In brief: BOTOX/RESTYLANE Diff

Botox is a nerve and muscle relaxant.
It causes weakness in the muscles. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic gel that pumps up and fills soft tissue areas. Restylane (dermal fillers) does not change muscular function.

In brief: Difference

Botox works mainly by temporarily inactivating muscles of the forehead and areas of the face thereby reducing deep facial wrinkles.
Restylane (dermal fillers) is a filler which is directly injected in to the wrinkles until fullness is achieved.

In brief: Botox vs. Restylane (dermal fillers)

Botox is a purified protein to reduce the appearance of creases between the brows, forehead, and around the eyes and mouth.
Results are temporary lasting approximately 3-4 months in most facial areas and 2-3 months around the mouth. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic-based filler used to add fullness to hollow areas and by filling in moderate to severe wrinkles.
