BOTOX vs. Fillers: Which Cosmetic Injectable Is Right for Me? By The Landings Surgical Centre on March 06, 2024

woman smilingOur HalifaxNova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island patients have plenty of options when it comes to aesthetic improvement. From facial plastic surgery to non-surgical solutions, we offer many solutions at Landings Surgical Centre.

Should you get BOTOX injections or dermal fillers? To help you better understand which cosmetic injectable is best for you and how these options compare to cosmetic surgery, just keep reading. 

Should You Get BOTOX Cosmetic?

We offer the world-famous cosmetic injectable BOTOX® Cosmetic, which when injected provides transformative reductions of fine lines and wrinkles in both the face and neck areas. If you want to eliminate crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles with a fast treatment that lasts for about 3 to 6 months, you should consider BOTOX. 

It is also important to understand what exactly BOTOX treats. Its effects are achieved by halting the muscle contractions that cause fine lines and wrinkles. If your primary cosmetic concerns are caused by these contractions, then BOTOX may be right for you. 

Or Should You Choose Dermal Fillers?

We offer a broad range of dermal fillers that can be injected to address a vast array of aesthetic issues. These include crow’s feet, marionette lines, vertical lip lines, nasolabial folds, thin lips, lost facial volume, and acne scars.

Many patients choose a dermal filler option instead of BOTOX because dermal fillers can provide the plump and supple look that many people naturally lose through aging, in addition to addressing wrinkles. 

JUVÉDERM is one of the many popular cosmetic injectable brands we offer. Its results can last for anywhere from one to two years depending on the areas treated. Another one of our most popular dermal fillers is TEOSYAL, which is renowned for its natural-looking outcomes. Certain brands of TEOSYAL that we offer can eliminate wrinkles while also providing increased volume.

Facial Plastic Surgery Achieves the Most Transformative Changes

There are many valid reasons that people opt for cosmetic injectables over plastic surgery. Some people suffer from medical conditions that make plastic surgery risky. Others may choose injectables because they are more affordable than something like a facelift. Another reason for choosing injectables is wanting to dip your toes in the waters of aesthetic enhancement without first jumping to an invasive procedure. 

But the truth is, no matter how good a non-surgical procedure is, it cannot provide the same level of improvement as a plastic surgery. If you want the most dramatic change possible, then you should consider one of the many facial plastic surgeries we offer. These include facelift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery

We Also Offer the Mini Facelift

If you do not want a full facelift but desire a more significant level of change than BOTOX can offer, you may want to consider a mini facelift. This targeted surgery eliminates excess fat and skin in the middle to lower-third of the face with less scarring, fewer risks, and a faster recovery than a traditional facelift.
