Botox vs fillers: What’s the difference?

Knowing the difference between Botox and fillers will help you look and feel younger. Here’s our quick guide to help you.

Botox helps to reduce or eliminate wrinkles without surgery. It reduces horizontal creases in the forehead, reduces frown lines and minimises the looks of crows’ feet or smile lines around the eyes. During treatment, very low doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed.

Fillers help to replace lost collagen for areas such as glabellar frowns, nasolabial folds, augmentation of chin, forehead or cheekbones and augmentation of depressed cheeks. It is proven also extremely useful to form a higher nose bridge, giving a sharper nose and corrections of acne scars. Fillers are also used for volume augmentation and enhancement of the lips. The treatment is an easy and fast procedure; it takes around 25 minutes, depending on the treated area.
