Botox and Fillers
Why Botox And Fillers Are Popular Cosmetic Treatments
There are many reasons why Botox and fillers are popular cosmetic treatments. One reason is that they help individuals improve aspects of their skin that would be otherwise untreatable. While these procedures have been around many years, there is still confusion as to what they can do for you. We’ve put together everything you need to know about Botox and fillers and how they benefit the skin.
The Difference Between Botox and Fillers
Injectables is the umbrella term used for both Botox and fillers, as they each apply a product directly under the skin and muscle via a syringe to reduce the signs of aging.
Botox is the name of a brand, and there are similar brands such as Dysport on the market as well. Botox works by using Botulinum toxins, which are injected directly into the facial muscle in order to restrict muscle movement. Deeply etched lines in the face, often created by intense concentration or constant furrowing, will smooth out with regular use.
Fillers differ from Botox because they are injected into the contours of your face, not to paralyze, but to add volume or plump specific areas. Some fillers are made with hyaluronic acid which fills in wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a substance your body naturally produces to keep skin plump and hydrated.
The Benefits of Injectables
Botox Also Will Help With Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating).
Get a Youthful Glow
As we already mentioned, Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally forming substance in the body. By adding this to the skin, you improve not just volume but the appearance. Hyaluronic acid has been noted for improving the overall condition and adding a youthful glow.
You’ll See Immediate Results
One way your skin benefits from Botox or fillers is the immediacy of the results. It only takes one session for you to notice the difference. However, the best results are achieved over time through the implementation of a treatment plan.
Eliminate the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Botox is for those who are experiencing wrinkles in places where they hold a lot of tension; think frown lines, furrowed brows, etx. By freezing the muscles in these areas, you prevent deeper lines forming.
Add volume to your face
If you want to add volume to your face, fillers are a perfect choice. The best areas to target are thinned cheeks, lips and jaw line.
