You shouldn’t confuse dermal fillers with botox. When we use dermal fillers, we add volume in the area hyaluronic acid is injected.
Dermal fillers are directly injected into the skin by needles and it will give a plumping effect in the area we will inject it.
Dermal fillers last longer than Botox, between 6months to 2years.
Areas we can inject dermal fillers
- Add volume in the area from nose to mouth in cases patients have a deep crease there
- Add volume to the lips and reshape the edges of the lips
- Add volume to the temporal bone (cheekbone) in case a woman wants to look more feminine
Many patients choose to get a combination of dermal fillers and botox because they will get a remarkably younger face.
