Botox and Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

As you age, your face loses its natural elasticity and collagen production slows down. This causes a loss of volume, your skin starts to sag, and you develop wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers expand your skin to eliminate fine lines and add volume to the treatment area. Fillers are also effective at plumping your lips and filling out sagging skin on your hands.

There are several types of dermal fillers available, including Juvéderm and Radiesse, to enhance your natural beauty. Dr. Sherman also uses Botox injections to eliminate crow’s feet and frown lines. Dermal filler treatments offer long-lasting results and require no recovery time.

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable drug that temporarily paralyzes or weakens the muscles responsible for frown lines in the brow line and around your mouth. Botox is also effective at treating excessive sweating in your underarms, hands, and feet.

The effects of Botox last for several months, as the treatment smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and eliminates fine lines. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Results typically last 4-6 months.

What are Juvéderm and Radiesse?

Juvéderm and Radiesse are two of the most common dermal fillers.


Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body naturally produces that provides your skin with nutrients and moisture. The acid also helps to add volume to your face where it lacks collagen.

Dr. Sherman uses Juvéderm to create fuller lips and eliminates small wrinkles around your mouth and cheeks. The results of Juvéderm are immediate and can last a year or longer before you need additional treatments.


Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler made up of calcium hydroxylapatite. Dr. Sherman injects the filler under your skin to add volume. Radiesse also stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, which provides long-term volume enhancement.

Dr. Sherman uses Radiesse to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines around your cheeks, eyes, and mouth. He may also recommend Radiesse treatments on your hands to eliminate wrinkles and minimize visible tendons and veins.

Are dermal fillers right for me?

Dr. Sherman reviews your medical history and discusses your cosmetic goals to ensure dermal filler treatments are right for you. Dermal fillers are effective in improving wrinkles and fine lines, but he may recommend other treatments to help you achieve your specific goals.
