Botox Cosmetic: Myth #2

Time to debunk another myth about Botox Cosmetic. Many patients confuse the Botox and injectible fillers, such collagen, Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Radiesse, and fat.

Myth #2: Botox is a filler

Fact: Botox is not a filler. Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles which cause wrinkles. The relaxation is not immediate, and is seen a few days after treatment. It’s great for forehead, glabellar, and crow’s feet wrinkles.

Injectable fillers add volume directly to the skin and plump up wrinkles. Its effects are immediate.

Both Botox and injectable fillers are temporary non-surgical methods for facial rejuvenation. Repeated treatment would be necessary to maintain the cosmetic benefit. In addition, both may be used at the same time for synergistic cosmetic enhancement!
