Botox and Fillers Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a name-brand cosmetic injectable, but many people use it as the general term for other injectables in the same category. Its key ingredient, botulinum toxin, relaxes targeted muscles to serve a number of purposes. 

By far the most well-known use of Botox and similar injectables like Xeomin® is minimizing fine facial lines, including crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. The effects are temporary but noticeable enough to keep many people coming back for more.

For most people, a single round of Botox or Xeomin injections produces results that last for 3-4 months. You can get them repeatedly if you want to enjoy an even longer time with fewer fine lines on your face. 

What are fillers?

Fillers, also called dermal fillers, are cosmetic injectables that work in a different way than Botox and Xeomin. They also accomplish different goals, though Botox and fillers both aim to minimize features associated with getting older. 

Using premium dermal fillers like Revanesse® Versa™+, Radiesse®, and Restylane®, the team at Laser Vein MedSpa can give you:

  • Plump, proportionate lips
  • Plump, lifted cheeks
  • A more symmetrical face
  • More youthful hands 
  • Fewer large wrinkles around the mouth and nose

Fillers like those available at Laser Vein MedSpa are thick in consistency and sit beneath the skin after injection. Some of them, namely Radiesse, stimulate collagen growth within your skin to offer results that last for a year or longer. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Versa offer 6-12 months of volume at a time. As with Botox, you can get them repeatedly. 

How should I prepare for treatment with Botox and fillers?

Before getting Botox, fillers, or both, you’ll need to come in for a complete consultation at Laser Vein MedSpa. During this visit, the team goes over your medical history and asks you about the goals you want to reach with cosmetic injectables. 

If your goals align with the abilities of Botox or fillers, the team starts planning your treatment. They may give you additional pre-treatment instructions like:

  • Taking a break from smoking
  • Temporarily avoiding alcoholic beverages
  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications and supplements
  • Removing your makeup before your appointment
  • Asking all relevant questions about the treatment beforehand

If your goals do not align with the abilities of either Botox or fillers, the Laser Vein MedSpa team can direct you to a more appropriate treatment option.
