Ileana Perez-Quintairos, Dermatologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says fillers are different than Botox: “Botox takes away movement, it’s injected to decrease muscle movement, but fillers fill; you’re injecting a gel type product underneath a indentation or a wrinkle”.

She explains the nasolabial fold is the classic place where they use fillers and also can be used between the eyebrows and underneath to fill in the indentations and the sunken look of the eyes and they can be used to resuspend the cheek to restore volume to the face.
