Botox | Dermal Fillers in Nashville, TN, with Dr. Michael Cash
Botox® and dermal fillers are injectable treatments to make your face look younger. As you age, and as your skin is exposed to the sun, wrinkles and lines can form.
Creases can form where facial expressions compress and fold the skin. Layers of fat beneath your skin that once made you look young can become thinner or shift to lower positions on your face. The combined effect of these changes can be to make you look older than you’d like to appear and older than you feel.
Botox and dermal fillers work in different ways to smooth facial wrinkles and lines and add volume where it has been lost to make you look younger and more attractive. They can be used to erase expression lines around your eyes and mouth, lift your cheeks, plump your lips, and correct facial asymmetry.

What Is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an injectable drug that relaxes facial expression muscles, allowing creased skin to flatten and smooth. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin Type A, specially formulated for injection into facial muscles to soften expression lines. It was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002 and has been used ever since to help millions of people look younger.
Cosmetic Botox treatments can also provide relief from chronic migraines, TMJ pain, or areas that sweat too much such as the armpits, scalp, or palms of the hands.

Treatments with Botox and dermal fillers are temporary. The improvements they make typically last between a few months and two years. They work well to correct the early stages of facial aging, when lines and wrinkles are visible but before significant sagging has occurred.
For sagging facial skin or a more permanent solution, Dr. Cash might recommend a facelift or brow lift.

What to Expect in a Treatment Session
Treatments with Botox and dermal fillers are done in our Nashville office. The treatment sessions are fast — typically between a few minutes and a half hour — and relatively painless.
When you come in, we’ll review the plan for the treatment, then we may apply a topical numbing cream to the areas where injections will be made. Before beginning filler treatment of the lips, we may inject a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort.
Injections of Botox or filler are then made with great care and precision to produce the desired results. After treatment, you can go back to work or resume your normal routine. No downtime is required for Botox or dermal filler treatments.
Types for Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected to add volume to areas of the face where it is needed. Dermal fillers can fill lines and creases in the face or add volume to the cheeks, lips, or under the eyes. Most fillers are made from hyaluronic acid or similar compounds that occur naturally in the body. They add volume immediately, smoothing the skin’s surface. They also stimulate the production of collagen within the skin, which extends the treatment’s effect by helping the skin retain moisture and become more resilient.
Dermal fillers are made by different medical manufacturers and in different formulations for specific cosmetic purposes. Some are designed for smoothing fine wrinkles, for example, while others are made for plumping the lips or adding volume to areas of the face. Dr. Cash works with dermal fillers from two manufacturers with proven records of safety and excellent results:
Juvéderm® is made in a range of formulations for different purposes, from treating fine lines and wrinkles to filling deeper creases or plumping the lips. Juvéderm’s Voluma® XC is made specifically for restoring lost volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face.
Restylane®, which is also made in different formulations, is an excellent choice for treating deeper lines and creases in the face and for restoring volume to thinning lips.
