The Battle Between Botox and Filler – Why Both Are Ideal Treatments For You

There is a fine line between Botox and dermal fillers—a blurred line.

For many, it’s difficult to decide which cosmetic treatment should be chosen and for what purpose.

Is it better to select Botox to reduce wrinkles around the mouth or fine lines near the eyes? Furthermore, what treatment option is better?

Actually, both non-invasive cosmetic treatments provide much the same benefits to people looking for a lesser expensive and positive experience than full surgery. Let’s discuss both treatments separately:

Botox – What Is It?

Scientifically known as Botulinum toxin, this naturally occurring substance is actually a purified protein. What does it do? Botox is commonly and popularly used to relax facial muscles (albeit temporarily) and reduce the occurrence of lines and wrinkles.

Additionally, the cosmetic treatment can also be used to treat excessive sweating, a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. Many more uses of Botox are being researched with positive results. Botox is the safest product available in the market, certified both in the medical and cosmetic field.

Facial Fillers – How Good Are They?

Naturally occurring collagen and elastin in our skin lessens (in production) as we age. This is when we begin to lose our youthful appearance—the skin becomes drier, thinner and less able to repair itself.

Lines and wrinkles develop because our body no longer produces Hyaluronic Acid as we grow older. Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments that contain HA or another equally benefiting product that can be injected to targeted areas on the face.

The results of this cosmetic treatment are: lifting and smoothing skin, adding subtle volume and youthful glow, skin rejuvenation.
