What Botox Can Treat

Botox is a mild form of a neurotoxin produced by a bateria. Injected in very small doses, Botox can be used to smooth out certain wrinkles and lines. In fact, Botox can also be used to treat conditions like migraine, uncontrollable blinking, muscle spasms in neck and shoulders etc.
For cosmetic purposes, Botox has a specific use. It can help reduce dynamic wrinkles.

Dynamic Wrinkles

These wrinkles are caused by frequent muscle movement. When you laugh, your eye corners crinkle, and when you frown, lines appear between your brows. When you lift your eyebrows, small horizontal lines appear on your forehead. When you smoke, you pucker up your lips and this causes wrinkles around the lip region.
When you are young, these wrinkles are temporary, once the muscle relaxes, the lines and wrinkles go away. However, as you keep using these muscles over a period of several years, these lines and wrinkles get permanently embedded into your skin, like the lines in a frequently folded sheet of paper. Botox can help in treating these dynamic wrinkles.

How Botox Works on Dynamic Wrinkles

Botox is usually used to reduce wrinkles on face like frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow's feet near your eyes. It can also be used to smooth out wrinkles between your nose and lips and under the lips. It can be used to tighten your neck skin. With age, neck skin becomes folded in vertical lines and also begins to sag. This is also caused by muscle movement, making it an appropriate target for Botox treatment.
Botox is a neurotoxin. It can be used to cut off signals that control the movement of specific muscles. It is used in very small doses, and when injected into the correct area, it can relax the muscle and give your face a smoother appearance.
The doctor takes a small dose of Botox. This is injected into the neuromuscular tissue. Botox cuts off the communication between the nerves and the specific muscle that causes the wrinkling. When the muscle receives no signals to activate it, it stays relaxed, in effect, it is paralysed. Botox effect is temporary, it wears off after a few months. So, you needn't worry about the muscle paralysis, it will become active again unless you take another Botox injection. Botox can be the best choice as a solution for crow’s feet, and to correct forehead wrinkles.
Botox treatment can be precisely targeted to control specific muscles. Look for experienced doctors at reputable clinics like Kaya to perform the procedure. Performed in safe and well-equipped facilities by experienced doctors, Botox is a safe treatment, causing minimal discomfort.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made from substances like Collagen, Calcium Hydroxyapatite, and Hyaluronic Acid. Currently, many fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally present in your skin around your eyes, and in other regions. This sugar compound hydrates the skin and each Hyaluronic Acid molecule is capable of holding volumes of water a thousand times its own weight.
When injected, dermal fillers do not paralyse muscles. Instead, they fill out wrinkles and restore structure and fullness. Dermal fillers can be used as treatment for wrinkles and folds caused by collagen breakdown, they can add volume to your cheeks and other areas made hollow by tissue loss and collagen disintegration.
Dermal fillers are also injectable, and need a certified and experienced professional to carry out the procedure properly. Done well, it can really restore youth and vitality to your skin.

To Conclude

You should consider Botox when you want to correct wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Choose dermal fillers when you want to rid yourself of deep wrinkles and sagging skin caused by collagen and elastin breakdown.
Botox and Filler effects are both reversible. Botox works by immobilizing muscles, while anti-ageing fillers fill out wrinkles. Botox treatment can last anywhere from three months to a year. Dermal fillers generally last longer depending on the strength of the filler used.
