That should have been a simple search. Why did you get so many irrelevant results?
There are several reasons, really. One is that many people don’t understand precisely what anti-wrinkle injections are. Some confuse them with dermal filling – another injectable aesthetic treatment which can eliminate wrinkles and restore your youthful appearance, but in a very different way.
The thing is, Google isn’t just being daft. Many of the people who search for one type of treatment really are interested in the other – and sometimes both. Read on to find out which type of aesthetic treatments might be the best for you.
What are anti-wrinkle injections, exactly?
All injectable anti-wrinkle treatments work essentially the same way. The natural proteins injected work to relax the fine musculature beneath the skin, preventing your face from tightening and and stretching to the extremes it normally would. The injections do not affect the muscles which control your facial expression, and they do not numb or paralyse any part of your face.
Anti-wrinkle injection treatments are effective in two ways:
- First, they help to relax the muscle tone of your face. This reduction of tension reduces the appearance of fine wrinkles, and many clients report feeling less stressed simply because they are not carrying that tension int her face.
- Second, getting anti-wrinkle injections around twice per year can greatly reduce the amount of skin stretching you experience over the years. This can often delay the formation of new wrinkles wrinkles for years.
How is that different from Botox?
It isn’t, really. Botox is just one brand of anti-wrinkle injection treatment. There are many others, all basically the same. They all use the same set of chemicals, based on botulism toxin A – which is what ‘Botox’ was named after.
Is there any real benefit from using ‘name brand’ Botox? Not really. Surely, there are unreliable manufacturers in the world, and we would never advise using a suspiciously inexpensive anti-wrinkle treatment. But if you select from only reputable brands, as Simply Cosmetic does, you can be certain of the quality and effectiveness of your treatment, no matter what brand is on the label.
How is dermal filling different from anti-wrinkle injections?
Dermal fillers inject a safe, long lasting and naturally occurring compound called hyaluronic acid (or HA) under your skin. The HA lasts for anywhere for 6 to 12 months, working to hydrate and add volume to the tissues of your face the whole time. In addition to revitalising the skin by restoring its youthful resiliency, this can subtly improve the contours of yoru face, greatly enhancing your new, more youthful appearance.
