If you are new to the realm of cosmetic treatments, you may be puzzled by the fine line of distinction between Botox and fillers. Both these treatments are intended to improve the appearance of your face using a light-handed approach. Here are the main parameters for assessing the differences between these procedures.
Botox or Botulinum toxin is a natural and purified protein used for relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. It can treat the dynamic wrinkles or the lines that appear with your expressions like smiling, raising the eyebrows, and frowning. It is considered to be a safe product for cosmetic treatments.
On the other hand, dermal fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid or HA which is injected into the skin using a sharp needle to uplift the skin and eliminate the fine lines. They immediately target the wrinkles and delivers excellent results without leaving any scars.
Botox treatment is used for removing the frown lines, lifting the eyebrows, softening crow’s feet, reducing chin dimpling, softening the bunny lines on the nose, and lifting the corners of your mouth. It can make you look fresh and bright with a youthful charm.
The treatment using dermal fillers can soften the smile lines between the mouth and nose, smoothen the lip lines, conceal the jowls, add fullness to the lips, raise the cheeks, and remove the dark circles. It can restore the natural beauty of your face.
Length of Procedure:
Botox can be used for removing the fine lines and wrinkles for a period up to 6 months. After the procedure, these lines fade away gradually over a period of few days. Some patients may need repeat treatment depending on their individual requirements.
In the treatment involving fillers, tiny amount of gel is applied to the skin for providing natural fullness. It usually takes 15 minutes for one session and you can enjoy the results of this treatment for 6 months to 2 years.
Whatever treatment you choose between Botox and fillers, always lay your trust in a reputable clinic having skilled dermatologists.
