Botox and Fillers Q & A

by Tarik M. Husain, MD, FACS

What is Botox?

Botox, clinically known as botulinum toxin, is a cosmetic injection aimed at reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox injections are most commonly associated with reducing the lines in your forehead and around the eyes. But the injection can also diminish folds in the neck and dimpling in the chin, lift your smile, and soften your jawline.

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles, preventing them from contracting. You’ll notice the effects within a couple of days after Botox treatment, and the results last up to four months.

Is Botox safe?

Botox is safe. Some of Dr. Husain’s patients express concern because Botox is a toxin, but it can’t spread to other areas of your body or cause illness.

While you can resume your regular activities immediately following the procedure, Dr. Husain cautions against engaging in physical activity for at least two hours following treatment.

What are fillers?

Fillers, also called dermal fillers, are substances Dr. Husain injects into your skin to smooth it out and reduce wrinkles and creases. They can also plump your lips, enhance your cheek structure, and minimize the appearance of scars.

Whether you want to reduce wrinkles or fill in hollow cheeks, Dr. Husain offers his patients several filler options to produce their desired effects, including:

  • Belotero Balance®: bunny nose and laugh line filler
  • Radiesse®: bunny nose and laugh line filler, also used to add volume to the back of the hand
  • Restylane-L®: bunny nose, laugh line, and lip filler
  • Restylane Silk: lip filler
  • Restylane Lyft: cheek filler
  • Juvederm® Ultra XC: lip filler
  • Juvederm Voluma®: cheek filler

What results can I expect from dermal fillers?

Fillers add volume to fill in lines or plump up specific areas of the skin. They’re especially helpful during the early signs of aging to prevent the permanent creases associated with wrinkles.

Dermal fillers last up to a year depending on the filler that Dr. Husain uses for your procedure. Taking good care of your skin, including minimizing sun exposure and washing gently with soap and water daily, may help increase dermal filler longevity.
