Botox vs. fillers is often a big topic of discussion. While the two techniques have a similar function – both reduce the amount of lines and wrinkles on the face without surgery – they work in completely different ways.
Botox is essentially an agent that can selectively reduce the movement in areas of the face that are most likely to wrinkle. This has the dual effect of minimizing wrinkles in the here and now, while also reducing the amount of future wrinkling caused by such movements as laughing or frowning.
Fillers are pretty much exactly what the word implies, a family of substances suitable for injection into the face which can fill in wrinkles or also be used to gently sculpt certain aspects of the face’s appearance and sometimes induce collagen production .
The only way to decide which is appropriate for you is to come in for an appointment with Dr. Ramachandran. She will be happy to provide you with all the information you need to decide which approach is best for you.
