Dermal Fillers Q & A

Are dermal fillers the same as Botox®?

Dermal fillers and Botox are both cosmetic injectables, but they aren’t the same.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers contain ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA). These substances add volume to sagging skin, make your facial features more symmetrical, and plump up your lips and cheeks. 


Botox contains a safe form of botulinum toxin. When injected into your skin, it stops nerve signals from reaching specific facial muscles, causing them to relax. 

Botox makes your skin look smoother and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet.

After an in-office exam and a discussion of your goals, Dr. Mozayeni makes personalized treatment recommendations.

What types of issues do dermal fillers treat?

Dr. Mozayeni uses dermal fillers to treat various cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Thin lips
  • Under eye bags
  • Severe facial wrinkles and skin folds
  • Sagging skin

Sometimes, Dr. Mozayeni uses dermal fillers to treat wrinkly skin on the back of the hands and neck (decolletage). 

What does treatment with dermal fillers involve?

Before recommending dermal fillers, Dr. Mozayeni reviews your medical records and asks about your treatment goals. 

Tell her about your medications and if you have allergies or underlying skin issues. Certain drugs, like blood thinners, increase the risk of bleeding and bruising, so you might need to stop taking them before your procedure. 

Similarly, dermal fillers can exacerbate certain skin issues, so Dr. Mozayeni might recommend an alternative treatment if you have dermatitis and other skin conditions. 

If you qualify for dermal filler treatment, Dr. Mozayeni washes your face and applies a topical anesthetic near each injection site. Then, she administers a series of dermal filler injections. You might feel a pinch during this process, but it’s quick and isn’t painful. 

What is recovery like after getting dermal fillers?

After getting dermal fillers, it’s normal to experience mild pain, redness, and swelling at each injection site. You can apply an ice pack to these areas to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. 

Most people return to work and other activities immediately but avoid direct sunlight and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. 

If your symptoms continue for more than a few days or indicate an allergic reaction, contact Dr. Mozayeni immediately.
