Botox VS Fillers: Deciding Which is Right for You

If you are considering an injectable cosmetic treatment for skin rejuvenation, adding volume or reduce signs of aging such as fines lines and wrinkles, you may feel torn between Botox and dermal fillers. Both options provide similar results and are priced competitively, making it difficult to decide which one will give you the best outcome. Learn more about these two popular injectables below to determine the best choice for your skin type and goals.

Botox Overview

Botox is a derivative of botulinum toxin, which has been safely used in small amounts for decades. This toxin works by temporarily paralyzing muscles which in turn, blocks specific nerve signals. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced. This treatment is not permanent and results can vary.

Since Botox works by freezing the muscles, it is best suited for men and women with dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and mouth such as smile lines. Deep set wrinkles are most successful with Botox treatment. Fines lines and dissipating volume in the face are suitable for Botox as it can only effect wrinkles caused by muscle use.

Dermal Filler Overview

Dermal fillers are a good alternative Botox for men and women with fine lines and hollow areas on the face. This type of cosmetic treatment does not rely on underlying muscles. Rather, it works by stimulating the body’s own collagen production. Collagen is a protein that contributes to plump and youthful skin. As you age, its production naturally decreases which contributes to fines lines, wrinkles and other problem areas.  If you are in the Scottsdale, AZ area and need botox we have a location there as well.

Since dermal fillers can activate higher collagen production, they can produce longer lasting results than Botox. However, you will need maintenance treatments every once in a while to continue to enjoy higher collagen production.

Side Effects

Both Botox and dermal fillers are associated with a low risk for side effects. Patients may experience mild symptoms following an injection which may include bruising, swelling and redness or irritation. Some Botox patient also report feeling tightness in their skin which typically goes away after a few days. Both treatments are relatively fast and hassle free. These types of procedures typically take less than an hour of your time and require no down time.

If you are considering an injectable to reduce signs of aging, Botox and dermal fillers can help you reach your goals. To make the best choice possible, get in touch with our physician to determine the ideal treatment plan for your needs.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
