The primary difference between Botox and fillers is that Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers, however, fill the trouble areas with collagen, which helps to stimulate collagen growth in the face as well as plump and lift the skin to replace collagen loss.
First granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to treat frown lines in 2002, BOTOX® remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market. We offer three types of botox and all are performed in either our Dermatology or Plastics Departments.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), injectable dermal fillers help diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. This minimally invasive procedure has been known to help plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars by injecting fillers into the face with a needle.
A consultation is required for all injectable procedures. The fee is $50 but will be applied to your total balance after the injection.
