Botox vs Fillers
I often hear patients confusing Botox and Fillers in their terminology and want to take this opportunity to set the record straight. There is a big difference between the two!
Botox (or Dysport) is used to relax overactive muscles and smooth wrinkles. They are most often used in the forehead, between the brows, and for crow’s feet around the eyes. Results normally last between 3-6 months.
Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, or Sculptra) are used to fill and re-contour the face, replace lost volume, and fill deeper folds/wrinkles. Fillers are most often used in the cheek bones, nasolabial folds (around the mouth), temples and lips. Results usually last between 4-12 months (for Juvederm/Restylane/Radiesse) and 1-2 years (Sculptra).
