Dermal fillers are different from Botox in that they are used to place volume into the face where it's needed. This is usually used for fine lines, wrinkles, as well as volume loss in the cheeks and mid face. Dermal fillers are usually placed in the cheeks, around the eyes, and around the smile lines. This usually can remove 5 to 10 years off a patient's face. A good candidate for non-surgical dermal fillers is a patient who would like to look 5 to 10 years younger in just 15 minutes. Due to the ease of the procedure, my preferred patients can call and be seen the same day. The difference between Botox and dermal fillers is that fillers are used to fill in lines and areas of volume loss. Botox is used to paralyze muscles to minimize the motion that creates wrinkles.
