What is different between Botox and Fillers

BOTOX AND FILLERS

Both are used to treat various signs of aging especially facial wrinkles but the way of performing them is different. Let’s see how both of these methods differ from each other.


Botox: It is a neurotoxin with blocks the action of nerves on muscles. It is use to target muscles that form wrinkles. It relaxes the muscles that results in softening the wrinkles.


Dermal Fillers: They stimulate the production of natural collagen that fills the space in different layers of skin to correct wrinkles and add desired volume to lips, cheeks and chin.
There are different types of dermal fillers, the most common and popular is hyaluronic acid.


When you are choosing between Botox and dermal fillers, the most important point to consider is that what type of wrinkles you want to treat and how. Botox is better option to treat dynamic wrinkles, which occurs when your face is in motion or making expressions and they usually formed around the eye’s corners (crow’s feet), between the eye brows and on forehead. Dermal fillers are better option for static wrinkles which are clearly visible when your face is relaxed without any expressions and these areas are depleted and can be reduced with fullness of fillers.


What is Botox?


Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium from which Botox is derived, is found in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, and forests.
The bacterium can also be found in the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish and in the gills and organs of crabs and other shellfish. Such naturally occurring instances of Clostridium botulinum bacteria and spores are generally harmless. Problems only arise when the spores transform into vegetative cells and the cell population increases. At a certain point, the bacteria begin producing botulinum toxin, the deadly neurotoxin responsible for botulism.


Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
