Botox & Dermal Fillers Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a name-brand cosmetic injectable that is well known for its ability to decrease fine lines on the face by inhibiting muscle movements. These lines develop over time when you make facial expressions or move your face in other ways, like sucking on a straw or smoking. 


Smoothing the lines on your face lets you enjoy a fresher and more youthful look. Botox can minimize:


  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Lines around your lips
  • Chin dimples


You can get Botox on its own at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC or alongside another cosmetic injectable type: dermal fillers.  

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are not the same as Botox, but both treatments are injections. Instead of smoothing lines by preventing the muscle movements that cause them, dermal fillers add volume under your skin to give you more plumpness in targeted areas. 


The dermal fillers at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC can:


  • Plump thin lips
  • Volumize your cheeks
  • Minimize larger wrinkles, like marionette lines
  • Remove the shadow of your lower eyelids
  • Adjust your facial contours
  • Make your facial features more symmetrical
  • Minimize recessed scars


Your personalized treatment plan with dermal fillers includes injections in areas where your skin lacks volume or has lost collagen. 

How long do Botox and dermal fillers last?

Botox tends to last for three to four months, but you can visit Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC for additional injections once the results go away. You can do the same with dermal fillers, which last from six months to over a year, depending on the type of filler you get. 

How should I prepare for Botox and dermal fillers?

The first thing you should do if you’re interested in Botox or dermal fillers is to schedule a consultation with the team at Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC. The team evaluates your goals before studying your face to determine the placement of your injections. 


The team might advise you to adjust or stop taking certain medications ahead of your treatment because some can increase bruising. They also advise you to stop drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to treatment.
