BOTOX® vs. Dermal Fillers: Which is right for you?

BOTOX® is a very common injectable that is often confused as a dermal filler. However, the two products are very different and can target distinct signs of aging. So how do you know which treatment is the best to target your signs of aging? NIMA can help!


What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX®, a common neurotoxin, and other injectables such as Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeauveau®, are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily freezing facial muscles. The treatment is carried out by administering several quick injections into the treatment area. It is a quick and easy process that lasts no more than 10 to 15 minutes with zero downtime or recovery.


What are Fillers? 

Dermal Fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. There are many types of dermal fillers, but the most popular ones are hyaluronic acids. Hyaluronic acids attract water to your tissues. This boost of hydration helps make your skin appear youthful.

How do I know which injectable is right for me?

BOTOX® (and other forms of neurotoxins) are commonly used to eliminate wrinkles in the forehead, lift the brows, lose the scowl, soften smile lines, erase dimpling, sculpt the jawline, and rejuvenate the neck. Fillers are best used to plump thin lips, soften facial creases, enhance shallow contours, reconstruct hollows on face, improve appearance of recessed scars, and plump baggy under eyes.
