What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical way to enhance the contour of your face, correct minor flaws, and make you look younger. They work by “plumping” the skin and can help with bags around the eyes, thin lips, and lines. 

There are different kinds of fillers, but they are most commonly made using calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and hyaluronic acid, ingredients that moisturize the skin and stimulate the creation of collagen, a protein that is essential for beautiful, youthful looking skin. 

Dermal fillers aren’t just for older patients. More and more, doctors are seeing patients who are under 30 who want dermal fillers, to help prevent wrinkles and lines from forming. 

What is Botox?

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin – Botox is injected into the muscles. It is a neurotoxin, but don’t let this scare you. It is safe to use in cosmetic procedures. It works by “freezing” muscles to reduce wrinkles and lines. 

How do I get fillers or Botox?

Your doctor will be able to advise you if you should get fillers, Botox, or both. Both of these procedures take place in the doctor’s office, in only a few minutes. Most patients report very little pain, but if you are concerned a local anesthetic can be used. The fillers and/or Botox will be used in precise areas so that you get the results you want. 

After your injections, you can resume your normal activities. You may be swollen and tender, and the injection sites may look red, but this will disappear within a few hours. 

Dermal fillers and Botox are safe, effective, and take very little time. If you think dermal fillers or Botox might be right for you, call the Palmdale office of Katayoun Motlagh, MD, today! Call (661) 947-6400 for a consultation.
