Botox & Fillers Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox is an injectable prescription solution derived from a natural form of botulinum toxin. When Elizabeth injects Botox into specific points across your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the outer corners of your eyes, it temporarily reduces muscle movement. As a result, the following become less noticeable.

  • Horizontal lines on your forehead
  • Vertical creases between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes

Botox targets the underlying muscles in the upper portion of your face to temporarily reduce muscle movement. In the hands of a skilled medical professional like Elizabeth, Botox allows you to make your usual facial expressions, but you look like a younger version of yourself doing so. 

Essential Bella also offers Dysport® and Xeomin®, which work in similar ways to Botox. Elizabeth recommends the treatment that’s best for you. 

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are injectable solutions that help plump, firm, and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles. Essential Bella offers men and women the many options of Juvéderm® facial fillers, including:

  • Juvéderm XC for lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth
  • Juvéderm VOLUMA® XC for cheek volume
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC for lip volume and parentheses lines around your nose and mouth

Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid — a substance your body produces naturally when you’re younger but less as you age. Juvéderm with hyaluronic acid replenishes moisture and lost volume, so your skin appears lifted and more supple, as well as diminishing lines and wrinkles. 

In addition to the Juvéderm collection of fillers, Essential Bella offers:

  • Sculptra® Aesthetic to stimulate your skin’s collagen production
  • Radiesse® for more volume in your face or hands
  • Belotero Balance® to smooth stubborn, etched-in lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth

When you visit Essential Bella for dermal fillers, Elizabeth customizes your treatment, so you look natural and rejuvenated, not artificial and overdone. She also uses fillers for the Y LIFT® minimally invasive face-lift procedure for instant results. 

What is a Y LIFT?

A Y LIFT is a patented, in-office procedure that delivers instant, dramatic, anti-aging results. A Y LIFT customized to your facial structure can lift and accentuate your cheekbones, fill in the area under your eyes, and define your jawline without surgery, incisions, or downtime. Instead, Elizabeth uses a special titanium instrument to lift your facial muscles.

Once she lifts your facial muscles to where they were when you were younger, you receive hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to hold the muscles in place. The muscle and hyaluronic acid fillers work together to provide lift and prevent sagging. The Y LIFT can last 2-4 years.
