Should I use Dermal fillers or Botox

Are Dermal Fillers the same as Botox Treatments?

Should I use Dermal fillers or Botox?

The NHS defines dermal fillers as

“injections used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin and are mainly applied on visible areas of the face like the lips, under eyes, cheeks, chin and neck.”

Botox also know as Botulinum toxin injections is a prescription only medicine

“used for medical treatments that can also be used to help relax facial muscles amongst other uses like migraine, incontinence etc.”

So what the difference from Dermal Filler? Botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles.

Having defined Dermal fillers and Botox we then ask ourselves, Are they safe? Obviously, self-confidence issues forces us to take this route as they are the popular choice for getting plump, youthful skin and smooth skin. Yet again we ask are they safe?


We know the limitations of this injectable treatments:-

  • They are not permanent
  • They have no guarantees that you will achieve the desired effect and improve your beauty

Dermal fillers brands

Four of the most popular brands include: Restylane, Juvederm, Bellafill, ArteFill, Belotero.

Dermal fillers are made from various elements and we can therefore classify them into these four categories which we’ll discuss in another article:-

  • Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Fillers
  • Synthetic Wrinkle Fillers
  • Collagen Wrinkle Fillers
  • Autologous Wrinkle Fillers

Dermal fillers side effects

Most of the articles I have read indicate side effects but I think our readers need to be enlightened a bit more. We shouldn’t confuse reactions to side effects as these are what people experience in short term. For example most people feel sore from injections, you will often see some swelling and redness on area of application, but these a just short term.

To reduce the risk mentioned above Don’t let price guide your decision as sometimes cheap might be expensive in so many ways (complication resulting to infections and medical intervention, make you look worse off etc), Ensure all treatments are done in a medical setting by a qualified doctor with sterile instruments, and take preventative measures like preserving your face using sunscreen.

Dermal fillers lips – Lip enhancement

Based on our research we have found the best clinics use hyaluronic acid wrikle fillers and this is because it has additional benefits which we list below: Hyaluronic acid is found inside of you already, so it’s unlikely that your body will try to reject the filler.

Filler under eyes uk

In an interview recently with one of the top Doctors in Aesthetics who operates Clinic@, he mentioned that the best fillers for the under-eyes (Dark circles) for the vast majority of people are made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. “dark circles” is an umbrella term used to describe various cosmetic concerns around the eyes. Most HA gels act differently when they are under your skin and have different stiffness, flexibility, dispersion, and swelling behaviors. The reason he thinks they are the best is because

“They are soft, pliable, and most importantly, reversible.”

Some of the brands good for fixing dark circles include Belotero Balance, Restylane Silk and Juvederm Ultra and therefore are great choices to treat the tear trough or orbital hollowing.
