What is The Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Botox

Are you considering getting a cosmetic treatment but don’t know your options? You may have heard a little about Botox and fillers, but you must figure out the differences and want to learn more.

Today, Vanity Aesthetic Lounge will help you discover how dermal fillers and botox differ from each other with this blog post! See which treatment can best work for you.

Dermal Fillers vs. Botox

Botox has bacteria that have been cleaned up and that freezes the muscles. Botox can help reduce the look of lines and wrinkles caused by moving your face.

On the other hand, dermal fillers have ingredients that add volume to areas that have lost it due to age. They also plump up the skin to eliminate wrinkles and already-forming lines.

Both are minimally invasive, meaning they don’t involve surgery but need a needle. But there are more things to consider when deciding which to choose. Again, if you’re considering injectable facial treatments, which one is best for me?

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers generally make up for lost volume, smooth out lines, and fill in deep wrinkles.

They are gel-like substances injected under the skin to add volume, smooth lines, and folds or change the shape of the face.

Our office uses Restylane, Juvéderm, and Versa fillers to make you look even more beautiful than you already are. More than a million men and women have used fillers to look younger without surgery or recovery time.

Among the benefits of this treatment are the following:

  • Fill out thin lips.
  • Smooth the lines out near the nose and mouth
  • Lift sunken temples and cheeks
  • Reduce the depth of scars
  • Make shallow contours stand out.
  • Get rid of chin lines.

Where We Treat Dermal Fillers

At Vanity Aesthetic Lounge, we treat dermal fillers in different parts of your body based on your needs. Here’s what you can expect:


A needle or cannula is used to inject Hyaluronic Acid (HA)-based filler into the lips to add volume and size for a fuller, more natural-looking pout.


A hyaluronic acid filler works into the cheeks to add volume and give the face a more natural shape.


Hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the “tear trough” area to restore volume and help lessen the look of dark circles under the eyes, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


One sign of growing up is a jawline that isn’t as sharp. With little downtime, you can use this filler to restore the excellent shape of the jawline.


As we get older, our hands look different. With Hyaluronic Acid fillers, the hands can get fuller, making them look younger.


Tiny droplets of hyaluronic acid filler are injected around the ear lobe. This adds volume to the ear and makes it look firmer and younger.

Botox (Neuromodulators)

Suppose you wish to eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines on your forehead. In that case, neuromodulators are the key, specifically Botox.

Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are the best ways to treat and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial furrows. Most procedures take less than 30 minutes so that you can return to your everyday life immediately.

Our staff has had a lot of training to give you good service while keeping your health and safety in mind.

Among the benefits of this treatment are the following:

  • Smooths out small lines and wrinkles
  • Noninvasive, no downtime
  • Approved by the FDA to treat frown lines
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Look younger and refreshed

Where We Treat Neuromodulators

Like our dermal fillers, we treat Botox in different parts of your body based on your needs. Here’s what you can expect at Vanity Aesthetic Lounge.

Forehead Lines

Get rid of those lines across your forehead! A few units of Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau can help prevent or treat wrinkles and lines on your forehead, keeping your face and skin looking young and healthy.

Bunny Lines

People call the wrinkles that form on your nose when you scrunch it up bunny lines. These lines can go away with quick treatment, leaving smooth, beautiful skin behind.

Eyebrow Lift

The eyebrow lift option is a quick fix for tired eyes. Using Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau can make your eyebrows stand up, making you look younger and more alert. Let’s talk about how beautiful your eyes are in our office today!

The Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are the lines that show up just outside the corner of the eye. A few units of Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau will help smooth out those fine lines to keep your eyes looking young.

Laugh Lines

Scowl lines are the lines between your eyebrows that you can usually see when you furrow your eyebrows. You can use Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau to keep these wrinkles from worsening. This will make your skin look smoother and younger.

Lip Lines/Lip Flip

Fewer wrinkles, more smiling! Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau is a quick way to eliminate fine lines around your smile.

Chin Wrinkles

A dimpled or cleft chin is a dominant trait. This means that if a parent is born with it, the child is usually taken with it too. There are many ways to fix a double chin, but Botox or Dysport is the least invasive. Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau can help smooth out a cleft or dimpled chin in a short amount of time.


The platysma muscles are those vertical cords that run down the back of your neck and are easier to see when you clench your jaw. You can use Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau to smooth out these lines, also known as “Turkey Neck.”

The treatment is also called the “Nefertiti Neck Lift” because it can make the neck smoother and look younger. Even though you can see results immediately, it might take a few weeks to see the full effects of the injections.


Have you been told that you sweat too much? Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau can help! The FDA has approved Botox/Dysport to help with sweating too much. By putting Botox or Dysport injections near your sweat glands, we can help you sweat less.


Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau are used to relax the masseter muscle. This improves TMJ symptoms and, in higher doses, makes a face look slimmer. It’s one of the easiest ways to get that “heart-shaped” face that everyone wants!

Headache/Migraine Relief

Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau are put into the face, scalp, and neck to help relieve muscle tension and reduce headaches and migraines.


Have something else in mind? Why don’t we talk about it? Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau can be used in many different ways. Let’s find the best way to treat you.

To sum up, the main difference between Botox and dermal fillers is that Botox relaxes the muscles to stop creases and wrinkles caused by active muscles in the face.

Usually, these muscles are in the upper part of the face, like the forehead and the area around the eyes. Hyaluronic acid is used in dermal fillers to add volume or smoothness to parts of the skin that have lost volume or smoothness.

This can cause lines around the lips, mouth, and cheeks. Botox is a medicine you can only get with a doctor’s prescription, and dermal fillers are just for looks. Again, Botox and dermal fillers are safe and minimally invasive treatments that trained professionals can do.

Most side effects are minor and don’t happen very often. Even though they aren’t very invasive, they both have some risks you should be aware of. Contact us today at Vanity Aesthetic Lounge to set your appointment!
