The Difference Between Dermal Fillers & Wrinkle Relaxers

At Boss Gal Beauty Bar, we offer Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Relaxers to smooth visible signs of aging. A popular question people have is: What’s the difference!?

Wrinkle Relaxers, such as Botox or Dysport, stop dynamic wrinkles from forming by freezing the muscle below. For example, if you have wrinkles between your brows when you make an angry face, Botox and Dysport will temporarily freeze the muscle in that area to stop wrinkles from forming.

Getting Botox or Dysport injections is quick, simple and pretty low on the pain scale. We use a tiny needle to inject Botulinum toxin into the muscle just below the skin. There’s almost no downtime, but it does take about a week for results to appear, and you’ll see maximum results within two weeks. The effects of Botox and Dysport injections last approximately 3-4 months. Then come back to Boss Gal Beauty Bar for more!

The big difference between Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers is that instead of freezing the muscle below the skin to stop wrinkles from forming, Dermal Fillers truly fill in the wrinkle to smooth the skin. As we age, the fat pads on our face get smaller. Fillers are used to restore this volume loss and fullness in the face. When it comes to Dermal Fillers, one advantage is that the results are immediate. The primary ingredient in Filler is Hyaluronic Acid, which is found naturally in the connective tissue of your body. There are different fillers for different areas of your face. Depending on the type of filler used, you can expect the results to last between six months and two years.

At Boss Gal, we use a variety of fillers because each product is slightly different and therefore a better fit depending on the area, and level of wrinkles or aging we are trying to correct. These include, Juvederm, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Restalyne, Lyft, Refyne and Defyne. While clients sometimes have a pre-determined filler they would like to use, we find that best results come after a face-to-face consultation with your injector.  The area you want to treat and amount of “filling” you desire has a big impact on the proper selection of filler to use.

While both wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers have their advantages, both are excellent choices. To get the ultimate anti-aging results, it is often recommended to use both products for a youthful, natural look.  The expert injectors at Boss Gal Beauty Bar will work with you to determine the best choice to achieve your desired results. You can also schedule a FREE consultation to learn more about the benefits of both services.
