Botox and Fillers
What are dermal injections?
Dermal injections are a type of medication that is delivered to the deep layers of your skin using a very fine, sterile needle. Injections are a safe, nonsurgical option to address mild to moderate cosmetic concerns in the face and body.
What is Botox?
Botox® is a popular injection treatment that’s FDA-approved to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.
Dr. Soto uses Botox injections to address:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
Botox works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles under your skin, causing the muscle to relax so that wrinkles and creases appear smoother.
How long do Botox injections take?
Botox treatments take 10 minutes or less, and there’s no downtime so you can return to normal activities right away.
How long do Botox results last?
You should start to see results in about 24-28 hours, with full effects visible around two weeks after your treatment. Results can last up to four months.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injection treatment that adds a volumizing compound to the deep layers of your skin to make it appear smoother and fuller.
Dr. Soto uses dermal fillers to improve:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Hollow cheeks
- Sunken eyes
- Recessed scars
Dr. Soto recommends one of the many types of dermal fillers available to meet your individual needs and goals for treatment. For example, Radiesse® is used to enhance skin volume on the backs of the hands, while Bellafill® is specifically designed to address smile lines, and it’s the only FDA-approved long-term treatment for severe acne scars.
What should I expect during dermal filler injections?
Dermal filler treatments take an hour or less to complete. Dr. Soto uses a topical numbing cream on your skin so you’ll be comfortable during the injection process. There’s no downtime required, but you may need to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
How long do dermal fillers last?
You should notice an improvement in the target area right after your dermal filler treatment. The amount of time your results last depends on the type of filler, the area treated, and individual factors. In general, fillers last anywhere between four months and five years.
