If you are new to the world of aesthetic injectables, you can get confused by the many different terms and treatments. Two in particular sound like they might be similar, but are in fact different. At Liberty Hall in Leicester, we offer both of these treatments – dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.
They are separate treatments and you would have them for varying reasons. Thankfully, our expert nurse Karen is on hand to help you out, whatever you decide to go for. To make things easier, we will see you for a consultation first at our Leicester beauty salon and be able to advise which treatment is right for you and your particular situation.
So, we will look at the difference between dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. But first, let’s see where they are similar.
Similarities Between Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Injections
People use both to reduce the signs of ageing and are delighted that the results are evident really soon after treatment. They are both non-surgical procedures and minimally invasive. You will barely feel a thing with both treatments.
You can usually get back to work straight after the treatment without any issues at all. This makes them both hugely convenient. You could even nip out in your lunch break!
And now for the details that are specific to the two different types of treatment.
Dermal Fillers – Need to Know Information
Dermal Fillers are injected into the facial skin areas, helping to rehydrate and regain lost volume in the skin. They treat static lines around the lower part of the face and rejuvenate the lip line. You can see the results almost instantly and they even improve over the fortnight after you have them done. A single filler treatment will last between six months and a year, meaning you get some great value for your money,
The fillers generally use hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin. As well as rehydrating, it helps the skin stretch, flex and get rid of those wrinkles as well as acne scars.
Our highly trained specialist injects the filler into the dermal layer of your skin, where it fills, enhances and restores volume loss into your facial contours. You may even notice an improvement in the texture of your skin.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections – Need to Know Information
Anti-wrinkle injections involve administering a natural protein into the facial muscles used for contraction to relax them. This reduces the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles you get as a result of moving your facial features.
This includes frown lines, crows’ feet and forehead lines, all of which you will start to see gradually improve during the week or two following your anti-wrinkle injection and the effects should last around five months. It can also prevent lines from deepening as you age.
You gain a subtle natural looking result. We will even invite you back to the clinic a fortnight later to check that you are happy with the results, which is one of the advantages of choosing to have your treatment at a reputable beauty salon.
This treatment is more commonly referred to as botox and can also be used to counter excess sweating and migraines too.
What is Baby Botox?
Baby botox is an advanced version of the traditional anti-wrinkle injection. It is even more targeted at providing the natural look that people want from their anti-ageing treatment. The main difference is that we use smaller amounts of the protein in the process and so the result is more subtle.
It is also referred to as micro-botox and is exclusive to the face, rather than other areas of the body that traditional botox can treat. Baby botox is ideal for someone wanting to try botox for the first time, but doesn’t want to commit to the full treatment. In addition, younger customers might use baby botox to prevent the development of lines in the future.
You would typically use baby botox for the forehead, crows’ feet, brow furrows, jawbone, lips, lip fillers, frown lines and neck.
