Anti-wrinkle injections vs Fillers: What's Right for You?

In the world of aesthetic treatments, the choice between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can be crucial. At Thames Aesthetics, we understand the nuances that differentiate these popular treatments. This detailed guide will help demystify, particularly Teoxane fillers, aiding you in making an informed decision about which treatment suits your individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Understanding Anti-wrinkle injections and Fillers

Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, while often mentioned in the same context, have distinct purposes in aesthetic medicine. Anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox®, a neuromodulator, temporarily relaxes muscles to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles - those formed by facial expressions. Dermal fillers, like our Teoxane fillers, use substances such as hyaluronic acid to fill in and plump up areas affected by static wrinkles or volume loss.

The Uses and Effects of Anti-wrinkle injections and Fillers

Anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective for addressing forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines, with results typically lasting 3-4 months. Dermal fillers, particularly Teoxane, are ideal for enhancing lip volume, smoothing nasolabial folds, and restoring volume in the cheeks. The effects of fillers can vary, but they generally last between 6 to 18 months, depending on the product and individual response.

Making the Right Choice for Your Concerns

Choosing between Botox® and Teoxane fillers depends on your specific concerns. Botox® is better suited for dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement, whereas fillers are more effective for static wrinkles and volume enhancement. It’s also possible to use both treatments in combination for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
