Which is best Botox or fillers?
The simple rule? “Lines of expression need botulinum toxin. Lines at rest need filler.” Dr. Schulman says that while Botox is a great choice for hitting those “crease points” where muscles contract, fillers are best for deep lines that are present even when facial muscles are not contracting.
Where is the safest place for Botox?
It's very safe to use Botox for wrinkles in the FDA approved areas of the forehead, crows feet, and frown lines. Off label use on the nose (bunny lines), upper lip, golf ball chin, and vertical neck bands are also safe when performed by a skilled dermatologist.
Which filler last the longest?
Juvederm and Restylane fillers last longer than other fillers. Juvederm and Restylane are currently the longest-lasting and most durable dermal fillers on the market. Juvederm and Restylane are families of hyaluronic acid fillers with numerous possible formulations.
