What is the difference between hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and botulinum toxin?
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and botulinum toxin are both used to treat wrinkles and are injected into the skin using needles. However, their mode of action is completely different. Botulinum toxin reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles, whereas hyaluronic acid dermal fillers restore the volume to your face that has been lost due to the ageing process.10-12
