Botox vs Fillers

Botox is a brand name for botulinum neurotoxin. For cosmetic purposes, doctors inject it in order to temporarily immobilize or relax certain muscles that cause wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, rejuvenate your look by filling those wrinkles. If this sounds a bit vague, it helps to understand how you get to a place when you actually need a filler. Our skin has natural collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which keep the skin glowing, elastic and hydrated. As we age, our body’s ability to produce more of these substances decreases. This means that our skin is likely to sag, become dry and develop stubborn folds and wrinkles over time. Dermal fillers, which either contain hyaluronic acid or collagen, fill those folds of skin, just like the natural body does at a younger age. The most popular brands of dermal fillers available are Juvederm, Galderma, Radiesse , Sculptra etc.

The main difference between Botox and fillers
They both have the purpose of reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, but the main difference can be summed up in the wrinkles they can treat and how they do it. Botox is injected into the muscles. Therefore, Botox and other botulinum neurotoxins, target wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as your frown lines or your crow’s feet when you smile. Fillers are great when combating wrinkles that don’t accentuate with muscle movement, such as lip lines. Dermal fillers are also great when restoring volume to the face, like plumping up your lips or cheeks.

Juvederm and Botox: Which one is better?
Ultimately, you should consult a cosmetic surgeon or a dermatologist who specializes in injectables in order to figure out if a botulinum neurotoxin or a dermal filler is better for YOU. Here are some things to consider: If your wrinkles increase with expressions, Botox is probably what you’re looking for. Deeper lines that are there even when you’re not gesturing? Fillers.
Another thing to remember is that these treatments are very gentle and safe, so it’s completely possible to use a combination of both in order to give an effective touch-up to your whole face. Here are some quick tips for problem areas:

Botox vs Fillers for Lips.
As you age, your lips can also lose volume because collagen and elastin start to break down and your body cannot replace them quickly enough. Winner? A dermal filler, such as Juvederm can add youthful fullness to your lips.

Botox vs Fillers for Frown and Forehead Lines
Every time you raise your eyebrows, frown or squint, you are contracting muscles. Over time, you’ll likely develop horizontal lines on your forehead. Winner? Depends on your lines. For most patients, it is best when Botox and a dermal filler, such as Restylane or Juvederm are combined. The botulinum neurotoxin relaxes the overactive muscle and a filler will add volume to the wrinkle, fading it.

Botox vs Fillers for Crow’s Feet
A life well lived will likely result in crow’s feet – sunny days, hysterical laughter and smiles tend to leave a mark. Those tiny lines near your eyes can become permanent with time. Winner? Botox, with the option to add a dermal filler to maximize the results.


Botox & Fillers

Facial fillers work by safely restoring lost volume under the skin, softening wrinkles and emptiness from ageing, most commonly in the lips and the creases around the mouth, often called the “parentheses”. Recent advances in technology have allowed for longer-lasting and natural results. If you would like to restore facial contours or reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue dermal fillers may be right for you.
Commonly used facial fillers include those made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural sugar, a component that occurs naturally in our skin. Brands including Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Refyne, Defyne, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Vollure vary in thickness and consistency. Depending on the patient and product, some treatments can last from four to six months. We will perform a facial analysis and determine which facial filler is right for you based on your skin type and thickness.
Are you a busy Mom, a working woman, or both? Here’s the good news: the procedure takes 10-30 minutes post-application of local anaesthesia and can be done in our Looks Studio on the day of the consultation. There is no significant downtime.
You can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
There could be some swelling and bruising, which could last for two or three days in most cases. Some patients report tenderness and redness for several days. Looks Studio has a unique regimen that we use that dramatically reduces the chance of bruising and swelling. This regimen combined with the expertise of Master Injectors will help minimize the potential side effects and maximize recovery.
A "frozen" effect can occur with a large dosage or quantity of injections in specific areas, but our docs take special consideration for every patient's individual goals. Most of our patient's like to smooth the wrinkles while maintaining movement in certain areas. At your consultation we will ask what you are hoping to accomplish with your injections and we will tailor your treatment specifically to you!
Most people see lasting results from their Botox injections for 3-4 months. Some of our patients who have been receiving these injections for a long period of time see longer effects from the injections and only come in to see us a couple of times a year.
The best results we see from Botox show up in our patients who started receiving these injections in their 20's and 30's. We refer to this as Preventative Botox. Starting Botox after wrinkles are formed means that we are trying to undo these effects on the skin and face, but by weakening the muscles before the wrinkles and lines form you are helping to stop them from forming in the first place.
The best treatment for you is the one that makes you feel the most comfortable. Everyone's journey is unique to them, so we encourage you to do things at your own pace. Our goal is to help you feel beautiful and confident from the treatments you receive in our office.
