Fillers & Botox Q & A

How do fillers and Botox work?

Fillers and Botox can help you to achieve a dramatic “liquid face-lift” effect. 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 fillers and Botox 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 fillers and Botox treat?

You can get Botox or fillers as standalone treatments, or you can get both types of injectables during your treatment. In general, the providers at Riesberg Institute use Botox to treat imperfections on the top portion of your face, while they reserve fillers for the bottom portion of your face. 

As an example, your Botox treatment from Riesberg Institute 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, your provider 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 

Your provider may be able to use fillers and Botox to help enhance other areas, too. Your fillers and Botox treatment at Riesberg Institute is entirely customized for your unique needs. 

Are fillers and Botox permanent?

Fillers and Botox are both temporary treatments, although they are very long-lasting. The team at Riesberg Institute 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 depends on which brand you choose and the area where it’s injected. When you visit Riesberg Institute for your consultation, your provider can let you know about how long your specific injectable service should last.
