Botox And Fillers Q & A

How do Botox and fillers work?

To achieve a dramatic “liquid face-lift” effect, you can get Botox and fillers. Both types of injectables are highly beneficial for smoothing your skin and revitalizing your more youthful appearance. But they each work differently. Check out what Botox and fillers do. 


Botox — called a “neuromodulator” — affects the way muscles work. Upon injection, the purified botulinum serum in Botox quickly starts blocking signals that lead to muscle contractions. As a result, muscles become temporarily paralyzed, which allows your skin to smooth out. 

Because Botox takes effect only on targeted muscles, all surrounding muscles function normally. You won’t have to worry about a “frozen” appearance. 


Dermal fillers are clinically designed to restore and replenish volume. They can even add plumpness to areas where you need more volume. 

Some of the most popular fillers contain hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules to help keep cells hydrated for natural-looking (and feeling) plumpness. 

What can Botox and fillers treat?

You can get either Botox or fillers as standalone treatments, or you can get both types of injectables during your treatment. In general, Dr. Carlton uses Botox to treat imperfections on the top portion of your face, while he reserves fillers for the bottom portion of your face.

As an example, your Botox treatment from LoneStar Bariatrics is beneficial for minimizing the appearance of:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (near your eyes)
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows

If you’re getting fillers, Dr. Carlton helps you select just the right type of filler to:

  • Plump your lips
  • Lift and contour your cheeks
  • Fill in lines and grooves around your mouth, like nasolabial folds

Dr. Carlton may be able to use Botox and fillers to help enhance other areas, too. Your Botox and fillers treatment from LoneStar Bariatrics is entirely customized for your unique needs. 

Are Botox and fillers permanent?

Botox and fillers are both temporary treatments, although they are very long-lasting. Dr. Carlton finds that Botox injections can provide superior results for as long as 3-4 months.

Dermal fillers can last for about 12-24 months, although it just depends on which brand you choose and the area where it’s injected. When you come in to LoneStar Bariatrics for your consultation, Dr. Carlton can let you know about how long your specific injectable service should last.
