Are you sick of deep lines on your face and wish you could get a quick fix for the signs of aging around your mouth and eyes? You may think that Botox is your only option, but in fact there are other injectable cosmetics that plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Mar Bishara, use to treat some lines on the face. That’s why it’s important for individuals to understand the difference between injectables like Botox and facial fillers, like Juvederm.

What Botox does:
Botox and Xeomin are injectable medicines used to treat “active” facial lines, meaning those that have only recently formed. The medicine in injected into facial areas with wrinkles. Botox won’t result in a loss of the ability to show emotions on the face – the intention is to make subtle changes that will stop lines from forming while promoting a natural appearance.
What fillers do:
Dermal fillers are used to treat “firmly established wrinkles,” reports ASAPS. In addition to treating deep wrinkles, these cosmetics can alter the appearance of soft tissue – for example, they may be injected into the lips to make one’s pout appear fuller.  Dr. Bishara will be able to tell which one is best for your personal desires.
