Botox and fillers are cosmetic injections that reduce the visible signs of aging to enhance your natural beauty.
Botox is an injection that contains a safe neurotoxin. When administered in small amounts in optimal places, Botox temporarily stops muscle movement and the transmission of nerve signals to get the desired results. Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street uses Dysport®, a Botox-type injectable that is FDA-approved to treat frown lines.
Fillers are gel-like cosmetic injections that add volume under your skin to enhance features and fill in creases. Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street uses the Juvéderm® and Restylane® line of fillers.
Botox and fillers address the visible signs of aging, including:
The Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street team may also use fillers to fill in depressed acne scars or create facial symmetry.
The Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street team customizes your Botox and filler injections after a cosmetic dermatology consultation. They create treatment plans that offer natural looking results. Your plan may include Botox, fillers, or both.
During your session, your dermatologist cleans your skin and may apply a numbing lotion to ease discomfort. They carefully and precisely inject the medication into your skin to get the right look.
Botox injections take only a few minutes, while fillers may take up to an hour. There’s no downtime following your injections. However, the team at Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street recommends you skip any strenuous exercise for a day or two to reduce your risk of bruising.
You can expect to see results from your filler injections right away. Botox results may appear within 24-48 hours, but it may take up to 30 days until you see the full effects.
Fillers may last six or more months, while Botox may last 3-4 months*. The Integrated Dermatology of 19th Street team recommends scheduling your next session of Botox and fillers once you notice the effects wearing off.
