What’s the Difference Between Botox and Fillers?

Two of the most popular injectable cosmetic treatments given in Pinkapple Aesthetics are Botox and fillers. While both treatments are minimally invasive and deliver great results, the similarities end here.

What’s the difference between Botox and fillers? The difference lies in how the products work. Botox reduces wrinkles by freezing the muscles underneath the skin. Fillers work by plumping up areas of the skin that have lost fullness due to aging.

Both Botox and fillers can be important parts of your anti-aging routine and give you a more youthful look. These two different products can even work in tandem to help you achieve lasting results. Let’s learn more about the difference between Botox and fillers.

What is Botox?

Botox treatment is an injectable treatment called a neurotoxin, that can be used to soften wrinkles and lines. Botox is a form of botulinum toxin that comes from a kind of bacteria. While the toxin can make you sick when ingested in large amounts, it can be a powerful tool when injected in small amounts.

Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscle where it is injected. This prevents the muscle from moving which causes wrinkles and lines to appear. Wrinkles can be softened or even removed with Botox. Your doctor or practitioner might use Botox to smooth wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, or even around the mouth. Botox has been used for decades and is very safe to use. It was first FDA-approved for use in 1989 and is now not only used for wrinkles, but can also treat migraines, hyperhidrosis, and many other conditions.

What are Fillers?

Injectable dermal fillers are products used to fill in tissue where volume has been lost. Fillers are commonly used on the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Plumping up these areas gives a more youthful look by smoothing lines and adding volume.
Dermal or soft tissue fillers are often used to smooth out lines on the face. Fillers are an effective treatment for:

  • Adding volume and shape to lips
  • Smoothing glabella lines between the brows
  • Filling out nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth
Your doctor might also suggest using fillers to smooth scars, lessen the look of forehead wrinkles, or add volume in other areas.
