Injectable fillers are meant to be used in various parts of the body (face, earlobes, hands, buttocks) to augment existing soft tissues. Depending on the product and location, they are injected in different depths and varying volumes.
Botox® and other neurotoxins (such as Xeomin®, Dysport®, Jeuveau®) can relax the horizontal line under the nose often formed by a wide grin, improve a gummy smile, help the “bunny lines” at the base of the nose, soften the neck “bands,” upturn the down-turned corners of the mouth to achieve more chin projection, and even treat migraine headaches and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. Botox® can also be used alongside our PiXel8-RF (RF Microneedling) to treat excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis.

Benefits of Botox® & Fillers
Botox® & Filler Candidates
Many patients wish to have facial lines and wrinkles softened. If you’re bothered by the lines on your forehead, between your eyebrows, near your outer eyes (called “crow’s feet”) and the vertical lines around your mouth (called “smoker’s lines”) then Botox® can help. There are other uses for neurotoxins like Botox® as well. Patients who have undergone drastic weight loss often rely on fillers to add volume to their facial features. For nearly every desire and improvement, there’s a filler to match.
Botox® & Fillers FAQs
The hyaluronic acid fillers, along with Radiesse® and Bellafill®, mainly soften and add volume. Other products, such as Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse® (to some degree) stimulate your body to make its own collagen.
Fillers are a group of products intended to smooth the contours of the face, minimize static lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume. There are many different products on the market, so it’s important to only trust a professional trained in the art of plastic surgery to place these products.
Depending on the product, location, and desired outcomes, fillers are injected in different depths and varying volumes into one or several locations. Appointments are generally quick and easy with almost immediate results–two factors that contribute to the wide popularity of filler products.
All of the fillers on the market today are temporary except for fillers that use your own fat (see Fat Grafting). Filler durability is based on the product itself, where it is injected, and your own natural metabolism.
Products injected in areas of high activity (like areas around the mouth) need maintenance sooner than fillers injected at other locations. Patients who have a very high metabolism also tend to need more frequent injections to maintain the volume. It is recommended to have Botox® maintenance every three months (or four times per year). This allows you to see the ultimate correction by keeping target muscles quiet along with the wrinkles they cause.
Fillers can require 10+ minutes to take effect (though the procedure itself may only take seconds to minutes). Some fillers are instantly visible, allowing you and your surgeon to examine the results in real-time and even add more if desired.
