Home Differences between Botox® and fillers

For skin beauty treatment without surgery injectables are very popular! Injectables are substances inserted into the skin with a needle, that support muscles or plump up the skin, lessening the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox® and fillers are two types of injectables, which are both injected with a needle.

The biggest difference between Botox® and fillers is that Botox® is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the underlying muscles, fillers on the other hand will fill in wrinkles.

Injections with Botox® and fillers act differently, but have some things in common:

  • It’s a minimal invasive procedure, which have nearly no downtime
  • It’s an alternative for a surgical procedure, so that a facelift may be delayed
  • With both Botox® and fillers a natural result may be achieved. Therefore you should visit an experienced doctor
  • You might need a small touch up a month after the injection

What is Botox®?

Botox® is injected with a fine needle into the muscles which causes fine lines and wrinkles in your face.

Injectables with botuline toxine will help your facial muscles to relax, so that fine lines and wrinkles will get less visible when contracting your facial muscles.

Botox® is injected in the frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and may also help to reduce excessive sweating, headaches, gummy smile, marionette lines / corners of the mouth, bunny lines and teeth grinding (bruxism).

What are fillers?

At clinic BeauCare we use fillers with hyaluronic acid in order to fill in wrinkles, to reshape the volume of the lips, to increase the volume of your cheeks, to fill hollow temple and to improve the jawline in a natural way.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body, which keeps your skin supple and resilient. Our body produces hyaluronic acid, but this process will gradually decrease, which is why our skin gets saggy and you will get wrinkles.

Thanks to the injections with hyaluronic acid the volume loss can be restored. Fillers can fill in frown lines, nasolabial lines and plump lips.

The result of the effect of fillers will maintain 8 to 12 months. Our body will dissipate the injected filler over time. This process varies from person to person and from the treated area.

Fillers are injected with a fine needle. These injections are not painfull, thanks to the narcotic substance. For lip augmentation it is advised to apply a cream with topical anesthetic half an hour before your treatment.
The result of a filler injection will immediately be visible. The treated area may be swollen for the first three days due to the narcotic substance.
