The skin loses its support and becomes weaker and less flexible which leads to the formation of wrinkles. There are two main types of wrinkles which are:

    Dynamic wrinkles: It occurs when the muscle is used to form facial expressions and disappears when the muscle is relaxed as the skin springs back to its original position.

    Dermal filler Vs Botox

    Botox and dermal fillers are both popular cosmetic treatments used to address different signs of aging and improve the appearance of the skin. However, they work in distinct ways and target different concerns.

    Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles in the treated area. It inhibits muscle contractions, which helps reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles—wrinkles that form due to repeated facial expressions, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

    Dermal fillers work by adding volume and filling in wrinkles or areas with lost volume. They help plump up the skin and smooth out static wrinkles—wrinkles that are present even when the face is at rest. Fillers can also be used to enhance facial contours and restore lost volume due to aging.

    The targeted treatment areas for dermal filler and Botox are as below:
