Jenny is absolutely correct. However, I just wanted to add a few details and clarity.
There are difference between the various dermal fillers that one can find on the market these days.
When looking to have fillers for the first time it is imperative that you understand that there can be hyaluronic acid based fillers (e.g Restylane or Juvederm, Macrolane, Perlane), calcium hydroxyapatite based fillers (e.g Radiesse) or poly-l lactic acid based fillers (e.g Sculptra).
They each work in different ways and all have their own contraindications (reasons not to treat that is). There are certain areas that should not be treated with Radiesse, notably the lip body for example.
Therefore, when it comes to fillers make sure you know what exact filler it is and also ask questions about where it can and can't be used on the body. If your cosmetic doctor/practitioner is not aware of the risks or cannot adequately explain the pitfalls, then I would advise you politely thank them and leave.
Remember, it is better to be safe than become a victim of rogue injectors.

Dermal fillers are substances that are injected into the skin. They remain there for 6 to 18 months and while there attract water to the treatment site, and some also encourage collagen formation around the site as well; thus, the plumping effect is achieved by the combination of the presence of filler itself, as well as the increase in water and often the increase in collagen production at the treatment site.
Fillers are used primarily in the lower two thirds of the face to replace normal volume loss that is associated with aging, fill deep wrinkles in the lower face and those in the upper face that do not respond to treatment with Botox or Dysport, correct the appearance of crooked noses, correct the appearance of bags under the eyes, and for many other corrections.
The benefit of dermal fillers in the treatment of wrinkles occurs due to their plumping effect; when the skin of the treated area is stretched to it’s youthful size, wrinkles in that area fade.
Botox (or Dysport) and Dermal Fillers are often used in combination to achieve the best results. They may be used simultaneously in the same treatment area depending on the desired treatment outcome.

Hi, I know you've got many responses to your question but I felt the need to answer in a more simplified way without all the medical jargon, can be very daunting!
Derma fillers work by sealing your fine lines with temporary or permanent fillers. You'll find each type with various benefits. The temporary fillers will only provide momentary effects. It will require ongoing treatment and successive visit to your doctors.
Whereas Botox is done in a very simple manner. Unlike derma fillers, they are injected to the muscles so the wrinkles can slowly fade away. While derma fillers induce medications to fill in the blank spots on the face, the Botox toxin is administered to cure those lines instead.
If you have a good health and a Doctor who can perform Botox to a highly professional standard like our Doctors at Court House Clinics London, you can be guaranteed of the best cosmetic results. Be sure to inquire well about the therapists so you can have a safe procedure done on your skin. It is very important to know the credibility of the doctor and the treatment to avoid having problems later on.
Hope this helps if only a little!

This is a very good question to ask.
I agree with Jenny's response and I often find that clients are frightened of botox or filler as they mix the two up.
Botox is a toxin which reversibly attaches to the muscle nerve endings in the area it is injected. The action of the muscle is stopped, for the time it takes for the nerves to regenerate their action at the neuromuscular junction. It works beatifully in the upper face to smooth the frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. If you gently smooth the areas with your fingers you will get a gestimate of the effect Botox will give you. It can also be used to smooth fine lines around the lips (smokers lines), chin dimples and the platysmal bands on the neck.
On the whole Botox treatments should last 3-4 months. Some lucky clients last a lot longer, some a little less.
Fillers on the other hand are injections of hyaluronic acid - a gel like substance - into various skin depths depending on the areas which are required to be filles. Hyaluronic acid (HA)used in premium fillers is made in 4 estabilshments world wide. HA is a naturally occuring product found in jooint spaces and skin layers in your body. As it is naturally occuring your body doesn't react to it or try to fight it so once injected the product is slowly broken down by your own system, which in turn infiltrates more collagen and elastin into the area creating increased elasticity to the skin. So after a few treatments you will need it less and less as we build your own collagen back up.
Fillers should last 6 -18 months. A wide span of time I know but it depends on your own body's abiliy to break down product, and of course how much is put in!
Filler is used to treat stubborn skin folds, nasolabial lines (nose to mouth), marionet lines (at the side of the mouth to chin) to upturn the corner of the mouth as it slowly stoops with age and of course to increase the volume of lips and cheeks.
Some fillers come with local anaesthetic already others need pre injection with a nerve block.
I hope this is helpful.

Saraty, a lot of the comments cover a lot of the things you need to know about the diffrence between Botox and fillers but probably the most important two things you need to do are to get assessed by someone who is well qualified in the field and then ensure that whoever treats you has a lot of experience of the various techniques that you might need. The only other thing I would mention would be to avoid permanent fillers as in general they are less predictable. Hope this helps.

Although Botox and fillers are both used for treating lines and wrinkles on the face, they are very different products. Botox is an injection containing botulinum toxin, a powerful agent that paralyses the nerves and muscles. This is used in minute quantities to stop certain facial muscles from working, in order that they stop causing wrinkles. Therefore Botox works very well before the wrinkles are deep set.

Once deep set wrinkles develop, the best treatment is often using a filler. Fillers usually contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that can be used to fill out the grooves.

Both products are not permanent, and will last for different lengths of time depending on how much is used and what exact product is used.

Botox is a muscle relaxant, so it works best for wrinkles caused by muscle overactivity such as frown lines, forehead lines and crows feet. The effects last for about three months. Dermal fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid - a natural substance found in the body's skin. When injected it literally fills out the wrinkle from underneath. It is therefore used to add volume to the face, to fill in deep wrinkles and to shape and add volume to the lips. You can have botox and dermal filler treatment for deep frown lines.

Hi
thanks so much Jenny for your clear answer so if i got it right the best option for nasal fold will be botox ?i am only 34 but i just cant cope with my new nasal fold i am having since my last pregnancy due to weight gain..now i lost the weight but the lines around my mouth wont go!!

If you have a fold which is exaggerated when you smile - known as a naso labial fold - then fillers is definitely the best option for that area, not Botox. Botox can leave you with relaxed muscles around the mouth which can cause problems such as with smiling, drinking etc. Tracy

my fold is not deep but i just cant get used to it!! what would be the best dermal fillers to choose? would you advice juvederm?
thanks a lot

HI, BOTOX IS USED TO TREAT GENERALLY THE UPPER HALF OF THE FACE - FOREHEAD, CROWS FEET AND FROWN LINES AND IT WORKS BY RELAXING THE MUSCLE THAT CAUSES LINES IN THESE AREAS. FILLERS WORKS BY PUTTING PRODUCT INTO THE SKIN TO PLUMP IT OUT AND IS GREAT FOR NOSE TO MOUTH LINES, LIP LINES AND LIPSTICK BLEED TYPE LINES AS WELL AS FROWN LINES, ALSO GOOD FOR CHEEK VOLUME.

Hello, Botox will relax targeted muscles where the product is placed - often the forehead lines and crows feet, whereas dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra and Radiesse will replace volume that has been lost due to the natural ageing process.
So Botox treats dynamic lines - i.e. when you are moving your muscles and fillers treat static lines, when your face is relaxed and volume loss.
They can be used very successfully as a combination treatment say when you have a deep forehead furrow. Initially you would have Botox to relax the movement in that area and then 2 weeks later, (as Botox takes this long to reach full effectiveness) you could have fillers to put the volume back and plump out any static line/s that remained. The other difference with Botox and fillers is that Botox lasts well to 4 months and is usually more or less gone by 6 months but the good dermal fillers such as those I have mentioned above last a year +.
Hope this helps. Free feel to email at jenny@suffolkmedicalclinic.co.uk if you have any queries.

I can fully recommend Ozan . I had botox in December and I really love it. Great , professional service and good price. It is my second treatment but the first made by Ozan and I was found what I was looking for, young look and fullness of satisfaction in ten minutes.
