Botox & Fillers Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox contains a purified form of a specialized bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This safe and effective strain of botulinum toxin targets the muscle contractions that are known for causing wrinkles. When injected, Botox starts to relax those muscles, resulting in smoother skin. Results look entirely natural.

Do I need fillers with Botox?

Possibly. The dermatologists at Midwest Dermatology spend time going over your desired outcome and the severity of your wrinkles. Botox is ideal for men and women who have mild to moderate lines and wrinkles. If you also have collagen loss or deeper grooves, you’ll have better results if you pair Botox injections with fillers.

Dermal fillers restore lost collagen and help plump your skin. So while your Botox treatment smooths your aging skin, dermal fillers add volume, helping to take years off your face.

The most common filler utilizes hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your body. In other cases, fat is removed from your body through liposuction and injected into areas of your face.

Are Botox and other fillers permanent?

No. Neither Botox nor fillers are permanent. You can expect your Botox injections to last for approximately four months. Dermal fillers can last for anywhere from 12-36 months, depending on which one you choose.

Do Botox and filler injections hurt?

The team of dermatologists have specialized training to inject Botox and fillers in the most precise areas to minimize pain, as well as to boost effectiveness. While some men and women report feeling a mild pinching or burning sensation during their treatments, you shouldn’t be in pain.

If you’re sensitive to injections or are otherwise worried about pain, you can apply an ice pack to the treatment area about 20-30 minutes beforehand. Your dermatologist may also suggest numbing your skin by applying a topical numbing solution before your visit.
