Injectables or Fillers? What’s the Difference?

Facial Examination

When you want something to help fill the lines and wrinkles, but you’re not ready for a facelift, then it could be time for either injectables or fillers. Many people think the two are the same, but there are very real differences. As we explore these two ways to bring a more youthful look to your face, you’ll understand why your provider chooses one over the other.


Facial fillers have been around since the 1970s. Fillers are used to plump up the skin to fill in wrinkles, plump up the lips or cheek area, improve the jawline and jowls and soften those lines between the nose and mouth and the ones extending from the corners of the mouth. You may be familiar with some of the most popular brands of fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero®.


Injectables are used for many of the same things as fillers are, but they work entirely differently. Injectables relax the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, like the ones between the eyebrows. Some familiar brands of injectables include Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®.

Bruise-free injectables are injected into the skin with a blunt-tipped cannula instead of a sharp needle. This is a wonderful option, reducing the bruising from the commonly used needle procedure. Dr. Stong is one of the few professionals who uses bruise-free injectables with excellent results.

How Do You Know Which One You Need?

When deciding between fillers or injectables, you need to trust a qualified facial plastic surgeon to choose the best option for you. The very best plastic surgeons will consider several things when choosing between the two. Before making the right choice for you, Dr. Stong considers your facial anatomy, your concerns regarding recovery time and your desired outcome.

At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stong offers both injectables and fillers. In addition, Dr. Stong is double board-certified and fellowship-trained, making him one of the premier plastic surgeons available. So, if you are looking for a way to take years off your face, but you don’t want a facelift, either injectables or fillers can bring beautiful, temporary results.
