What are Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers are injectables that reduce skin imperfections, including common signs of aging.
Botox is an injection containing botulinum toxin type A. This substance relaxes facial muscles and diminishes lines caused by frowning, laughing, and smiling. Botox can also reduce excessive underarm sweating, migraines, lazy eye, and eye twitching.
LA Medical Clinic Inc uses dermal fillers, including Juvéderm® products, to add volume to treated skin and reduce wrinkles, laxity, and asymmetry. The practice offers the following Juvéderm® products: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC.
What are the benefits of Botox and fillers?
Your LA Medical Clinic provider may recommend Botox, fillers, or both of these aesthetic injections to help you reap the following benefits:

- Enhanced facial symmetry
- Younger-looking skin
- Plumper lips
- Healthier skin
- Increased collagen and elastin production
- Greater self-confidence
Botox and fillers are simple, painless treatments that offer superior results without invasive procedures or downtime.
Am I a candidate for Botox and fillers?
To determine if Botox, fillers, or both of these aesthetic injectables are right for you, the LA Medical Clinic team discusses your aesthetic goals and medical history. They then examine your skin before customizing a treatment plan.
What should I expect when receiving Botox and fillers?
Your cosmetic specialist first cleans the treatment area and numbs your skin as needed to eliminate discomfort. They gently inject Botox or dermal fillers underneath your skin to enhance its appearance.
Each treatment might last about 15-30 minutes, or longer in some cases, though every patient has unique needs. Injectables make excellent lunchtime treatments.
What happens after Botox and filler injections?
After receiving Botox and fillers, you can resume a typical daily routine immediately. However, temporary side effects include redness, tenderness, redness, and swelling. You may ice the treatment area if needed to reduce such side effects, but avoid rubbing the treatment area.
Results may appear immediately after receiving fillers, but the effects of Botox usually take several days to become visible. Botox lasts about 3-5 months, and dermal fillers can last 6-18 months or longer. See the LA Medical Clinic team when it’s time for repeat Botox and filler injections or receive additional anti-aging treatments.
