An increasing number of people are looking for effective ways to preserve their appearances and enhance their natural beauty. While the fountain of youth may still remain elusive, the strides in top of the range cosmetic surgeries and treatments now are allowing you to look your best for years to come.

As you get older, lines and wrinkles will appear on your face, which are dead giveaways of your age due to a loss of elasticity, collagen, and tightness. Luckily for you, there are two fantastic cosmetic procedures to have you looking youthful once again – Botox and fillers.

To help you to make the right decision for your personal needs, this guide is going to walk you through the plus points of each treatment so that you are informed and ready to make a commitment to looking amazing.


Botox refers to the use of Botulinum Toxin to soften the lines caused by a muscular contraction in the face by relaxing the muscles, which also allows for creases in the skin. These creases are caused by repetitive actions (such as smoking and lines around the lips) which begin to fade as the Botox prevents them from being reinforced.

The main areas that Botox helps with are:

  • Bunny Lines (scrunching around the nose)
  • Cobblestone Chin (scrunching around the chin)
  • Drooping mouth corners
  • Eyebrow Lift

Botox is a fast and effective treatment for the above ailments that has a temporary effect. This means that you do have to have the procedure done again, but it also means that the side effects of Botox are temporary as well.

The main side effect is that the Botulinum Toxin can trickle into other muscles of the face causing some drooping, but this is not evident after a maximum of four weeks and is often minimal.

Botox is priced according to how many areas of the face you have done. At Luxe Skin, 1 area costs £175, 2 areas are £250, and 3 areas are £325.


Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid, which is already present in


to retain moisture and plumpness. The filler will add volume to the skin by helping it maintain more moisture and even helping in the production of collagen, which will give your skin a youthful lift. The main uses of fillers are:

  • jawline fillers
  • chin fillers
  • tear through filler
  • face fillers

The minor side effects include some bruising, redness, and swelling which resolves itself in around two weeks. As with Botox, sometimes the filler can filter into unwanted places and the remedy to this is to have the filler dissolved and the procedure done once again.

Thus, the main difference between Botox and fillers are that Botox helps to reduce lines whereas fillers can actually be used to sculpt the face and the fillers before and after show an evident positive change to those who decide to get them.

For fillers, the cost is determined by per 1ml syringe, which each cost £375 as Luxe only use premium fillers.

“I am really happy”

I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
