Botox and Fillers Q & A

So Cal Body Institute

What causes fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles?

Several factors play a role in fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles developing on your face, but aging is the most common culprit.

Facial aging begins in your twenties. Once you've reached this age range, exposure to ultraviolet light, the repetitive use of facial muscles, and the natural thinning and drying of your skin can lead to collagen and elastin loss.

Those supportive connective tissues are responsible for your skin’s soft texture and youthful appearance. Over time, your facial muscles also weaken, and the effects of gravity become even more pronounced.

If you're ready to reverse the toll that those natural processes have taken on your skin, So Cal Body Institute can help. They offer Botox and dermal filler treatments such as Juvéderm and Restylane to help restore your skin’s youthful complexion.

How is Botox used to improve skin?

Botox is a temporary, common cosmetic treatment used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It targets the nervous system and prevents muscles from contracting by paralyzing them.

 

To treat wrinkles, Botox is injected into the muscles of the face to prevent them from contracting. When the muscles relax, your complexion is far smoother.

Most patients state that their Botox treatment lasts between 3-4 months. Repeated injections can provide long-term results by training the facial muscles to relax, which causes a smooth complexion.

Does Botox hurt?

Botox is relatively painless. It's administered with a tiny needle. Most patients state it feels like a tiny pinch in some areas, but for the most part, they feel nothing at all.

How much is Botox?

The price of Botox is dependent on the areas you’re going to be treating, and how many units you will need to get your muscles to relax. One patient may require more units than another if there are strong muscles in the area of concern.

During your consultation, you will be asked to make facial expressions -- smile, frown, lift eyebrows, etc. -- to gauge how much you will need and what it will cost.

How is Juvéderm used to improve skin?

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are used to boost volume in the face or lips, replenish hyaluronic acid levels, and smooth folds and wrinkles in the face. 

 

Your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but its production can dwindle over time. When Juvéderm is injected into your face, you can see results for up to two years.

How is Restylane used to improve skin?

Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to smooth facial wrinkles and to add volume to the lips and cheeks.

Specially formulated for mid-to-deep dermis injection, Restylane uses hyaluronic acid to improve your skin’s elasticity and to increase volume in areas where it has been lost.

Not all dermal fillers and cosmetic treatments are the same. So Cal Body Institute will work with you to develop the most effective treatment strategy to restore and rejuvenate your skin’s appearance.

How much do fillers cost?

Juvederm and Restylane are sold “per syringe,” but there are considerable discounts if you need to purchase multiple syringes to achieve optimal correction due to aging.
