What's The Real Difference Between Botox And Fillers?
By LESLIE LEON
Two of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures are Botox and fillers. These procedures are becoming more normalized, and while these terms are often interchanged, they have some key differences.
Botox is an injectable derived from a bacteria that temporarily paralyzes the muscles so they can no longer fold or crease the skin. This procedure can be used for wrinkles and fine lines, excessive sweating in your underarms, migraines, bladder issues, and uncontrollable blinking; results can last months after application.
Filler is used to contour or give a fuller and plumper appearance to areas like your lips, cheeks, under-eyes, and around the mouth. The procedure only takes 15 minutes to an hour and depending on what filler was used, the results can last from several months to several years.
