- Botox freezes muscles to stop creases and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. While dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid and similar substances to “fill in” or plump areas that have lost volume and smoothness.
- Botox results last 3 to 4 months. Dermal filler results vary, depending on which filler is used; some fillers last 6 months, while others last up to 2 years or longer.
- The most common areas that Botox can treat are lines on the upper face, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes and also works on static wrinkles that include lines in the cheeks, neck, and jowl areas. And the most common areas that fillers can treat are wrinkles around the mouth, thin lips, and cheeks that have lost fullness. They 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.
