If you’re new to injectables, you may be wondering about the differences between Botox and fillers and which products will help you achieve your specific anti-aging goals. Botox and fillers both have their own unique advantages and can also be used to reverse the signs of aging.
Let’s dive in…
Botox is a name brand neurotoxin utilized to block muscle movement in targeted muscle groups. This reduction of movement reduces the appearance of deep and fine lines on the face and neck. Botox is not the only neurotoxin on the market, we also offer Dysport which is like Botox but has slightly different features. Designed to remove and reduce wrinkles, Botox treatments work by blocking the nerve signals to your facial muscles. Quick and painless, Botox reduces your facial muscle activity and temporarily prevents the contraction of muscles that cause laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Most people see visible results in 10 days to 2 weeks, and results last about 6 months.
Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance of the skin. Each filler is composed differently to target and enhance different features of the face. Dermal fillers restore facial volume loss, effectively smoothing lines and wrinkles, restoring your cheek and lip volume, and refreshing your appearance. From plumping the lips to lifting your cheeks, fillers add volume, encourage natural collagen production, and prevent the skin from sagging.
Depending on your goals, a combination of Botox and fillers can make the greatest impact on your appearance.
Botox and dermal fillers both require the expertise of a certified medical professional for safe and effective results.
