Neurotoxins vs. Dermal Fillers
What’s the Difference between Neurotoxins and Filler?
Even though dermal fillers and neurotoxins both reduce wrinkles, they work in completely different ways.
Fillers minimize the lines and wrinkles caused as the skin loses both its elasticity and its youthful volume. When injected, fillers restore volume where it’s been lost to create a smoother appearance.
Neurotoxins, on the other hand, addresses “dynamic wrinkles” — those caused by the repetitive contractions of facial muscles as we change expressions. Neurotoxins, also known as a neuromodulator, temporarily immobilizes those tiny muscles.

Achieve Non-Surgical Wrinkle Relaxation at A Younger You!
There are many non-surgical treatments for wrinkle relaxation on the aesthetic market, but BOTOX® is one of the most popular and extensively-studied injectables for the correction of moderate to severe crow’s feet and dynamic wrinkles.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a prescription medication made as a derivative of the botulinum molecule. It has multiple uses for both cosmetic and therapeutic concerns and can be completely customized to the individual.
Cosmetic Uses for BOTOX®
When BOTOX® is injected into the treated area, it blocks the signals that are sent by the nerves to the muscles. As a result, the muscle contractions are relaxed, smoothing visible signs of aging around the eyes and forehead. Signs of aging that develop as a result of volume loss in the face may be best treated through other alternatives, which will be discussed during your consultation.
How Is BOTOX® Administered?
When administering BOTOX®, our medical professionals use a very fine needle to inject the product into the specific muscle groups that are being treated. Patients typically experience minimal to no discomfort. Usually, within three to five days, you will start to see and feel the BOTOX® take effect. In some instances, it may take up to two weeks for the full effects to be seen. We typically recommend that you avoid alcohol in the weeks leading up to treatment and that you avoid anti-inflammatory medications two weeks prior to treatment for best results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
BOTOX® use for treating dynamic wrinkles has been reviewed and approved by the FDA. As with any medical treatment, you may experience some side effects, which include minor bruising, slight pain, or skin reddening. However, these symptoms usually subside within 48 hours.
BOTOX® treatments have been administered to millions of men and women worldwide, and the majority of them are happy with the youthful, revitalized appearance they achieve. No serious side effects have been recorded for patients who qualify, and it is important to have a qualified medical professional administer these treatments.
Individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have muscular or neurological diseases, or certain allergies would not make good BOTOX® candidates. We will evaluate your health, medical history, and more during your consultation to ensure that this injectable treatment is right for you.
BOTOX® treatments have helped many of our patients to achieve a more youthful look. We are excited to show you how BOTOX (r) can help you minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.
