Anti-Aging Injectables: Botox v. Filler

Whenever people think of injectables, their first thought is often, “should I get Botox or filler?” And the answer is: it depends on the result you’re after! Despite popular belief, Botox and fillers aren’t the same thing, and they provide very different outcomes. 

However, our team at Envision Aesthetics believe both injectables work great to reverse signs of aging and prevent more wrinkles and fine lines from forming. If you’re not sure which option you should choose, keep reading and we’ll break it down for you. 

You should get Botox if…

Botox is a neurotoxin that prohibits muscle movement (no, it doesn’t “freeze” your face). That means you can avoid fine lines and wrinkles that come from squinting, frowning, and smiling. If your major concern is signs of aging that stem from facial expressions, then Botox may be your solution. 

You should get fillers if…

Instead of blocking muscle contractions, dermal fillers replenish the skin with hyaluronic acid to fill in wrinkles, restore lost volume, and even add fullness to your lips. So if you’re dealing with skin laxity or sunken cheeks, you may want to look at fillers. Plus, hyaluronic acid not only plumps skin cells, they also promote collagen production, allowing you to see long-term results. 

Could I get both fillers and Botox?

Of course! Since fillers and Botox use different solutions, they can also work together so you can reap the benefits of both. At Envision Aesthetics, we help our clients build the perfect treatment plan that works best with their filler and/or Botox injections. Treatments may include:
