Let's look at Botox and Fillers to see what the hype is all about! Did you know that Botox is now the most popular cosmetic treatment, with more than 6 million treatments administered every single year all around the world?
But what exactly is it, and what does it do?
Well, to give it its full medical finery, it is a neurotoxin (its full name is Botulinum Toxin ), whose purpose is essentially to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by paralysing the underlying muscles.
Or, in simple every-day language, it is essentially a type of Cosmetic Injection or Anti-Wrinkle Injectable, albeit the most widely recognised one of all, owing to its longevity (it is now 25 years old and counting ).
The difference between Botox and Fillers
Botox and fillers are very similar; both are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the entire face area: forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, cheekbones, lip contour and lip volume.
However, there are subtle differences between what are really two slightly different types of anti-wrinkle injectables:
Botox, on the one hand, is an injectable that is used to treat active facial lines - in other words, those lines that have only recently formed. Fillers, on the other hand, are used to treat firmly established wrinkles, reducing them simply by adding volume
Botox is probably now more famous than the many famous people who use it…and who regard it as just another essential part of their self-beautifying regime; look at any picture of any A-lister star and the chances are that the youthful, wrinkle-free face that you see before you has been accentuated enormously by the wonders of Botox or fillers.
From Kylie Jenner to Amanda Brunker
Kylie Jenner of Kardashian fame, is a perfect case in point; yes she is of course blessed with plenty of natural beauty. However, she freely admits that her wonderfully luscious lips are enhanced and maintained by the magic of fillers.
But of course, fillers are no longer designed purely for Hollywood mega stars with bucket loads of money, far from it. In fact and our own Amanda Brunker, author and model, feels that Botox is the only cure for stopping the rot (of ageing! ) and regularly avails of the treatments.
Amanda is a huge advocate of the wonders of cosmetic surgery because, although as a model and celebrity who is very much in the public eye she believes in eating well, exercising often and living as healthily as possible, she also realises that nothing can remove wrinkles from a face quite like Botox / Fillers can!
Botox and Fillers are temporary and completely safe - so enhance your natural look, knowing that nothing is permanent!
The great thing about both Dermal Fillers and Botox is that they are proven to be extremely safe treatments, with less than 1% of all treatments resulting in even minor side effects.
In fact, the main risk that people face is not the treatment itself, but rather the way in which it is administered by practitioners who are simply not well qualified in the area of cosmetic injections.
So, here’s our best advice: if you are considering fillers or some other anti-wrinkle injectable treatment you should only ever consider putting your trust in a clinic that has a proven track record and history, as well of course, as a leading, highly qualified, expert Cosmetic Doctor.
