Botox and Fillers Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that uses a highly purified protein. This treatment works by relaxing some of the muscles that cause fine lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin.
What are dermal fillers?
A dermal filler is an alternative to Botox that can be used to treat lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin. Dr. Slaughter injects the dermal filler into the skin to fill in areas that are loose or sagging. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and adds volume to the skin.
How long do the results last?
The results of Botox and dermal fillers vary. In general, the results of cosmetic treatments can last from 6 months to 2 years. Dr. Slaughter can give patients more detail about the expected results of treatment.
Who is a good candidate for Botox and dermal fillers?
Most patients who want to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles are good candidates for Botox and/or treatment with dermal fillers. However, these options aren’t appropriate for patients who want to change their appearance dramatically. Patients who want more dramatic results may need a facelift or other surgical procedure.
Is treatment painful?
Treatment with Botox and/or dermal fillers isn’t particularly painful. Most patients report feeling only a small pinch during injections. In addition, Dr. Slaughter can provide topical anesthetic to patients who are concerned about pain during treatment.
What are the side effects of Botox and dermal fillers?
Side effects of Botox and dermal fillers are usually mild. However, women who undergo these treatments may notice pain, redness, or swelling near the injection site. In rare cases, more serious side effects may occur, but most women respond well to Botox and dermal fillers.
How much do Botox and dermal fillers cost?
The cost of treatment with Botox or dermal fillers varies based on the size of the treatment area and other factors. In most cases, these treatments aren’t covered by insurance. Patients can request a detailed estimate of their treatment expenses from The Healthy Woman before scheduling treatment.
