Both Botox and fillers are injectable solutions used to correct the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. However, that’s where the similarities between the two solutions end. Botox works by freezing the muscles of the face to correct fine lines and wrinkles, while fillers restore lost volume by adding fullness. The effects of Botox and fillers can last from four months to two years, depending on the product being used.
Our dentists at Gardens Dental Spa have undergone specialized training to provide this advanced service to our patients. Their unique perspective as cosmetic dentists allows them to provide outstanding results and ensure the best outcomes for these treatments.
Botox is an injectable that temporarily freezes the muscles around the injection sites to smooth out wrinkles and frown lines. It is safe, and it works fast! This injectable treatment is FDA-approved to treat crow’s feet, forehead creases, worry lines between the eyebrows, nasal furrows, neck bands, and more. It usually takes a few minutes to administer from start to finish – no downtime required! Results are immediately visible, with continued improvement over the following weeks.
Dermal fillers are a popular treatment among both women and men that want to add volume to certain areas of their face, like a sunken cheek or a lip that has thinned with age. This injectable solution contains hyaluronic acid and plumps the treated area by making it look fuller.
The injections are quick and painless, and the filler effects are temporary. Most patients can expect their results to last from a few months to a year, depending on their age and lifestyle habits. Dermal fillers can also be used for facial contouring to create symmetry between facial features.
Are Botox and Fillers Right for Me?
Botox and fillers may be right for you if you’re looking for a way to revitalize your appearance. Both options can make you look younger and healthier, allowing you to have more confidence in your looks. Our dentists can recommend the better option between the two solutions depending on your specific goals.
Botox involves injecting a highly purified form of botulinum toxin into areas of the face where wrinkles are more prominent. It can prevent facial muscles from contracting, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
With fillers, you can soften fine lines, plump up your lips, and restore lost volume to the cheeks and temples. Results can last up to a year or more, depending on the type of filler you get. If your goal is to fill in lines in the skin or restore natural contours, you may prefer fillers over Botox. On the other hand, if you are looking to prevent muscle movement around the mouth and eyes, you may consider Botox instead. Ultimately, the right choice for you depends on your goals.
