BOTOX® and fillers have a lot in common. They’re injectables, they reduce signs of aging and you can get them done on your lunch break with a quick trip to the plastic surgeon. However, there is also plenty that separates the two, from how they function to situations they work best in.
So, in the battle of BOTOX vs. fillers, when does BOTOX come out on top? Both BOTOX and fillers are great, but there are specific cases where only BOTOX will do.
#1: When Addressing Expression Lines
If you have lines on your face that are visible when resting, correcting them isn’t what BOTOX can do. However, if you have deep lines that appear as part of your facial expression, BOTOX can stop these from showing up while you talk, laugh and enjoy your life.
#2: When Treating Medical Conditions Like Migraines and Acne
Unlike filler, BOTOX has a lot of medical applications. In fact, that’s what it was first developed for. It can help reduce tension that causes headaches and migraines and even reduce oil production, helping stop breakouts. Filler, on the other hand, is strictly cosmetic.
#3: Lift the Nose for an Instant Nose Job
Starting around age 40, the nose starts to sag and can look hooked at the end. This can visually tug the entire face downward, giving an aged appearance. BOTOX can lift the nose through an injection between the nostrils, releasing the muscle contraction tugging the nose downward.
