Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are cosmetic fillers?

As a natural part of the aging process, the skin of your face loses elasticity and collagen, making wrinkles develop over time with repeated facial movements.

Cosmetic fillers reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and restore volume and fullness to your face.

Cosmetic fillers can be used to:

  • Decrease a lower lid shadow
  • Improve the appearance of scarring
  • Soften and reduce facial creases, lines, and wrinkles
  • Plump lips
  • Improve deformed or shallow facial contours

What can I expect when I get a cosmetic filler?

Dr. Chin provides cosmetic fillers in-office in a quick, convenient lunchtime visit. First, Dr. Chin cleans the treatment area and, in some cases, applies a topical numbing cream.

Next, Dr. Chin finishes the treatment by carefully administering a precise, controlled amount of the filler under your skin.

You’re free to resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. You might experience mild swelling or bruising, but this is normal and subsides within a few days.

Dr. Chin provides different types of cosmetic fillers:

Restylane

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler used for reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane products are formulated to act like your body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and restore volume and diminish wrinkles. The innovative technology gives each product specific, unique particle sizes tailored for each treatment.

 

BOTOX

BOTOX is derived from a toxin that’s created by a bacterium: Clostridium Botulinum. When injected in small, dilute amounts into certain muscles, it blocks signals from nerves to muscles and evokes a controlled weakening of your muscles.

The controlled weakening means that your muscles can no longer contract, and the wrinkles relax.

Dysport

Dysport, or abobotulinumtoxinA, is similar to BOTOX and also blocks the signals between nerves and muscles, causing a controlled weakening.

RADIESSE

RADIESSE is a filler containing tiny particles of calcium hydroxylapatite — a substance naturally occurring in your bones and teeth. It’s long-lasting and can’t be easily broken down by your body.

RADIESSE is immediately effective upon injection and also promotes the production of collagen.

Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler that’s particularly effective at enhancing volume and fullness on the face.

What are the benefits of cosmetic fillers?

Cosmetic fillers can last from months to years, depending on the type of filler, the individual, and the severity of the lines. Cosmetic fillers require ongoing treatments for long-term results, but the treatments are quick and effective.

Some fillers also work to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production, which plumps your skin and enhances the results.
