What Is The Difference Between Botox And Dermal Fillers Near Harlow?

Botox and dermal fillers have become very popular treatments for people who are looking to enjoy their youthful looks for as long as possible. These non-surgical treatments reduce the visibility of lines and give the skin a smoother, younger look, but what is the difference and which treatment would be most beneficial for me? Botox is a treatment, which is most commonly used to target lines and wrinkles; it works by blocking the transmission of nerve signals to the muscles in the face, thus reducing muscle contraction. Botox is a purified form of the toxin botulinum toxin type A and it is often used for crow’s feet and lines around the mouth, nose and forehead. Dermal fillers are another effective treatment for lines and wrinkles, but they can also be used to add volume and plumpness to the skin and to enhance the lips for a more voluptuous pout. Fillers are designed to combat the signs of reduced stores of collagen and elastin in the skin and they are an effective treatment for dull and sagging skin, as well as for lines. Both treatments are temporary solutions for ageing skin and the procedures are very similar. Fillers last slightly longer than Botox at around 609 months; Botox lasts around 3-5 months. The procedures for both treatments involve injecting the substance into targeted areas of the skin using a very thin needle. The procedures are painless and quick, lasting only around 15-30 minutes, and there is no recovery time needed for either treatment.
