Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a muscle relaxer with many uses, both medical and cosmetic. Its most popular use is reducing the lines and wrinkles that appear on your face as you age, and it does so without making you look robotic or expressionless afterward.

BOTOX is injectable. The active ingredient is a toxin that is found in nature called botulinum toxin, but it’s perfectly safe when it is used correctly.

What are fillers?

Like BOTOX, fillers can be used to reduce signs of aging, like wrinkles and lines. They can also give you plumper lips or fuller cheeks whether they’ve lost vivacity with age or you simply want to look different.

Fillers are also injectable, but they don’t use the same toxin as BOTOX. There are several types of fillers that you can choose from depending on your goals and preferences, including hyaluronic acid and collagen.

What can BOTOX do?

BOTOX boasts a long list of uses. Cosmetic features that BOTOX can fix or improve include:

  • Wrinkles between your eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

In addition, BOTOX can be used to treat an overactive bladder, chronic migraines, and excessive sweating under your arms.

What can fillers do?

Fillers have many cosmetic uses that are approved by the FDA. While the purpose of all fillers is cosmetic, you can use it to improve your appearance after losing volume in your face after a disease like HIV. Common purposes for fillers include:

  • Volumizing cheeks
  • Plumping lips
  • Eliminating lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing acne scars
  • Flattening the divot between your lips and nose (nasolabial folds)
  • Reducing smile lines

If you have other scars or wrinkles, your provider at La Belle Medical Spa can determine if a filler is an option for you.

What are the risks of getting BOTOX or fillers?

When administered correctly by a trained professional, there is little risk of getting an infection or injury from a BOTOX or filler injection. However, you might experience some bruising that should disappear a few days after your injection. If you experience more serious side effects, such as fatigue, headaches, or a rash, contact La Belle Medical Spa immediately.

If you’re concerned about risks and side effects, Dr. Alireza Mahmoudieh can discuss them further with you during your consultation.
