A: Both Botox and dermal fillers are safe procedures with no adverse long-term consequences. Botox and fillers have been used cosmetically since the late 1980s. The main adverse effects with the neuromodulators Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport and fillers Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, and Belotero come from the injections themselves. As with any injection, you can feel a little sore or bruised for a couple of days. Other than that, a poor outcome is almost always due to an inexpert injector. One of the great things about neuromodulators and fillers is that they’re temporary, so whenever you wish, you can go back to baseline (your starting point). That allows you to experiment with a refreshed, new look without having to commit to it long-term. One caveat: After getting a beautiful improvement with Botox and fillers, if you do stop them, your normal appearance might bother you more than it did before you got used to seeing a more refreshed look. However, you can always start your treatments again! Please consult a board-certified dermatologist who is an expert using Botox and fillers to create a beautiful liquid facelift.
