Botox & Dermal Fillers

How do Botox and dermal fillers work?

Your skin is unique to you. And that’s why Dr. Chirino offers multiple types of cosmetic injectables. 

Botox and other neuromodulators

Do you have wrinkles where your face is most expressive? If frown lines, crow’s feet, or bunny lines are aging your appearance, talk to Dr. Chirino about neuromodulators. These quick, easy injectables temporarily freeze the muscles beneath your wrinkles, smoothing them so you look younger, happier, and more relaxed. 

Some of the neuromodulators available include:

  • Botox®
  • Dysport®
  • Xeomin®

Dermal fillers

Not all wrinkles are caused by facial expressions. Some changes come as your facial skin hollows and sags with age. In these cases, dermal fillers can restore your facial volume so you get smooth, plump, youthful-looking skin. Injectable dermal fillers are effective for filling out your cheeks and lips, lifting sagging jowls, and smoothing wrinkles. 

Some of the dermal fillers available at Dr. Chirino’s office include:

  • Juvéderm®
  • Belotero®
  • Radiesse®
  • Sculptra®
  • Restylane®

PRP fillers

If you want something more natural, PRP may be your best option. By injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from a small sample of your own blood, Dr. Chirino kickstarts your body’s natural rejuvenation process, smoothing and tightening your skin. 

How long do Botox, dermal fillers, and PRP fillers last?

The longevity of each of these treatments depends on your unique skin. That said, Dr. Chirino is able to give you an idea of what you can expect based on the cosmetic injectable you choose. 

Generally, neuromodulators last three months or more. Dermal fillers can last three months to a year or more. And the results from PRP fillers take months to appear as they rejuvenate your skin over time, but they last until your body’s natural aging processes undo them. 

Regardless of the treatment you choose, Dr. Chirino offers touch-up treatments as needed to help you maintain your youthful appearance. 

What should I expect during a cosmetic injectable appointment?

Part of the beauty of cosmetic injectables comes from the quickness and ease of these treatments. Neuromodulators and dermal filler appointments take just 15 minutes per session and you can continue on with your day immediately after. 

PRP filler appointments take longer because Dr. Chirino uses a centrifuge to derive the PRP from a very small sample of your blood; however, this treatment is still designed for your convenience and comes with minimal downtime.
