Botox and Fillers Q&A
What are Botox and fillers?
Botox and fillers, including Juvederm®, Botox, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Juveau®, are some of the many cosmetic injectables available at Rise Aesthetics. They reduce unwelcome signs of aging, helping you look and feel years younger.
Botox, Dysport, Juveau, and Xeomin are injectables made of botulinum toxin, which helps reduce the tension of facial muscles responsible for laughing, frowning, and smile lines by smoothing the skin and taking years off of your appearance. Alternatively, dermal fillers add facial volume to aging areas and lines, rejuvenating the skin for a more youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of Botox and Dermal Fillers?
Some of the many benefits you can experience with Botox and fillers include:
- Fewer lines and wrinkles
- Improved facial contours
- Better facial symmetry
- Plumper lips
- Younger-looking appearance
- Tighter, lifted skin
- More self-confidence
The process of getting Botox and fillers is virtually painless. The procedure is fast and produces dramatic anti-aging results.
Are Botox and Dermal Fillers right for me?
To find out if you’re a candidate for Botox and fillers at Rise Aesthetics, your provider discusses your medical history and desired outcome. They examine your skin in areas of concern and ask about your preferences before personalizing a treatment that’s best for you.
What should I expect during the procedure?
Your Rise Aesthetics specialist cleans your skin and, for some procedures, numbs the treatment area before injecting just beneath your skin using a very fine needle.
You might receive Botox or other botulinum-based injections, dermal fillers, or combinations of these procedures to achieve the best possible outcome.
What happens after Botox and Dermal Filler injections?
After Botox and filler injections, you may notice some swelling, tenderness, or redness at the injection site that soon subsides. Avoid touching the treatment area for a day or two. You will notice results from dermal fillers right away. The effects of Botox appear within days.
Results from Botox could last for several months, and dermal fillers usually last up to 18 months or longer before repeat injections are needed to maintain long-lasting anti-aging results.

Botox cosmetic is the original neuromodulator in the aesthetics industry. Botox targets the muscles responsible for the majority of lines and wrinkles – repeated contractions over years.

Jeuveau, also known as NEWTOX is nearly molecularly identical to Botox. The makers of Jeaveau have modernized the manufacturing process to create a more purified end product. Jeaveau is expected to have a slightly faster onset of action and up to 2 to 4 weeks longer duration compared to Botox. Jeaveau is the first product from Evolus bringing a new look to the aesthetics industry.￼

Xeomin was developed to be a more purified version of Botox. Also called “Naked Botox“, Xeomin contains only the active ingredient (Botulinumtoxin A), while the formulation of Botox includes various protective proteins surrounding the active molecule. The intent of this purified formulation is to lessen the chance of developing resistance (antibodies) that can limit the intended effects.￼￼ The onset of action and duration are typically the same as Botox.
