Botox and Fillers Q & A

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is a cosmetic filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that’s found in your body. Over time, your skin loses elasticity and the fat underneath your skin begins to migrate downward, leaving behind sunken skin. With Juvéderm, Dr. Meisenberg is able to restore volume to the following areas:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • The parentheses lines around your nose and mouth

In addition to restoring volume, the filler can also reduce the wrinkles that form in these areas, such as the vertical lines around your lips.

What is Botox®?

Botox works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that contract, forming wrinkles. Botox is most effective in the following areas:

  • The lines around your eyes, or crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows

When will I see results?

With both Juvéderm and Botox, you’ll notice immediate results, though it may take the Botox up to 48 hours for the full effect.

Another important thing to note is that each of these treatments is very quick -- you’ll be in and out of Dr. Meisenberg’s office in very little time -- and there’s no downtime after the injections. There may be some redness or minor swelling and/or bruising at the site of the injections, but these side effects typically resolve themselves in a day or two.

How many treatments do I need?

The answer to this question depends on the areas you want to treat. During your initial consultation with Dr. Meisenberg, he sits down with you to discuss your goals, and then he comes up with a treatment plan. Typically, Dr. Meisenberg can accomplish what you want in just one visit, but it may take several injections to achieve your desired results.

To maintain your younger-looking skin, you’ll need to come back periodically for touch-up treatments. Botox typically lasts four months, while Juvéderm lasts one to two years.

If you’re unsure about undergoing laser therapies for your skin, Juvéderm and Botox are ideal solutions that deliver immediate results.
