Put Your Best Face Forward: Botox or Filler?


With all the options available these days, it’s quite common to be confused by which noninvasive facial treatment might be your best choice, especially if you’re a first-timer.

Here’s a tip that’s easy to remember: Botox® is used to relax and smooth the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles.

Fillers are used to restore volume loss to the face, resulting in a more youthful look.

Frequently Asked Questions about Botox and Fillers

Will it hurt?

The discomfort is negligible. Most people compare the slight sting you feel as being similar to a mosquito bite.

Will it look like I’ve had “work done”?

It will be your little secret. The reason why these treatments are so popular is because they’re quick and easy and look very natural. You can return to your normal activities immediately after a treatment.

Can I get both?

Absolutely. The treatments complement each other and a combination of both can provide you with the best results. Our Master Cosmetic Injectors will gladly discuss the best options for your desired results and outcome.

Am I too young or too old for this?

It all depends on your goals. Some people begin Botox® in their 20s as a preventative measure. Others wait until they begin noticing furrows between the brows, lines around the lips, or volume loss in the face.

How long will the results last?

Botox® typically lasts three to four months, but this can be more or less depending on the individual. Fillers can last up to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and what area is being treated.
