Botox and Fillers FAQ

Botox and Dysport are injectable wrinkle treatments that are made from a highly purified protein called botulinum toxin. Aesthetics professionals around the world have safely used Botox for more than 30 years to smooth out:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead furrows
Each Botox treatment lasts about three to four months.
n your skin. People of all ages can have acne, although it’s particularly common during adolescence. Acne can be highly distressing because it affects the face, but it’s frequently painful as well and often causes permanent scarring.
Your skin is continually shedding dead cells. When you have acne, the dead skin cells become trapped in a special oil produced by your skin called sebum. The sebum and dead skin cells create a plug that blocks a pore, which a skin bacteria called P. acnes can then invade.
Acne’s bacteria breed rapidly inside the blocked pore, which then becomes red, swollen, and painful. Infections that go deep into the tissues can result in further problems like acne nodules or cysts.
As long as you’re over 18 years old, you can use Botox and Dysport as soon as you notice fine lines on your forehead or around your eyes.
Many younger people turn to Botox as part of their “prejuvenation” routine. However, you can start at any age, including 70 and up.
Botox smooths wrinkles caused by the dynamic muscles that create expressions, such as squinting, frowning, and raising eyebrows.
The purified neurotoxin blocks nerve signals to your muscles that tell them to scrunch up and crease your face. Your muscles stay relaxed, and your skin remains smooth, while you can still make natural and attractive expressions.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that restore lost volume to your midface and fill in the shallow and deep lines of wrinkles and creases. Dermal fillers come in a variety of consistencies so that you can make both subtle and dramatic improvements, such as:
- Filling in fine lines and wrinkles
- Improving the look of deep creases
- Restoring lost volume to your midface
- Plumping up your lips
- Smoothing out tear troughs
Your Cool Blue, LLC Laser & Aesthetics provider chooses the right dermal filler type and consistency based on your facial anatomy.
The two main types of dermal fillers are hyaluronic-acid-based fillers and collagen stimulators. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers work by immediately restoring volume to your face. When you’re younger, your skin naturally produces HA to attract and retain moisture. The dermal fillers replace the HA you’ve lost to aging.
You notice a difference right after your treatment as your skin becomes plumper, smoother, and more lifted. The HA fillers last from six to 18 months.
The collagen stimulators work by injecting microparticles into your skin that stimulate new collagen and elastin production. Over the following weeks to months, your skin rebuilds itself to be thicker, stronger, and more resilient. Collagen stimulators last for up to three years.
