Dermal fillers – better than Botox?

We all know about Botox – it’s a very effective tool for helping to fend off wrinkles and lines without breaking the bank. But if you require a treatment something which lasts longer and makes a contribution to restoring volume to your face, maybe it’s time consider the benefits that dermal fillers can offer.

We can put back what age has taken away

Dermal fillers are a supplement of Hyaluronic Acid – a natural additive that the body routinely produces in order to self-regulate the skin and keep it moisturised. As we get older, our natural supplies gradually diminish, hence the need to give it an artificial boost. A dermal filler procedure does just that: it’s a simple ‘topping up’ of Hydraulic Acid.

A dermal filler procedure will consist of a consultation session, where clients express their desired results and the practitioner explains what can be done, followed by a course of injections. There may be slight bruising and swelling immediately afterwards, but they can be easily hidden with make-up.

More subtle and longer-lasting than Botox

Botox targets the lines in a client’s face caused by facial expressions – and does a great job of doing so – but the duration of results lasts from three to six months. Because dermal fillers have less of a job to do and are more of a subtle, gradual treatment, the results last for up to 18 months – and in some cases, as long as two years.
