BOTOX® and Fillers – Same thing different name?
Many people are either confused or oblivious about the functions of BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin A)
and Fillers as they are both primarily and popularly used to reduce wrinkles. It is a fact that both can be
used to reduce wrinkles but the similarity stops there as they work in two very different ways.
Fillers, as the name suggests do exactly just that, they fill while BOTOX® on the other hand relaxes.
Wrinkles created by tightened muscles can be relaxed by BOTOX® treatment. The make-up of each of
these substance is hugely different as well.
Fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your body. There are various brands
and types for different uses and each doctor will have their own preference and recommendation based
on the patient. Fillers can be used for augmentation of the lips, nose, cheeks, chin and to reduce the
appearance of smile lines, marionette lines, sunken eyes and fine wrinkles. The effect is usually very
natural and last for about 6 months.
BOTOX® or “Botulinum Toxin Type A” is used to relax the muscles around targeted areas of the face and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and around the eyes.
Both these treatments are very effective on the right candidate and can complement each other to produce a very desirable end result. BOTOX® and Fillers treatment are quick becoming the alternative to plastic surgery for many women and men as they do not have to go through the pain and trauma associated with surgery. The treatments only cost a fraction of the price of surgery and do not require downtime. What is most remarkable is that with Botulinum Toxin A and Fillers treatments are semi-permanent which means they are reversible most of the time or will wear off after a time period so you can get back to normal should you wish.
