Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a prescription medicine containing the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Dr. Yokana injects it into select muscles of your face to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines.

How does BOTOX work?

Small movements, such as when you squint, smile, or frown, use muscles that etch lines into your face. BOTOX halts the nerve impulses that cause these small movements, smoothing out wrinkles and lines temporarily. It’s been used for decades by millions of people and is FDA-approved.

Who should consider BOTOX?

Anyone interested in looking younger and rejuvenated can benefit from BOTOX. It’s particularly useful in reducing the lines in the forehead and between the eyebrows, as well as crow’s feet around the eyes.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM, Belotero Balance®, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, plump fine lines and hollow areas in your face to restore youthful beauty.

Their primary ingredient is a natural compound known as hyaluronic acid. As you age, your body produces less of this compound. When you restore it with injectables, you can plump sunken areas, fill out your lips, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

What are the benefits of each type of injectable filler?

A variety of fillers are available and each works well for different aesthetic purposes. Some of the most common fillers used at Mannheim Med Spa include:

JUVÉDERM

This filler adds volume to lift your cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, and plump the lips.

Belotero Balance

This injectable is a soft gel that fills the skin to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC

A filler formulated with lidocaine to ease discomfort during application, it restores age-related volume changes in the cheeks.

How long do the results of injectables last?

Both BOTOX and fillers are temporary solutions to the signs of aging. BOTOX results can last three to four months, while fillers may last between six and 18 months.

Exactly how long each injectable lasts depends on your personal metabolism, the formula used, and the area treated. Dr. Yokana can create a customized treatment plan so you get repeated injections at the right time and maintain your results.
