With so many options in the market to treat facial fine lines and wrinkles it’s normal when patients have difficulty choosing which treatment works best for them. At London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery in Dubai patients often ask our surgeons, Drs. Roberto and Maurizio Viel, if there is a difference between botox and dermal fillers. The answer is YES!

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is mostly used to address dynamic lines such as frown lines, wrinkles and “crows feet” around the eyes. Botox is injected into the muscles that control facial movement, temporarily blocking the signals from the nerve to the muscles causing wrinkles to relax and soften. In most cases, botox can last from 3 to 6 months.

On the other hand, dermal fillers are commonly used to deal with other static lines, like the nasolabial fold (the lines that run from the corner of the mouth to the corner of the nose). The dermal fillers used by Drs. Roberto and Maurizio Viel contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the human body. When injected beneath the skin, the dermal fillers plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. Results are seen immediately and can last up to 12 months.

Both botox and dermal fillers are effective treatments with proven results and great patient satisfaction. Consult our surgeons, Drs. Roberto and Maurizio Viel to know which is the best treatment for you.
