BOTOX® relaxes the muscles which cause many facial lines and unwanted facial expressions. Fillers fill creases, lips, cheekbones, and also defects like acne scars. Sometimes BOTOX® is used in combination with Fillers when treating certain areas where permanent deep lines have resulted from over activity of the muscles, for example some frown lines on the lower forehead or wrinkles around the lips.
What Is The Difference Between Botox & Fillers?
What Is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox® has been used for over 15 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is a purified protein that is administered via a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause those stubborn crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
How Long Do Botox Treatments Last?
Botox® treatments generally last 3 to 6 months. Just 2 to 3 treatments a year will help a person to maintain a more youthful, fresh, and well-rested appearance. With reapplication results tend to last longer.
What is Dermal Filler?
It is a safe, natural cosmetic filler that is made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance present in body that provides volume and fullness to the skin.
Is Dermal Filler Safe?
Dermal Filler has been used by physicians worldwide since 1996 and was FDA approved in 2003. Dermal Filler is completely biocompatible and therefore allergy testing is not required; allergy testing is necessary for collagen injections. After your treatment you might have mild redness and swelling, lasting no more than 5-7 days.
