Botox & Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is used in cosmetic medicine to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Small amounts of Clostridium botulinum are injected into specific muscles of the face to relax the muscles and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

How can Botox make me look younger?

Wrinkles form on your face as part of the natural aging process. The facial movements and expressions you make most often result in fine lines and wrinkles near the overworked muscles. 

These wrinkles can contribute to a tired, older-looking face. 

Botox injections block signals between the muscles and nerves, preventing the muscle from contracting. The lack of contraction relaxes wrinkles and makes them less visible, giving you a younger-looking appearance. 

Botox results last three months or more. Afterward, you can schedule follow-up injections with the team at VitalityMDs.

What are fillers?

Fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid that provide volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies to hydrate skin and cushion joints, and it helps reduce the physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, thinning lips, or facial volume loss. 

Your provider at VitalityMDs creates a personalized filler treatment strategy to meet your aesthetic goals.

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile; it may also be used to destroy stubborn bra fat. 

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You don’t want to have surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
 

How can fillers improve my appearance?

The team at VitalityMDs helps you choose an appropriate filler based on your needs and cosmetic goals. Fillers offer the following appearance improvements:

  • Reduced facial wrinkles 
  • Reduced appearance of lines around your lips
  • Added volume or enhanced lip shape
  • Added volume to cheeks
  • A symmetrical facial appearance 

To achieve full results, you may need multiple filler injections. Filler results last for six months to over a year.

What is the difference between Botox and fillers?

While both Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections, they are used to accomplish different goals. The team at VitalityMDs recommends Botox to reduce and fill in wrinkles caused by your facial expressions while fillers add volume to the rest of your face. 

Your provider at VitalityMDs can help determine whether Botox or fillers are the right choice for your cosmetic goals.
