Should I Choose Dermal Fillers or BOTOX®?

Jun 29, 2013

If you live in the Clearwater area and you’re looking for younger, revitalized skin on your face, Gayoso Plastic Surgery can help. We have a number of procedures that can give you the new look you desire. BOTOX® is one well-known and popular option.


BOTOX is, indeed, an excellent choice for many of our patients. It is commonly injected and has an excellent safety record.

However, we offer a number of choices for your consideration. You can also choose from a number of dermal fillers as well as BOTOX.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made from naturally occurring materials or biologically derived products, such as hyaluronic acids. They work by filling in hollowed or sunken areas of your skin and stimulating the growth of collagen in your body.

By contrast, BOTOX works by blocking the muscles in your face from receiving the signals that tell them to contract. No contraction, no wrinkling.

Your choice of injectable treatments will be determined in large part by the specific condition you are addressing. BOTOX is designed to eliminate wrinkles. Our dermal fillers, on the other hand, can treat wrinkles, but also:

Fill hollows under the eyes
Plump your lips
Augment your chin

Dr. Gayoso will help you decide whether BOTOX or a dermal filler is right for you. If you do choose a dermal filler, we have three different options from which you can choose.

If you live in the Clearwater, Florida area and you want to learn more about the difference between BOTOX and dermal fillers, please contact Gayoso Plastic Surgery today.
