Fillers vs. Botox, Which One is Right for Me?

Dermal fillers and Botox are non-invasive cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatments. These injectable solutions have proven effective in dealing with wrinkles and lines on the face. However, there are differences you should be aware of before choosing either.

Botox is the best solution to minimize lines and wrinkles. However, dermal filler addresses the effects of aging. The aging effects corrected with dermal fillers include thinning in the lips, cheeks, and mouth region.

What is Botox?

Botox is a medication used to target wrinkles of the face by freezing the muscles causing the wrinkles.  It also aids in adding fullness to the affected areas. An expert should administer Botox via injection to block nerve signals in affected areas. As a result, the affected facial muscles are frozen. This reduces movement and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Botox is effective in addressing dynamic wrinkles. Botox is not a permanent solution, and patients must schedule follow-up appointments.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injected beneath your skin to add volume and enhance fullness to the face.  The fillers are used in areas that have lost volume due to aging.

The dermal filler used determines the duration treatment will last. Treatment can range from six months to two years before the need for a retouch procedure.

Our experts carry out an in-depth assessment to determine if fillers are the best option for you. As a result, the affected areas usually start to show several signs which indicate the need for dermal fillers.   These signs include thinning lips, shallowness of the face, static wrinkles, and recessed scars.
