Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox®?

Wrinkles develop over time when the muscles in your face consistently contract in specific areas, causing deep creases that can age your appearance.

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that minimizes the look of wrinkles and fine lines. The chemical solution comes from a highly purified botulinum toxin that temporarily neutralizes the muscles you use that make repeated expressions, causing your common wrinkles.

The procedure only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. You can go about your daily routine after your treatment.

You can see noticeable results in 3-14 days. Although individual results may vary, this effective method of selectively paralyzing your facial muscles and tissues usually lasts up to four months. To maintain your appearance, you can schedule continued treatments.

Is Botox right for me?

At Southard Dental, Dr. Southard uses Botox to treat issues, such as:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Lines between your eyes and eyebrows

If you have any of these problems and you’re unhappy with how your face is responding to the aging process, Botox might be the right solution for you. 

When you meet with Dr. Southard for your consultation, he talks with you about your aesthetic goals to develop a strategy to target your specific treatment areas.

Is Botox different from dermal fillers?

Often, Botox and dermal fillers are spoken of together, but they are different. The Southard Dental team uses dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, that uses hyaluronic acid and calcium to fill in your lines and wrinkles. 

Botox doesn’t fill any areas. Instead, it relaxes the muscle to impair its movement, which smooths out the area. It also helps prevent future wrinkling.

The team at Southard Dental can also combine your Botox treatment with other treatments like lip fillers and facial fillers for a comprehensive treatment.

Is Botox safe?

Botox is FDA-approved, but you should also always have a professional administer your treatment. 

At Southard Dental, your Botox treatments are performed by qualified estheticians and medical professionals in a clinical setting. In addition, you’re supervised by experts in the field, ensuring that you don’t have any side effects, which are extremely rare.

If you’re ready to have a younger-looking appearance with Botox, call Southard Dental today or book your appointment online.
