Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections that address the visible signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines, without surgery or downtime.

As you get older, the facial tissue under your skin thins out, allowing the muscles to work closer to the skin, creating lines and creases. Additionally, the fat stores under your skin decrease, causing your normally taut and plump skin to sag.

With Botox and fillers, the aesthetic experts at IYA Medical restore your youthful look with a few injections and without downtime. 

How does Botox work?

Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. As a neuromodulator, it works by blocking the communication between the nerve and tiny facial muscles that cause your expression lines. 

By halting communication, Botox allows the muscles under your skin to relax. After your injections, your overlying skin smooths out, resulting in a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

The aesthetic experts at IYA Medical use two neuromodulators:

BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the following areas.

  • Forehead
  • Around your eyes (crow’s feet)
  • In-between your eyebrows (frown lines)

Dysport® 

Dysport is FDA-approved to temporarily minimize the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. 

Though Botox Cosmetic and Dysport work in the same manner, they’re not interchangeable and have distinct dosing differences.

How do fillers work?

Fillers are cosmetic injections that restore volume and fullness to your face to:

  • Correct moderate to severe wrinkles
  • Plump lips
  • Enhance facial contours
  • Restore a more youthful appearance

The aesthetic experts at IYA Medical offer the Juvéderm® and Restylane® line of dermal fillers.

How do I know if Botox and filler injections are best for me?

The aesthetic experts at IYA Medical work closely with you to determine the cosmetic injections best suited to help you achieve your beauty goals. In some cases, they may recommend both Botox and fillers.

Your provider performs your injections at the office, and you should see an immediate improvement in your look after your filler injections and a reduction in your lines and wrinkles within 24-48 hours after Botox or Dysport. 

You should be able to resume most of your usual activities following your treatments. However, your provider may ask that you delay any strenuous activity for up to 24 hours.
