BOTOX AND FILLERS 101:
Botox is known as the anti-wrinkle treatment whereas fillers are used to contour and shape your face.
Botox will decrease motion, therefore helping with wrinkle lines, whereas fillers will help regain fullness in areas to re-contour your face.
For example, you would use Botox in areas like forehead “11”, frown lines, crows feet, and anywhere where motion is the key component. You would use fillers for the bags under your eyes, loss of cheek volume, lower face (jowling), and you can use them to reshape or re-contour your nose, chin, lips, and jawline.
