Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that reduce signs of aging and offer additional aesthetic benefits. Botox uses botulinum toxin to reduce lines that occur due to making repeated facial expressions, while fillers add volume to sunken areas of your face or your lips. 

The injectables improve your overall appearance without pain, surgery, or downtime. In addition, if you experience eye twitching, Botox can reduce this symptom. 

What are the benefits of Botox and fillers?

You can experience many benefits with Botox and fillers at Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, including:

  • Fewer facial lines
  • Fewer crow’s feet and forehead lines
  • Tighter skin
  • Improved facial contours
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Plumper lips
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Diminished eye twitching

Botox and filler injections are fast, taking just a few minutes to complete, making these injections excellent lunchtime procedures. 

Are Botox and fillers right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for Botox and fillers, Dr. Williams reviews your medical history, examines your skin, and discusses your desired outcome before personalizing an aesthetics treatment just for you. She may recommend Botox, dermal fillers, or combinations of cosmetic procedures to maximize your results.

What should I expect during cosmetic injections?

Dr. Williams numbs the treatment area before injecting Botox or fillers into your skin at targeted locations to avoid discomfort. Each treatment takes just a few minutes to complete, and there’s no downtime afterward.

What happens after my treatment?

After cosmetic injections, you may experience swelling or redness at the injection sites; however, these side effects don’t last long. The effects of Botox may take a few days to develop, while you should notice immediate results after dermal fillers. Avoid touching the injection sites while the areas heal. 

Botox usually lasts several months, while some fillers can last up to two years before you need repeat procedures to maintain long-lasting results. You can return to Dr. Williams as needed for additional Botox and filler treatments to avoid future signs of aging.
