What is the difference between BOTOX and dermal fillers?

Both BOTOX and dermal fillers are designed to reduce the signs of aging, but they do it in different ways. BOTOX is used to freeze the muscles that cause facial movement, which over time and continued use, result in crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the lines between your eyebrows.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill out the skin underneath the wrinkle, using plumpness to minimize the visibility of wrinkles. Today, both BOTOX and several dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and RADIESSE® offer people the opportunity to reduce the signs of aging. When used together, they can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fill in fine lines, restore facial volume, and even plump up the lips.Reducing the telltale signs of aging instantly makes your face look younger and fresher. What’s more, while you should see some immediate benefit, the results will gradually become more pronounced over the few days after your treatment.

How long does BOTOX last?

BOTOX injections work fast. In fact, the entire procedure usually takes about 10 minutes and you leave Maryland Specialty Group with results you can notice right away that will improve over the next few days. The results from BOTOX usually last between three to six months. When you notice the effects wearing off, schedule a touch-up session with Dr. Debra.

What kinds of dermal fillers are available?

At Maryland Specialty Group, Dr. Debra is committed to delivering you the best results. To do that, he offers a variety of dermal filler options, including:


JUVÉDERM smooths the moderate wrinkles in your face and can last for over a year.


Restylane is also used to fill moderate wrinkles, but it can last up to 15 months. It is ideal for filling out cheek areas.


Radiesse is designed to fill out the deeper wrinkles in your face, like the fold that runs from the corner of your mouth to your nose. Its effects generally last around one year.

How long does it take to recover from cosmetic injections?

Getting dermal fillers or BOTOX is commonly called a lunchtime procedure. That’s because the treatment itself is so quick, virtually painless, and doesn’t leave any notable signs so you can leave your appointment and immediately get on with the rest of your day.
