Botox Versus Dermal Fillers

When it comes to the world of aesthetic enhancement, more specifically noninvasive aesthetic enhancement, the industry has seen an immense rise in popularity, with more and more men and women having procedures done than ever before. The fact is that according to the team at Miami Wellness, the best medical spa 33310 has to offer, when it comes to fillers and injectables like Botox, patients are absolutely in love with them – from their results, to the lack of side effects, to the simplicity, the ease of the procedure and a whole lot more. And while years of misinformation and scary stories have been spread about Botox, the truth has finallybegun to come out, and the horror stories of lost facial expressions and frozen faces, were proved to be examples of gross misuse and irresponsible patients and doctors. Despite how popular these dermal fillers and injectables like Botox have become and how effective they have been proven to be, its important for patients to understand the differences between them, and when they should choose to use what, and in what ways. While having a competent aesthetic team like Miami Wellness, the best medical spa 33310 has to offer, is vital, at the end of the day, patients make the decision of what they’d like to have done. This is why its vital that they truly understand what goes into each procedure, and understand the differences and the similarities as not all dermal fillers and injectables are made equally. In this article, we will be exploring important things to know about Botox and dermal fillers.

These noninvasive methods of treatment are becoming more and more popular by the day, as patients realize, they are a lot more effective than former non-surgical methods were in decades past. While Botox is still number one, dermal fillers are quickly encroaching on that spot.1 Either way, the more pressing issue is selecting the right option for your skin if you choose to give these treatments a try. The fact is that many think they are highly similar as they both as known to be treatments for wrinkles and fine lines, and they both are highly effective in this treatment, and its hard to truly tell the difference when both are simply just some liquids in a needle. However, for some patients Botox may not be the answer, and may cause harm to their skin, as it is considered to be a bit heavier duty than dermal fillers.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

Before we delve any deeper, its important to understand that Botox is the brand name of a specific botulinum neurotoxin. There are four FDA-approved neurotoxins available in the U.S.: Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeauveau.Botulinum toxin is best used in areas of facial expression such as the frown lines, crow’s feet, and ‘11s’ between the eyebrows. According to the team at Miami Wellness, the best medical spa 33310 has in practice, there is one simple rule patients need to understand when it comes to the use of Botox. Essentially, expression lines need botulinum toxin. Lines at rest need filler.Botox is a great choice for hitting those “crease points” where muscles contract, fillers are best for deep lines that are present even when facial muscles are not contracting. This means that when you have wrinkles caused by smiling or frowning and other facial expressions, Botox is generally the best answer for you. However, if you are suffering from wrinkles and fine lines that are the result of a condition known as facial volume loss, that occurs as we age – presented by lost facial “fat”, collagen and inner “plumping” tissue – then dermal fillers are your answer.

In addition to the treatment of wrinkles and facial expression, Botox is often known as being highly effective for its certain off-label uses, some relatively non-cosmetic uses for Botox are incredibly popular as well: injections in the armpits can help stave off hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), and injections in the jaw muscle can be used to prevent teeth grinding caused by TMJ. A common thing we hear about Botox is that it can cause a frozen face, and you to lose your ability to make expressions – that’s why dermal fillers are way better. This is untrue, while this can occur, it is because of overuse, or patients illegally obtaining Botox and injecting themselves. The fact is that the simplest way to avoid such possible side effects is to not acquire it illegally and inject yourself – but rather, make sure that you only have Botox treatments done by a professional, who is fully licensed and experienced to understand how to inject it and where it should be injected and how much should be injected to achieve your ideal results.
