Botox and Fillers Q & A

La Jolla Laser MedSpa

How does Botox work?

Botox® is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes facial muscles that cause wrinkles. After years of laughing, frowning, and furrowing your brow, your face shows the signs of aging. Botox takes just a few minutes to treat lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead so these signs become less visible.

A skilled aesthetic specialist at the La Jolla Laser MedSpa injects Botox into the lines and wrinkles on your forehead and the crow’s feet around your eyes so the muscles can’t contract as much. You’ll still be able to make natural facial expressions, and you’ll look like yourself, but you’ll have fewer visible lines and wrinkles.

How long does Botox last?

After treatment, you may notice a difference in the first 24-48 hours, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles continues to improve over the next few days. Results can last up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers work differently than Botox in that they plump your skin, add volume, and smooth out lines and wrinkles with an injectable gel, rather than temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. Many fillers contain hyaluronic acid — a substance your body produces naturally when you’re younger — but as you age, that production diminishes. The result is sometimes a noticeable volume loss in your facial features.

What areas do dermal fillers treat?

Different dermal fillers work to:

  • Soften lines and wrinkles on your face
  • Add volume to your lips
  • Add volume to your cheeks
  • Reduce the appearance of smile lines

Depending on the type of filler you receive, and if you have moderate or severe lines and wrinkles, the effects of dermal fillers can last a few months or a few years.

If you want to reduce the outward signs of aging, minimize lines and wrinkles, or add volume, and still have a natural appearance, Botox injections and dermal fillers may be the ideal solution. The experienced team recommends treatments that can best help you achieve your personal anti-aging goals.
