Dermal fillers and Botox® are both cosmetic injectables, but they differ from each other in both formula and use. Dr. Frank L. Stile offers both of these treatments, but many ask, how are they different from each other?
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a specially formulated neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles in the face. This popular wrinkle treatment has been FDA-approved for over 20 years.
The muscles in our faces help to create everyday facial expressions. When injected, Botox® helps temporarily silence the nerves in those muscles, which smoothes out the skin from years of dynamic expressions.
Botox® is temporary, and generally lasts for around three to six months.
