Botox vs. Fillers: Which Is Right for You

Two of the most popular treatments for facial rejuvenation are neuromodulators (e.g., Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau) and dermal fillers. Both are minimally invasive, injectable treatments that assist with various cosmetic inquiries. Deciding which is a better fit for your needs can be challenging, but our team of estheticians at Fresh Medical Aesthetics can help you make that decision. Keep reading to learn more about the differences between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers.

What Are Neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators are injectables primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, the treatment temporarily prevents the facial muscles from contracting, which causes the muscles to relax and any fine lines to start to smooth out. It is commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. It can also be used on the lower face and neck area.

The effects of this treatment typically last three to four months, after which you can repeat the treatment if desired to maintain the results. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau is safe and effective; visit our Plymouth, MA office to get started. 

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are gaining popularity and are a type of injectable treatment that restores lost facial volume, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps keep skin plump and hydrated. Dermal fillers work to plump up the treated area, smoothing out wrinkles and leaving skin looking smooth.

There are various dermal fillers available, most commonly Juvéderm. Some fillers are better suited for filling in deep wrinkles, while others are designed to add volume. Compared to neuromodulators, dermal fillers can last up to two years, depending on the area treated. Work with Fresh Medical Aesthetics to determine if fillers are suitable for you. 

Botox vs. Fillers on the South Shore

Consider your needs when deciding which treatment is proper. Smoothing out wrinkles caused by muscle movement would be better treated with Botox, whereas restoring volume to cheeks or lips would be better with dermal fillers. Our team is ready to help you choose the right option if you’re considering neuromodulators or fillers. You can sit down with a private consultation where we will discuss your concerns, needs, and goals for your treatment. Contact our office or book an appointment to take the next step.
