What is the difference between Botox® and Restylane®?
BOTOX® is a formulation containing botulinum toxin type-A. Botox® is approved by the FDA for cosmetic usage and effectively paralyzes the small muscles of the face. Botox® is used to reduce frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead.
Restylane is a dermal fillers injected just beneath the skin to fill out and reduce small to medium lines and wrinkles. Restylane both fills out the volume of the face and attracts additional water to the area, maintaining a smoother, younger look.
Both BOTOX® and Restylane ® are effective anti-aging treatments which creates a younger appearance. The way the work is very different.
