What can Dermal fillers do for me?
Dermal fillers are made from a naturally-occurring substance in the body known as hyraulic acid, responsible for giving your skin the youthful volume it has in its younger years. As the ageing process develops, this substance reduces – dermal fillers works by replacing your skin’s levels of hydraulic acid, giving your face a rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers can help the following areas:
- add volume and smoothen out deep creases and lines.
- crow’s feet.
- add volume to thin lips.
- add volume to cheeks to improve their shape.
- fill hollow areas under the eyes.
- add volume to lower cheek and temple area.
How do dermal fillers and Botox differ?
Whilst dermal fillers are used to plumpen and smoothen out areas of the face, Botox’s main goal is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by preventing muscle movement in the face.
What can Botox do for me?
Botox injections work in a different way to dermal fillers as mentioned above, blocking muscle movement in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. As with dermal fillers, Botox does not affect your natural features – instead it enhances them whilst giving your face a more youthful-looking appearance by targeting specific areas. Botox (also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a naturally-occurring protein. Common areas that patients choose to target include horizontal brow line, lines that have appeared as a result of lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking alcohol, crow’s feet and bunny lines.
