Botox effectively treats frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lip lines and many other wrinkles that result from facial expressions. It works by causing facial muscles to relax temporarily. Dynamic wrinkles – those caused by muscle movement-tend to respond best to Botox. In one’s 20s or early 30s, Botox might help to prevent wrinkles and enhance the complexion. Older women opt for it to soften existing lines and prevent new ones from forming.
Static wrinkles are those that are visible when the face is relaxed and at rest. Dermal fillers can help eliminate these wrinkles by adding volume to the dermal layer. Unlike Botox they don’t relax facial muscles, working instead to fill creases and ‘plump’ the skin. So whether you want luscious lips or fewer frown lines, there’s a filler that can help.
Botox is often used in conjunction with fillers (and even lasers) to enhance overall results, so you don’t have to just pick one.
Laser resurfacing is a non ablative laser used to resurface the skin. It helps smoothen out acne scars plus improves fine lines and skin texture. The laser works by penetrating beneath the skin’s texture to the dermis, where it heats the tissue and initiates a healing process that forms new, healthy tissue and regenerates collagen.
Like lasers, micro-needling relies on the skin,s natural healing ability. But since the mechanism doesn’t involve heat, theres no risk of hyperpigmentation if you have darker skin.
If you want smoother skin and less visible pores and acne scars, both procedures are ideal. But bear in mind that micro-needling may take a few more sessions than laser resurfacing to yield the same results. Unlike lasers however, micro-needling’s efficacy does not depend on the skin’s pigment, so ladies of all skin types and tones can have micro-needling done throughout the year. Lasers, if done by an experienced doctor, can lighten the skin somewhat.
