Dental XRays

What is Botox?

Botox is a treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In 2002, Botox treatment was approved by the FDA to be used for cosmetic purposes and is considered safe in small doses. It works by temporarily relaxing the targeted muscles for three to four months.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as restore volume to the face. Typical treatment areas include the lips, marionette lines, smile lines, and cheeks to give a more youthful appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Botox and Dermal Fillers

If you’re unhappy with certain features of your face or are interested in achieving a younger look, Botox or dermal fillers may be a good option. Some of the many benefits they can provide include:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, lips, or forehead
  • Adding fullness to your cheeks
  • Plumping up thin lips
  • Improving the appearance of scars
  • Boosting self-esteem

Are Dermal Fillers and Botox Bad for You?

Dermal Fillers and Botox are considered to be very safe when administered by a trained professional. While this is true, they do come with some potential side effects, including:

  • Bruising
  • Headache
  • Mild pain or swelling at the injection site
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dry or watery eyes
  • Numbness
  • Filler migration or unevenness
  • Drooping eyelid
  • Drooling


What’s The Difference Between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Botox works best in areas where you’d like to improve wrinkles visible with expressions, particularly on your upper face. On the other hand, Dermal Fillers are beneficial in helping you restore volume and fullness where you may have lost it, including in your lips and cheeks.

How Do You Know If Dermal Fillers or Botox Are Right For You? 

While everyone wants to look younger, Dermal Fillers and Botox aren’t for everyone. The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sherrod. Based on your medical history and the goal you have in mind, she will let you know if Fillers or Botox treatment would be a safe and effective option.
