Have you started to see age-related changes in your face? Wondering what you can do to turn back the clock? You’re in good company. The beauty of modern dermatology is that it offers an array of targeted solutions for these concerns.
This post features an interactive quiz to help you learn which injectable treatment—a neuromodulator or dermal filler—is best suited for your specific concerns. Before getting started, let’s cover some of the basics of BOTOX injections and dermal fillers to give you a clearer picture of what they can achieve.
What Do Neuromodulators Treat?
Neuromodulators are primarily used to relax the muscles responsible for wrinkles, specifically expression lines like crow’s feet and frown lines. Popular brands you may have heard of include BOTOX, Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and DAXXIFY®. These injectables block nerve signals to the muscles, effectively reducing muscle activity and softening wrinkles. They’re excellent for targeting the dynamic wrinkles that appear when you express emotions.

What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, RADIESSE®, RHA® Collection, and Sculptra®, add or restore volume, plump up lips, and smooth out wrinkles. Rather than relaxing facial muscles, these products add volume beneath the skin to lift and smooth targeted areas. They are excellent for treating age-related volume loss and can contour and sculpt your face for a youthful look.

The Benefits of a Combined Approach
Why not have the best of both worlds? Combining neuromodulators and dermal fillers can offer a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. Neuromodulators tackle those expression lines, while dermal fillers address volume loss and contouring. Together, they offer a more balanced and youthful appearance, delivering results that neither treatment can achieve alone.
