Botox & Fillers Q & A

Elk Grove Dermatology

What can Botox and dermal fillers do for me?

As you age, your body slows down the production of collagen and elastin, two important components of healthy, youthful-looking skin. As a result, your skin begins to sag, and you develop wrinkles, facial folds, and frown lines.

When these common skin imperfections start affecting your confidence and leave you unhappy with your overall appearance, Dr. Polisky recommends Botox and dermal fillers to reduce the severity of wrinkles and folds and to restore lost volume.

What’s the difference between Botox and dermal fillers?

Botox is a safe and effective injectable treatment that can improve the look of severe forehead lines and crow’s feet. The prescription medicine in the Botox injection temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for causing frown lines and deep wrinkles. Following the injection, these muscles begin to relax, reducing wrinkle severity and taking years off the appearance of your skin.

These injections give you long-lasting results. Dr. Polisky can recommend a timeline for maintenance treatments to help you maintain your younger-looking skin.

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that can add volume to your lips and face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Fillers differ based on the areas you’re treating and how long the results can last. Dr. Polisky offers several dermal filler options depending on your specific needs:

Thin Fillers

Thin fillers contain hyaluronic acid and are ideal for plumping lips, reducing the appearance of under-eye bags, and enhancing your cheek contour. Dr. Polisky offers Restylane products to achieve natural-looking results that can last up to six months.

Thick Fillers

Thick fillers, like Radiesse, are effective in treating deep lines that run alongside your nose and into the corners of your lips. Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, a natural substance found in your teeth and bones.

Radiesse can also reduce the severity of a receding chin, jowl folds, and the marionette lines that form around your mouth when your smile. Thick fillers offer natural-looking, long-lasting results for up to 12 months.

Global Fillers

Sculptra® is an injectable liquid that adds volume to your face. Results look natural, giving you a younger-looking, softer appearance. The benefits from Sculptra can last as long as two years.

Global fillers are also effective in triggering the production of natural collagen to consistently increase your facial volume and smooth out your skin.

Which filler is right for me?

Dr. Polisky can determine the best course of treatment based on your cosmetic goals. He creates a custom treatment plan to ensure you achieve a natural look.
