The Difference Between Botox and Fillers
Botox and fillers are non-surgical treatments designed to help you look younger without anesthesia or downtime. Botox blocks muscle contractions to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It’s been around since 2002 and one of the most common aesthetic treatments in the U.S. Fillers use hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body to restore age-related volume loss in areas like the cheeks, which you may lose as you age.
With Botox, you can diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines, which may arise every time you smile, frown, or make any other facial expression. Dermal fillers like Juvederm can improve a deflated look by adding volume to your face.
Fillers can also treat moderate to severe wrinkles. If you have wrinkles around your mouth, they can certainly help. While Botox results typically last between 3 to 4 months, fillers offer 9 to 24 months of anti-aging benefits.
