Not Sure Which Is Best, Botox or Fillers?
Deciding on the best wrinkle treatment and skin rejuvenation approach can be difficult, especially if you’re a first-timer.
Today we’re going to discuss the differences between Botox and fillers so you can get an idea of the best treatment for your needs.
Both Botox and dermal fillers have grown in popularity over the years but they’re not interchangeable treatments nor are they synonymous and depending on what you’re looking for one may work better than the other.
Although they’re often confused as one another they do have different functions. Here’s what you need to know.
What’s the Difference?
While both are effective treatments to eliminate the effects of aging, Botox reduces the activity of the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles and dermal fillers literally fill the trouble areas and plump the skin. So, let’s take a closer look.
At EVEXIAS Medical Centers, we offer both Botox® and Dysport®, which are two different brand names of the injectable drug Botulinum Toxin A.
Both Botox® and Dysport® have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles and other health ailments in the U.S.
- On the market for over two decades.
- Decreases muscle movement.
- Great for erasing expression lines.
Fillers, dermal fillers, or facial fillers are also used to:
- Prevent signs of aging
- Encourage collagen growth
- Plump up and lifting skin to replace areas with collagen loss
Every year we lose 1% of the collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) underneath our skin, which equals at least one teaspoon every year starting at about age 35!
Our cheeks begin to sag and deep lines can form across our face, especially around the nose, mouth, and lips. At EVEXIAS Medical Centers, we offer four natural fillers including Restalyne®, Perlane®, Juvaderm®, and Belotero®.
- Erases deep lines that are present even when facial muscles aren’t contracting.
- Long-lasting results.
- Restore volume and reduce sagging skin features.
As you can see, both treatments offer aesthetic value and restorative properties. Still not sure which is best?
- Botox is great for addressing wrinkles around the forehead and eyes.
- Fillers are better equipped for the lower face and static wrinkles that occur when you’re not making any expression.
