Home/Blog / BOTOX® Cosmetic vs. Dermal Fillers


Injectable treatments can improve the appearance of many common signs of facial aging. However, with so many options, how do you determine which type of injectable is right for you? During the consultation process, Dr. Jodie Reinertson will review the benefits of each injectable treatment so you can make an educated decision.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and other neurotoxins are designed to temporarily prevent overactive facial muscles from contracting. Consequently, dynamic facial wrinkles such as creases across the forehead or vertical lines between the eyebrows can be smoothed for a more rested, relaxed, and energetic appearance. The effects of this treatment typically lasts 3-4 months.

Dermal fillers are used to treat wrinkles that result from a loss of collagen or fatty tissue. By restoring lost volume with injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, or Sculptra® Aesthetic, you can lift and contour your face or create fuller lips. The duration of your results with dermal fillers will vary depending upon which product is used.

To maintain the rejuvenating effects of injectable treatments, follow-up appointments can be used to help your skin remain at its best. To learn more about our injectable treatment offerings, or to schedule a consultation for a customized treatment plan, please contact us today.
