Botox and dermal fillers are both cosmetic treatments used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but they work in different ways.
Botox is a brand name for an injection that is injected into specific facial muscles, Botox can relax those muscles, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by facial expressions, such as frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles. Botox is commonly used on the upper third of the face.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid or other substances that are used to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and other areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment and enhance facial features, such as the lips, cheeks, and chin. They work by adding volume to the treated area, which can smooth out wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are commonly used on the lower two-thirds of the face.
In summary, Botox relaxes muscles to reduce wrinkles, while dermal fillers add volume to the skin to smooth out wrinkles and enhance facial features. Both treatments can be used together to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
