A quick look at Botox and dermal fillers

At InSkin we offer clinical treatments including Botox and dermal fillers. People often think of these as the same thing but they are not. The confusion is because they are both cosmetic treatments that involve injectables. However, there are many important differences to be aware of.

What you need to know about Botox

BotoxBotox, short for Botulinum toxin, in small doses has aesthetic purposes. A professional can inject it into areas of the face to help relax muscles that cause wrinkles and lines. It can also help with the neck and muscles here that might pull the face down.

The effects of Botox last for around 3-6 months. Side effects are rare but you might experience bruising and tenderness at the site of the injection. This is a treatment that is generally thought of as very safe.

Why use dermal fillers?

dermal fillersDermal fillers are injectable medical products that can add volume to tissues. While there are different types, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common. People often look into having them in areas with skin they want to revitalise or places with lost volume.

The effects of dermal fillers last around 18 months but they can be reversed before then. You might experience bruising and swelling from the injections but this is minor. Again this treatment is very safe.
