How is Botox® Cosmetic Different From Dermal Fillers?

As the most trusted Botox® Cosmetic treatment center in Atlanta we are often asked about the differences in Botox® Cosmetic and popular dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Juverderm®, for example.

The main uses of either of these treatments is the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles that can appear on your face, neck or chin over time. Generally the first place that these wrinkles will appear is between your brow, on the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet). This is because those muscles are the ones that create the most of your facial expressions on a daily basis. Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles is the main goal of both Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, so that brings us to our question…

What is the Difference between Botox® Cosmetic/Xeomin® and Dermal Fillers?

  • The main difference between these two types of regimens are the lines and wrinkles that you will be treating.
  • Botox® Cosmetic is generally used on the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet) and on the neck area. Dermal fillers, however, are good for areas around your nose, cheeks and mouth.
  • Botox® Cosmetic is used to treat the areas in which muscle movements (such as facial expressions) cause deep wrinkles and harsh lines.
  • Dermal fillers, however, are just that…fillers and can be used to fill in prominent acne scars, under the eyes where hollows cause dark circles, or to plump the lips and create fuller cheeks.

Often times when you come in for a consultation you may realize that in order to achieve the results you’re looking for, both Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers will be necessary. This is common to reach a flawless and youthful complexion.
