Botox & Fillers Q & A

Your Body By Design

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic industry name for botulinum toxin, which is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, creases, and lines by paralyzing or relaxing the muscles in your face.

The practitioners at Your Body by Design Medispa administer a few tiny injections into your face and forehead, preventing your facial muscles from contracting and eliminating the dynamic motion that causes your skin to wrinkle.

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers represent a wide range of products containing hyaluronic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxyl that are used to enhance the volume of your facial skin.

At Your Body by Design Medispa, the practitioners accomplish this volume-adding enhancement by making small injections in targeted areas of your face. Facial fillers are typically used to soften creases and wrinkles, and to reconstruct contour deformities in your face.  

How long do the effects of Botox and facial fillers last?

You can typically expect to see results from your Botox treatment after 3-10 days. Normally, the effects of Botox last 4-6 months. Consecutive treatments are often needed to achieve the same results. Facial wrinkles and lines become less noticeable over time with more treatments — each time your treatment cycle ends, your muscles have been trained to relax.

Like Botox, the results you see from facial fillers are temporary and require consecutive treatments to maintain their benefits. Your results also depend on the specific product used, the treatment area, and your condition. You can typically expect results to last 6-18 months.

What areas can Botox and facial fillers treat?

The practitioners at Your Body by Design Medispa typically use Botox to:

  • Smooth forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Eliminate crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Perform lip augmentation
  • Treat cases of high lip line

Facial fillers are also typically used to:

  • Shape your cheeks
  • Add volume to your chin
  • Improve your jawline
