Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. The injections soften:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines

When injected into the muscles in your face, Botox causes the muscle to relax, which prevents the folding of your skin and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Botox is a quick procedure Dr. Kim can do on your lunch break and requires no downtime. You can even apply makeup afterward.

Botox doesn’t work instantly, but you may start to notice an improvement in your look within a week after treatment.

Botox is a safe procedure when conducted by a skilled professional like Dr. Kim.

How long do Botox injections last?

Botox injections keep you looking young for up to four months. However, Dr. Kim can inject a new round of Botox as soon as you start to notice the effects wearing off. Frequent Botox injections may cause the muscle under your skin to thin, which may help your treatment last even longer.

What are fillers?

Fillers are cosmetic injections that help plump up your skin to reduce wrinkles, add volume, and contour your face. They can even raise a recessed scar.

The types of fillers provided by Dr. Kim include:

  • Juvederm® to fill in lines around the nose and mouth  
  • Voluma® to add volume to your cheeks
  • Belotero® to smooth out your smile lines

After an examination and once a treatment plan is developed, Dr. Kim can inject your fillers in with precision and care in about 15 minutes. After your injections, you may ease any swelling or discomfort with an ice pack. You should be able to resume your usual activities after treatment without the need for any downtime.

Unlike Botox, fillers provide an immediate change to your look.

How long do fillers last?

If you follow good skin care practices, which includes regular use of sunblock and covering up during the peak sun hours, your fillers may keep you looking youthful and fresh for up a year.

Dr. Kim can inject fillers as needed to help you maintain your look.
