What’s the Difference Between BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers?
Both BOTOX® and dermal fillers help to reduce wrinkles, but they work differently. BOTOX® is a toxin that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles by blocking muscle activity. When a muscle doesn’t contract, it doesn’t affect the skin to form wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill spaces in different skin layers, correcting wrinkles by leveling the skin’s surface from the beneath the epidermis. Injectable fillers can fill wrinkles, soften creases and give flat, thin lips more volume.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable form of botulinum toxin corrects creases formed by repeated contractions of facial muscles by inhibiting the nerve impulses responsible for creating certain fine lines and wrinkles. Following the injection, the muscle is paralyzed, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.
BOTOX® is effective at treating the following types of wrinkles:
- Bunny lines (small lines of the upper nose)
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Crow’s feet (fine creases at the outer corners of the eyes)
- Glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
How long does BOTOX® last? Results usually last for four to six months.
Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers for the face, also known as dermal fillers, are formulated to address common signs of aging, such as wrinkles, folds and areas that appear to be sunken. They produce a fuller, softer, more attractive appearance that can last for several months. The fillers offered at North Texas Plastic Surgery include:
