Botox and Fillers Q & A

What are Botox and fillers?

Botox and fillers are cosmetic injectables that Dr. Wertheim injects beneath your skin to reduce signs of aging.


Botox, Dysport®, and other neuromodulators use botulinum toxin to reduce facial muscle contractions linked with frown, laugh, and smile lines. 


Dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and other filler injectables add volume to sunken areas of your face to improve contours, plump the lips, or tighten loose skin. Doing so gives you the exceptional anti aging results you deserve.

What are the benefits of Botox and fillers?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with Botox and filler injections at Island Medical Laser include:

  • Fewer lines
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Tighter skin
  • Younger-looking skin 
  • Improved facial contours
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Plumper lips
  • More self-confidence

Botox and fillers are fast, simple, painless procedures that produce dramatic anti aging results without surgery or downtime.

Are Botox and fillers right for me?

Dr. Wertheim lets you know if Botox and fillers are right for you after reviewing your medical history, examining your skin, and discussing your desired outcome. He personalizes each aesthetic treatment to maximize results based on your needs and preferences.

What should I expect during Botox and filler injections?

There’s no special preparation needed prior to undergoing Botox and filler injections. Dr. Wertheim numbs the treatment area to reduce any discomfort. He injects Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvéderm, or other aesthetic injectables beneath your skin at targeted areas.

What happens after the procedure?

After injections with Botox, fillers, or both, there’s no downtime. You can resume normal activities right away, but you may notice temporary redness, swelling, or tenderness at the treatment area. Filler results take effect soon after the procedure, while Botox effects often appear within a few days.

Younger-looking results associated with cosmetic injections often last a few months for neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, etc.) or 6-18 months or longer for dermal fillers, depending on the type of fillers you receive. Repeat injections allow you to maintain exceptional results long-term.
