Injectables and Fillers: Lift MD’s Top 5 Questions


Botox. Juvederm. Voluma.  The beauty world’s triad of agelessness. Perhaps you’re considering one or all three? (Yes! You can get all three injected in one day!) Or maybe you have been injected but still have some questions?  The team at Lift MD gathered their top 5 most frequently asked questions regarding injectables and fillers and put together the list below.  We want you to look as good as you feel so always feel free to write to us with any questions about treatments, products and procedures!

  • How long does Botox last?  How long will Juvederm and Voluma last?
    • Keep in mind that everyone’s body metabolizes injectables differently and so some people may not need as many touch-ups as others.  That being said, typically Botox lasts anywhere from 3-4 months while Juvederm can last from 6 months to a year and Voluma up to two years.
  • Am I limited to the amount of activity I can do pre-treatment or post-treatment?
    • There is nothing that you need to do to prepare for your injectable treatment but it is recommended to avoid aspirin and blood thinners as they may cause bruising.  Also, avoiding caffeine may be helpful if it typically makes you feel jittery.    There are some different guidelines when it comes to post-treatment care though.  If you get Botox injected, don’t lie down for 4 hours and avoid any exercise until the following day.  With all injectables, it is recommended to avoid drinking alcohol until the following day as alcohol thins the blood which may lead to some bruising.
  • What exactly is the difference between Voluma and Juvederm?
    • Voluma and Juvederm are both Hyaluronic Acid  fillers, however, the main difference between the two is that Voluma is a much thicker filler.  So Voluma yields the best results when injected in the cheeks and mid-face to restore volume.  While Juvederm is used to fill the lips, nasolabial folds and directly beneath the eyes.
  • How long does it take to see the results for Botox, Juvederm and Voluma?
    • Expect to see the full results of your Botox treatment between 7-10 days while Juvederm and Voluma will take 7 days.
  • Is there anything one can do to make the results last longer?
    • If there is one tip that everyone at Lift MD swears by it’s to drink as much water as possible if you were injected with a filler.  Water bonds with the Hyaluronic Acid and thus keeps the filler plump and helps it last longer.

Kybella: The nonsurgical solution to redefining your chin

The fear of having a double chin is extremely common in both men and women across the globe. This fear becomes or already is a reality for many of us. Thankfully, there is now a safe and effective solution for this common issue. Rediscover your jaw-line with the revolutionary procedure, Kybella.

Kybella is the nonsurgical solution designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. It provides maximum results and requires minimal commitment as sessions average between 20 and 30 minutes. Although it varies with each patient, 2-6  sessions scheduled a month apart are suggested for optimum results.

Kybella is the first injectable substance that the FDA has approved to treat under the chin fat. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into “under the skin” fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The preference for fat cells leaves surrounding tissue largely unaffected. It destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured.
