Unlike Botox, which works by relaxing the facial muscles associated with wrinkles, dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines, restore lost facial volume and reshape facial outlines.These cosmetics do not target facial muscles, but alter the appearance of soft tissue.They are usually injected into the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (laughter lines) or into the lips for non-surgical lip enhancement.

Dermal fillers in Hertford are delivered in a few minutes with instant effects, whereas it can take a few days for the effects of Botox to take place.Filler treatments can last for many months and sometimes even years (depending on the type and the quality of the filler used).

Dermal fillers versus Botox: which one should I choose?

When it comes to choosing what’s best for you, Dr Gordon Black, the principal dentist at Hertford Dental Care, is the best person to help you decide between these two types of skin treatments. Or you may not have to choose – Botox and dermal fillers in Hertford are often used together to achieve the definitive wrinkle free look.
