Skin Enhancement & Anti-Aging Solutions
Neurotoxins (Botox/Dysport) and facial fillers are effective methods of reducing signs of aging. Both of the procedures have become increasingly more popular. Yet, it is often asked what is the difference between the two, as they are often confused as one another and considered synonymous. The truth is that they are not and tackle specifically different problemsBOTOX and Dysport reduce the activity of the muscles that cause wrinkles such as frown lines, worry lines and crow’s feet. They works by temporarily blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, thereby reducing muscle movement and causing wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox® is also used by experienced injectors to lift areas of the face and extend the life of some dermal filler applications. Neurotoxins are quick-acting, with results typically visible within 14 days, and lasting for 3 months.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are a range of products that fill depleted facial features , and in many instances stimulate collagen growth. Although each dermal filler has unique attributes, in general, most dermal fillers work in two ways. First, most of the fillers plump and lift the skin gently to replace collagen loss caused by the natural aging process. Secondly, most of the fillers also stimulate the body to produce its own natural collagen; some help more than others. Certified Injectors use dermal fillers in a variety of ways to lift features of the face, correct wrinkles and to restore smoothness and volume to the skin. The effects of most fillers are nearly instantaneous.
