Botox and filler can both treat wrinkles, but in different ways. Here’s a full breakdown on how these two treatments work differently and why you may want to consider using them in tandem.

Wrinkles, a beautiful sign of wisdom and often the reminder that life often moves too quickly. As a Naturopathic Doctor and cosmetic injector, I believe we can age gracefully while still enjoying the benefits of two wrinkles solutions: botox and filler.

I offer both botox and dermal filler for wrinkles in Kelowna and Kamloops. BC across five locations. While I highly recommend booking in a complimentary consultation to determine if botox or filler (or both!) are better suited for your needs, this article will breakdown the difference between the two, how they work and which option might be best for your specific wrinkle concerns.

What are wrinkles really?

Wrinkles, medically known as rhytids, are the depressions that form on your skin’s surface as a result of the natural aging process. When we age, the dermis begins to thin due to slower elastin and collagen production. This leads to your skin being less efficient in healing and being able to retain moisture. Wrinkles can occur due to aging, sun exposure, smoking, repeated facial expressions, dehydration, poor nutrition, sleep position, pollution, genetic factors and most likely, due to a combination of multiple factors.

Treating Dynamic Wrinkles


Dynamic wrinkles are lines or creases that appear in the skin due to the movement of the muscles beneath it. They’re also often referred to as expression lines, because they’re associated with facial expressions. When we frown, smile, laugh, or squint, dynamic wrinkles may form. For example, the crow’s feet (Lateral Canthal Lines) that appear around the eyes when we smile or squint, the lines that form between the eyebrows when we frown (the glabella), and the lines that appear on the forehead when we raise our eyebrows (frontalis muscle), are all types of dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles can turn into static wrinkles over time, but more on that a little later.

Neuromodulators, or botox as it is commonly referred to, works to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles underneath your skin. The muscles are relaxed, the skin over top will be able to lie smoothly thus, softening the appearance of fine lines. This is especially effective for treating dynamic wrinkles, the lines that appear when you make facial expressions, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
