As we age, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear on our faces, making us look older than our years. Fortunately, there are several cosmetic treatments available that can help reduce the signs of aging and give you a more youthful appearance.
Two popular treatments that you may have heard of are neurotoxins and dermal fillers. While both types of injections are used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, they work differently and are used in different areas of the face. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the differences between neurotoxins and dermal fillers, how they work, and which one may be right for you.
What are Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins are a type of cosmetic injection that works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the most effective neurotoxins today that we offer here at Evexia Medspa in McLean, VA is Xeomin.
Xeomin and other neurotoxins are best suited for the upper part of the face, including the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. These areas are prone to wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions, such as frowning and squinting. By temporarily preventing these movements, neurotoxins can help smooth out these lines and wrinkles.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injection that adds volume to the face, smoothing out lines and wrinkles. They are made of a gel-like substance that is injected under the skin to plump up the tissue.
Dermal fillers are best suited for the lower part of the face, including the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips. These areas are prone to sagging and wrinkling as we age, so adding volume can help restore a more youthful appearance.
The most common dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Belotero®, Lips™, Radiesse®, RHA®, and Versa™. These fillers are safe and effective, and the results can last for several months.
Both neurotoxins and dermal fillers are safe when administered by a trained, licensed professional. It is important to choose an experienced injector who can evaluate your skin and recommend the best treatment for your needs.
