Botox and Fillers Q & A

How do fillers work?

Injectable wrinkle fillers plump the skin by filling in space underneath the wrinkles or relaxing the muscles that deepen wrinkles.

The injections use collagen, hyaluronic acid, body fat, or another substance to lift the skin and fill creases. As a result, they leave you with a more youthful appearance.

What skin conditions do fillers help with?

Cosmetic fillers improve facial skin in numerous ways, including:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles (crow’s feet, laugh lines, eyebrow furrows, and forehead creases)
  • Dissolve chin fat
  • Fill in the cheeks and lips
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars

What filler options do you offer?

The experts at Outer Banks Dermatology have the training, expertise, and licensing necessary to administer the following fillers:

  • KYBELLA®: deoxycholic acid reduces fat under the chin; results are permanent
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC, Juvéderm® XC, Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm Volbella® XC: cheek, face, and lip fillers made of hyaluronic acid; lasts up to one year
  • Restylane Refyne®, Restylane Defyne®, Restylane Silk®, Restylane Lyft®: cheek, face, and lip fillers made of hyaluronic acid; lasts up to one year
  • BOTOX®: purified botulinum toxins relax facial muscles to reduce wrinkles; lasts up to four months
  • Dysport®: the acetylcholine release inhibitor relaxes muscles between the brows; results last up to four months

What are the benefits of cosmetic fillers?

Cosmetic fillers provide a minimally invasive solution for aging skin. They’re a great alternative to more complicated surgical procedures and produce natural-looking results.

Another benefit of cosmetic fillers is that they result in virtually no downtime and minimal side effects. You may experience some mild temporary swelling or discomfort after getting fillers, but the side effects dissipate quickly.

The treatments themselves are also relatively painless. You may feel a slight pinch when the needle enters the skin, but it feels no different than getting a shot and can be alleviated with topical or local anesthetics.

It’s essential to discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Glover or Dr. Conologue. Each filler targets a different area, lasts a certain amount of time, and uses various ingredients so you may want to consider all those factors before choosing your treatment approach.
