Fillers Q & A

What are fillers?

  • Juvéderm®
  • Juvéderm Voluma®

Which filler is best for you may depend on your ultimate aesthetic goals. Dr. Paikal and his team are aesthetic experts and can design a plan that helps you get your desired results.

What beauty concerns can fillers address?

By adding volume in just the right places, the fillers used at Westwood Laser can fix almost any beauty concern. Some of the most common uses of fillers include:

  • Plumping up thin lips
  • Adding volume to sunken cheeks
  • Smoothing out lines and wrinkles
  • Removing shadows under eyes

Fillers can also be used to fix facial deformities and fill in recessed acne scars.

What should I expect when getting filler injections?

Filler injections at Westwood Laser are conducted by trained registered nurses and physicians assistants. The team at Westwood Laser discusses your filler plan and approach during your initial consultation.

Your specialist at Westwood Laser begins your injections by first cleansing your skin and, if needed, applying an anesthetic. You may feel some discomfort during filler injection, but the pain is tolerable and anesthetic isn’t always necessary.

Once you’re prepped and ready, your specialist injects your fillers into precise areas and massages them into place to give you the desired look. Injection times vary depending on the number of injections you’re receiving, but shouldn’t take more than an hour.

You should notice an improvement in your look immediately following your injections. With good skin care practices, fillers can help you maintain your enhanced appearance for up to a year.

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that’s FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s-feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily stopping the movement of the muscle under your skin that creates the lines.

One of the most popular nonsurgical beauty treatments in the United States, Botox can keep you looking refreshed for up to four months.

Fillers and Botox are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that can accentuate your natural look quickly and without downtime. To schedule a filler or Botox consultation, call Westwood Laser or book an appointment online today.
