Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the first FDA-approved treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. 

It’s also the world’s leading nonsurgical cosmetic procedure, and for a good reason. Botox delivers results and is backed by more than 15 years of clinical trials. 

The formulation is created from Clostridium botulinum, a substance found in forests, lakes, and soil. In certain concentrations, this substance is toxic, but the amount used in cosmetic and medical applications is perfectly safe. 

Botox works by temporarily slowing the ability of targeted facial muscles to go through their full range of motion. That prevents those muscles from pulling and tugging your skin into lines, wrinkles, and folds. 

You’ll still be able to create normal facial expressions. You just won’t have the deep lines and changes in your skin that create the visible signs of aging. Botox is administered via a series of injections and delivers results that last around four months. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that replace lost facial volume or increase volume where needed. They are an excellent tool to address age-related facial changes and can also be used to refine the contouring of a youthful face. 

When you’re young, you have a thick layer of collagen that lies just beneath the surface of your skin. That collagen pads and softens your facial contours, but over time, much of your natural collagen is lost and does not regenerate. 

Dermal fillers work by immediately plumping your face with a gel-like formulation. Even more importantly, the filler material prompts your body to produce a new layer of collagen, which has an effect that lasts long after your body absorbs the filler solution. 

Dermal fillers can enhance volume in the middle portion of your face, around your mouth or eyes, or in the folds that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. There are even options that can plump and refine the shape of your lips. 

What is a liquid face-lift?

A liquid face-lift is a term used to describe a combination approach using Botox and dermal fillers. The experienced practitioners at Tayani Institute can evaluate the contouring of your face and determine the exact combination of products and techniques to create a gorgeous result. 

Combining dermal fillers and Botox can smooth lines and wrinkles and improve the overall fullness and shape of your face. Best of all, you can see the results within days so you can decide if you’d like to make further changes during subsequent treatments. 

For example, if you love the way Botox eliminates your crow’s feet but want a more refined lip line, your doctor can use a dermal filler to boost lip volume during your next visit.
