Levit and Dr. Lilla Paragh are talented and experienced cosmetic surgeon specialists who can explain how these injectable therapies can help you appear younger. 

During your informative consultation, he can review how Botox and fillers work and how they may be components of a personalized treatment regimen to help you meet your aesthetic goals. 

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator, a substance that alters nerve signals to decrease muscle movement. Tiny amounts of this toxin are safely injected into precise muscles to reduce their movement, allowing dynamic wrinkles to relax and smooth out. 

More than 50 million patients worldwide have enjoyed the results of Botox injections to eliminate signs of aging like smile lines, forehead wrinkles, and more. 

What are dermal fillers?

Fillers — often called dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers — are various substances injected into the skin to create fullness or volume. These substances fill in deep lines and troughs to smooth out your skin’s appearance. 

They’re highly effective when injected in precise locations and can add volume to facial lines, lips, nose lines, and even improve the appearance of scars. 

Which treatment is the best choice for you?

Trained and talented specialists like Dr. Levit and Dr. Lilla Paragh know how to use Botox and the numerous filler products available to give you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 

To help you determine which option is the best choice for you, Dr. Levit consults with you personally to discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. He can then recommend which treatments will work best to treat the specific issues you want to address. 

  • Botox — temporarily paralyzes specific muscles around your face to allow dynamic wrinkles and lines to relax and fade over time. It’s ideal for fine lines and small wrinkles. Botox injections should be repeated about every 3-4 months to maintain the best results. 
  • Dermal fillers — use naturally occurring substances and other safe materials to add volume under thin or hollow skin and smooth out deep wrinkles. Fillers are also great for scar treatment, plumping thin lips, and giving your face a fuller, healthier appearance. Depending on the product, fillers last anywhere from 6-24 months before needing touchup injections.

Because they work differently and address different concerns, Dr. Levit also may recommend getting a combination of Botox and filler injections. There are numerous Neurotoxins available that have different lasting effects
