Botox and Fillers Q & A

Skinsation Medical Spa

What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin (Type A), commonly known as Botox, is one of the most effective cosmetic tools for temporary — but long-lasting — wrinkle reduction. This natural, purified protein is injected into specific points in your facial anatomy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines.*

As a neurotoxin, Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause your facial muscles to contract, leaving your skin looking naturally smooth.

Botox is FDA-approved for use to help improve the appearance of angry 11s, or the deep furrows between your eyebrows, and crow’s feet, or the smile lines at the corners of your eyes.

It’s one of the most commonly requested cosmetic treatments because it delivers immediate results, as most patients begin to see smoother skin in 24-48 hours. The treatment carries few risks or side effects, and requires no downtime afterward.

What are dermal fillers?

If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to temporarily reverse age-related facial deflation and wrinkles without resorting to surgery, dermal fillers can help.

These minimally-invasive injectable cosmetic products are made with collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other beneficial substances that help revitalize skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and add facial volume.* 

With immediate results, few risks or side effects, and little to no downtime, it makes sense that dermal fillers are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.

Skinsation Medical Spa offers a complete menu of top-line dermal filler products, including:

Juvéderm® collection

This state-of-the-art collection of hyaluronic acid fillers is designed to instantly and subtly add volume to various areas of your face, including your cheeks and lips.

Radiesse®

This long-lasting dermal filler is designed to restore volume and correct wrinkles in the area around your mouth and chin.

Belotero Balance®

This filler helps smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, or the wrinkles that extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth.

Bellafill®

This semi-permanent filler provides long-lasting structural support for smoother, younger-looking skin. It’s especially effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars.

Sculptra® Aesthetic

Another long-lasting dermal filler, Sculptra Aesthetic is designed to smooth out the smile lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth.

Restylane® collection

This advanced collection of hyaluronic acid fillers restores facial volume and corrects moderate to severe wrinkles to create a fuller face with smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

How long will my results last?

Although cosmetic injectables are relatively long-lasting, they’re ultimately temporary. If you like your results, you’ll require periodic refresher treatments to maintain your look. 

Botox treatments usually last for three to six months, while many dermal filler treatments last for a year or longer. Depending on your individual treatment plan, Dr. Colon and her team can give you an idea of how long you can expect your results to last.
