BOTOX and Dermal Fillers Q & A

by Thomas McHugh, MD

How Does Botox Work?

Botox reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Dr. McHugh injects a small amount of purified botulinum toxin into designated areas, targeting specific muscles.

Botox takes effect immediately, paralyzing muscle movement (which is what causes fine lines and wrinkles). The lack of movement reduces the signs of aging, leading to smoother looking skin.

Dr. McHugh can also use Botox to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, decrease excessive sweating, and eliminate facial spasms.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a form of injectables that restore volume and fullness to your facial features. At McHugh Plastic Surgery, a variety of fillers are available, including:

  • BeloteroⓇ: Dr. McHugh was the first cosmetic surgeon in the area to offer Belotero Balance wrinkle treatment, an innovative dermal filler with double cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It’s safe and effective around the cheeks and eyes.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus: Juvederm Ultra Plus provides volume to deep folds and wrinkles. For those with progressed signs of aging, this dermal filler restores a youthful appearance for up to 12 months
  • Juvederm VollureⓇ XC: Juvederm Vollure XC is the first dermal filler designated for severe wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds. A next-generation hyaluronic acid, it provides results for up to 18 months.
  • Juvederm VolbellaⓇ XC: Juvederm Volbella XC enhances lips and surrounding skin. It increases natural-looking fullness and reduces the appearance of lines around your mouth, including perioral rhytids. Results last up to 12 months.
  • Juvederm VolumaⓇ XC: Juvederm Voluma XC plumps your skin, restoring volume and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also stimulates the natural production of collagen, improving skin’s health. Results last up to 2 years.

Are There Other Injectables?

Beyond dermal fillers and Botox, Dr. McHugh offers other injectables, including DysportⓇ and KybellaⓇ.

Dysport, an alternative to Botox, uses a botulinum toxin to paralyze muscles, reducing skin movement that causes fine lines and wrinkles. It works quickly and effectively, with initial results visible within 24 hours.

Kybella is FDA approved to reduce neck fat from under the chin. Using a specially designed injectable formula, Dr. McHugh can dissolve fat, eliminating your double chin.
