Botox & Fillers Q & A

Botox and Juvéderm fillers are cosmetic injectables that reduce signs of aging so you can look and feel years younger.


Botox is an injectable made of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks nerve impulses to facial muscles and causes them to relax. It reduces lines caused by smiling, frowning, and squinting, including:

  • Crow’s-feet lines
  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines
  • Lines near the mouth
  • A cobblestoned chin

Botox and other neurotoxin treatments are FDA-approved and are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States.


FDA-approved Juvéderm injectable fillers are also known as wrinkle fillers. Examples of Juvéderm products include Juvéderm® XC, Voluma®, Volbella®, and Vollure™. These fillers enhance antiaging by:

  • Smoothing lines around the mouth and nose
  • Diminishing vertical lip lines
  • Enhancing and restoring volume to sunken-in temples or cheeks
  • Plumping and enhancing the lips
  • Improving facial symmetry
  • Smoothing out chin creases

When Juvéderm was tested in a clinical setting among people who didn’t know which filler they received, almost 90% preferred Juvéderm.

Before receiving Botox or Juvéderm injections, you’ll meet with a medical provider at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center for a thorough consultation to determine which antiaging procedure, or combination of techniques, best matches your needs.

Prior to the injections, the Genesis team cleans your face and can numb the area, so you feel comfortable during treatment.

They inject your face at strategic points using a thin needle or a thin blunt tipped cannula. The procedure is quick and painless.

After filler injections, you’ll notice results immediately, but visible results from Botox may take 3-7 days to appear.

After Botox or Juvéderm injections, you may notice the following temporary symptoms:

  • Swelling at the injection site
  • Redness
  • Mild bruising

There’s no downtime after cosmetic injections, so you can resume normal daily activities right away. Your provider may ask you to avoid strenuous activities until the next day.

The length of time your results last varies, as everybody is different. Botox might last 3-6 months and fillers can last 6-18 months or longer, depending on the type of product used.

When you’re ready to look years younger* using noninvasive treatments that produce dramatic results, call Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center to schedule a complimentary consultation or book an appointment online today.

*Individual results may vary.
