How Botox and Filler Conceal Signs of Aging

Both Botox and fillers are cosmetic skin treatments that help improve your aesthetic appearance as you age. The shape and structure of the human body change as people grow old. The components such as fat, water, and hydrochloric acid start decreasing, leading to the flatness of the skin that reveals aging lines below the eyes and wrinkles. This affects your overall look and personality.

Luckily Fillers and Botox treatment are there to save you. When considering these kinds of treatment, you should talk with your professional practitioner to know the true aspects of the treatment for your best interest. In this article, you will learn several differences between Botox and fillers and what to expect.

Here are the differences between the two treatments:


Botox is a neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin. It is injected into the face to target fine lines, facial creases, and crow’s feet. Botox smoothens and relaxes the facial muscles to soften the wrinkles and lines. The Botox injections work by weakening the facial muscles temporarily by blocking the nerve signals that enable muscles to expand and contract. When getting your Botox treatment in Vienna, our dentist will complete the process within an hour. We’ll make sure it is minimally invasive and won’t have downtime.

Botox also treats dynamic wrinkles. Injections in the armpits help shed off excess sweating, and injections in the jaw muscle prevent teeth clenching and grinding that is caused by TMJ. After Botox has been injected into your face, it’ll start showing results after two to ten days. It depends on the individual’s reaction to a toxin and the type of toxin used. Botox treatments are the most usually performed of all cosmetic procedures done in the United States.

What is Botox Used for?

Botox injections are placed around the mouth and eyes between the eyebrows, forehead, and neck. Dynamic lines mostly develop in these areas. Botox help by smoothening these lines. Cosmetic Botox help in slimming the appearance of the face and softening the jawline. The injections are placed in the muscle responsible for chewing. This helps relax the muscle and inhibit movement while allowing the normal functioning of the facial expression and the jaw.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The results can last for six months. However, botox begins wearing off after three months. Therefore, your practitioner will schedule other appointments to get repeat anti-aging Botox treatments to maintain your desired look.

Side effects

While going for Botox therapy and treatment, you might experience some side effects that include:

  • Swelling
  • Feeling itchy
  • Nausea
  • Dropping eyelids
  • Numbness
  • You might experience redness on your face


Dermal fillers are used to target static wrinkles and other visible signs of aging on the face. They replace the lost volume and plump up the targeted areas on the face. This firms up the sagging areas of the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Also, some fillers stimulate collagen production to boost the skin‘s elasticity and strength. Fillers are made from a variety of materials that affects their texture as well as longevity. Your practitioner will choose one based on the area of the treatment.

There are different types of fillers, one being hyaluronic acid fillers. These fillers are popular for their predictable results, safety record, and availability. They are mostly used to define and plump lips providing a natural-looking outcome.

What Are Fillers Used for?

Dermal fillers are used to augment the cheeks and lips and add volume to areas of the face that show signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid fillers treatment is best appropriate in treating depressed acne scars. For greater benefits, they can be mixed with other treatments.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Most fillers last between six months to two years. However, when you get fat injections, it is considered permanent. Your practitioner will advise you on when you should repeat treatments for maintenance of the desired fillers skin.
