Botox and dermal fillers are noninvasive cosmetic treatments given through injections.
Botox can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When those nerve signals are interrupted, the affected muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen. Without movement of these selected muscles in the face, certain wrinkles may be softened, reduced, or even removed.
Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging, like the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. The various dermal fillers are designed to treat different signs of aging or other cosmetic issues. The effects of some fillers last 6 months, while others last up to 2 years or longer.
