3. Dermal fillers can be very different.
Botox is a brand name for a single formula; “dermal fillers” is more of an umbrella term that could apply to multiple brand names and formulas.
4. Dermal fillers have varied uses.
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance lip volume, smooth out nasolabial folds and mouth wrinkles, add volume to sunken cheeks, and even help minimize under-eye bags. Some dermal fillers can be used to add volume to hands, thereby minimizing signs of aging.
5. Duration of results can vary.
Botox results tend to last anywhere from three to four months, while dermal filler results can last for six month to two years, depending on the formula and its placement.
