Botox and Fillers seem similar, but in reality they’re two very different things. Here we are going to discuss about Botox Vs. Fillers in detail.
Both of these techniques are anti-ageing. Both are injectables so the line between Botox vs. Fillers can sometimes seem a bit blurred. So, if you’re just starting to look into and want to find the difference, it might feel confusing working out which is best for you.
Keep reading to find out which is best for you.
Botox Vs. Fillers
Let us first discuss about Botox treatment, what is it and how does it work, its side effects and everything else in detail.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox is a purified form of the botulinum toxin that we get from bacteria. Botox is deadly in larger amounts. But the tiny, regulated amount of Botox given to correct wrinkles has been used safely for decades.
Botox technique works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When those nerve signals are interrupted, the affected muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen. Selected muscles in the face, certain wrinkles may be softened, reduced, or even removed with botox treatment.
Botox and other treatments made with botulinum toxin are sometimes called as neuromodulators or also as neurotoxins.
Treatments made with botulinum toxin are sold under different brand names Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Does Botox have side effects?Side effects with Botox are rare but, as with any injection into the skin, there is a risk of bruising and tenderness at the injection site. Headache can sometimes be experienced by people on the first day of treatment too. Much rarer side effects include flu-like symptoms and difficulty swallowing.
Who Can/Can’t Have Botox?
Botox is generally considered as an extremely safe treatment. But still there are few exclusions. Pregnancy is a contraindication, as is myasthenia gravis and some other rare neurological conditions.
Before Botox Treatment
When getting botox treatment, it’s extremely important that you feel safe in the hands of your practitioner. Never be afraid to ask lots of questions to ensure the job is being done properly and safely.
You should always ask the qualifications of the practitioner and how long they have been doing the treatment. Also, make sure the product being used is one of the proper brands.
If you ever feel coerced into having a treatment, then you should always take a step back and ask if it is right for you.’
Now lets find out what are Fillers and how they are different from Botox.
What are Fillers and How Do They Work?
Dermal fillers are a group of injectable medical products designed to add volume to tissues. There are many different types of fillers, such as hyaluronic acid fillers (the most common type), collagen-stimulating fillers (such as sculptra) and permanent fillers (such as silicone). Fat transfer might also be considered a ‘filler’.
Generally speaking, fillers can be injected into areas to replace lost volume and revitalize the skin. There are many different consistencies and forms of fillers, for use in different areas, and the technology is improving rapidly.’
Dermal fillers results usually last for 18 months, but can be reversed before that time.
Do fillers have side effects?
Side effects with dermal fillers are generally rare, but include bruising, swelling, lumpiness and rarely vascular occlusion (where the injected filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel, causing blockage and damage to the tissue the vessel supplies with blood). The latter is a very rare complication. Side effects such as nerve damage, allergic reaction and infection are extremely rare.
Before getting any treatment the main thing to do is to choose Doctor. You should always look for a surgeon who has good qualifications and experience in the same field.
Since fillers are generally considered ‘inert medical devices’, they don’t necessarily have to be prescribed by a doctor and can be bought over the counter – hence the possibility of fillers being injected by beauticians and hairdressers. So, it is very important to confirm your practitioner is medically qualified.
Who Can/Can’t have fillers?
This is also a safe technique bur few are the exclusions like, you can’t have fillers if you have local infection in the skin, or have previous reaction to filler, or have allergy to any ingredient in the filler. And also pregnancy is a contraindication.
