What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

You will sometimes hear anti-wrinkle injections referred to as muscle relaxants or neuromodulators. They are typically used to reduce the appearance and prominence of wrinkles and fine lines. They work simply by relaxing the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. This includes addressing issues such as frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. By temporarily relaxing these muscles, these injections work to soften existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.


What are Dermal Fillers?

As we get older, our skin naturally loses elasticity and volume, leading to sagging and hollowing in certain areas. The primary goal of dermal fillers is to restore this lost volume. Fillers are a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin to add fulness and plumpness to specific areas. Dermal fillers can work in areas such as the cheeks, lips, chin and jawline.


Which One is Right for Me?

Deciding between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles, prevent future signs of aging or soften harsh lines, then anti-wrinkle injections will probably be your best choice. On the other hand, if you want to restore lost volume or achieve a more sculpted appearance, dermal fillers might be the better option for you, as their key pro is their ability to replace volume lost as the skin ages.

With this insight, it is a good idea to consult with a qualified and experienced cosmetic professional who can assess your needs. We will consider factors such as your desired outcomes, facial structure, and overall aesthetic goals to help you make an informed decision.
