Botox and dermal fillers are by far the most popular cosmetic procedures, with millions performed every year. Although they are both used to treat similar concerns, they act very differently. Botox relaxes the muscles to prevent wrinkles caused by muscle movements, while dermal fillers ‘fill-in’ lines and furrows. Although dermal fillers have several different compositions, they are most commonly composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Botox is composed of the botulinum toxin.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by selectively and precisely relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles by interfering with the nerve signals. It is used to treat both fine lines and soften deeper lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and the crow’s feet (the lines spreading out from the corners of the eyes). The clients at True Bliss Medical™ love Botox because it provides excellent results with no downtime.
A tiny needle is used to inject Botox into the area(s) of concern through a quick procedure with minimal discomfort. The treated muscles start to relax within one to two days after the injections and reach their maximum degree of relaxation within two weeks. Results typically last three to four months.
What are the benefits of Botox?
Botox has many benefits, including:
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Minimizes lines and furrows caused by expressions
- Minimally invasive procedure
- No downtime
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables used to rejuvenate the skin, improve overall appearance and restore facial volume. Fillers are used to correct:
- marionette lines
- downturns or “parentheses” around the mouth
- moderate to deep wrinkles
They are also used to:
- enhance lips
- counteract sagging skin
Dermal fillers stimulate neocollagenesis, which is the production of new collagen in the skin. They also plump and hydrate the skin in areas where volume has been lost. Many dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that is naturally produced by the body and is essential to the function of many living tissues. With age, the body’s production of hyaluronic acid slows down; dermal fillers are designed to act like the body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.
The cosmetic professionals at True Bliss Medical™ use dermal fillers for natural-looking, full-volume correction. Results from dermal fillers can last anywhere between 9 months to 2 years, depending on the product used, the area being treated and the desired results.
