Wrinkles are a fact of life. As women age, they may have wrinkles that are increasingly visible. Fortunately, it is possible to reduce your wrinkles. That can help you look and feel younger. At Accent On You, we know what it takes to help you get the look you want. That is why we offer many types of cosmetic surgery procedures. If you are wondering about the difference between Botox and fillers, you are not alone. Both of these procedure types can offer the kind of results you want in a relatively quick time frame. Let’s explore their differences.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are another commonly used medical procedure for the treatment of wrinkles. This type of treatment has several things in common with Botox. It’s also injected into the body. Like Botox, dermal fillers are also a temporary solution that works quickly and can offer impressive results within a short time. However, this treatment also differs in certain ways. Unlike Botox, fillers are intended to fill a part of the body such as your lips, to add more volume. Many clients also use them to get rid of smile lines.

What Does Botox Do?

Botox is used to relax the muscles in your body. This treatment is safe and effective. Made from bacteria, the material has been used to treat migraines or muscle spasms for over two decades. Today, doctors know it can be used to help treat wrinkles. As women age, they tend to have what are known as dynamic wrinkles. These are kinds of wrinkles that will form near your eyes, mouth, and eyebrows. Botox can be used to relax the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles, particularly in the eye or brow areas.

Which is Right for Me?

At Accent on You, we offer dermal fillers made with biocompatible ingredients like hyaluronic acid and poly-L lactic acid. Because these active ingredients are naturally found in the body, unlike botulinum toxin in Botox, they are safe for almost all patients. Fillers are also available in a range of formulas from various brands. At Accent On You, we offer a number of different types of fillers tailored to different concerns and different areas of the face. These can help you achieve the kind of long-lasting effects you really want with results customized to your goals.
