Botox or filler?

Botox and fillers are both injectables (injections), but they are not comparable. Fillers actually fill deep wrinkles and botox makes the wrinkles disappear by targeting the muscles that cause the wrinkles.

Botox is suitable, if wrinkles are caused by involuntary contractions of the muscles: frowning, for example. In this case we are talking about expression wrinkles when your face is relaxed.

Wrinkles caused by skin sagging have little to do with your muscles. If you want to address this type of skin sagging, we use fillers for this purpose. These are placed closer to the surface of the skin and consist mainly of hyaluronic acid which has a strong ability to retain moisture.

Spierontspanners bij Dr. Penny

Botox is een naam voor het geneesmiddel botuline toxine. Botuline toxine is een natuurlijk eiwit dat wordt aangemaakt door een bacterie, Clostridium Botulinum. Vroeger werd het vooral gebruikt voor geneeskundige redenen, zoals zenuw- en spiertrekkingen. In 2002 keurde het Amerikaanse Food and Drugs Adminstration (FDA) botox goed voor cosmetische behandelingen en dus ook voor het behandelen van rimpels.

Wij werken bij Dr. Penny uitsluitend met botox-merk Bocouture®. 

Wat Bocouture onderscheidt van andere merken is dat het minder eiwitten bevat dan bijvoorbeeld botox, waardoor de kans op allergische reacties minder is.

Botox is injected into a muscle and temporarily interrupts the connection between the muscle and the nerve. As a result, they can no longer communicate with each other, and the muscle relaxes. It is therefore often used to combat signs of aging (wrinkles, crow's feet, ...), but can also be used to treat migraines, excessive sweating and even teeth grinding.
