What is the Difference Between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Botox and dermal fillers are both injectable anti-ageing treatments but the products work in very different ways and treat different types of lines, wrinkles and folds.

Botox is a muscle relaxant that temporarily stops the fine lines and wrinkles which appear when the face is moving. It is injected into specific muscle groups to stop the muscles from contracting and, whilst the muscles are not able to contract, the associated lines and wrinkles are not able to form. A Botox treatment takes minutes and can last for 4-5 months. Anti-ageing and rejuvenation specialists Melior Clinics offer Botox treatment sessions which are supported by a free consultation and free review and top up appointment.

Where can I get a Botox treatment?

Melior Clinics perform treatments at their London Botox Clinic in Harley Street and traditionally treat three areas to the upper face, to include the horizontal lines to the forehead, the vertical lines to the glabella (in between the eyebrows) and the crows feet to the side of the eyes. Patients undergoing a three area treatment can also have the lower face treated at no additional cost, which combines into a full face treatment to really enhance features and give an overall balance to the face.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are usually hyaluronic-acid based products which are injected into deeper lines and static folds, predominantly to the lower face. Areas for treatment include the naso-labial folds (nostril to mouth) and marionette lines (mouth edge to jowl). Dermal fillers including Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse are used to replace lost volume by replenishing the natural hyaluronic-acid content of the skin. Dermal fillers, when properly applied, help give facial features back their fullness, reduce deeper wrinkles and enhance contours.
