Amongst our range of treatments, two of the most popular are botox and dermal fillers. They are both most commonly performed as aesthetic injectable treatments, and they both provide different benefits and produce different results depending on what you are looking for. Here, we will break down what botox and dermal fillers offer to clients, as well as the differences between the two, which should allow you to decide which treatment is best for your needs.
To begin with, let’s look at the uses of these treatments. Botox is designed to soften any wrinkles and deep lines on the face, thus helping to make the aging process a little easier. One cannot avoid this, but botox can certainly reduce the visual impact of you getting older. In the case of dermal fillers, these are designed to increase the volume of your face, and at the same enhancing any previous areas of volume loss, plus they can build up other areas of the face where it would be deemed beneficial.
Let’s now look at the effects of these; we know why they are used, but what is the outcome of having such treatments? By having botox, you will have a much smoother, fresher appearance; any wrinkles will be far less noticeable if at all, and you will both look and feel refreshed, rejuvenated and revitalised. As for dermal fillers, they will give you a more powerful and bolder face; gone will be weaker areas, replaced by more puff and weight within your cheeks, and you will generally look and feel healthier, which will allow you to feel stronger mentally as well.
Now we’ll focus on the main difference between botox and dermal fillers, aside from what we have already noted above. Botox tends to remove wrinkles which are always moving, such as at the side of your mouth or at the sides of your eyes, whereas dermal fillers deal with wrinkles that remain static, areas which remain the same regardless of how little or how often you move your face. This explains why the treatments themselves are a contrast, because one is designed to reduce problem areas, whereas dermal fillers are purposed to increase them. As mentioned earlier, what treatment you decide to go for ultimately depends on what it is you wish to achieve, but both will be able to have you looking and feeling better than ever when all is said and done.
