It is a well-known fact that with age our skin starts to develop wrinkles and crease lines. This can be especially disturbing if you have them in your face. When wrinkles and crease lines develop in your face, it gives you a visible appearance of being old and weary.
These cosmetic treatments enhance your look and help you feel the younger you again! Various medical centers in Abu Dhabi offer these cosmetic treatments depending on your skin type and what exactly you need.
We are all conscious about how we look and appearing old can have a serious and detrimental effect on our confidence. So, if you are worried about your lost youth, then you can certainly opt for procedures like dermal fillers and BOTOX that can help to improve the skin tone and tightness on your face.
With dermal fillers or BOTOX injections, you can enhance your appearance at only a fraction of cost that is normally associated with a traditional facelift.
However, before you sign up for a BOTOX or a dermal filler procedure, it is important that you know the difference between the two. Here are some of the critical aspects of these two procedures that indicate how they are different from one another.
When it comes to BOTOX, most people think that it is the one and only way to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. However, the truth is that depending on the exact spot where the wrinkles and lines have formed and their overall depth, the dermal fillers might prove to be more effective in treating them.
You have to remember that BOTOX and dermal fillers do not perform the same function. While BOTOX cannot fill wrinkles, they serve as an injectable which can work to weaken the muscles which contract to form the lines. The muscles that give rise to the facial expressions when you frown are the same ones that give rise to frown lines.
The BOTOX injections help to treat the dynamic wrinkles i.e. lines that become visible when you are smiling, squinting or frowning. It also stops new lines from forming. On the other hand, the dermal fillers help to treat the wrinkles that are deeper and static and are usually more established that those present when your face is at complete rest.
As the BOTOX injections help to reduce the muscle movements, they temporarily block the signals that move from nerves to muscles. Such decreased muscle movement helps to soften the facial wrinkles and relax the facial muscles. These injections are quite painless and may only lead to minimize redness and bruising.
The patients can typically resume their day to day normal activities just after taking the BOTOX injections. On the other hand, advanced dermal fillers lift and plump the skin and gently replace the collagen lost due to aging
Various dermal fillers can also help in stimulating the collagen-producing process of the body. The dermal fillers can restore the smoothness of the face and can add volume to the cheeks, thinning lips, jaw lines and aging hands. Usually, a topical anesthetic is first applied to the area just prior to the treatment. Once the dermal filler is applied, there can be some swelling and bruising, which eventually diminishes within 1-2 days.
