Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is one of the most popular and well-known treatments for fine lines. While it’s natural to develop wrinkles and fine lines and lose collagen fibers in your skin as you age, you might prefer the way your face looks with smoother skin. 

Botox can’t turn back the clock, but it can diminish your most prominent fine facial lines for months at a time. 

The active ingredient in Botox is a purified form of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. When injected, the toxin affects your nerves’ ability to communicate with your muscles. 

This process relieves some major fine lines and wrinkles, like crow’s feet and frown lines, because they form over time when your facial muscles flex.  

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are another type of cosmetic injectable, but they’re not the same as Botox. The team at SculptMD injects fillers beneath your skin to add volume. They do this strategically to make you look more youthful and avoid a blown-up or overdone appearance. 

Some of the many changes you can make with dermal fillers include:

  • Plump your lips
  • Reshape or define your lips
  • Plump your cheeks
  • Diminish indented scars
  • Fill in deep wrinkles
  • Diminish hollow areas under your eyes

Your provider at SculptMD helps you design the perfect treatment plan to address each of your concerns. 

Depending on the type of dermal filler used, the results last between six months and two years. Your body naturally absorbs the filler and you can get a round of maintenance injections when your results start to fade. 

Am I a good candidate for Botox or fillers?

Cosmetic injectables like Botox and fillers are a favorable treatment for many men and women who want to look more youthful. They’re minimally invasive and low risk for healthy individuals. 

You should sit down for a consultation with the team at SculptMD before you commit to either treatment to make sure it’s the best choice for you. You might be a candidate for Botox, fillers, or both under these conditions:

  • You’re over 18
  • You’re unhappy with your age-related appearance changes
  • Your skin is clear of infections and breakouts
  • You have a realistic idea of the results
  • You take good care of your skin

If injectables like Botox or fillers aren’t the best way to reach the results you want, the team at SculptMD can recommend other, more suitable options for treatment.
