Botox & Fillers Q & A

What is Botox®? 

Botox is a purified neurotoxin used to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by repeated expressions such as smiling, squinting, and frowning. It’s FDA-approved to smooth crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead, and frown lines between the brows.

When expertly injected by the technicians and doctors at Longoria OBGYN, you achieve a smooth, softer look, but don’t appear as if you’ve had cosmetic work done.

Treatment with Botox requires no downtime afterward, so you can go back to your regular activities. You see the smoothing results of Botox injections in just 24-48 hours. Effects last about three to four months but regular retreatments can be scheduled to keep up your look.

What are dermal fillers?

The aging process thins skin in your facial tissue so lines appear more prominent, especially around the nose and mouth. Your cheeks lose some volume, too. Dr. Longoria recommends dermal fillers to smooth wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and fill in hollowing spaces that make you appear gaunt.

The Juvéderm® line of fillers made by Allergan offered at Longoria OBGYN are gel-like substances that require no downtime and give superior results. They’re a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to surgery. The expert team evaluates your facial features, aging patterns, and aesthetic goals to determine exactly where to place the fillers and which formulas to use so you get optimal enhancing results.

How does Juvéderm work?

The Juvéderm line of products address the signs of aging by plumping hollow cheeks and thinning lips. Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that your body produces in abundance in your youth. Hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps your skin. As production declines with age, lines, wrinkles, and hollowing occurs.

Juvéderm injections, including Juvéderm Voluma®, Vollure®, and Volbella®, effectively treat folds and wrinkles in the face. The effects include:

  • Reduction in the appearance of smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Smoothing of marionette lines on the corners of your mouth
  • Restored volume in the mid-face
  • Plumper lips
  • Smoothing of smoker’s lines

The team at Longoria OBGYN evaluates your skin to determine the best application of the dermal filler. Combined Juvéderm and Botox injections are often most effective in getting you the look you want. Juvéderm effects are noticeable right away, and you don’t have to take time away from your daily life after treatment. Juvéderm effects last 6-18 months and can be repeated.
