Which is the Better Option: Fillers or Botox?

Fillers or Botox

There’s a big difference between Botox injections and facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. Though both can provide similar results for some common problems, there are situations in which one may be much better or produce longer-lasting results than the other. Here’s what you need to know about both options, so you can choose the one that works best for your unique skin.

Understanding Botox and How It Works

Botox injections contain small amounts of botulinum toxin, and while it is related to a form of food poisoning known as botulism at the molecular level, it is important to remember that Botox is safe. It is a purified and natural protein that can relax facial muscles just under the skin, thus smoothing the appearance of wrinkles. It is the first and most well-known product of its kind, so it has been studied extensively. Treatments take just a few minutes, and while there is no real downtime, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling for a day or two. The results last anywhere from two to eight months, and most patients return for touch up treatments after about four months.

Facelifts vs. Botox: Getting the Results You Want

Botox vs Facelift

These days, when it comes to creating a more youthful appearance, there are non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and surgical options available to you. Two of the most popular methods for creating a younger-looking face are Botox injections and facelifts. While both of these options can provide dramatic results, there are some significant differences that may influence your decision.

Understanding the Facelift

Facelifts are surgical procedures, but there are some minimally-invasive endoscopic options available. Patients who want dramatic changes and long-lasting results often opt for facelift procedures because they can last for decades and offer far more visible results than other options. However, there are risks, particularly when it comes to anesthesia. Recovery times vary from patient-to-patient, and many are off work for two weeks or more. Finally, facelifts will result in some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but surgeons do their best to manage this with anti-inflammatories and painkillers.

#1 – Eye Spasms

In fact, some have dealt with eye spasms of some sort for years, learning how to deal with it the best they can.

Botox has been used for cosmetic enhancement for many years now, but a “new” treatment option may just take its place. Mesotherapy is not a new concept, but thanks to Hollywood A-listers who are discovering its full potential, it is sweeping the country and is undeniably the next big thing.

What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy was originally developed to promote fat loss and burn away cellulite with vitamins, minerals, and pharmaceutical ingredients. Traditionally, they are injected into subcutaneous fat and target adipose fat cells, causing them to rupture and die. Although the results are quite limited in nature, and it works better on some areas of the body than others, doctors are finding new ways to make the most of these miniscule injections.
