Let’s take a look!
Dermal Fillers and Botox have completely different ingredients
Dermal Fillers or fillers containing Hyaluronic Acid provide the effect of making the skin smooth and full of vitality. Dermal Fillers are used to shape certain points on the face without the need for surgical intervention such as nose augmentation, cheek filling, and plumping lips. The main ingredients of Dermal Fillers are many types, however hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, PLLA, … are the most commonly used types. On the market today, fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Restylane, Teosyal are often used because of their high effectiveness and guaranteed safety.
Botox is a protein produced from a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum, or in other words, it is a toxin of this bacteria. Unlike Dermal Fillers, Botox absolutely does not have any other ingredients or categories and has applications in the medical and cosmetic industries with the function of beautifying and reducing muscle contractions.
Mechanism of action of Botox and Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers and Botox have completely different beauty mechanisms with functions related to improving facial beauty. Filler injections will help fill sunken and sunken facial areas such as the cheeks and temples, or shape the chin, nose, and lips to make them more beautiful, taller, and more attractive.
In contrast to Dermal Fillers, Botox has absolutely no function to fill defective areas, but Botox has a direct impact on the nervous system to help reduce the risk of muscle contractions and the formation of signs of aging on the face.

Using fillers in cosmetic surgery brings the effect of lifting the nose, thickening the lips, and completely overcoming all facial defects. The effective time of using Dermal Fillers lasts from 6 to 24 months depending on the patient’s condition as well as the skill of the cosmetic doctor.
In contrast, Botox injections are effective for only 4 to 6 months and directly affect skin wrinkles, shape the smile as well as create angles for the face. Botox injections bring clear results but are not very intensive if you want to intervene too much to completely overcome facial defects.
