helps guide treatment and can lower your risk of potential side-effects.
After gathering the necessary details, the team can make recommendations that align with your budget and needs.
Do Botox and fillers provide permanent results?
Botox and fillers don’t provide permanent results, but they can last for between four and six months at a time. Once wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet start reforming on the surface of your face, it’s time to schedule a follow-up appointment.
What other types of skin treatment are offered?
Botox and fillers are incredibly effective, but they can’t address every skin imperfection. If you have sun spots, acne scars, or loose skin, the team might recommend a different type of cosmetic skin treatment.
Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi offers a variety of cosmetic treatments, including:
- Collagen fillers
- Skin tightening
- CO2 laser
- Chemical peels
- OxyGeneo facials
- ZO® skincare products
No matter your individual needs, the team will work with you to achieve your desired results safely and effectively.
