Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are BOTOX and fillers?

BOTOX is a brand name of the toxin that a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum produces. When one of the trained professionals at Quality Dental Center Inc. injects it in precise amounts, this toxin can effectively and safely limit the contractions of facial muscles that often lead to wrinkles. The result is a reversal of many noticeable signs of aging, including:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Chin dimpling
  • Facial folds, creases, and wrinkles

Fillers are gel products with active ingredients, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, that can be injected beneath your skin. They help rejuvenate skin or add volume to target areas of cosmetic concern. Injectable fillers can safely give you a more youthful, vital appearance to be proud of.

How do BOTOX and fillers work?

Both BOTOX and fillers are injection treatments that require in-office visits. During treatment for BOTOX or a specific filler, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia.

For fillers, the team at Quality Dental Center Inc. provides two options: Juvederm and Xeomin. Juvederm is a collection of fillers typically used to treat lost facial volume in and around the cheek area or to plump up or augment thin lips. Xeomin, on the other hand, is generally injected into the area between the eyebrows on the forehead to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines.

BOTOX or fillers involve short treatment sessions, typically lasting under 30 minutes or an hour at most. The results should last at least several months and return visits are recommended to achieve longer lasting anti-aging results.

Are BOTOX and fillers safe?

At Quality Dental Center Inc., getting BOTOX or fillers to improve your appearance is incredibly safe. The team goes above and beyond to make sure your treatment goes off without a hitch. However, there are certain potential side effects your provider will discuss with you, including:

  • Muscle weakness at the injection site
  • Pain or swelling at the injection site
  • A headache
  • Vision problems
  • Dry mouth
  • Neck pain

These side effects should be temporary and will usually subside on their own quickly. If you experience any prolonged negative side effects, let the office know right away.
