Background on Botox and dermal fillers
Botox is made from Botulinum toxin, a natural substance that is produced by bacteria. Amazingly, researchers discovered that it could be used in small doses to safely and temporarily paralyze facial muscles between and around your eyes that cause wrinkles when overused.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, plump up wrinkles when injected underneath your skin. There are many fillers on the market, containing everything from synthetic materials to cow collagen.
Here at One Peak Medical, we use Juvederm products, a gel-like substance with a hyaluronic acid-base. Each product is tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths.
Similarities and differences between Botox and dermal fillers
Though both Botox and dermal fillers are administered via facial injection, they correct different problems.
Botox is the go-to choice for smoothing crows’ feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and the lines between your mouth and nose. The treatment lasts for about three months and which point most clients opt for a refresh.
On the other hand, dermal fillers add volume to smooth wrinkles in the lower areas of your face. Juvederm’s effects are apparent immediately and usually last between six months and two years, depending on the specific product used.
Fillers can plump up thin lips and the area below your cheekbones, which can look hollow as you get older. Fillers also do a great job minimizing your acne scars.
