Botox® vs. Dermal Fillers: Which Lasts Longer?
You can expect results from Botox® to last three to four months, and many people schedule maintenance treatments to keep their smooth, refreshed look. Our Restylane brand of dermal fillers last an average of 6-12 months depending on where you are using them. Fillers designed for use in or around the lips will have greater flexibility but will often not last as long as firmer fillers designed for the cheeks or deep folds.
Botox® vs. Dermal Fillers: Which is Right for Me?
Most people have dynamic wrinkles caused by muscles and static wrinkles caused by skin laxity. If you have both types of wrinkles, you could benefit from Botox®, dermal fillers, or both. You can safely have both at the same time for an even more relaxed, youthful look. If your primary concerns focus on areas like the brows, Botox® may help, while if you feel more concerned about loose skin and folds, dermal fillers may work better.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox® or Dermal Fillers?
You may be a good candidate for Botox® or dermal fillers if you have lines and wrinkles you want to address. Both products have excellent safety records and received FDA approval for use as injectables. You may not be a candidate if you have had a reaction to a similar product in the past or if you have a skin infection.
