Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are safe and effective cosmetic injections that rejuvenate your look without surgery or downtime. Dr. Briones is an anti-aging expert and provides many therapies to help you look and feel your best.

She offers Botox and fillers to address the more visible signs of aging, namely facial lines and wrinkles. In addition to restoring a more youthful look, her Botox and filler injections may also prevent new lines and creases from forming. 

Depending on your aesthetic goals and beauty needs, Dr. Briones may recommend Botox, fillers, or both. 

How does Botox work?

Botox, or botulinum rejuvenation, works by addressing the underlying cause of your dynamic wrinkles, which develop from making certain facial expressions repeatedly. When you squint, furrow, or frown, your facial muscles create grooves that cause the skin to fold.

As you get older, your skin thins and loses some of its strength and elasticity. These structural changes make it harder for your skin to smooth itself out after folding, creating more permanent lines.

Botox injections temporarily stop the muscle movements under your skin that create the lines and creases. Dr. Briones uses Botox to smooth out crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. 

She also offers Botox injections to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating. 

How do fillers work?

Fillers are a gel-like cosmetic injection that adds volume under your skin to smooth out lines and creases and accentuate your natural features. Volume loss is another factor that contributes to the development of lines and wrinkles, which occurs from a decrease in the layer of subcutaneous fat under your skin.

Without the support, your skin loosens and sags, creating static wrinkles. Fillers restore this lost volume to give you a more youthful look.

In addition to smoothing out lines and creases, fillers also plump up thin lips, enhance sunken cheeks, and fill in depressed acne scars. 

At Briones Weight Loss Center, Dr. Briones uses the Juvéderm® line of fillers. 

How long do Botox and fillers last?

Botox and fillers are temporary cosmetic injections. You can expect your Botox to keep you looking young and fresh for up to four months and your fillers for six or more months.

Dr. Briones recommends you schedule your next cosmetic injection appointment as soon as you notice the effects of your treatment wearing off. Repeating your Botox and filler injections keeps you looking young and prevents new lines and wrinkles from forming.
