Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable made by Allergan. Sorrentino and his aesthetic team use Botox to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that result from smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions. 

The injections are made of botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses to muscles to relax and paralyze them and reduce skin wrinkling.

What are fillers?

Fillers are cosmetic injectables made of various substances, such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, or polymethylmethacrylate, that your provider injects just beneath the skin.

Doing so helps plump sunken in areas and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Examples of dermal fillers available at Affinity Wellness 4 Life include Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Sculptra®. More than one million adults choose FDA-approved fillers for facial rejuvenation.

What are the benefits of Botox and fillers?

When choosing Botox at Affinity Wellness 4 Life, you experience improvements in the following common signs of aging:

  • Forehead creases
  • Lines near your mouth
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • A cobblestone chin

Anti-aging Benefits of fillers include:

  • Restored facial and cheek volume
  • Reduced nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkle filling and wrinkle reduction
  • Diminished acne scars
  • Smoother smile, chin, and marionette lines
  • Diminished vertical lip lines and plumped lips
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Enhanced collagen stimulation
  • Under eye filling
  • Hand rejuvenation

Botox and dermal fillers are a cost-effective way to restore younger-looking skin without surgery, cutting, scars, or downtime. They are simple, fast, and virtually painless but produce dramatic anti-aging results.

What should I expect during Botox or filler injections?

Prior to Botox or filler injections, your practitioner examines your skin and reviews your medical history. 

If you’re a good candidate for the procedure, they use a topical anesthetic if you’d like and inject Botox or filler material at strategic areas of your skin to achieve optimal results. The injections take just minutes to complete.

What happens after treatment?

After Botox or filler injections, you might experience redness, swelling, or mild bruising at the injection site. Apply ice packs to the area as needed. 

Because there’s no downtime associated with cosmetic injections, you can resume normal everyday activities right away after treatment. However, your practitioner might recommend you avoid strenuous exercise until the following day.

You notice improvements immediately after filler injections, and within three to seven days after Botox. Anti-aging effects of Botox can last as long as 3-6 months, and improvements associated with dermal fillers might last 6-18 months.

After that time, maintenance treatments help you maintain new, younger-looking skin for a lifetime. Your aesthetic specialist lets you know how often to schedule follow-up treatments to achieve the desired outcome.
