BOTOX, DYSPORT & FILLER

The line between Botox vs fillers can sometimes seem a bit blurred, so if you’re just starting to look into injectables, it might feel confusing knowing which is best for you. Keep reading below to find out which injectable would best suit your needs.


Botox & Dysport

In aesthetics, Botox or Dysport can be injected directly into the tiny muscles of facial expression to relax the muscle tension on the skin, where they create lines with age; this then relaxes the lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to relax muscles that pull down on the face, for example in the neck muscles, to give a lifting effect. Results last about 3-4 months, depending on the individual.


Side effects with Botox are rare but, as with any injection into the skin, there is a risk of bruising and tenderness at the injection site. Headache can sometimes be experienced by people on the first day of treatment too.

When getting any treatment, it’s extremely important that you feel safe in the hands of your practitioner. Never be afraid to ask lots of questions.


In relation to the treatment itself, for cosmetic purposes it is difficult to say who it’s ‘right’ for – this is always a matter of opinion and should be a joint decision between the patient and practitioner.


Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers are a group of injectable medical products designed to add volume to tissues. There are many different types of fillers, such as hyaluronic fillers (the most common type), and collagen-stimulating fillers (such as Sculptra). Fillers can be injected into areas to replace lost volume and revitalize the skin. There are many different consistencies and forms of fillers, for use in different areas.


Results can last for 12-18 months, but can be reversed before that time if the patient desires.
