I just had my first Restylane injection after using Botox for the past 3 years. I had a lot more bruising and sensitivity from the Restylane than I ever had with Botox. Why is this?
I’ve been thinking about getting an injectable filler for a while and would like a little guidance. Do you have any opinions on Restylane versus Botox? What are the pros and cons of each?
Restylane and Botox are two very different things. Restylane is a type of filler. There is also Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse. Fillers are used to fill static or resting lines on the face. The most common areas where this is used are your smile lines and marionette lines. Fillers are also used to plump up your lips. Botox, on the other hand, is not a filler but an injection where the chemical temporarily relaxes the muscles from moving. It is commonly used for forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet (corner of your eyes). It is also used to treat heavy under arm sweating.
