What happens during Botox and dermal filler injections?

Botox and dermal filler injections are performed at the office. To ease pain, the team may apply a topical numbing agent before administering your injection.
Botox injections take only a few minutes. Your dermal filler injections may take a bit longer to ensure you get the best results.
When will I see results from Botox and dermal filler injections?
You can expect an immediate improvement in your look after dermal filler injections. However, it may take 24-48 hours until you notice improvements after Botox injections.
How long do Botox and dermal fillers last?
Botox injections keep the lines and wrinkles away for 3-4 months. The length of time your dermal fillers lasts depends on the type of filler used, but they can keep you looking young and fresh for anywhere from a few months to more than a year.
Once you notice the effects of your Botox or dermal fillers wearing off, the team at Philadelphia Women's Health & Wellness suggests you contact the office to schedule your next set of injections.
