Which One is Better Botox or Fillers?

Botox vs Fillers
Side effects are uncommon with both Botox and fillers. Botox has been extensively studied for over two decades and has been judged to be one of the safest medications ever used. The fillers are made from materials like hyaluronic acid and calcium which are already in your body, so reactions are extremely rare. This being said, it is important to choose an experienced and qualified injector. Side effects can happen if these injectables are used incorrectly. Each company produces good products. Your doctor or nurse will determine which filler or toxin is best for you and give you options. Hope that helps!
Which is better, Botox or Fillers?
In some instances, BOTOX ® can be used to soften vertical upper and lower lip lines, to reduce muscle bands in the anterior neck, and even to elevate the nasal tip. While there are some good 'lower face' indications for BOTOX ® administration, in my practice the majority of injections are for 'upper face' (especially eye area) rejuvenation.
One truly remarkable consequence of BOTOX ® administration that I have seen over and over again is the gradual complete disappearance of deep, vertical furrows between the eyebrows (frown or 'scowl' lines). With long-standing muscle contraction, the vertical lines between the brows may become actual physical clefts or grooves in the dermis, resulting in creases that are still apparent even when the skin is spread apart tightly with a finger on each side of the crease. In such instances, the initial BOTOX ® injection will soften but not completely eliminate the deep furrow. With regular BOTOX ® treatment, however, such that the frown muscles are never allowed to fully regain their normal ability to contract, the deep furrows may gradually fade completely.

Botox and filler recap
Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid, which your body produces naturally. there is also Radiesse which is nice to use to add volume in the cheeks. I personally like Restylane and Juvederm in the lips. You can also use fillers in the nasolabial folds to make them softer. Get an opinion from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon so they can give you a better idea on what would be best for you. Best of luck

Botox or fillers
You should consult a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon and discuss your concerns. Although Botox and fillers complement each other, they are not interchangeable, since Botox relaxes muscle movement and fillers replace volume loss. Each physician has his/her own preference of products to use so you need to find someone you trust.

Botox and filler's or more like an art. You need not know which are the best companies to produce them other than you want someone who uses products from US manufacturers and not try to import them from other countries to save on cost. So picking the right doctor is your job. The right doctor should be able to explain everything as it specifically pertains to your pretty face and use ethical high-quality products to give you the best results.
In general here is some information about Botox and filler's that might help you understand better.
The molecules of Botox work to stop the communication between muscles and the nerves causing them to over contract. When we make facial movements for example, the muscles are causing the skin to wrinkle, frown and leave permanent lines.
After the injections, it takes a few days to 2 weeks to get the final result. There is really no down-time, while bruising may take place that takes a few days to resolve. It lasts 3-6 months and during this time, the skin has a chance to heal without the pressure from the underlying muscles.
Botox can be used to treat frown lines, forehead lines or those lines around the eyes called crowsfeet. It can also be used to correct smoker’s lines around the mouth, gummy smiles or downward angles of the mouth.
What are fillers then?
There are a number of fillers available on the market. For example, JUVEDERM™, RESTYLANE®, BELOTERO® are fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all living organisms.
Hyaluronic acid is an important component of youthful, supple, elastic skin. It hydrates the skin by holding water, and acts as a cushion and lubricant to reduce damage to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is also involved with the transport of essential nutrients to the skin’s viable cells. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide long-lasting results.
As a result of aging, our cells gradually lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. Studies have shown that older skin typically has lower levels of hyaluronic acid than younger skin.
By adding the fillers, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid levels are restored, re-creating that youthful appearance.
The fillers listed here are considered safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Each filler is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin, and has been proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors.
Rasiesse is a safe, FDA-approved dermal filler that restores a natural, youthful look and lasts for up to a year or more. Radiesse® is composed of smooth round microspheres in a gel carrier. It is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. This convenient treatment fills and corrects smile or laugh lines and nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
For the longest-lasting correction of deep nasolabial folds (laugh lines), Radiesse is a successful instant-result injectable implant, lasting 1 to 2 years. It can also be used to augment cheek bones or redefine the chin. It is additionally the treatment of choice to restore volume to photo-aged hands in an easy, virtually painless procedure.
Sulptra helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds that appear with aging, by replacing lost collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace this lost collagen. Its main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.
Note: This is not an overnight miracle or a quick-fix. It is the first facial injectable that gives you subtle results over time. As it replaces your lost collagen, it gives you a more natural-looking appearance, without giving you away. A full treatment of Sculptra Aesthetic, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last up to two years.
The correct filler choice for you depends on your facial contour, the volume needed to correct, and the anatomical site being injected. It goes without saying that an initial consultation with a professional to choose the correct combination of products for you is just as important as the precise placement of each filler in the face.
Hope this helps!
What is the difference between Botox and Fillers
Botox and fillers work very differently. Botox relaxes muscles that can cause facial wrinkles while fillers work to restore volume to an area that is hollowing and possibly has wrinkles as well. Smile lines are most commonly treated with fillers.
