Both Botox and Dermal Fillers are FDA approved cosmetic injectables that are designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.*
Botox is a neurotoxin that is produced using sources that occur naturally in the environment. It is injected under your skin to relax facial muscles and help smooth out lines and wrinkles. Find out more about how Botox works here.*
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that, when injected into your skin, help to plump it out and add volume, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are a wide variety of dermal fillers on the market, but many of the most popular ones (such as Belotero Balance, Juvederm and Restylane) are produced from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is found naturally in your body.*
Because of the different ways these injectables work, they also are better suited for treating different areas of the face. Botox is more commonly used on the upper face, such as on forehead lines and creases, frown lines and crow’s feet. Dermal fillers, however, are better suited to fill out areas that have lost volume, such as in the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines from the corners of your mouth to your chin (marionette lines). They can also be used to add volume to thin lips.*
