What is the difference between Botox and fillers?
Botox was created with purified bacteria that freezes muscles. In doing this, Botox can then help minimize the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles that are often caused by facial expressions and aging.
Botox works when it is injected near the areas you want to smooth out by blocking the nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When these nerve signals are blocked, the affected muscle is then temporarily paralyzed so it cannot move. Without this movement in those particular muscles, the certain wrinkles that are being affected by the muscles may become softened, reduced or even completely removed.
While dermal fillers contain ingredients that offer fullness to the areas that have become thinned out due to aging. The thinning effect is common in areas like the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
Dermal fillers are injected beneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness where the patient wants. Dermal fillers can last up to 6 months or even longer.
What are the benefits of Botox and fillers?
Botox works on fine lines and wrinkles, the most common wrinkles and fine lines it can help to correct are the lines of the upper face, between the brows, any lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox will need maintenance treatments done, and we recommend getting another Botox treatment done every 3 to 4 months.
Dermal fillers were created to treat any signs of aging, some of the most common things dermal fillers can offer includes:
⦁ Plumping thinned lips
⦁ Enhancing or filling in shallow areas on the face
⦁ Decreasing or removing the shadow or wrinkles often found under the eyes caused by the lower eyelid
⦁ Fills in and softens the look of recessed scars
⦁ Fills in and softens static wrinkles often found on the lower area of the face
Dermal fillers are much like Botox as they will also need maintenance appointments booked. It is best to get a recommendation for your particular case from your injections at your appointment.

How do the Botulin Toxins work?
Your specialist will inject these muscles with the medication to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
How do Fillers work?
Dermal filler injections are currently one of the most popular treatments in the field of medical aesthetics – and for good reason. The injections require no recovery time and provide immediate results! Medical grade filler injections typically consist of hyaluronic acid or collagen, which occurs in the skin naturally. The injections restore collagen that is lost with age, creating an effect that fills in wrinkles & plumps volume in desired areas. Where could your face benefit from filler injections? Check out this list of 6 common areas where fillers can be used!
What areas can be treated with filler?
The most common areas for treatment include the lips, cheeks, forehead lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds. Other areas or options are available and can be discussed at your no cost consultation.
