Botox & Fillers Q & A.
What is Botox?
To help relax the muscles in your face, Dr. Moammar uses the medical form of the Botulinum Toxin, a protein found in a bacteria that can cause paralysis. When purified for medical and aesthetic purposes, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles in your face and smoothes the lines and wrinkles.
What are fillers?
While Botox suspends the nerve signals to your facial muscles, fillers work to plump your skin. Fillers add volume to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and folds. Commonly used fillers are RestylaneⓇ, RadiesseⓇ, and JuvedermⓇ.
Where do fillers work best?
Fillers are popular because they work well and give almost instant results. The best uses of fillers are:
- Lifts eyebrows
- Minimizes under-eye circles
- Erases smile lines
- Diminishes worry lines
- Plumps lips
- Fills in cheekbones
- Erases marionette lines
Results from fillers last anywhere from 6-18 months. Depending on which filler Dr. Moammar uses on your trouble areas, he details what you will experience in the coming months so you know exactly what to expect.
Am I a candidate for Botox or fillers?
Almost anyone who wants to firm up their skin, minimize the appearance of fine lines, and reduce wrinkles is a candidate for injectables like Botox and fillers. Dr. Moammar meets with you to evaluate your skin and determine if you’ll benefit from these treatments. If you’re looking for dramatic changes, Botox and fillers won’t be right for you. Instead, Dr. Moammar may recommend more aggressive treatments like facelift or surgical procedures.
Does it hurt to get Botox or fillers?
While Dr. Moammar does inject BOTOX and fillers with a needle, he numbs the area thoroughly to make you as comfortable as possible. With years of experience doing delicate aesthetic procedures, he works with skill and precision to eliminate your discomfort. Most patients tolerate the quick procedure extremely well and report feeling only a slight pinch.
