Botox & Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

lip anatomy

Botulinum toxin and fillers are two main types of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that minimize signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging skin. At Tampa Bay Eye and Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Creekmore, a skilled surgeon, offers botulinum toxin and filler injections using the highest-quality products.

What is the difference between Botox and fillers?

Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers are both injectable treatments that don’t require surgery or downtime for recovery. However, there are some significant differences between the two treatments.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin injections primarily treat dynamic wrinkles, which include the lines that appear around your eyes when you smile, known as crow’s feet, as well as those between your brows. These injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them when they contract. Botulinum toxin also has medical uses, including treating migraine headaches.

Dr. Creekmore performs injections with leading botulinum toxin products, including well-established brands like Botox and Dysport.

Fillers

Nasolabial fold filler

Also called dermal fillers or facial fillers, these injections contain a hydrating gel called hyaluronic acid. Fillers smooth out wrinkles by restoring lost volume beneath your skin’s surface. Fillers can enhance your appearance in many ways, including plumping your lips and rounding out sunken cheeks.

At Tampa Bay Eye and Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Creekmore offers top-of-the-line fillers by Juvéderm and Restylane.

What are the anti-aging effects of Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers can improve upon your natural good looks in many ways, including:

  • Reducing crow's feet
  • Diminishing frown lines
  • Plumping lips
  • Smoothing nasolabial folds (marionette lines)
  • Restoring volume to sagging skin
  • Revitalizing a youthful facial contour

Depending on your particular concerns, Dr. Creekmore may recommend fillers, Botox, or both treatments.

What should I expect from a Botox or fillers procedure?

Botox and fillers are quick, in-office treatments that don’t require downtime for recovery, so you can resume normal activities right after your appointment.

After Dr. Creekmore cleans the treatment area, she injects a precise amount of botulinum toxin or filler into strategic areas on your skin. The fillers contain a numbing medication to reduce discomfort.

You may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, but these side effects typically fade within a few days or weeks.
