The Difference Between Botox and Dermal Fillers

CG Cosmetic understands the difficulties that come with aging. Everyone has dbotox vs dermal fillersays where they look in the mirror and are concerned with what they see. Whether or not you see deep lines and wrinkles, or fine lines, aging is inevitable. The question then, is what can you do about these signs of aging? Perhaps the most common solution people have heard of is Botox. However, Botox is not the only option. While CG Cosmetic offers Botox procedures, we also offer Dermal Fillers.


Most men and women have heard about celebrities using Botox to rejuvenate their skin and appear more youthful, but Botox isn’t just for celebrities. Botox has provided amazing and effective results that are also safe and convenient for many individuals.  Facial lines and wrinkles often occur because of the way your muscles work underneath your skin. Overtime, as muscles tense due to making repeated facial expressions, your skin creates lines and wrinkles.  Botox works by gently relaxing the muscles in your face, softening the wrinkles and leaving you with long-lasting smooth skin. CG Cosmetic patients have described their Botox experience as quick and painless, with most appointments taking less than one hour.

Dermal Fillers

CG Cosmetic also specializes in Dermal Fillers. Different from Botox, dermal fillers work by lifting and plumping up skin, replacing collagen lost by the natural aging process.  In addition to gently filling the skin, most dermal fillers also stimulate skin to encourage it to produce more collagen on its own. Dermal fillers are a great way to fix lines and wrinkles in the face, but they are also used for lip augmentations, creating fuller, plumper lips.

CG Cosmetic – Benefits of a Facelift

CG Cosmetic LogoThe board certified surgeons employed by CG Cosmetic perform a wide range of procedures at their Miami facility.

Some of the most commonly sought out procedures involve restoring patient’s youthful appearance. Your face is one of the main parts of your identity. When aging causes your facial appearance to look haggard or worn, it can take a toll on your confidence. Fortunately, facelifts are a common solution that can restore a natural and youthful appearance and restore lost self esteem.

A few specific problems that occur in the face due to aging include:

  • Development of jowls
  • Loss of elasticity in the face
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Deep creases
  • Loss of neck and skin contours

Before patients undergo the facelift procedure, they are able to attend a free consultation with the skilled physicians at CG Cosmetic.

During this time, they will be evaluated to ensure they have good overall health, realistic expectations, and good skin elasticity. In addition, the pros and cons of the surgery are discussed, as well as possible risks and complications. The surgeons will then explain the procedure step by step so there are no surprises.

First, an incision is made behind the hairline and then the skin is separated from the muscles underneath.

The facial muscles are then tightened and the skin is repositioned for a tighter fit. At the incision site, the excess tissue is trimmed, revealing smoother and younger looking skin. Most patients require around two weeks for recovery.

After the surgery, wrinkles and folds in the face that make a person look tired are no longer an issue.

Patients will still age naturally, but will look and feel more youthful. A majority of patients who receive treatment from CG Cosmetic claim that the results of the surgery are rewarding and greatly outweigh the minimal discomfort involved in the recovery process.
