What are Botox injections?
Cosmetic injections are a popular – and often misunderstood – non-surgical procedure famous for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

When injected in small doses Botox, one of the leading brands, smooths and improves the contours of the face, giving a more youthful look. Botox can be used preventatively to preserve a youthful complexion and delay the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines and wrinkles.

What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hylauronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.

What is the difference between Botox & Fillers?

What is the difference between Botox & Fillers?
In summary, the differences between Botox and fillers are:

Botox: This freezes muscles to stop creases and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. These are typically found in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes.

Dermal fillers: These use hyaluronic acid and similar substances to “fill in” or plump areas that have lost volume and smoothness. This includes wrinkles around the mouth, thin lips, and cheeks that have lost fullness. They may also be used on forehead wrinkles, scars, and other areas that need extra volume for a smoother look.

Because Botox and fillers are different substances designed for different uses, they can sometimes be combined in one treatment. For instance, someone may use Botox to correct lines between the eyes and a filler to correct smile lines around the mouth.
