Which is Better Botox or Fillers?
If you are just entering the world of injectables you are likely wondering which is better, Botox or fillers?
While both treatments are great each serves a different purpose based on your ideal results. In fact, in many cases, your injector may apply both Botox and fillers to best compliment your face for a gracefully aged look.
What is Botox?
Botox is a wrinkle reducing injection treatment that relaxes the wrinkles on the face that cause wrinkles to form. Once the muscle has been released, the wrinkle disappears.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that brings volume back to areas of your face where it has been lacking such as deep wrinkles and facial folds, as well as areas such as the lips or cheeks for a quick volume boost.
Which is Better, Botox or Filler?
Botox is generally the best product to erase superficial lines and wrinkles, while filler is ideal to plump the skin or to address deep wrinkles.
However, most patients receive a combination of Botox and fillers to address their skin concerns. In fact, many patients find that by using a combination of Botox followed by fillers their results last two times as long as they would with fillers on their own.
Are Botox and Fillers Permanent?
Neither Botox nor fillers offer a permanent solution to erase wrinkles. However, your injector should be able to explain how long you can expect your results to last depending on the product used during your treatment session.
