Yes. While Botox and fillers are both considered aesthetic injectables, they each work differently to enhance your skin. Below are descriptions of the differences between Botox and fillers.
Known as a neuromodulator, Botox interacts with cell signals that cause muscle twitching and contracting. Botox simply forces muscles to relax, while surrounding muscles continue to act as they normally do. This way, your skin smooths out but allows you to continue to make your normal facial expressions.
Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, restore age-related volume loss, add contouring effects and enhance plumpness. Clinical-grade dermal fillers are gel-like substances that quickly add volume to your face.

If you’re getting Juvéderm or Restylane dermal fillers, you can expect optimal results for up to six to 24 months, depending on which line of filler you choose and your level of volume loss. Pikes Peak ENT welcomes you to come in for additional injections once your treatment starts wearing off.
