Fillers are used to fill in areas of the face that showing signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and creases. Fillers such as Dysport are inserted by injection and results being to show in 1 to 2 days. The procedure takes only minutes to administer and results can last 6 months or longer. Botox is an injectable treatment similar to fillers in that it it also injected, takes only minutes to administer, and combats signs of aging, however, there are some differences. Botox targets areas where repetitive muscle movements are causing the lines and creases of the face, rather than a loss of volume. Botox temporarily stops that muscle movement from occurring to reverse the signs of aging. Botox results can be seen in 4 to 7 days and results will last 3 to 4 months.
