Use of Fillers and Botox for Wrinkle Removal
Skin aging is a natural process that begins at the age of 25 in everyone. The fact is that from this age the skin begins to lose some important components that are responsible for its youthful appearance. Do you know our skin loses 1 percent of collagen every year? The amount of elastin and hyaluronic acid produced reduces with the passage of time too. These components keep the skin firm, moisturized, smooth and youthful. Wrinkles appear when all these substances are lost due to the aging of the skin. But, with the use of Fillers and Botox, wrinkle removal is very effective and natural.
The two techniques mentioned above are used to perfectly eradicate the marks of aging. They have been successfully administered for so many years and seem to even increase in reputation every year. These anti-aging techniques are not the same because they solve aging problems using different approaches.
- Facial Fillers
Fillers are facial treatment techniques used to resolve the problems caused by the aging of the skin. This treatment involves the use of collagen and other substances to fill all wrinkled parts on the face. The process increases the levels of collagen and other substances all over the face, thereby refreshing, smoothening and completely rejuvenating the whole outlook of the face. So, this method reverses aging by replacing what was lost back into the region where it is most needed. This method has different types based on the substance used to fill the face, and they are:
- Hyaluronic Acid
This is the use of hyaluronic acid to fill facial wrinkles, especially the nasolabial folds, marionette and lipstick lines. Nasolabial folds are the lines that start from the two ends of the nose and terminate at the mouth. Marionette lines are wrinkles that starts at the end of each nostril to the mouth, they are also referred to as smile lines. Finally, you have the lipstick lines which are wrinkles on top of the lips that make your lipstick appear smeared.
The use of hyaluronic acid to fill the face is the most popular because the result remains intact for a long period of time. It is within the range of about six months to a maximum of two years. You can have repeated filling to cause your face to increase the production of collagen on its own.
- Synthetic Filling
A synthetic material which is an unnatural substance that is not produced by the body is used in this method to fill-up wrinkles. This method is not as popular as the hyaluronic acid discussed above. It is preferred by some because the treatment is the most lasting, not requiring frequent visits to refill. However, it can be disastrous if an error occurs in the process, as this can disfigure your face. There are common side effects like injection bumps, redness, and swelling.
- Autologous Filling
Autologous filling involves the extraction of fat from your body, which is processed and used as the material to fill-up wrinkles. Your stomach, thighs and buttocks are the major regions where the fat can be extracted from. This method is made up of two phases, the first is the extraction phase, and the second is the injection/filling phase. The good news is that all two phases are completed within one appointment. The treatment can last for a longer period of time.
- Collagen Filling
Collagen filling was the very first type created, involving the injection collagen into wrinkled parts of the face to increase its levels. This brought about a supple, youthful look after treatment. The downside of this approach was that treatment lasted just a month. However, the use of artificial collagen has made it safer with better lasting results.
- Botox “Botulinum Toxin”
Botox, which is scientifically known as botulinum toxin is a medical substance used to enforce wrinkle removal. Apart from the use of fillers extensively discussed above, this is another technique used to counter the aging process on the skin. The medical process of using botulinum toxin is different from the filling process, although they both produce the same anti-aging result. The two techniques do the same work of clearing wrinkles but use different approaches.
The use of botulinum toxin to eliminate wrinkles has to do with relaxing the facial muscles which in turn removes the age lines. The important fact to understand is that this method is best fitted for the elimination of dynamic wrinkles, which are the age lines that appear along with a facial expression. These lines can also be called motion lines, referring to the wrinkles that occur only when your face is in motion. These types of lines are found around the outer part of the eye and on the forehead.
The procedure to remove dynamic wrinkles with Botox would relax all the muscles in the upper region of the face. This will prevent lines that appear when you frown or crinkle. Treatment with this procedure continues to be effective for over four months.
