A very common occurrence in our office is someone that comes in for a consultation for Botox not knowing that what they really need is a filler like Juvederm or Radiesse, or other similar product.  So here is a quick rule of thumb, if your lines or wrinkles look like those around your mouth, like those that start at your nose and frame your mouth, then you need filler – since those lines are caused by a loss of volume in the skin and fillers replace the lost volume.  Also, if you have hallows under your eyes, or your cheeks are thin/flat or even have indentations through them, or an area in your face seems deflated like an old birthday party balloon…then you NEED FILLER.  Think of it as filling a cupcake with yummy age erasing frosting that plumps up the pretty cupcake!
