When it comes to treatments for reducing the appearance of fine lines, choosing among the numerous options available can seem rather overwhelming. Anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers are two of the options you’ve likely heard of, but do you know what these are, the differences between the two, and which might be the right option for you?
Anti-wrinkle treatments work by causing the facial muscles to relax temporarily. This is accomplished by injecting a purified protein, into the facial muscles. These treatments are effective for frown lines, lip lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other wrinkles that appear along with certain facial expressions. Anti-wrinkle treatments are suitable for many types of clients, from those in their late 20s to those in their 40s and older. Younger clients may choose this treatment to enhance their complexions and prevent wrinkles while older clients find it helpful in softening existing lines and preventing new ones from forming. The treatment has an excellent safety record and carries significant benefits for nearly every client who desires it.
Dermal fillers are also injectable treatments that can tackle the visible signs of ageing, but unlike anti-wrinkle treatments, fillers don’t work by relaxing the facial muscles. Instead, they work by filling and plumping creases in the skin. Dermal fillers are particularly effective at enabling skin to retain its volume and shape as they have the ability to bind to the water naturally present in the dermis, making it fuller and smoother. These fillers can also work to improve the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, further enhancing its youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are suitable for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, around the mouth, on the forehead, and other areas of the face.
So Which One Is Better?
Guess what? You don’t have to (and shouldn’t) choose just one! Anti-wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers are perfect partners in an anti-ageing skin care plan. These two treatments work beautifully together for optimal results. Because they perform differently, with one effectively relaxing the underlying facial muscles and the other smoothing lines and plumping the skin, together they provide a soft, natural-looking result. Fillers can even last longer when used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle treatments.
With these two options at your disposal, your fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance. Either one will have a noticeable effect on your skin, and many clients are satisfied with the results they achieve with one or the other. But to really put a stop to the visible signs of ageing skin, use a combination of both.
