Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

Dermal fillers are aesthetic treatments designed to address various aesthetic issues and enhance your appearance by:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhancing facial volume
  • Improving shallow contours
  • Restoring facial symmetry
  • Adding volume and plumping lips and cheeks
  • Softening facial creases
  • Yielding a more youthful appearance
  • Reducing the appearance of facial scars
  • Restoring contour deformities

In a quick and convenient in-office treatment, your Better Life Medical provider simply injects gel-like materials just underneath your skin to enhance your appearance.

Fillers contain a number of ingredients. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is one of the most common. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in your body and is already present in your skin. HA helps keep your skin smooth, plump, and well-hydrated. 

Other filler ingredients include polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid. Your provider can help you choose the right filler for your needs.

What are the different types of dermal fillers?

Better Life Medical offers the following filler injectables to help you achieve your aesthetic goals:

Juvederm

Juvederm is derived from hyaluronic acid. Different types of Juvederm are used for different purposes. Better Life Medical provides Juvederm Ultra XC®, Juvederm Ultra Plus®, Juvederm Voluma®, and Juvederm Volbella® for the lips, cheeks, and more.

Radiesse

Radiesse is made from calcium hydroxylapatite and commonly used for treating volume loss in the back of the hands.

Belotero Balance

Belotero Balance® works well for smoothing and filling lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Belotero Balance is also derived from hyaluronic acid.

PRP therapy

For a more natural filler choice, Better Life Medical provides platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy where you use growth factors and platelets from your own blood drawn from your arm. Your provider concentrates the platelets, so they’re richer and injects the solution into the target area, such as your lips or the lines under your eyes.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that contains botulinum toxin type A, a powerful neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes dynamic facial muscles responsible for lines associated with smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions. Botox and other botulinum injectables, such as Xeomin®, reduce:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Mouth lines
  • Forehead creases
  • A cobblestoned chin

Your Better Life Medical specialist might recommend Botox in addition to dermal fillers to help you achieve the most desirable outcome.

Most cosmetic injectables involve little to no downtime, and the effects usually last up to four months or longer. Multiple injections and ongoing treatment sessions might be needed for optimal results.
