Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are two different injectable medications with the common goal of giving you a more youthful appearance with fewer wrinkles, folds, and sunkenness.


Botox is a branded injectable that fights wrinkles and has a number of other uses. The primary ingredient, botulinum toxin, paralyzes your muscles to stop them from automatically flexing, which keeps you from developing facial lines and other undesirable features.


Fillers are different from Botox. They’re medications with gellike consistencies that add small amounts of artificial volume where you’ve lost subdermal fat in your face. They can fix wrinkles, but they can also make your face appear more plump and vibrant. 

How can I change my appearance with Botox or fillers?

There are several changes you can make to the way your face looks with a few well-placed injections of Botox or fillers. If you want to make multiple changes at once, the team at Advanced Implant Dentistry & MedSpa of North Shore can add both to your treatment plan.

You can get Botox injections to fix:

  • A gummy smile
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Chin creases

With dermal fillers, you can fix:

  • Thin lips
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Sunken temples
  • Mouth wrinkles
  • Other wrinkles and folds
  • Bony hands
  • Sunken scars

You might have several options for fillers with different ingredients to hold their shape. The team selects the right kind for the results you want to see. 

Are the results of Botox and fillers permanent?

Botox and fillers aren’t permanent, but you can keep the results for a long time with repeated injections when you need them. Botox lasts for an average of four months and sometimes up to six. 

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, last longer. Depending on the kind of filler you get, they could last for one year, two years, or even longer. 

Some fillers contain ingredients that promote collagen growth within your skin, and the collagen stays in place long after the filler dissolves. As long as you follow your provider’s instructions for aftercare, your new look stays in place and looks remarkably natural.
