Should you get BOTOX® or dermal fillers?

Fine lines and wrinkles are the top signs of aging and inevitably happen to all of us. Non-surgical treatments such as injectables are popular with patients because they provide quick results with little or no downtime. Not all wrinkles are the same, so you may need one type of injectable or a combination to achieve the youthful results you want.

BOTOX®

BOTOX® is the top-selling treatment of its kind that temporarily paralyzes muscles to make them relax and smooth out wrinkles. This is typically done in the upper third of the face to smooth out frown lines between the eyebrows known as the “11 lines,” crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead lines.

Dynamic wrinkles

BOTOX® treats dynamic wrinkles, which are facial creases caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Years of frowning, squinting, smiling or raising eyebrows will cause the skin to furrow and fold, leading to the gradual formation of facial lines that are visible only when making the facial expression.

When do you see results?

You should start seeing results in one to three days after BOTOX® treatment. Results typically last three to six months.

Dermal Fillers

We start to lose volume in our faces when we age due to a decrease in collagen and hyaluronic acid. Juvederm®, Radiesse® and Sculptra are popular dermal fillers that lift and add volume to the hollowed areas and wrinkles and folds of your skin, essentially “filling out” wrinkles.

Static wrinkles

Dermal fillers fill static wrinkles, which result in the loss of skin’s elasticity, fat and collagen from the natural aging process. These wrinkles are brought on with aging, genetics, poor diet and smoking and are wrinkles that are always visible. Dynamic wrinkles can become static wrinkles over time.

When do you see results?

You should see results from the dermal filler right after treatment. Depending on the type of filler that was used, results could last a few months to a year or longer.
