Botox and Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers improve the appearance of your face by plumping the skin and adding volume. At Nouvé Med Spa, the team uses the Allergan product line, specifically Juverderm.

Juvederm is known as a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound that your body produces to moisturize, soften, and plump your skin. As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid decreases. Replace it with Juvederm products to get youthful results.

What aesthetic issues can dermal fillers address?

As you age, your face loses subcutaneous fat and the skin loses its volume. The result are fine lines and wrinkles that become more prominent. Plus, you may start to lose volume in your cheeks and lips.

Dermal fillers from the Juvederm family of fillers offer solutions to these effects of aging. Juvederm products can:

  • Plump thin lips
  • Soften wrinkles and lines
  • Add volume to the cheeks
  • Improve the appearance of mild to moderate scars

Several different Juvederm products are available and each is specially formulated for use to address specific cosmetic issues. For example, Juvederm XC treats moderate to severe parentheses lines around your nose and mouth and Juvederm Volbella adds volume to your lips and softens lip lines. The expert team at Nouvé Med Spa can evaluate your face and review your aesthetic goals to determine which formulas are best for you.

Do dermal filler injections hurt?

Because a fine needle is used to inject dermal fillers, you feel minimal pain from the injections. Some formulas contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, to reduce pain, too. Most patients tolerate the treatment well, but if you’re concerned about the sensation, ask about topical numbing creams and ice to ease discomfort.

How soon will I see results from dermal fillers?

You see the results of dermal fillers immediately following treatment. Each treatment session takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many areas you’ve chosen to address. There is no downtime following dermal filler injections; you can go right back to your everyday activities following a session.

How long do the results of dermal fillers last?

The wrinkle-reducing and volumizing effects of dermal fillers usually last one to two years, depending on the formulas used. To maintain your results, set up a regular schedule of treatments with the team at Nouvé Med Spa.

How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?

Wrinkles form due to repeated muscle contractions that occur when you make expressions, such as smiling or frowning. BOTOX is a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks the signal between the nerves and muscles, so wrinkles appear less obvious. BOTOX has been used for years, it’s been thoroughly tested, and it’s FDA-approved to treat facial wrinkles.

Where is BOTOX effective?

BOTOX injections work on crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal lines on the forehead. The aesthetic specialists at Nouvé Med Spa evaluate your face to determine exactly where you’d benefit from BOTOX application, so you get a more relaxed, softened, and youthful look.

Who should consider getting BOTOX?

Anyone bothered by the appearance of wrinkles and lines on their forehead and around their eyes is a candidate. You don’t have to be a certain age to get the injections. You may even choose to receive BOTOX injections as a preventive measure because by blocking the muscle action, you can stall the development of wrinkles and lines.

Do BOTOX injections hurt?

BOTOX injections do involve a fine needle prick and feel like a pinch. But treatments are brief and most people tolerate them quite well. If you’re worried about discomfort, talk to the staff at Nouvé Med Spa about applying ice or a numbing cream at treatment time.

When will I see the results of BOTOX and how long do those results last?

You’ll notice results within just a few days of treatment. Results last between three and four months. To maintain your new look, set up a treatment schedule with the providers at Nouvé Med Spa.

Is there any downtime associated with BOTOX?

You can get BOTOX injections at lunch and go right back to your regular activities following. You may experience slight redness or minor swelling at the sites of the injections, but side effects are minimal. Occasionally, the injections can cause mild bruising which can take a week or two to disappear. Discuss any concerns about side effects with the staff so that you understand the treatment in advance of the injections.
