What are the differences between fillers and Botox?
Botox and Dysport is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults less than 65 years of age. Dermal fillers aren’t the same as Botox and Dysport. The latter type “freezes” muscles to reduce wrinkles, while fillers smooth out skin by filling wrinkles. Fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm use hyaluronic acid. Thanks to its ability to store moisture, hyaluronic acid is responsible for giving skin a plump, hydrated look. It’s used topically to moisturize, but a topical cream can’t restore lost volume—only injectable hyaluronic acid can. Once injected it can add to the natural plumping action, or replenish your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.
Results typically last for three to six months, depending on the location of the injection, and it’s perfectly safe.
