Botox® vs. Fillers: Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
Are cosmetic dermal fillers the right aesthetic option for you, or would Botox® be better for the aesthetic transformation you want? Read to learn which anti-aging cosmetic option you should choose.

Today’s dermatology and cosmetic injectable treatments mean that you don’t have to live with older-looking skin or visible lines and wrinkles. You have plenty of treatment options available to you, so that you can perfect your ideal look at any age.

The aesthetic experts at Luxbae Medical Spa of West Hollywood and Glendale, California, have the anti-aging treatment experience you count on to help you achieve your dream results. Talk to our team about your aesthetic goals, and we can help you understand the best cosmetic treatments for you.

Some of the most popular cosmetic options on our menu are Botox® injections and cosmetic injectable fillers. Botox and fillers can address similar aesthetic issues, but have some key differences, as well. Here’s what you need to know.

Wrangling your wrinkles

Botox injections have been a popular anti-aging option for multiple decades and offer a great way to stabilize your facial aging and reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.

When muscles in your face contract, older, thinner skin can start to fall into dynamic wrinkles in locations like your forehead, the sides of your nose, and around the corners of your eyes. These visible lines and wrinkles contribute to an older appearance.

With safe Botox injections, your provider at Luxbae can delicately target the facial muscles that cause your dynamic wrinkles to appear. Botox injections cause selective paralysis, so the muscle movements that bring out your wrinkles won’t occur, giving your skin a smoother, more youthful look. 

Botox treatments can also help to keep deep dynamic wrinkles from developing in the first place, as a preventive benefit.

Restoring lost volume and fullness

If your aesthetic issue has more to do with hollow cheeks or with wrinkles related to lost facial volume, cosmetic injectable dermal fillers might be more your anti-aging treatment style.

Botox works wonders on wrinkles related to your expression, but dermal fillers can actually plump up your face, recreating the volume that used to keep deep nasolabial wrinkles and hollow cheeks from appearing in the first place.

Your provider at Luxbae can help you select the right dermal filler product for you. We use the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families of dermal filler products. Dermal fillers, for the most part, use hyaluronic acid to fill in targeted areas of your face. 

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, but less abundant in your skin as you get older, leading to a crepey skin texture that shows wrinkles easily.

You can address areas of your face with fillers including deep lines around the mouth, thinning lips, undereye bags, and hollow cheeks.

The right cosmetic plan for you

Everyone’s aesthetic treatment needs are different, and it takes a fine hand and careful treatment planning to deliver top-quality cosmetic results. For some of our patients at Luxbae, Botox and dermal fillers together are needed to provide the best possible anti-aging results.
