Botox VS Filler

How do I know if I need Botox or Juvederm or whatever the other “fillers” there are? My face is starting to get lines and I don’t know what to do. Is it better to get Botox or should I get something else?

There are dynamic and static lines in our faces. The dynamic lines move and are related to movement and expression such as laughing, smiling or arching an eyebrow. When we are young these lines are fleeting but as we age they stay with us and we get things like smile lines (also known as nasolabial folds). The static lines are unrelated to movement and are caused by things like gravity and sun exposure and they are present in your resting face.  Generally, only lines that are related to movement will improve with a neurotoxin and static lines are best treated with dermal fillers. You need to have an experienced injector look at you and discuss options for your unique face.
