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.
We work exclusively with the real Botox®
Botox is a brand name for the drug botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is a natural protein produced by a bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. It used to be used primarily for medicinal reasons, such as nerve and muscle twitching. In 2002, the U.S. Food and Drugs Adminstration (FDA) approved botox for cosmetic treatments and thus for treating wrinkles.
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.
