Botox and Fillers Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medication made from a purified botulinum toxin. This toxin temporarily paralyzes muscles in your upper face that contribute to frown lines and crow’s feet.

As your facial muscles relax, your skin smooths out to minimize the appearance of creases around your eyes and deep-set wrinkles across your brow.

Ample Health offers Botox therapy for adults who are unhappy with the appearance of age-related wrinkles and lines but aren’t ready for surgery. The team also offers a range of dermal fillers to restore lost facial volume, plump your lips, and enhance the natural contours of your face.

When should I consider Botox?

You may be a candidate for the Botox services available at Ample Health if you feel self-conscious about frown lines across your brow or crow’s feet around your eyes. These aesthetic issues become more common after years of squinting and frowning.

As you age, your body also slows down its production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins in healthy skin. This can lead to sagging skin, loss of volume around your cheeks, and noticeable wrinkles and fine lines.

The medical team provides comprehensive skin evaluations to determine if Botox therapy or treatment with dermal fillers is right for you. They also discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations to ensure these minimally invasive treatments will produce the results you desire.

What happens during Botox therapy?

During your Botox session, the Ample Health team can apply a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. They inject precise amounts of Botox into areas of your upper face. Your treatment time depends on how many injections you need.

You may not notice the results of Botox immediately. It can take 48 hours or longer before the skin smooths out. However, your results can last up to four months before you need additional injections.

If you combine your Botox treatments with dermal fillers, the team can inject the desired filler into specific areas of your face. Many fillers provide instant results that continue to improve in the weeks after treatment. Depending on the type of filler you receive, your results can last six months or longer before you need maintenance treatments.
