What is the Difference between BOTOX and Facial Fillers?

PLASTIC SURGEON & MEDICAL SPA SERVING BRYN MAWR, VILLANOVA & COMMUNITIES NEAR THE MAIN LINE OF PHILADELPHIA, PA

TRANSCRIPT: Patients are often confused about the differences between BOTOX and facial fillers. BOTOX or Dysport are both Botulinum toxin, which is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that occur with movement within the face. The areas that are most commonly treated are the forehead, in between the eyebrows, and the crow's feet - or lateral aspect of the eyes. These treatments relax the muscles in these areas to prevent those wrinkles from forming when a patient smiles or makes facial expressions. Fillers on the other hand are used to treat wrinkles or depressions that are present at rest. They are also used to add volume to the face to create a more youthful appearance. If you have questions or would like to schedule a consultation to discuss what is best for you, BOTOX, Dysport or facial fillers - such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse or Belotero - please feel free to contact our office at 484-222-0010 and schedule a consultation.
