Botox and Fillers Q&A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox® and fillers are two injectable products that provide temporary cosmetic results. During your initial consultation at Elite Gynecology, the team informs you about the products and helps you decide on which one can help you to accomplish your goals.

Botox and fillers are different products with distinct anti-aging attributes. Here’s how they work:


Botox is a neuromodulator that stops communication between corresponding muscles and motor nerves. That disruption causes targeted muscles to stop flexing while the product is active, smoothing out targeted creases. The results can last for 3-4 months at a time.


Fillers have gel-like textures and work by increasing dermal volume. They sit beneath your skin and add artificial plumpness before dissolving over time. The results can last for six months to one year or longer, depending on the type of filler used.

What can I expect from Botox and fillers?

You can use Botox and fillers together or separately to minimize wrinkles or restore lost volume in the face and achieve a more youthful look.

A few of the numerous goals you can accomplish by using one or both products in your treatment plan at Elite Gynecology include:

  • Fewer prominent wrinkles (nasolabial folds)
  • Fewer fine lines ( forehead lines, crows feet)
  • Fewer chin dimples
  • Plumper cheeks
  • Plumper lips
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Less noticeable scars
  • Decreased lower lid shadow

While both Botox and fillers can treat wrinkles, they treat different types. Botox focuses on dynamic wrinkles, which appear and get deeper when using your facial muscles to make expressions. Fillers treat static wrinkles that occur due to loss of structural collagen and sagging.

How should I prepare for my Botox or fillers appointment?

To prepare you for treatment with Botox and fillers at Elite Gynecology, you must come in for a consultation with the team. At this appointment, you discuss your treatment expectations, goals, current health, and any medications you take. 

The team ensures you’re healthy enough to undergo the procedure and that you have reasonable expectations for the results.

Ahead of your appointment, the team may give you a few instructions to minimize discomfort, bruising, and the potential for complications. They may advise you to pause the use of any blood-thinning medications or supplements, stop smoking, or clean off any makeup before you arrive.
