What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment made from botulinim toxin that can be used for a variety of health purposes, but used primarily to treat and prevent creases in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet.
Botox is a simple noninvasive treatment administered by a dermatologist. Botox temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, on the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Botox is administered through a few tiny injections in one ten minute treatment. Within days, you’ll notice improvements, which can last up to four months.
Does Botox hurt?
The pain has been described as similar to that of an ant bite, lasting for a few seconds.
How long does Botox last?
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the face, and lasts anywhere from three to six months.
Botox or Filler?
The important things to consider when choosing between Botox and facial fillers is what kind of wrinkles you want to get rid of and how. Botox is the better choice for dynamic wrinkles as it will reduce their motion and visibility. These wrinkles occur when the face is in motion or making expression. They are usually seen on the forehead and around the eyebrows.
Facial fillers are ideal for static wrinkles, which are visible even when your face is relaxed and making no expression. These areas are depleted and sunken in and will benefit from the fullness that facial fillers give them.
Knowing the difference between Botox and facial fillers and how they work matters significantly when seeking treatment for your wrinkles. Whichever one you choose, both forms of treatments are very efficient ways to regaining and maintaining a youthful appearance.
