Posted: Jun 26, 2017
There are various cosmetics procedures available to enhance the appearance of the aging skin and to fight the wrinkles, which occurs with the increasing age. Two popular cosmetics procedures are Botox and Dermal fillers. Each of these has got their advantages and disadvantages. Each of these two cosmetic procedures should be used for specific, conditions. To know more about these two cosmetic procedures, this article will take a look at Botox vs. Dermal Fillers.
The difference between- Botox vs. Dermal Fillers
If one has got the simple lines of expressions on the face, which can occur with the increasing age, Botox is the procedure they should opt for. The facial lines at rest will need fillers instead of the Botox. Botox is the best option for those lines, where the muscles contract and on the other hand, fillers are the best choice for the lines which occur in the places where the muscles do not contract. Since each of these two has their specific roles in treating the facial lines which can happen with the increasing age, one should not mix up the two, when treating the lines.
For the Forehead lines and furrow lines and crow’s feet, Botox is the best option that one opts for. For the places such as nose correction, laugh lines, lip lines and the sleep wrinkles, one should use the fillers to treat these issues on the face.
Botox is also used for the treatment of the hyperhidrosis, i.e. excessive sweating. In fact, Botox is one of the most tested products in the market. However, those with the damaged nerves and muscle issues should best avoid Botox. One mustn’t get the Botox if they are lactating mothers or if one is pregnant.
The Botox will offer the best result from 3-6 months range. It will differ from one individual to another.
Fillers help to add the volume to the face that a person may have lost due to aging and high impact lifestyle, such as running. Even though there are no risks for using fillers when the person is pregnant or lactating, it is best to avoid this procedure during this condition.
The filler treatment will last from 18-24 months, and one can top up the treatment after the effects of the fillers used on the face start to diminish without any dramatic change.
Fillers can be more expensive that the Botox treatments.
There are various forms of fillers available that one can get.
The fillers are considered to be more effective than Botox, and this is because the result of the fillers lasts much longer compared to the Botox.
There are some possible side effects of Botox, and these are bruises at the places where the Botox was injected, drooping eyelids (effect goes away after few weeks), redness of the eyes and irritation and headache.
Some of the possible side effects of fillers are an allergic reaction, itching, numbness, scarring, and sores.
