Botox and Fillers Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox injections are aesthetic treatments for facial wrinkles. They have FDA approval for reducing frown lines between your eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead lines, and wrinkles around your eyes (crow's feet).

You can have Botox treatments in-office at Louisiana Center for Women's Health. The procedure shouldn't be too uncomfortable, but to ensure you're pain-free, you can have an anesthetic cream on your skin prior to the injections.

Botox works by disrupting signals the nerves in your face send to the muscles telling them to contract. The result is a relaxing of the areas prone to wrinkles, which smooths out your skin.

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are another type of injectable aesthetic product that addresses the signs of aging.

Fillers work differently to Botox, though. They plump up the lines, wrinkles, and hollows that develop when you lose collagen from your face, smoothing the skin and rejuvenating your appearance.

Dermal fillers contain natural substances, such as hyaluronic acid (HA) and calcium hydroxylapatite. The Louisiana Center for Women's Health team uses dermal fillers to achieve natural-looking contouring.

Can I have Botox and fillers at the same time?

Having Botox and filler treatments together is a great idea and can significantly improve your results.

While separate Botox and filler treatments can achieve excellent results, in combination, the effects are noticeable enough that the procedure is known as a liquid facelift.

It requires considerable expertise to combine the right products for optimal effect. Therefore, it's important to only receive Botox and fillers from a practice like Louisiana Center for Women's Health, whose staff undergo specialized training in administering liquid facelifts.

How long do the effects of Botox and fillers last?

Botox injections typically need redoing every 3-4 months. Dermal filler treatments may last for a year or sometimes longer.

Should you stop having Botox and fillers, the natural effects of aging take over again. If you want to maintain your appearance, you need regular treatments with the Louisiana Center for Women's Health team.
