Consider this- hyperactive muscles in the forehead and between the eyebrows can make one look overly concerned, angry, or tired. Over time, these muscles cause creases in the skin that become permanent wrinkles.
Botox is a muscle relaxant; it softens the actions of the muscles of the forehead, crow’s foot area, and glabella (area between the eye brows) It makes one look less angry, or tired. The object, though, is to soften, not eliminate. Occasionally, you still need to be able to frown or squint.
Fillers, such as Juvaderm, Radiesse, Belotero, and others, work to decrease appearance of existing wrinkles. Think of a wrinkle as a valley, the filler is injected into the floor of the valley, raising it up; the valley is more shallow and doesn’t catch shadows, and makes make up more effective.
Fillers and Botox can work very effectively either alone or in concert with each other. It depends on your needs.
