Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

As you age, your face loses some of its elasticity and collagen. Without this adequate collagen and elasticity, your skin sags, sinks, and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are medical grade cosmetic products that are developed with hyaluronic acid and collagen, two components necessary for healthy skin. When administered by a skin care expert like Dr. Eller, dermal fillers effectively restore your skin, plump your lips, reduce scars, and replace lost volume.

What is Botox?

Botox is a well-known, FDA-approved cosmetic injection. It works underneath your skin’s surface to temporarily paralyze the frequently used muscles that contract regularly and cause wrinkles. Popular areas for treatment with Botox include:

  • Laugh lines
  • Crow’s-feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases
  • Brow furrows

Another, lesser-known feature of Botox is its ability to relieve excessive sweating in your underarms, hands, and feet.

How long does Botox treatment take?

When you meet for a consultation, Dr. Eller evaluates your skin and health history and lets you know what to expect during the procedure. He typically performs your Botox dermal filler procedure in about 15 minutes. If you have a lot of creases and wrinkles to treat, it may take a few minutes longer.

Since the needle Dr. Eller uses during your Botox treatment is tiny, you’ll only feel a slight pinch during the treatment. Most patients tolerate the procedure extremely well and report only mild to no pain.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

You’ll see the benefits of Botox for four to six months after your initial treatment. Your wrinkles and lines will continue to smooth out and be less noticeable over time, leaving your skin full, fresh, and rejuvenated.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

If you’re unhappy with your sagging skin or wrinkles, or if you’d like to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face, Botox is a great choice.

Dr. Eller meets with you to evaluate your skin and overall health. He determines if you’re a good candidate for prescription Botox treatments based on the following criteria:

  • You’re in good overall health
  • You’re in good emotional health
  • You have moderate to extreme wrinkles
  • Your wrinkles are on your forehead, between your eyes, or around your neck
