Botox and Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are Botox® and dermal fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers can work together to give you a younger-looking appearance. These nonsurgical methods of treatment make this combination a popular choice for anyone wanting to turn back the hands of time.

Here’s how they work:


Botox is made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that creates a neurotoxin solution, which blocks the signaling between your muscles and brain cells. Botox causes your muscles to stop contracting, which allows your skin to soften and help eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid that fills in spaces where you lack volume. This gel-like substance restores plumpness to give your face a more youthful look. Some dermal fillers can also stimulate collagen production to enhance your look for a year or longer.

When using Botox and dermal fillers together, you can experience highly successful results.

What can Botox and dermal fillers correct?

When combining Botox and dermal fillers, the team at Allegra Dental Center can:

  • Smooth out your frown lines
  • Help your crow’s feet disappear
  • Flatten your forehead lines
  • Relax the lines between your eyebrows
  • Plump up your lips
  • Contour your jawline and cheeks
  • Fill in deep lines on your lower face

Your provider caters to your aesthetic goals to give you the outcome you’re looking for.

How long do the results of Botox and dermal fillers last?

Botox and dermal fillers offer different lasting results. For example, Botox can keep your muscles relaxed for as long as 4-6 months. This FDA-approved injectable is safe for repeat treatments, so you don’t have to worry if you want to visit Allegra Dental Center once you notice that the results are wearing off.

Dermal fillers can last much longer. Some types provide results for 12-24 months, depending on the brand and formula you choose. Just like with Botox, once you notice the appearance of lines and wrinkles again, you can safely return for another session at Allegra Dental Center.

Both treatments only take about 10-15 minutes per session and require very little downtime afterward, so you can return to your normal, daily routine.
