Botox & Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers are a minimally invasive and cost-effective way to regain a youthful appearance by stimulating collagen growth in one’s face in order to increase volume, soften creases, and restore smooth lines.

All facial fillers used by Dr. Nabity and Tina are safe and FDA-approved. These dermal fillers improve the appearance of many cosmetic issues, including:

  • Smoothing fine lines
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles
  • Adding volume and fullness

These benefits occur due to an increase in collagen production around your face, allowing for your face to be restored to its youthful self.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Dr. Nabity and his team apply a local anesthetic cream around the injectable area to ensure your comfort. All facial fillers contain lidocaine, which provides an added layer of anesthesia with the injection.

Dr. Nabity customizes the entire treatment by inserting the needle to an exact depth within your skin, using only the necessary number of injections needed in order to achieve the most natural-looking results.

What can I expect after facial fillers?

The treatment lasts for a quick 15-30 minutes. After your first treatment, results are immediately visible. Since it is a noninvasive procedure, you can continue your daily activities right away. Although rare, side effects may occur. This may include redness, minimal swelling, or the formation of tiny bumps under the skin at the site of injection.

While most facial fillers last between nine to 12 months, some last up to 18 months. To maintain your look, you need ongoing injections every few months, depending on the specific dermal filler used.

What are the differences between Botox® and facial fillers?

The primary objective of Botox is to treat and prevent facial wrinkles by reducing the activity of facial muscles where the Botox is injected.

Facial fillers use hyaluronic acid and similar substances to help fill the troubled areas of one’s face with collagen and increase the smoothness or volume in your face.
