What is the difference between dermal fillers and other injectable treatments like Botox and Dysport?
Dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Radiesse, etc…act by adding volume to the area. Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that simply prevent muscle contraction on the face and thereby prevent dynamic wrinkles and lines from forming. Botox and Dysport are great for prevention. Dermal fillers are good for reducing wrinkles and lines or adding plumpness and volume.
