What is the difference between Botox and Fillers?


Article by Dr Jules Nabet

Botox and fillers explained graphic

The second in a 3 part series with  renowned French Cosmetic Doctor Dr Jules Nabet  where we ask how Botox and Fillers can help rejuvenate your face.

Botox and fillers are NOT the same thing, although often administered together to treat the face as a whole, the two products are very different. Botox relaxes the muscles, while filler is used to add volume to areas that become hollow with ages.

I am working with a new filler Teosyal RHA a new facial injectable filler that has been designed to take into account facial dynamism.

Since the introduction of the first hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers more than 30 years ago, a number of advances in composition, production and applications of the products have been made. Despite the huge number of available fillers on the market, a patient need is not currently answered; the dynamism of the face. None of the current available products takes into account the daily movements of the face and the facial expressions apart from Teosyal RHA a new facial injectable filler that has been designed to take into account facial dynamism.

The face is mostly dynamic: the lips, the cheeks, the forehead, the chin, the nasolabial folds, the marionette lines.  All these areas have been treated with fillers for years and many positive results have been shown. However, the fillers were always designed to take into account the static outcome of the treatment even though all these areas are actually moving!

Your face shouldn’t be frozen, if you can’t move your face it hasn’t been done correctly. It’s all about where you put it and how much is used. It should be impossible for the untrained eye to tell if you’ve had any.  People should say you look well not what have you had done?  So the key is subtle, understated approach, keeping expression in the face.

Everyone who tries Botox will see an improvement in the appearance of their fine lines and wrinkles. Your face will always look smoother after Botox.  But results vary from person to person depending on how strong your facial muscles are and the particular problems they are trying to correct.  Some women have frown lines at 20 and others don’t start to notice lines until 30 or 40.

Frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes are two areas that Botox can really help to improve, but deep, vertical lines around the mouth and cheeks won’t see much benefit. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause the wrinkles, which is why vertical lines caused by gravity and sagging are much harder to correct.  If you’re looking to recreate lost fullness in the cheeks or improve hollows under eyes, injectable fillers can be used to plump the face.

The one thing to remember is that the UK is pretty lax in regulation for injectables, although it should only be a medical professional but some others e.g. hairdressers and beauty therapists are doing injections such as Botox which is really not advised.  You should be going to doctor who has years of experience

Dr Jules Nabet, a charming Frenchman and is one of the best Botox doctors in the UK, he is also well known for fillers.  Botox has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 90’s.  A minute quantity of Botox relaxes the muscles responsible for frown lines and wrinkles and smoothes out the skin.
