What Are the Typical Results of Botox or Filler Treatment?
We want you to feel completely comfortable with your procedure before we even get started. You should ask us any questions you have so that there are no surprises. We’ll also discuss your predicted results before administering injections. The more thorough your initial consultation, the better idea our providers will have of what you’re hoping to gain from this process.
Botox and fillers work very differently, and treat the upper and lower half of the face (respectively). Here’s what you can expect immediately after your treatment session:
- Botox – While you might see or feel a change shortly after your appointment, it will take several days for the results to take full hold. You’ll see the treated areas smoothing out, and fine to deep lines easing from your skin. In the 3-6 months afterwards, those muscles will remain relaxed, and the overlying skin unwrinkled. You will see full muscle movement return as the Botox wears off.
- Dermal Fillers – Whether you’ve received Juvederm in your lips, your cheeks, or around your mouth, the results will be immediate. You’ll be slightly swollen, so things will actually look a little plumper off the bat than they’ll be after a brief healing period. If you feel like the results are overdone, wait a couple days to see the true outcome. While fillers last a bit longer than Botox, the results will gradually fade in the months following (with the rate of change depending on the area treated).
Who is a Candidate?
We will lay out the safety considerations for Botox and Juvederm before your appointment. Most patients are candidates for both treatments, and when administered correctly, there are minimal risks. Just let us know if you’re ever worried about the treatment process – we want you to be as comfortable as possible.
