BOTOX VS. FILLERS: WHAT’S RIGHT FOR ME?
Botox and facial fillers can both give great results. However they work differently. Botox is generally used in the upper 1/3 of the face (forehead, frown lines and crow's feet) to temporarily decrease movement of the facial muscles. Fillers are viscous solutions used in the lower 2/3 of the face (below the eyes) to restore volume loss or to fill in facial lines ... hollow eyes, shallow cheeks and marionette lines will be diminished.

About Botox Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT A TYPICAL OFFICE VISIT FOR BOTOX
Consultation: We'll discuss any concerns you may have regarding your appearance or Botox treatment so we can meet your goals.
Assessment: Your provider will do a facial analysis to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Treatment: If appropriate, we will administer Botox Cosmetic. Very fine needles are used and typically numbing is not necessary. The actual treatment takes about 10 minutes—get in, get out, get on with your day. You may return to work immediately after your visit.
Follow-up: We offer a free two week follow-up visit to assess your response to treatment and do any needed touch-ups.
RESULTS AFTER TREATMENT
24 to 48 Hours: You may begin to notice results within 1 to 2 days for moderate to severe frown lines.
14 Days: Maximal benefit is generally seen at two weeks.

About Juvéderm & Voluma
JUVEDÉRM and VOLUMA are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As people age, faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat— so smile lines, hollow eyes, and shallow cheeks become more apparent. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical way to add volume beneath the skin’s surface, helping to restore your youthful look and minimize the signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin, helping the skin retain moisture and softness while adding volume.
WHAT TO EXCEPT FROM FACIAL FILLERS
Immediate and long lasting results: Dermal filler effects are apparent immediately and results may last one year to two years, with optimal correction and depending on the formulation used.
Lift and Contour Cheeks: Voluma XC adds volume to correct age-related volume loss to help create a more youthful appearance. Voluma XC is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area.
Smooth Parentheses (Marionette) Lines and Wrinkles: The Juvéderm collection of fillers softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance.
No Down Time: Facial fillers are administered during an office visit. Depending on the areas to be treated it may take up to 45 minutes. You may do Botox Cosmetic and Dermal Fillers during the same appointment. Return to work and life immediately after your treatment.
Most Common Side Effects: In clinical studies, injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching were the most common side effects. These were generally mild to moderate and most resolved in 14 days and almost all by 28 days.
