Botox vs. Dermal Fillers

Many of our patients ask us: What’s the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

While both injection treatments have excellent anti-aging benefits, they are significantly different in terms of how they work, effects, and more. 

Primary Use


  • Reduces appearance of dynamic wrinkles and lines around forehead, eyes, brows, and mouth that are caused by movement
    • Crow’s feet, laughter lines, forehead creases, etc.

Dermal Fillers:

  • Reduce appearance of smile lines, under-eye shadows and wrinkles, and other static wrinkles that occur with age
  • May also reduce appearance of scars
  • Plump lips, cheeks, and hands

How They Work


  • Relaxes muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles

Dermal Fillers:

  • Restore volume to smooth out wrinkles caused by the loss of fat, collagen, and elasticity that occurs over time

Effect Duration

Both options offer long-lasting but temporary results that can be maintained with treatment:


  • Lasts about 3-4 months
  • Needs repeated treatment for upkeep

Dermal Fillers:

  • Effect duration depends on type of filler received
  • Can range from a few months to 2 years
  • Results may last longer than Botox, but still need upkeep treatments
