What Is the Difference Between Botox and Lip Fillers?

Botox And Lip Fillers

With so many anti-aging techniques available to us today, it can be overwhelming trying to understand and differentiate them all, so Fountain of You wanted to take this opportunity to explain the differences between Botox and lip fillers to you. Then, when you come in to see us, you will be informed and ready to choose the anti-aging technique that is right for you!

What Is Botox?

Botox is actually a toxin derived from a bacteria, but it is purified and approved by the FDA. It works by blocking nerve signals and temporarily paralyzing the affected muscle. So, when you contort your face, the muscles that normally move and cause wrinkles to appear are unable to do so giving your face a much smoother appearance.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Fillers are substances that are injected underneath the surface of the skin to add volume and fullness, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. There are multiple substances that can be used in fillers. One of the most popular is hyaluronic acid.

Are They Both Safe?

As mentioned, Botox has been approved by the FDA. There are also dermal fillers, such as Juvaderm, that are FDA-approved. Because both Botox and fillers are injected, it is important that you seek out a professional who is trained in these anti-aging treatments. As with any medical procedure, there are possible side effects, so it is always important to consider those before making your decision.

Which One Should I Choose?

Your choice should be based on what you are trying to achieve. They are generally used in different parts of the face. Botox may be used more in deep wrinkles occurring on the forehead and between the eyes, whereas, fillers may be used more for lines around the mouth area. While results vary, dermal fillers may have a longer-lasting effect than Botox, but they also may cost a bit more. Our professionals can help you decide which route is best to take for your needs and goals.
