Amid the range of treatments available to help deal with the signs of ageing, Botox and fillers are two of the most popular. Fillers is a term for a series of different treatments that can help remove lines and wrinkles while Botox is known for its ability to reduce the signs of ageing as well as to help with some medical conditions.
Here are 10 reasons that one or the other might be perfect for you.
- There’s no anaesthetic involved
Unlike many treatments, Botox and fillers don’t require any kind of anaesthetic and all you feel is a small pin prick in the injection site. This means that the processes have virtually no downtime associated with having been under anaesthetic.
- Treatments are very convenience
Part of this is because there’s no anaesthetic involved but also the whole process of having an injection of either Botox or fillers takes very little time. You don’t need more than around 15-30 minutes for most treatment sessions and you can go straight back to work afterwards.
- You can wear makeup immediately
With Botox, in particular, you can wear makeup immediately after the treatment so there’s no need to hide in the house without your makeup on.
- You can get the look that suits you
With the variations in levels of treatments and types available, you can get the look you want. This is why people as young as in their 20s are now opting to start combating the signs of ageing early and using just a little of these treatments to do it.
- Different treatments for different areas
The range of products also means that no matter where the problem lines are located, there is a treatment that can deal with it. For example, Botox is great for dynamic lines while some fillers are ideal for frown lines on the forehead.
- Treatments are semi-permanent
While this might sound like a negative, it can also be a positive. Say you want to look especially great for your wedding day or a big family event – you can use the right treatments to get that special look. And afterwards, go back to minor treatments or none at all for everyday times.
- There are few side effects from the treatments
Unlike invasive surgery, there are almost no side effects from either of these styles of treatment. You may see a little bruising around the injection area but otherwise, people rarely have any problems.
- Botox can help with migraines
Botox is being used to help a number of medical conditions and a perfect example is to help with migraines. Treatment is given around the head and neck area around once every 12 weeks and is already an FDA approved treatment in the US.
- Botox can stop excessive sweating
Known as hyperhidrosis, this is an unpleasant condition where the body produces too much sweat and experience practitioners are now discovering that Botox can help by freezing the muscles that push out the sweat.
- Results can be near permanent
With some fillers, the results are nearly instantaneous so there’s no prolonged wait for the results to work. This is ideal if you are close to an event that you want to look your best for.
