How Do Dermal Fillers Differ From Botox?

Dermal fillers and Botox treatments are injectable products that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, especially facial wrinkles. These painless outpatient procedures do not require sutures, scarring or anesthesia. Both are temporary solutions that require additional treatment to maintain their effects in the long term. That, however, is where the similarities end.

The most significant difference between Botox and dermal fillers is their primary function. As their name suggests, dermal fillers work by reversing volume loss and stimulating collagen production to fill the target area. They can act as lip fillers, provide cheek contour or reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Botox works quite differently from dermal fillers. Instead of filling in wrinkles, Botox injections block nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, preventing them from moving and deepening fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Botox is also FDA-approved to treat migraines, excessive sweating, unwanted muscle spasms and other conditions.

While Botox and dermal fillers are excellent anti-aging products, they are both ideal for tackling different types of wrinkles. Botox is best for treating dynamic wrinkles, or those formed by repetitive facial expressions such as squinting, smiling or frowning. Dermal filler treatment, by contrast, is a way to address wrinkles and fine lines caused by a loss of elasticity in the skin, especially in the mouth and mid-face. Fillers are also excellent for adding volume and contour to areas such as the lips, cheeks and lacrimal furrows.

Botox and dermal fillers will have a temporary effect. Botox wears off in three to six months, while dermal fillings last from four to two months, depending on how quickly your body absorbs the substance and the ingredients used.
