The two most common forms of cosmetic non surgical anti wrinkle treatments are Botox and dermal fillers. Although both treatments are administered in the same way and go hand in hand with one another, they both achieve a different result for different purposes.
Simply put Botox is used to relax the muscles and stop them from contracting causing wrinkles and lines across certain areas of the face. Botox brand is certified and extremely safe after decades of research. It is the safest product for the purposes of anti wrinkle treatments. There are no long term side effects and therefore downtime is minimal if any at all. It is suitable for most patients and generally administered around the forehead and eye areas of the face. A consultation prior to treatment is very important to ensure all medical conditions are outlined. Pregnant/breastfeeding ladies would not be suitable.
As we get older our skin begins to lose its natural rejuvenation powers, elastin and collagen diminishes. This results in dryer, thinner skin. Fillers work by relplacing the lack of volume in the skin. By targeting certain areas the doctor can inject filler to lift and smooth certain folds and wrinkles. This also can apply to the lips and other areas on the face. Again the treatment requires no downtime. There may be a possibility of bruising or swelling, but not for long. The treatment takes about 30 minutes including same day consultation. Results can last up to 18 months depending on the area and patient treated. Again a consultation is important to ensure there is no mismatch when treating one particular area upsetting the face as a whole.
