With advancements in anti-aging injectables, you can get your youthful glow back in just one treatment.

With little to no swelling involved with BOTOX® and dermal fillers, you can get your treatment during your lunch break.
While the outcome of smoother skin is the same using both BOTOX and dermal fillers, they work differently.
BOTOX is a type of botulinum injection that paralyzes muscles in your face temporarily. Because your muscles won't clench and stiffen, your skin smooths out, and fine lines and wrinkles are much less noticeable.
Fillers contain various types of ingredients that instantly plump your skin. One of the most common filler ingredients, hyaluronic acid, works by attracting water, which makes your skin plumper and healthier looking.
The best type of dermal filler for your needs depends on your desired outcome, as well as your budget. Dr. Magee provides many options, including:
Because you may benefit from both BOTOX and dermal fillers, Dr. Magee may suggest getting both types of treatments for optimal anti-aging effects.
The amount of discomfort you may experience depends on your pain tolerance and which areas you're having treated. Most men and women report feeling very brief moments of stinging, but some clients don't feel much of anything. You're more likely to have pain and burning in sensitive areas, like around your eyes or mouth.
You can always apply a topical numbing cream or ice the treatment area beforehand to help minimize any discomfort during your session. Remember though, any pain or discomfort you do feel is over within a matter of seconds.
BOTOX starts smoothing out your skin within about 24-48 hours. Usually, you notice improvement with fillers right away, sometimes before you even leave the office (depending on which product you use).
Your younger-looking skin from BOTOX can last up to four months or more. Fillers typically last longer, anywhere from 12-24 months. Both BOTOX and dermal fillers are safe for repeated use. So even when they do wear off, you can repeat your treatment.
