Do I know the difference between treatment options?
Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers have received noteworthy attention spurred by medical publications, research initiatives, and celebrity usage. Despite the notoriety, many prospective patients are unclear on the actual difference between the two treatment options. The primary difference is the method each treatment uses to achieve results. While anti-wrinkle injections work by reducing muscle activity around the most commonly susceptible areas for wrinkles, dermal fillers work by using hyaluronic acid to boost collagen production and replace collagen loss.
Oftentimes, treatment options are determined by the type of wrinkles you wish to eliminate. For example, anti-wrinkle injections are excellent for dynamic, moving portions of the face (lines that occur with expressions) while dermal fillers may be better suited for ‘static’ lines that are visible even without facial expressions.
Always consult a reputable professional before making a decision.
