What is the difference between Botox and Restylane?

The difference between Botox Cosmetic and Restylane is a very common question in our practice.  Consumers hear these names often but aren't sure how the two products are used.  Botox Cosmetic and Restylane are brand names.  Besides Restylane, there are many other fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane, Sculptra etc.  Botox Cosmetic is a product designed to temporarily relax specific muscles in the face to prevent or help resolve existing lines and wrinkles.  This is a very safe product with an excellent safety record.  Although Botox addresses fine lines and wrinkles, it does not add volume such as fillers.

Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, etc) are hyaluronic acid products that work by attracting water to the area to enhance volumization. Hyaluronic Acid is found in all of our bodies and is a very safe, natural product found in all living cells. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb 1,000 times it's weight in water, which is why these products are so effective at providing volume to the face.  Fillers work well to add volume and definition to the mouth, cheeks, tear trough area (under the eyes), the laugh lines (nasolabial folds), and even to enhance shaping around the chin and corners of the mouth.  Often, Botox works well to relax the muscle that is causing deep furrows between the eyebrows (glabella area) but will not affect changes to very deep, older folds.  When this happens, these wrinkles are referred to as static creases.  This condition is then addressed by adding a small amount of a filler to fill in these folds.  The results are often dramatic and a pleasing cosmetic result.  By combining both modalities (Botox Cosmetic, Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane) patients are able to achieve a very natural, appealing outcome.  http://www.celibre.com/wrinkles.aspx.
